I live in central Florida ( home of Casey Anthony and George piggy Zimmerman) honestly everyone is going about their day like usual here. It seems like we are always in the national news for something. Ah well

be blk and shoot a warning shot at your husband trying to beat your ass.. i bet you wont get 20 yrs here. 

or defend yourself after someone follows and attacks you.. 

shiet, you can be black and get away with murdering your white spouse here. 

dont disrespect us like that. we are nothing like your disgusting, pitiful state. 
shiet, CA had the most beneficial protests out of the majority of the country.. everyone else was scared to bust a grape and on the peaceful ish. 


I have no problem with anyone bashing Florida, but California, with their extensive history of racial profiling, isn't the state I'd be big upping.

A joke. Black people will never be able to mobilize again in an effective manner. Here I am trying to find lists of every possible company based in Florida that would benefit from my money and yall are talking about Disney Land...in the thread talking about boycotting that pitiful ass state. Ok.

cali does have it's own set of problems but there's no place like home and in hindsight, san francisco is great city!  very liberal, very vocal about upholding civil rights, and people just need to get the word and they're ready to lobby and fight for what's right.  there are absolutely racist there but man, they're leaps ahead of a lot of this country.  i booked a flight back home tonight.  i need to be around something familiar.

*sighs*  I understand that it will be hard and require some sacrifice...but would this sacrifice not be worth it?  We can't go out of our way for ourselves?  We can't put in just a little effort for ourselves?

Like I said...I understand that there are instances where u might have to walk into white owned establishment.  If it must be white owned then let it only be the SuperMarket or a pharmacy and not some unnecessary store. I want ya'll to pretend it's the 1950's and those stores say "No Nig.gers Allowed" on their windows.
This.

Would it be best to stay away from local mom & pop yt establishments since more money goes back into the community if you spend in non-chain places?

what state doesnt have racial profiling....? 

i know there are bad cases like oscar.. but thats every state.. they dont even try to hide it in FL... 
I dont think ive ever experienced any blatant racism and ive been here for over 20 years. 


FL is more similar to them other southern states....  
dont compare CA and FL.. theyre not even remotely alike.. if they were ppl in SF, OAK, LA, SAC, and SD wouldnt be doing what theyre doing right now..
theyre used to/conditioned to that shat in FL.. thats everyday for them.

Kind of hard to boycott certain types of businesses in FL when I live here.
