In Sacramento, residents of the city who did not grow up in the city or region share a common thought that, people in Sacramento seem to be moving a bit slower than most cities on the racial acceptance spectrum.
Residents of Sacramento who are not native to the city claim that although the city is very diverse, it is actually more focused on assimilating Black culture rather than accepting and encouraging of the overall Black essence.
Many Black residents who did not grow up in the area report that the tone in conversation is more aggressive versus assertive when speaking amongst residents during business exchange or in a service setting in Sacramento, you are more likely to feel like you are being “talked down” to.
Moreover, many Black's feel that the conversation will not feel like much of an exchange as it does a lecture; The conversations tend take a superior vs. inferior undertone where it is obvious that one person feels they are more intelligent, worthy, capable and/or selectively chosen to educate the other person rather than exchange thoughts with them.
Black female residents report that whenever they did feel like they were having an even exchange, they would be referred to as “sweetie” or “honey” making them feel as if they were a sweet young lady asking a question to an aunt, parent or teacher rather than a peer while they were over the age of thirty.
Black male residents claim that they felt strange being called "son", "boy" or "dude" in professional conversation as it made them feel like the person they were conversating with on a professional level felt a need to bring the professionalism down by calling them “dude” or make them feel inferior by referring to them as, “son.”
Only 2 Black male residents claimed to be called “boy” in conversation. In one instance,
“ …boy, if you could get there in 15 minutes that would be great” and the other, “awe c’mon' boy, you're sure to get double your salary in commission this month.”
Both males and females in the area disclosed that they had the experience they shared with person's of all races but more commonly experienced such interactions with non-Black persons in the Sacramento region.

Is Sacramento behind in it's ideologies about Black's?
Does the city have residents who truly accept all for who they are or does the city have a tolerance for others while still holding onto negative stereotypes of inferiority that spill out subtly in conversation?
No one is better than anyone else.
