I wasnt speaking about the mods. If I'm talking about something that happened to me in a parking lot or on the roads and mention who it was, or a description, it's a racist comment. Even if someone asks, if I answer, it's usually deleted. Or if we have a few robberies or stoen vehicles in our area, if I were to post the article about it, if the suspect is anything other than white, it gets deleted.

Well I hope you pushed her back. I'm normally a very polite person, I hold doors open, and I usually allow others with only a couple of items to go ahead of me, but when someone deliberately tries to walk over me I can get ugly really quick. People with no manners have to be put in their place sometimes.

I agree.. I also rarely if ever hear spanish in Pasco and Hernando as well as most of Polk or Lake Counties. In much of Volusia county you rarely hear spanish outside of Deltona. In Brevard county the only place I hear a decent amount of spanish is in Palm Bay.The rest of the Orlando area has much more spanish speaking over the past decade wth the highest concentration in Poinciana and urban Osceola county though not much when you get into the northern part of Orlando metro. I've been traveling and doing business in these areas for upwards of 20 years now. My gut feeling tells me to expect a more interesting mix from diverse areas of this country and world with a greater proportion from places like Canada, Brazil, the European Union and China as well as northerners and midwesterners to be moving to central FL over the coming decades as SoFla continues on it's course of the past three decades and what is left of the old south slowly disappears in the central part of the state as well.. From what I see going on in and around downtown Orlando through the heart of Winter Park it won't end up being anything like Miami. Hope this helps the OP.

And that's an unfortunate thing, but I think you're right. FL isnt the south anymore, for the most part at least. Gotta head north!

It's already disgusting to try and order food in Tampa and the order taker can't understand you in English. So yes. Central FL is just a matter of time before anything south of I-4 in my opinion will be a mixed bag of who knows what. If I need to be bilingual to get the job why is that not a requirement with everyone else who doesn't speak English? Central FL is not the FL I grew up in now.

I know what you mean Nomadicus, it sucks. We're headed to NC. Rather than pretend FL is what it used to be, or rather than us changing with the times, we'll just head to NC.

Agreed... it's just a matter of time before ALL of Florida becomes South Florida. It's moving on up like The Jefferson's. No stopping it! Everything is now being translated into Spanish... Enter/Exit Signs, Stop Signs, Maps, etc. It's disgusting. I was born and raised in Orlando... the Orlando today is much different than the Orlando I remember, and it's sad. Really sad.

So to answer the question... yes, I believe Central Florida will in time mimic South Florida.

Where in Tampa are all of these Spanish-speaking restaurant employees? I eat all over Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties and can count on one hand the times I've had to breakdown my order into simple terms.
