Illegal indians in Miami need to get deported....they do nothing but steal from others and spread the piojos all over. Besides they hate cuban american, because they have all the benefits as Citizens in USA. These illegals can only raise their voices in Topic, because they are afraid to be deported in the streets of Miami.

Castro may very well be dead. He has not made a public appearance in about two years. Last we heard he heard he was extremely sick and had to transfer power over to his brother. Of course Raul and those in charge wouldn't the truth to get out, all chaos will break out. Also many in Washington who may actually know, wouldn't wan't word to get out either. There would be a massive exodus of Cubans to US shores.

So does Nancy Morejon disagree with Cornel West and other scholars for their letter criticizing the infringement of civil liberties and the situation of Blacks in Cuba?

From what I've read the Cuban Revolution did take a strong position against racism in Cuba, but that didn't make it go away.
Actually, there's more racism in Latin America as a whole than is generally recognized.

But, but, but,Assata Shakur says Cuba is a paradise for Negroes!

"Assata Shakur has been living in Cuba since 1986, after escaping from prison where she was serving a life sentence imposed in a highly disputed trial. Assata was a Black Panther then a Black Liberation Army (BLA) leader in the early '70s, so she was a target of the FBI's COINTELPRO operation. Assata was captured in a shoot-out resulting from resistance to yet another "driving while black" police action in 1973 on the New Jersey State Turnpike. This time a State Trooper was killed. Zayd Shakur, traveling in the car with Assata, was also killed. "

I am tired of the lies. I have to let my skeletons out of the closet. You see in Mexico I have nothing, I like to drink so I dont go to work. My wife left me because I could not please her in the bedroom so she ran off with a successful Cuban. I think that not having to work hard and not having to think for myself is the perfect life. You see when I do have to think for myself I just stay sitting on floor sucking my thumb. I tried to cross the river to go into the US but I was to fat and lazy to run fast enough. I am jealous that Cubans just get to stay in the US, while us wetbacks get thrown back because we do not know how to choose a good leader.
I think Castro is my hero if he was in front of me I would pleasure him, maybe I can make him happy, I heard it will make Raul Castro happy.
My freind Canuck keeps sending me naked pictures of himself, but I told him to stop because my mother will find the pictures (even though I am 48 I still live with her).
I know communism has never worked, history has proved it but I still believe it will work one day( I think I just saw a pig fly over me?) Anyways, I want it to work so people who are smarter than me cannot do better than me.

I doubt racism in Cuba is worse than in Miami which is controlled by what many call the Miami Cuban junta.

They say its a fascist White Cuban mentality . Gosh that sounds real scarey.
You know I am staying in a hotel in Doral while I visit Miami and I do see it as have noticed MANY non white working poor Hispanics,etc waiting forever like they are animals for horrible bus service in DORAL.
I was told by a non Cuban cop that if they were White Cuban the White Cuban Mayor might care.

"At the peak of the debate, Max Lesnik, a Cuban journalist who lives in Miami and has a good memory, recalled when the city's loudmouths and their mayor, Alex Penelas, in 1990 branded Nelson Mandela as “persona non grata,” and prevented that living symbol of the struggle against apartheid and racism from accepting an invitation from the city's Afro-American community."

"The question for someone who arrives in Florida from any other part of the world – for example, Haiti, Mexico, the Dominican Republic or Central America – and for the successive generations of Cubans who have emigrated and continue to do so is if they have been excluded from some opportunities as a consequence of their origin, language or appearance."

"The City of Miami abolitionist movement was created because Miami is plagued with a history of corruption which has led to the reality of financial crisis.**** Its government, a Cuban-majority commission, was unwilling to present a fair redistricting plan to voters in the election; instead, approving a plan drawn by then just-indicted Commissioner Humberto Hernandez, a plan that shuts out half of the city’s Black population**** in favor of a non-representative, Cuban super-majority."

http://www.popularsovranty.org/mdc.shtml

Horrible isn't it and this is Miami under the White Cuban political junta.


"The Cuban community that doesn’t care about corruption when it casts its vote was critically portrayed by most leading city columnists and others, Cuban and otherwise. Robert Steinback, a Black Miami Herald columnist, said the Cuban community is gullible. Liz Balmaseda calls it “a knee-jerk majority” that would elect a hamster wearing a Cuba Libre T-shirt, and,“They only cared that he was Cuban.”

# I do disagree that Miami Cubans will elect only Cubans because if the person is a BLACK cuban they will NOT. in fact ONLY white Cubans need apply and look at Miamis political history NOT ONE Black Cuban.

Rednecks seem to be more open minded .Than again for most part other than a language difference both groups so so similiar.

lol oh yes Marco Rubio is a White Miami Cuban right wing extremist which is why he is such a Miami darling.

White, right wing fanatic and HYPOCRITE no wonder so many love him in the Miami Cuban community. He will certainly get the Miami Cuban vote .

"Marco, plainly stating his failure to report $34,000 in expenses from two committees he started, which raised a combined $600,000, but spent $51,000 paying credit cards and tens of thousands on “salaries” for Rubio and his family members, including his ex-cheerleader wife "
"Marco Rubio is quickly emerging as a freewheeling big spender of special interest cash even as the U.S. Senate candidate sells himself as a fiscal hawk. The latest disclosure: As the young state lawmaker lined up support in 2003 and 2004 to become Florida House speaker, he blew through more than $600,000 stashed in a pair of political committees and never detailed how at least 20 percent of the money was spent. The expenses the Miami Republican did disclose suggest the money frequently went to subsidize his lifestyle or to employ relatives — not to support other House candidates as his donors would have expected."

Castro the communist is crap like Batista the fascist before him was crap and like most if not all of Miamis Cuban politicos are crap.

It simply seems some people have no business in politics and perhaps incapable of a real gvm't .

But HEY thank God for the federal gvm't stepping in and saving our butts here in Miami this way most of us can continue being politically self defeating and ethnic voting .

"In April, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Alvarez said he objected to HUD's ultimatum to voluntarily accept a federal administrator to oversee the county's housing agency and was willing to go to court to prevent it."

"For U.S. HUD to come in and to take over would be counterproductive," Alvarez said.

In an investigation first uncovered by The Miami Herald, the MDHA in one instance paid nearly $1 million for 24 town homes, but nothing was ever built and the developer never returned the money."

"One of the key figures in Miami-Dade's public housing scandal was charged with theft and fraud Friday."

"Developer Raul Masvidal turned himself into the state attorney's office Friday."

"Masdival had nothing to say as he was led into the county jail in handcuffs, Local 10 reported."

"Prosecutors said Masvidal concocted a scheme to have Miami-Dade's Housing Agency pay nearly $300,000 for two pieces of sculpture. One was a sculpture of a giant slice of watermelon entitled Mars, worth $150,000."

Como me gusta watermelon y como un Miami ciego idiota no me importa nada de esto .

Que roben todo lo que quieren robar .CUBA LIBRE.
