49. Why don't

 

we distinguish the difference in which Cubans or Venezuelans, because there is a group of Cubans that perpetuates this right wing propaganda on all the Democratic party. They associated themselves with white supremacists and State's Rights advocates in this country too, which as an African American, I find offensive, and I'm putting it bluntly.

They should not associate the Cuban Revolution led by Fidel Castro with the History of the United States. This is a country that came from slavery to what we have today. The Federal Government has always been crucial in U.S. History ever since the American Civil War. Some of the greatest U.S. presidents in our hIstory would have been associated with communism, according to many cuban immigrants that fled Cuba for asylum in this country. I'm not trying to be mean, but I'm just stating the facts, about our country. They've been brain washed by state's rights supremacists, like the former Jessie Helms of North Carolina. I can understand some older Cubans resent Fidel Castro, taking their property, but this is not Cuba and Fidel Castro's Revolution. The same goes for people that hate Chavez too. I just don't think newly arrived immigrants should call natives that were here long before them, stealing or turning their country into anything, especially when that system of Government was here long before they even arrived here. I have no problem with them participating in our system, and welcome them with open arms, but wouldn't that be kinda rude if you disrespect those that accept you?
