Am I the only person who's been to Florida and been taken aback by the extremely white culture there?

Loved it, but the lack of people of colour at virtually all the entertainments was - I thought - really striking - different in my experience to New York and Las Vegas.

As you can tell it's all about culture with me.

I've noticed that in many different states. I lived in Chicago for a couple of years and encountered very little racism with blacks and whites mixing and treating each other with respect.

My current girlfriend is black and from Michigan, we see subtle racism on a daily basis. I even had one woman come up and tell me in a restaurant when I was going to the bathroom, "you shouldn't be with her like that" Some places are really bad, you can tell it a mile away. California, NY, Vegas, very little shit like that.

I've been here almost 20 years and lived in a few different states. There's always been a racist undertone, but Trump has jump brought it out ten fold. They got rid of the confederate flag and racist terms, only to replace them with other words. The same people that flew the confederate flag have now just replaced if with the blue police flag. Only that's acceptable now, but anyone with half a brain knows what it's really about.

I've been to Florida and the parks many times, and can't say I really noticed. There were plenty 'people of colour' or whatever the proper expression is nowadays, both working at kiosks etc and as tourists. Many of them came from far away places judging by the accents/t-shirts/baseball hats, rather than native Floridians. But I wouldn't say it had really stuck out one way or another.

Well, apart from.......

Things might seem bad here but I think we are way behind these dudes. I know some pretty sensible people over there who strangely cannot see a thing wrong with trump. Maybe he has mass hypnotised people
I know some otherwise sensible reasonable people here , who think Farage talks for them , they followed him out of Europe. I really don't think we are that far apart. The only difference is, thankfully , your average Joe isn't armed to the teeth.

If Trump gets left on his own in the Oval Office on Jan.20th with the nuclear codes I think I'm going to explode!

He (trump) even gave us the world prior notice that if he lost he was going to call out cheating. This was 3months before the fckin election šŸ˜«. He has made America the laughing stock of the world, if only they knew.
Lets drink bleach, says the leader of the most powerful nation on earth. Or should I say, the former most powerful.

If it was b.l.m that "stormed the building" the number of dead would of been huge.
Trump and his gun loving following are a scary thought
Correct me if I'm wrong here but BLM attacked many innocent people,looted shops,burnt a police station down....and. It was pretty much all pushed as positive by MSM.

All for the sake of a serial convict,that was drunk,had 3 different drugs in his system,had Covid,and repeatedly disobeyed the police warnings.

All pushed as positive? Don't talk such shite.

You have a point though, since he had a criminal record he deserved to be murdered by the police šŸ¤Ø

Nobody said that was right either but the point still stands on how differently each group was treated by law enforcement

I'm sorry I didn't type down the clip I wanted to show correctly(I must have mistaken a '1' for an 'I' or something,) but it shows somebody pulling out a gun and another of a policeman (and anyone who knows me well will know I'm never their biggest fan) but it quite clearly shows him being crushed in a door by about 20 people.Now Trump and his Republican followers quite clearly incited this.

That last sentence could be laid at a lot of peopleā€™s doors, Boris or the Donald included for example. Doesnā€™t mean they deserve to be pinned to the ground until they suffocate to death. On the other hand...
