Foreign exchanged student: Should I worry?

I'm moving to Miami, Florida in about 2 weeks time. My dad got this new job offer and my family's moving. Thing is, Ima go to school this year, starting off with the second semester. And I'm really nervous. Last time I've been to the states was like 10 years ago. I'm Arabic, and a Muslim. Should I be worried about any kind of racism there? I have this feeling I'm going to be their new shiny toy. I have a couple of friends there, but I'm pretty sure they won't be attending my school, which I think will be Everglades High. What's it like there? I'm expecting to find Latinos, and a whole lot of other people from different countries.

Uh, well you'll be fine, unless you wear a burqa or something. In that case, you can expect a lot of terrorist jokes and comments. And no, you won't be their shiny toy, if anything you'll be avoided. I am not even being mean, just honest. Hope you have fun.
