Hey,
So I should be ocming to Miami soon (still looking at some similar alternatives around the US) from Europe.
I don't have anything against blacks or such (hell I've got a lot of black friends), I just don't want to feel "minority".

Most living here are black/cuban and stuff right? But the tourists make it a lot more diverse.... as they are throughout the whole year (summer/winter).

I just don't want to feel like I came to a South American country (although people say it is)

It is hard to find anyone educated in general. Many times even people with degrees can be low and rough around the edges.

It's all about who you hang out with. Yes Miami has less educated people than say NYV or DC. At the same time the vast majority of people I know have college degrees, and a good percentage. Around 40% or so have graduate degrees or are in grad school.

As to the OP question. First there are not many "Spanish" people. You are from Europe you should know Spanish means from Spain. Miami is heavily Hispanic with fairly large communities from every single Latin American country. The largest community is the Cubans. After that the largest community is likely Haitians. A decent percentage of the Black population are of Caribbean decent. Then there are American blacks and just white Americans and Europeans. Keep in mind the majority of Hispanics are also white of European decent.

Anyway, not sure why this is an issue. It's not just three groups living in Miami. Miami is one of the most diverse cities in the U.S.

First of all, that should be fewer educated people, not less educated people. I mean, as long as we're discussing education....

Secondly, why is anyone bothering to respond to an obvious troll post such as the one below:

Are there a lot of Europeans (non-tourists!)? FIU for exmaple, not sure if it's all Cuban/Hispanic, or a lot of Europeans too...

Miami does feel like you are in South America in some ways because people from many South American and Caribbean countries make up the majority of this city. Miami is 64.3% hispanic, 19.2% black, 16.3% white. Tourist season in Miami runs from January - May, the rest of the year we have less and less tourists. And typically the tourists just stick to Miami Beach.

South American nations are great, so why would you not like to feel like you just came from one?
