I was born and raised in St Pete. The city USE to be very much divided. I'm black and I grew up on the south side. Crime was a regular to me...way higher than stats can show because more than half of the crime I personally experienced went unreported & was "handled" by the actual victim or victim's family. I actually did not even deal with white people on a daily basis until I started school at about 5 yrs old. The police and the civilian citizens do not have that great of a relationship between them. Meaning, if you called 911 you are lucky if anything gets done about the crime committed against you (no matter your race). And the people have no problem firing back at police. I thought I lived in a pretty decent place until I joined the military after high school and came back home. Now being home after getting out of the military, I'm no longer THAT use to the sirens, gunshots, and all of the crime infesting the city. There are better parts of the city to live in though. But, I think the beaches are nice but the cost of living is expensive. Unless you're an RN or a mortician it will be hard to find a decent job. It is more southern than most people think, but not too "red-neckish". And no matter where you go, or what neighborhood you live in within the state of Florida, you might end up a victim of theft or robbery.
