I needed to have a  crown replaced before traveling from Santa fe, New Mexico to another state.  I called up 1800dentist, and chose the only dentist that was "registered" with their company. 
 
New Mexico, is state that has a high populace of hispanics then whites, a sprinkling of blacks, asians, etc... if you're from places like New York,  northern CA, etc., you have to "put on the brakes".. it's a very laid back area, and in certain areas, you're expectations of "service" and "hustle" have to be put on hold for a while.
 
When i walked into the dentist office.. it was obvious that they truly want to put on a good impression. Very ambient lighting, indoor water falls, very professional staff, etc. 
 
Then i noticed something.. There wasn't one brown or dark skinned hispanic in the place.. The head dentist was a light skinned hispanic. with absolutely no accent.  The rest of the staff was the same, light skinned, without a trace of an accent.  they would speak it if they "had" to.. but otherwise..
 
The light skinned hispanics were the ones that worked with the patients, or in the front office.. the only "Morenas" or "Negras" i encountered were either cleaning instruments  or janitorial..

The people in general?  no one gives a rat's a*&&s about your race.:)  You never see white folks staring you down.  Except maybe one or two of the hispanics and the american indians, that's where you'll find some ignorance.  but not much. 
 
There are a few black folks living mostly in Albuquerque.  the black men have nothing to do with there own kind...
 
when i arrived there, i was supposed to meet a couple of  AA friends of our realtors.  One of them was a medical "consultant", the other a physician.  the consultant was on the phone with me for about 10 mins. after realizing i was AA - he got off the phone.  the physician, apparently found out through the realtor that he and i were the same color, and never showed up for a luncheon date.
 
Neither of them, ever seeing me. LOL..
 
The only time i've ever experienced prejudice is on the ski-slopes..the ski patrol guys took a while to get over of their absolute shock, then you have most of the hispanics, folks from TX, and folks that come from the deep south .. you should see the looks on their faces when they see me coming down the slope!  some of them have whipped out camcorders,  cameras, use their cell phone camcorder/cameras, to record me... the staring, text messaging, racial slurs,  finger pointing all day can get pretty annoying after a few hours.  especially after two weeks of solid ski-ing.
 
Many of the folks from the south, have "confessed" to me while we're riding up on the ski-lifts that they were told from their AA friends  that "black folks don't ski"..
 
So.. to be honest?  the only people that aren't accepting of AA's? are our own..:(
