Got a job offer in Irvine, CA and have researched the demographic, and there are only 2,000 black people. I have a black husband and mixed daughter, who will be starting preschool soon and I want her to feel comfortable and see children of all races. I know Orange County doesn't have a huge black population, and being from Texas, this is something you see quite often, I would love a similar town to live in. I wouldn't want a huge commute either, but will do what it takes to feel welcomed and comfortable in the town I live in. I'm all for trying new things and even dealing with being the minority for the sake of a good job for a while, but with so much change in our lives coming up, picking a town where my husband and daughter can feel accepted would make things a lot easier!
