The D will RushYa, Like Moscow
Your ignorance towards Broward and Palm Beach put a dark lining on your feelings for Miami-Dade. Miami has been poor well before it was overrun by Cubans and other Hispanics. The black community was always the heart of Miami was in regards to being "THE SOUTH" and now poor "English" speaking adults who grew up in poverty can't even get a minimum wage job because they can't speak a language they have no business having to learn to keep a roof over their heads? What is so glorious about that ****? That **** is a disgrace. When people talk about "the most beautiful people being in Miami" they sure aren't talking about those 400K that live in the inner city. The people "quoted" saying that have only been across the bridge to get to/from the airport. They sure weren't with me in Liberty City at the Martin Luther King Parade every year.

Welcome to the real world and welcome to urban life in major cities. Doesn't mean as a English speaking man I have to be looked down upon because I don't speak a language that isn't even native to my country. If that is what makes Miami this Shang Ri La to you, you can have it. Throw in the corrupt politics and nepitism that runs rapid down there and I just don't see how anybody can call that place special.
Sure there is culture. I love the women in Miami, mainly because of the diversity, I love the many different kinds of food that are available. I love the weather and I love the women (yea I said it twice) . . . but my reason for being here is different from yours . . . I'm here because 90% of my family lives in Dade/Broward counties and I'm a family person . . . my wife and I also have degrees in business management and travel/hospitality and Fort Lauderdale is home to the 2 largest cruise ships in the world and an expanding airport along with approvals for big table gambling for downtown Fort Lauderdale and the largest Outlet Mall in the world . . . and I want to be in the middle of what is going to be a big scene in the upcomming years.
I have family in Colorado that absolutely love it there, I got family in Atlanta that loves it there and in North Carolina as well . . . nobody misses this place. All they miss is the warm winters and family.
