The description here is really stupid. I mean, really stupid; "black in a white area". No, it's not a white area by any stretch of the imagination. Firstly, it`s in Miami Dade county, which is only about 10-15% non-hispanic white. So 85% of the people are NOT white in the whole county. Miami Gardens specifically is only 2% white, and 75% black.
Soâ€¦when did having 2% white people in a neighborhood make it a "white area"? How can the 2% white people in Miami gardens oppress the 75% of Black people, logistically speaking?
I was in Miami-Dade earlier this weekend, and there are really no white people that actually live there. So they must be doing a good job oppressing in absentia. So what gives about the description? Something you`re not telling us?

Fair enough, Gerry. You are probably right. I don't know, as a white Hispanic person I can fit in anywhere from La Jolla to Otay Ranch.
I base my comments on a blond haired friend who was an assistant basketball coach at Cal State San Marcos. When he went into black neighborhoods, there was not a cop in sight, but the gang members demanded to know "who he with?" (Apparently that`s a gang thing?) When he explained that he was with CSUSM, and showed them a few moves (sometimes playing a bit; he was a great player) they escorted him to the recruit`s home and back, for his protection.

Smagboy, oh this is definitely a Cha-Ching moment. It's harassment obviously and I hope he gets a lot of money. But I was commenting one the "white privilege" comment that was made.
