I've met plenty of Cubans who were every bit as white as I am and were very, very well educated so I doubt that is the reason.

You either live in Miami or you don't. In your case you don't even live in Miami-Dade, but Broward. I wouldn't be surprised to learn Mr. Crossroads is also somewhere in Broward or god knows where.

So as a resident I say bring on these Cubans, they make this place more interesting. God Forbid Miami loses its latin Vibe and becomes Ft. Lauderdale.

At the turn of the 20th Century, when Italians, Irish, German etc all immigrated to this country in masses. It's well documented that they were not very liked at the time. Today the Irish, Italians and Germans descendants have integrated into the American culture. The same will happen with the Cubans. I don't understand why people are so worried.

EXACTLY! I thought this was common knowledge i.e. the "melting pot" of the US. Here is a little blurb from the Library of Congress website:

Between 1900 and 1915, more than 15 million immigrants arrived in the United States. That was about equal to the number of immigrants who had arrived in the previous 40 years combined. In 1910, three-fourths of New York City's population were either immigrants or first generation Americans (i.e. the sons and daughters of immigrants).

Unlike earlier immigrants, the majority of the newcomers after 1900 came from non-English speaking European countries. The principal source of immigrants was now southern and eastern Europe, especially Italy, Poland, and Russia, countries quite different in culture and language from the United States.


Like doggiebus said, the non-English speaking European immigrants 100 years ago morphed into the majority of "caucasions" today. If you live (and breed) in South Florida, there's a good chance your great, great grandchildren (or sooner) will be part Cuban. It's the American way!

Small town near Sebring to Doral in one hour? What town is that?

All your questions indicate all of you have zero geography skills! I suppose some of us have a high school diploma or very few of us? Oh wait, I am in the Miami forum!
