Well at college in Daytona Beach there are loads of people from all around the world all attending college there. Then there are the local 'yokels' as the Yankees call us. (But I'm not bitter...
However, just a few hundred miles away, still well within Florida, on the Panhandle, where I live, it must be said the number of diversity can be measured on one hand.
We have one English person a couple of miles away, a few Indians and a few Yankees. (who are the most foreign of all) Other than that, we have very few other nationalities or cultures in our small town.
Some of y'all (foreigners especially) may not believe that such a place still exists in the most powerful nation on earth, but in our town we have a railroad track running North/South.... On the western (ocean) side of the tracks, live 'the majority' and on the east side of town live 'the minority'... and never the twain shall meet. It is improving, but ten years ago the racism in this part of the world was unmistakable and unforgivable.
Times are a'changing however, and the line between the groups is being erradicated - slowly. But for all that, we are the South - the ultimate South. We only got the 9-1-1 service three years back, and have only had a local ISP (other than AOL sixty miles away) since about last fall. For all that, if I could, I would live here for the rest of my life, flying PA-28s out of the local airfield. But I'm not black - or Jewish. To live here in that position I would imagine is pretty unbearable.
