Hello, i'm considering a move to Houston and i'm curious about the racial climate over there. Responses from ANYONE in the corporate world is appreciated (whether you consider yourself a "professional" or not) 1. I know everywhere in America has a racial climate but have you ever felt that being black has limited your upward mobility in the professional world? 2. Are professional blacks in Houston more respected than lower-class blacks? 3. What other regions have you lived in as a professional? Do you feel you faced more limits to upward mobility in Houston than in other cities?
