Hi there, I'm quite far from graduating, but that hasn't stopped me from daydreaming about my future and where I would like to work!
I am very interested in working in the rural south - Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi Georgia. I am single with no dependents so it would be easy for me to move anywhere. My only concern is the level of racism apparent in rural areas. I'm of mixed heritage and have an ambiguously ethnic look. No one would mistake me for black nor white, but possibly Hispanic or mulatto, although its a reach in either case. I am originally from Canada and am quite oblivious to overt racism - I find it more curious than offensive. I'm not really worried about being offended or called names or anything like that - my concerns are mainly safety, and the ability to get a job in a rural area. I would appreciate any thoughts! Thanks!
