According to the City-Data stats, here in the breakdown for St. Augustine:

Races in St. Augustine:
White Non-Hispanic (79.3%)
Black (15.1%)
Hispanic (3.1%)
Two or more races (1.6%)
American Indian (1.1%)
Other race (0.9%)


Here's the link to the page:

//www.city-data.com/city/St.-Au...e-Florida.html


The most diverse area I've lived in was the Intracoastal West area of Jacksonville. Duval county, in general, is going to be more diverse than St. John's county and Clay county is going to be the least diverse. That's just a county-to-county comparison, of course. Compared to other part of the US, Northeast Florida would not considered "diverse".

Default Can't we all just get along? (I know a bit cheesy and cliche)

Unfortunately in some areas it still seems to go that way. Personally I wish it would end but that's too much to ask for I guess.

In St. Augustine people of any race can live anywhere they choose as long as they have the means. When races are divided by socio-economic factors you can't call that segregation. Riveree is right, Northeast Florida cannot be considered diverse. If you are looking for diversity you have to go where there is a greater representation of different races like maybe south Florida.

My wife and I live in Atlanta and suggest you move here. It is like the united nations and your complaint of too many white people (racist?) is not a problem here.

My wife and I will be moving to St. Augustine for 3 important reasons and one of them is to live in a community that better provides an environment for our ethnic and cultural background - and that is european american.

Atlanta is very "multi-cultural" but if you go into many different neighborhoods, each of these neighborhoods is rarely multicultural. There are black hoods, white hoods, mexican hoods, indian hoods, latino hoods, korean hoods, and on and on. It's normal and that's why people live this way.

We can't wait to live and raise a family in a more european-american community. Sounds like you're prejudiced, so, go somewhere else. Most of the country is going this way.

I'll give you a great deal on my house for sale in Atlanta!

Sounds like you are very unhappy! You better prepare yourself because this country is becoming more and more multiracial and soon there will be no more places for you to run. Don't forget the europeans emigrated here. They are not the original settlers in this country. Also for your info I am White but always raised my family in diverse settings because that is the real world!! I don't think you will be very happy in St. Augustine. St. Augustine has a reputation of being a very warm and friendly city not one full of HATRED!!!!

Two things:

North FL is not diverse at all. You should check out Orlando or S FL. But, and this is second, I see this changing and creeping up from S FL up the coast. So eventually, I could see even north FL being diverse.
