Review of St. Petersburg, Florida

Dont invest or waste your time in S St Petersburg
Star Rating - 11/30/2020
A very liberal city that is rampant with reverse racism in South St Petersburg in the up and coming areas which is NOT tolerant of whites, gays and others. The South St Petersburg neighborhoods (south of central ave) are full of hate by elderly racist "christian" women who cannot mind their business and think they run all of south St Pete. What is even more bizarre, is folks like I have described enjoy bearing false witness to their new neighbors, spread rumors and lies to make anyone not like themselves to feel unwelcome. Harassment from Codes (false complaints) police knocking for "welfare checks" although on vacation (sppd was provided notice we would be away) is a daily ritual.

If you are gay, white or of mixed race you will not be welcome in South St Petersburg in the Highland Oaks neighborhood as the 60+ year old bigots will do whatever is needed to make you so miserable you will do just about anything to get some peace of mind.

I have lived many places. The City of St Petersburg, FL thrives on reverse racism in their under served communities which enables the old elderly bullies to make life awful.

Now, if you live NORTH of Central Ave or the Old NE. Things are much different.
