Very well said. I bought two apartments in SoBe in the 80s, the area was not very good with the Mariel immigrants, crime and drugs. It cost me 25k each. Spent about 25k fixing them up. Area boomed and sold them for over 300k each.
We don't know what's going to happen in the future and if you are young and want to make some money looking at areas that could move up in the future could be a ticket to good money. I sure did.

"the Uhuru thieves and thugs". I see the racists are alive and well on this forum. Very sad. These people are beyond sick. But that's just one of the posts here that's racist. What a bottom of the barrel mindset here. I hope this racist rant thread is closed, but you "people" will just post elsewhere, right? Maybe David Duke has a website you can go to.

I have no idea what happened in this particular instance, but anyone w/ any sense at all can see that the police are not held to any standards at all on violence, and it's just one cover up after another. If they do have an investigation, it's the police investigating the police. Gee, I wonder how that will work out? All over this country the police are murdering black men, many of them unarmed. It's not here in St Pete, it's everywhere.

Ok but what are the possibilities of this? all those hot zones are within blocks of the ghetto after all. If crap gets real, there wont be no real divider like you think there is now.. while it may not happen.. I'd like to know what the chances are in your opinion.

You're a racist too you just don't know it. Its disgraceful you have to always bring up the KKK or David Duke as if everyone who mentions their concerns is a terrorist of some sort. If you act like a thug, you are one. That's the bottom line. And I am guessing your last name is Marino.. just because Italians once had a struggle in this country doesn't automatically mean its in their best interest to unite with blacks especially when we're exposed to them literally and see how they really are. I once had another Italian guy literally throw me under the bus also when I mentioned concerns about the school I transferred to being safe and how I see certain problems with certain demographics.. He instead got more mad at me than the other blacks did even. I don't know your story but it seems like you'd vote for Bernie over Trump or you're one of those types.

Well some of us don't even have 25k to make money off unless you wanna be flat broke for awhile. I need what I have for the short run and cant make money off real estate. I call this privilege or you had an inheritance so it was easy for you to do. Many of us out there cannot.

WTF....maybe he just worked hard and saved his money! How about that. The Good Old Fashioned way! Additionally if you think that a person who has saved 25,000 is privileged or a Trust Fund Baby you need to realize that in 2016 25,000 is not a very large amount of money.

Hate to disappoint you my friend I worked my butt off when I was young, had two jobs and saved that money that then I used to invest in those apts. nothing was given to me since my parents were immigrants to this country and had to start from scratch.

This is who you are standing with, shoulder to shoulder agreeing with, if you vote for Trump, all the fiscally conservative, common sense economic policies in the world won't get you past these people, that's why the GOP will never take another general election.
