While island Puerto Ricans have been battling against the colonial power in Congress; trying to improve life in the islands by demanding our fair share of power as US citizens by taking our future and decision making into our own hands; stateside Ricans' passively accept being divided into clusters (in order to keep them as a powerless, oppressed minority).
These divisions (which happens in every state with large numbers of stateside "Ricans") have no other objective than to perpetuate them into a social, political and economical prostration while the majority imposes its decisions.

I do not agree with that but do think that PR's in USA , MUST WAKE UP and vote in massive numbers , in every election, local, state and federal.

At 18 yrs old, they must vote and I do not see that at all as far as state elections go esp in Florida.

PR have political muscle in numbers alone but they do not flex it.

Look at the judeos, You will not find a single judeo who ignores ANY election, regardless of how "small".
Cubanos are somewhat the same , the newer arrivals are not.

I grew up with many judeos in Bayside, NY and the day they turn 18 till they day they die, they vote in every election there is.

If there is an "election" on what flower display the park has and there is two feet of snow, they march through the snow and vote.

I do agree with you . The PR vote in Florida is now enough to match the Miami Cuban vote but in state elections most under 50 yrs old are "no show" and that is why people like Marco Rubio get elected.

I have no idea how we can get things to change. I have many PR friends who are political machines and they have not been able to get that vote moving like they want to.

The irony is that Cubans as political as we are, have no country (you know what I mean) and the Miami junta which is a political machine ,have spent 54 yrs walking around calle ocho in aimless circles ,screaming "Cuba libre" while led by self serving con artist , corrupt politicos.

You have made an important point.
US Cubans have always tried distancing themselves from other Hispanic economic immigrants, in that they are "political immigrants" (who happen to be in the US).
They do not view themselves as another oppressed minority group living and suffering prejudice and discrimination in the racist deep South (which is what Tallahasee represents).
Muchos de los "miami" cubanos are a bunch of racist , "Los cubanos somos blancos who speak Spanish y mejor que todos los otros"
A-holes to begin with.

They deserve what they get.

We have gotten FREE gvmt perks that no other group can fathom.

My uncle is a licensed electrician. He fled Castro before I was born, my parents stayed in Cuba till roughly 30 yrs ago , give or take.

My uncle was sent to trade school to become a electrician for FREE courtesy of USA tax payer, he became a electrician and doing well.

To hear him speak now you would think he did it all himself and other hispanics can go to hell if they even complain about poor bus service.

Naci en cuba pero nunca vi a los miami cubanos como oppressed porque la verdad es que la MAYORIA son los oppressors y como una persona que sabe la politica me imagino que hace tiempo que sabes eso.

Los hij@ de [email protected] ,mas hipocritas del mundo se encuentran aqui mismo en el mundo de los miami cubanos.

La mayoria de los cubanos aqui, la gente que llamo "miami" cubanos are part of the Tallahasee mentality.

Look at Marco Rubio, his parents fled economic hadships under Batista , they did NOT flee Castro.
He had to finally admit the truth ONLY AFTER being caught in his calle ocho "exile" lie.

Rubio and his miami junta want to deport any NON Cuban who has done the same and even want to deport Venezuelans who have actually fled Chavez, Talk about puro hypocrites.

Como decin muchos de los cubanos que conosco en ny "La miami junta can go #### themselves".

You just tell it like it is.

No cutting around the bush!

I respect your postings.

Miami was for many years a microcosm of the social class strata in Cuba's Pre-Casto days.

My godfather is Cuban and he makes light jokes of the Miami Cubans... He say "los Cubanos y todo su grandeza"...LOL!
