Is Dickinson, North Dakota racist? The short answer is, yes, but not very much, comparatively speaking.
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the least amount of racism like San Francisco, and 10 being the highest amount of racism like Apartheid in South Africa in the 1960s and 1970s, Dickinson is about a “4”. You might think that a “4” is pretty bad, but I want to explain why it isn’t as bad as you think.
The people that are from Dickinson, or western North Dakota, they don’t necessarily think that whites are better than blacks, they just don’t like people who are from some place else. They don’t believe that blacks are less trustworthy than whites, they just don’t trust people who are from some place else. It is not that you are black, it is that because you are black, you must be from some place else.
The people that are from Dickinson, or western North Dakota, they don’t necessarily want to do anything mean to black people, but since they are from some place else, they might wish that they would leave. It is not that they don’t want to live or work with black people, it is just that they are wary of black people because they are from some place else.
The unfriendliness that black people might experience in Dickinson from the local people, might feel like racism, but the local people treat all of the people from some place else like this.
The Lutheran Church, which is the second most powerful and influential Church in North Dakota, is very welcoming and generous to black people, almost as if they are trying to make up for two hundred years of mistreatment of black people. Lutheran Social Services which is headquartered in Minneapolis, and is very active in North Dakota, is constantly trying to help black refugees from around the world.
When neo-Nazis or White Supremacists groups tried to get established in North Dakota in recent years, the citizens very actively tried to drive them out. In recent years, North Dakotans do not want any neo-Nazi or White Supremacist activities in North Dakota.
The women in Dickinson are tired of white men, because there are so many white men. The women in Dickinson have watched movies, ESPN, and pornography, and now they all want black men.
Everything that I wrote up above would make Dickinson about a “2”, on a scale from 1 to 10, on racism. However, because there are many white male workers from the South, Idaho, and Montana living in Dickinson, North Dakota, their attitudes towards blacks probably ends up making Dickinson about “4” overall, on a scale from 1 to 10, on racism.

Dickinson is much more racist than a 4. I would categorize the city as a 7. The first time I went to Dickinson was to visit my boyfriend going to school there. I had forgotten a couple things so one of my boyfriend’s friends (an African American male) drove us to Walmart. In the parking lot a group of young white men pulled guns out on my boyfriends friend and started calling him the N-word. I have never seen such violence in my life. Apparently a majority of the young white men must have tiny dicks and think that becoming a neo-nazi makes them better!
Wal Mart parking lots are dangerous, no matter what town you are in. If you hadn’t had a black guy with you, you might have been abducted.
i live in dickinson and truth is negros are not wanted here at all few white girls would touch one of them white men work in the bakken while blacks work at walmart in short go the hall back to africa
You would think that the young white men and the middle-aged white men who get up at 4:30 a.m. every morning to go to work for twelve hours each day in the oil field would have the respect and admiration of the young white women and the middle-aged white women in Dickinson, but this is not the case at all. The white women in Dickinson are sick and tired of these men, they spend their money on their big four-wheel drive trucks, four wheelers, ATVs, boats, fishing equipment, and hunting equipment.
The white women in Dickinson, they have watched movies, they have watched the NBA and NFL, they have watched porn on the internet, and they want black men. Especially the women who work in the convenience stores,restaurants, and bars in Dickinson, they want to go cruising around in a Cadillac with a black man, go get some meth, crack, or heroine, get high, and have sex with a black man. This is what the Kardashians do, and they want to do it too.
No, the white women in Dickinson don’t want the black men to go back to Africa, they fantasize about black men all day long, and now their dreams are coming true, they can have a black boyfriend now.
