In what shouldn’t come as a shock to any of you, a podcast that includes ‘1619 Project’ founder Nikole Hannah-Jones, a hero to the BLM crowd, praising Cuba as probably the most “equal” nation within the Western hemisphere has surfaced. In the 2019 podcast, Hannah-Jones praised Cuba as one of the “multiracial” nations due to its socialist society and led her to say “Cuba has the least inequality between black and white people anyplace really in the hemisphere.”
You have to provide Nikole a sluggish clap for preserving it actual right here. She’s so proper in the truth that there’s zero inequality as to which race(s) are handled like rubbish in Cuba. It’s one large ol’ melting pot of socialism treating all individuals equally. You’re poor. And you’re poor. And you’re poor. And you’re poor.
It’s wild to assume that Hannah-Jones and Black Lives Matter would have related mindsets relating to Cuba. BLM loves the Communist regime and Hannah-Jones can’t get sufficient of the equality that the regime has delivered to individuals of all races. It’s fairly extraordinary to those individuals.
In a 2008 op-ed printed by The Oregonian, Hannah-Jones wished Americans to get to know the Cuba she discovered about throughout a visit with fellow journalists. On that journey, Nikole discovered that Cuba has a 99.8 p.c literacy charge, the bottom HIV an infection charge within the Western Hemisphere, “free” school and well being care. It was precisely the kind of stuff a communist regime loves for a journalist to write down about.
Let’s face it, Hannah-Jones was impressed with what she noticed on the journey.
“Black Cubans especially are wary of outsiders wishing to overthrow the Castro regime. They admit the revolution has been imperfect, but it also led to the end of codified racism and brought universal education and access to jobs to black Cubans,” she wrote. “Without the revolution, they wonder, where would they be?”
Here’s one factor I want Hannah-Jones would’ve requested these black Cubans: If you might escape this nation proper now, the place would you go?
It’s a easy query. It’s easy.
Black writers within the U.S. have written extensively how black Cubans give Fidel Castro credit score for “providing them greater opportunities, even if they haven’t always resulted in a markedly better life,” as DeWayne Wickham wrote for the Undefeated.
Now, let’s test in with Cuba to see simply who these offended protestors are in 2021. Look at that, life is so markedly higher for black Cubans. They’re so glad with these shitty jobs that they’ve taken to the streets to inform a authorities that’s going to beat their heads in that they’re fed up.
The protesters are younger, primarily black and dismiss the Castros’ revolution of 1959 towards an American-backed tyrant as historic historical past https://t.co/5MQ1roHaa2

“The Cuban regime has the political power, but it no longer has the people on its side,” Fabiola Santiago from the Miami Herald wrote final week. “When it comes to Cuba, Black Lives Matter is standing on the wrong side of history.”
You can add Hannah-Jones to that listing as nicely.
