I live in and absolutely love California. No other state compares in my mind (industry, career opportunities, salary, culture, diversity, food, weather, landscape, political inclination, etc). If I were to consider temporarily (2-3 years) moving to another state to accumulate more wealth on the way to FI, what states (specifically cities) would make me least miserable?
From the moderator, for discussion. Should white males be concerned that current focus on diversity will lead to negative results If Yes, why and under what conditions If No, why not?

Okay for the last time - the fact that Cities tend to have higher crime (which has been declining over the years ) is a function of what cities are and what they attract - big populations (people moving here for opportunities), social/economic variations resulting in higher possibilities of crime. Cities also tend to have a more diverse demographic than smaller towns, suburbs which tend to have less economic and social diversity. If you have to use crime as a metric for comparison....(contd.)

Everyone: We asked for diversity and visible minorities in this video. This edit shows 90% whites dudes... The producer: The guy in the first shot is latino and there’s also an Irishman and an Australian bro at the end 😑
President Trump recently signed an executive order banning US service members and federal contractors teaching certain components of diversity training.

With so many focusing on DE&I as of late, this seems like a big shock to the system.

They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity.
