When my son went looking for an apartment in affordable neighborhoods, the names on the directory told the story. In most buildings, he would have been the only "white man" there. And please don't take that as racist on my part. If you think they love us, you're mistaken. My sister who was married to a Mexican was called by his family "la gabacha." It is a slang, derogatory term used for white Americans. I find Americans in general are much more open to others than others are to us.
