There were 2 muslim kids at my high school in a heavily conservative rural area of the US, one of whom I was friends with. To my knowledge, neither of them had to deal with any racism, and this was just a few years after 9/11 when there was far more anti-Muslim sentiment than there is now. I think you'll be fine, unless anti-Muslim racism is far worse in the big cities than it is in the rural areas.
