Do black home owners and renters feel comfortable living in a predominantly white neighborhood?
In areas of the United states where one percent or less of the population is Black or African-American.
Are they generally welcomed and respected . Or have there been reports of incidences?

I'm Black and grew up in an all White neighborhood, country club and all. Never felt uncomfortable a single day in my life.

The unfortunate reality is that many black neighborhoods have high crime rates and a lower standard of living. So a black person is generally going to be happier living in a white neighborhood.
There has been a very insidious race-based system in place since at least the 1950s called redlining, an artificial segregation supported by banks and municipalities. This is also a way to keep schools partially segregated.

All it takes is one bad apple. It's my belief that bad apples are not as common as they used to be.

As a black citizen of the United States, I detest the term African-American. I was not born in Africa, not do I have current relatives that reside in Africa. This is a label that someone decided to attach to black citizen of the United States.
I had no input as to this decision.
As to the neighborhood, I decide to purchase a house, I do not go from door to door seeking the race of my new neighbors. I reside in a neighborhood I am able to afford based on my income and ability to pay or want to pay for the house I want to purchase.
Each person, no matter the label you or anyone else want to place on an individual is considered a human. I am able to live in any neighborhood and not feel uncomfortable.
I am normally accepted and respected in any neighborhood I reside. I do not do anything that would cause my neighbors not to respect or trust me.
I am surprised that this is a question that is asked in the year 2018.
I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.
