South Florida is struggling. CHOOSE YOUR Battles wisely; don’t be so angry, your making decisions that will affect people that care about Trayvon Martin, people who look like him, your confused who this battle is against. Properly challenge ALL laws that are injustices to people. Racial profiling is also geared towards Hispanics, black Hispanics, Jamaican’s, BLACK CUBANS, Haitians, these are the people employed in Florida, you want to take food from these families? UNFAIR. VOTING is where our energies must go. Register people to vote, all over the country, break records.
According to the 2005 census, the racial distributions are as follows; 60.1% White, 17% African-American, 2.1% Asian American, 1.4% others (American Indians), and the remaining 18% are Hispanics or Latino (of any ethnicity or national origin). Florida has one of the largest African-American populations in the country, but ranks the second highest Latino population in the East coast outside of New York state and Florida’s Asian-American population has grown in high rates in the 1990s, the majority being ethnic Chinese, Filipinos and Vietnamese settled in the Gulf Coast. The state has a few federally recognized American Indian tribes, like the Seminoles in the southeastern part of the state.
Florida’s Hispanic population includes large communities of Cuban Americans in Miami (mainly from refugees fleeing the Castro regime) and Tampa, Puerto Ricans in Tampa and Orlando, and Central American and Mexican migrant workers in inland West-Central and South Florida, like the Lake Okeechobee area. The Hispanic community continues to grow more affluent and mobile: between the years of 2000 and 2004, Lee County in Southwest Florida, which is largely suburban in character, had the fastest Hispanic population growth rate of any county in the United States.
Make the battle about “JUSTICE” for people, which makes the world a better place.
