Racist Cuba

Racist Cuba

I figure this is the place to unload my unfavorable impressions of Cuba:

The cops are totally racist in Cuba. I was traveling with my whitish girlfriend, and a very black English friend. Havana cops were purely racist. I was the only Spanish speaker of the three of us, and had to explain left and right that he wasn't Cuban. We went to Vinales, and they wouldn't rent us a room as a threesome, because he was a "nigger." Cuba is clearly a racial paradise. Fuck's sakes, even Puerto Rico is more racially enlightened than Cuba. Whatever. Don't bother traveling interracially in Cuba, because the cops there are about as racist as they come. Cuba was a lot of fun, but only for white tourists.

Racism seems to evaporate with prosperity but is exasperated by poverty. As long as everybody has pie we're all too busy eating to fight. Hunger and blame go hand in hand with racism.
