The problem is that when you are in the middle of nowhere America it is often less diverse. Therefore as an outsider, foreigner, or a guy with a funny accent, you are more of an outcast or more likely to be the target. If you are in a big city in the US, particularly on a coast or college town, you are just another person, and it is easy to fit in.
