Being a “person-of-color” doesn’t hurt your ability for advancement in Idaho.

Some of the stereotypes people may hold of the Intermountain West and even some of the old states of the Confederacy are debunked by the results.

WalletHub has a listing of race relations across the country.  Some of the stereotypes people may hold of the Intermountain West and even some of the old states of the Confederacy are debunked by the results.  The Gem State finishes second of 51 in racial integration (Washington, D.C. is also counted and has an abysmal score).  Montana is 8th, Wyoming 16th and Utah 19th.  Hawaii had the overall best score.

I’ll posit a theory.  People here live by the Good Book and they judge people on character and not by the color of their skin.
