Response to freshwest (Original post)

6. I live in the Florida Keys.

I understand why some of the Cuban people want to keep hating. No, don't tell me I don't, because I am first generation from Latvia, and my family suffered under communism. My grandparents lost their home, their son. I was born in a DP camp in Germany because the communists threw my family out of the country and took our homes and property. I KNOW!!!

But times come when you need to try another way.

If you think life was hell for my family (and it was) attempting to live on shit wages to survive, without the language, imagine what it would be for people of darker skin.
