We are looking to the Destin Fl area we have heard mixed reviews about the area we have a daughter that we adopted who bi racial and I am worried about prejudices against her. We currently live in WA state which is a very liberal state. Any advice would be great

Rude Much?

As you can see their are idiots around here, but then again they would pop up anywhere.

I would say visit first and see for yourself, I am bi-racial and have never had much of a problem.

If that is true there are many Americans with no love in their hearts. I was station at Eglin AFB; have you ever heard of the Crestveiw mob? They call themselves the good old boys, but they are Confederate Talibans, thats can make someone a person who they are not(they can make the nicest person become a hater against their kind). You must see for yourself, its a reason they call North West Flordia Lower Alabama!

Reverse racism. It's out there.

Although there is racism everywhere, I have not noticed that this area is more, or less racist than any other place I have lived. This is my home. I grew up here. When I attended Destin Elementary is was the early 70's and yes, racism existed and there were no blacks in Destin. It has changed. Just check out the other thread of someone complaining about too many blacks visiting here. One of my closest friend, who lives around the corner, is black. Yes, reverse racism exists but neither has to. Love and be friendly with whomever you want. Life is a lot more pleasant that way.

Beware of moving to Destin. The spring breakers have been kicked out of PCB and have plans to inhabit Destin in 2016.

That plan is being squelched as I type this. The Spring breakers will not have free reign over Destin. It's already being discussed with the city council.

Spring Breakers have been coming to Destin since the early '80s. It's nothing new here at all. The difference is they won't have free reign over the beaches to do whatever they want. The realtors will not rent to kids who they know will probably distroy the place. They know what goes on and if the OWNER of the places says nobody under 25 can rent the place then they have to abide. Now, that being said, there are some stupid parents who will rent places for their kids, but stupidity exists, just like the stupidity of racism does and we have to deal with it as it comes our way.
