What role has racial diversity had in shaping the Florida experience
Miami plays a major role in the racial diversity in Florida. With the Hispanic population in Miami-Dade, it is one of the most diverse counties in the state. Orange county is in the top 5 as the most diverse. The most diverse county is Broward county and it is projected to be the most divers county in the Nation in just a few short years. Though not all of Florida is as racially diverse, it leads the country in its statistics. One reason could be for the tourist industry. Between Disney, Busch Gardens and the numerous beaches, so many cultures from all over the world come together that it is difficult to have segregation. That is something very unique about Florida; its ability to maintain a semblance of southern culture but the ability to include all races.
