Schwarzenegger Apologizes for Remark
#1 Sep 9, 2006
I don't know the origins of the Puerto Ricans genetics nor would I comment on that but sooner or later our society can no longer ignore the fact that all the different races have their own nuances as a people, the way they think, the way they live, the way they do things, the way they behave and as is proven a change of venue does not change that even if they were born in that venue.
Yes you will find these same qualities in other races but not in such great proportion as is inherent in the race that is so common in.
We are not all the same, especially in our minds and emotions, the way we think, our perceptions of this world.
One identification to that is the structural architecture that is native to the races.
Architecture really is no different that art, it reflects the thought process of the creator and the many races are unique in their architecture.
Of course only up to the point that they were influenced by other races.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger should have better things to do. One coming to mind is getting California's ports back from the ownership of the Red Chinese Army.

It is true, especially Puerto Rico; it's mostly composed of mulattos. Thick African blood in that island. Cubans are more successful and have more European mix.

The initial tsunami of Cubans who fled/ran from Fidel were mostly White Cubans .
They got advantages and a free health care from the USA that Puerto Rican veterans who fought for USA could only hope to get.
Sad reflection on USA .
The old Exiles (COBARDES who ran from Fidel) wear that exile BS like it is Bronze star .
Some came with suitcases of money but regardless of that the exiles had their butts kissed by Uncle Sam.
Looking at the Cubans who came after the 80s . You can see that Cubans and PR are the same mix and match , Give or take a 1% here or there.
I can put Cubans and PR's side by side and you can't tell who is who unless it is one of the hipocrita , racista HP calle ocho Cubanos because once they open their Cuba libre mouths only venom pours out .
I do fault the PR's on one level . They MUST vote in every election . Many in Florida ignore state elections . Cubans do not ignore elections.
PR's must become a political voting power house .
Whether Dem or Rep any politico which isn't getting results . Has to be replaced .

You clearly have never been to Cuba. Neither have i, as of yet.....But, i have come into contact with lots of them and my godfather is Cuban and i have a Cuban sister-in-law and a beautiful niece who is half-Cuban who resides in Florida.
With the exception of many Marielitos....Most Cubans in Miami are of a lighter tone and or swarthy if not white altogether. They look like PR's. As our fellow poster Gio has stated...You can't tell the two apart.
And the majority of Cubans in Cuba ,in fact, are mixed.
And most of these people of color in Cuba have been trained as professionals by Castro's regime. Even ,in spite, of them not really financially profiting from their training and advanced degrees.
Yes...Cuban have a "grandeza" about them. Island or stateside... It is ingrained into them. Just the way they are. And that can be a nice thing. Depending on how it is presented.... But, it can also be socially harmful to others.
But, many White Miami Cubans are racist and don't hide it. You sound just like one. Are you Cuban?.

"The old Exiles (COBARDES who ran from Fidel) wear that exile BS like it is Bronze star"
That's all they talk about.. All day. Fidel, Fidel, Fidel.......And more Fidel.
And Fidel's family and cronies are still in power, as well.
Thankfully....They are all dying off...LOL!. That's horrible to say. But, you get my point, man.
2nd and third Cuban Americans are tending to vote as democrats. I believe they want to see their roots and visit the country of their forefathers which is a natural desire. Thy wan to end the embargo.
But, Mas Canosa's son and company want to end it too...But, they want to end it out of purely self-interests. In other words?. They smell opportunities to make money.
But, Castro's people will not let them just waltz back in there with a "business as usual attitude". It won't happen.
Those days are over. Cuban society has irrevocably changed. Castro has left his mark.

Ending the embargo will end the Castro regime faster than a falling anvil. Win win for all concerned!

I don't think so. We have all heard that before as well.
The Castro's regime has that covered. They are prepared for that as well. But, they do know that economic changes must come or else they will sink.
Hint: China is a model for them in some respects..... "Capitalism" with a tight fist.
The same elite that wanted them out all this time now realizes that now they have to kiss the regimes behind.
Sometimes, i wonder if the conspiracy theorists are right in that they have been in cahoots all this time. Just playing at opposite ends. That's all. Sounds crazy...But, the recent moves on the part of the Fanjul's, Mas Canosa's and company make no sense whatsoever. A real head scratch.
It's like they gave up on all their ideals all these years.

Time will tell ... even China is not as "tight" as many in the West seem to think. The amount of internal disturbances has skyrocketed in recent years ... look at the recent protests in Hong Kong and the series of rural village revolts in 2011 that were viciously crushed by security forces.
The Chinese economic system is a paper dragon, a Potemkin village. Mark my words, it will all come tumbling down by 2020.
