Oh yea, some counties already are. Once enough large counties does, all the small counties that are mainly white will be unable to keep up with the large counties becoming minority-majority (ie. Orange County, Dade. Probably Broward and PBC by now too. Once Pinellas, Hillsborough and Duval become minority-majority, it'll be soooo many people within those counties that, without a doubt, FL will become minrity-majority. Guessing by 2050.

Do u think the fact that not only Florida, but the entire country will be a minority majority will scare most white people?

How moderate of Florida, wow. lol jk

As for Miami...
I dont really think the demographics are actually changing, but the population is growing.. So Miami still remains Hispanic in culture and feel through and through.
The population is growing, traffic is increasing, construction coontinues, so more people are moving here... of course the super rich from south America and... and immigrants from the caribbean... and northeasterners looking to escape the cold winters.... Those demographics aren't changing anytime soon.

I imagine the rest of Florida is going to way that Miami already is.
58% of ppl voted for medical marijuana, more than governor's popular vote in the last six elections.

Get off your high horse. Not even a decade ago, cali passed proposition 8 against gay marriage and there are still whack jobs over there that bring cases like this

As long as FL doesn't adopt failed fiscally liberal budgets like Chicago, Detroit, cali, N.Y., nj etc, we will be in good shape as a fiscally conservative/socially moderate to liberal place

Kep in mind there is a significant difference between the "Hispanic" population in FL and that of say CA or AZ. Cubans and Puerto Ricans are from a bit different "class' if you will. Nothing to do with good or bad, rather culture.

I know what you're implying, not always true.

Scare most? Probably not outside of the extreme right-wing whack jobs. I mean what is to be scared of exactly?
