I'm a mixed guy (3/4 black 1/4 white) and I am looking into colleges in florida, hopefully I get into UCF or Florida State. I'm afraid of the racism i'll receive there because here in Ohio we don't receive that much racism. Actually, no one has ever been racist to me. How much racism will I receive in Florida?

The south is far less racist than the media makes it out to be. I lived in the NE , west coast and I have to say they are more racist than the south. FLA is way cool, warm all year and people have that southern hospitality. You most likely won't recieve racism unless you take every little thing as a racist act.2

I live in Florida and will be attending USF in the Spring. (I got accepted to UCF as well, but chose USF over UCF since Tampa Bay > Orlando).
Florida is highly diverse so you wouldn't have to worry too much about racism. In all honesty I'll be more concern about racism up North then down South. There's a reason why Blacks are moving out of Northern/Western states at an alarming rate and are moving back to the South.
The ONLY thing you need to concern yourself about is how you plan on adapting to his humidity. The humidity down here in Florida is unforgivable and its the #1 gripe that ALL Floridians have about the state.
