wow so i was definitely called a ****** as i walked by a couple having dinner outside downtown last night, i was having such a good time bartending for everybody it was such a great atmosphere and some ******* for some reason had a problem with me just for walking by. one thing, it takes a lot of energy to just let it go and not respond to something like that and also you ever wonder why some minority people are so angry? its because stupid **** like this happens all the time. so ****in pathetic. and i dont want to hear that reverse racism crap, im a normal guy in a normal part of town who has had a more than normal life and i have to put up with crap like that. im not the only one im sure.

Brevard County sounds pretty nice, honestly.. I can't wait to escape the rat race, traffic, and smog..
Not like in Florida!! I never heard the 'N' word spoken so shamelessly out loud before in supposedly polite company. Whether it was at neighborhood gatherings or out to dinner with another couple, I've heard this racial slur roll off peoples' tongues as if nothing. Florida is horrendously racist.

I've been here for 35yrs., and I think it really makes a difference which town your in,each neighborhood seems to have it's own thing going on.

I am dealing with reality lol I have dealt with it in such a way that I am currently shopping for a new car hmm those audi s5 are looking pretty nice..

I'm not the one with the problem. There are dumb asses of every race, there are VERY stupid ghetto black people who are just destructive toward anyone if they feel like it, even to me before I've been called names, but when you have a white person make a racist comment toward you, especially when they look like they can be your teacher, employer, or someone with an education, thats disturbing.

Just because you were called cracker doesn't mean all minority people you come across should get less treatment or be given bad service. Its not fair to me when I grew up with all different types of people including white, went to school with them, work for and with them.

I'm not the one with the problem, its the people like you who dont see the difference.

I never called you a name, and you must not know a "real" cracker
Source Wiki: Florida cracker
Florida cracker - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ETA: BTW I'm not racist, and if you feel discriminated by other races even your own, maybe it's time to make a move.

this is not a place to grow up nor raise a family and its troublesome to hear anyone would think that. they must have grown up here and not know any about the outside world and conditions. just because property may be relatively cheap, you are sacrificing keeping pace with the world, your livelihood, and a diverse/open-minded community because melbourne/palm bay is a complete dump!

please DONT BE FOOLED. unless you want to turn into a drunken, non-aspiritious, beach bum, low life, non-existent, souless creature thats fine. but please consider your kids growing up in one of the most boring, substance-abusing, close-minded environments known to this nation.
Ah...yea...nothing bout your title in this post.....but every place is WHAT YOU MAKE IT......I lived there for years ...althought I do claim to be a beach bum and kids to ...we still live in NJ on the beach.....but we are not drug addicts or had any of the problems you list here. Sounds like you are having an off day or live somewhere off beat maybe...it might be the people you hang with ???
