After that, Canadians are by far the worse tourists Cuba receive, they are scroungy, petty and they are very "pro-Castro" and "antiamerican" and Cubans, even communist ones, are proamericans. They are quite envious. When they take a "all-inclusive" resort, they swarm all buffets and behave like scum. Not even Cuban, that recently went through a famine, behave like that.

The most popular tourists in Cuba are Italians, they have a similar character to Cuban populace. North Europeans are also very popular and love the place and there's an ever growing presence of Russians, some know Cuban very well. Russians never were popular during the USSR, but now they come as big spenders and are a pain in the ass for governmental authorities because they are always saying "ahhh, we did things the same way, but not the right way...", etc.

Spaniards are "gallegos" and there's still a lingering memory going to the times when "gallegos" came as immigrants, so "gallegos" are not viewed as "Europeans" but as "gallegos", not viewed as foreign enough.

This is all very true. I agree 100%. Also,Chavez has taken most of Cuba's doctors from Pinar Del Rio so now the region has none (or at least it didn't in 2009)

In your racist opinion you find Mexican tourist bad just because they are after white girls, who´s entitle to go after white girls? Or you hate the fact that they have money to go and spend it in Cuba, while you were starving. You don’t like Canadians because they are pro Castro. But you love America and Europeans. You sound like a sore loser to me.

The Mexicans act despicably in Cuba. They treat people like crap.

And I hate those tourists who wear Che Guevarra T -Shirts. They have no idea the amount of suffering caused in his name, while they go home and sip latte in Starbucks.

Your tourist dollars do very little to benefit the average Cuban - it benefits the clowns who run the place.

How is that so, as far as everyone knows, is an american tradition to go to third world countries, looking for underage boys and girls, to have sex with them, that’s really despicable. But Americans in general don’t care, since third world inhabitants to most Americans are consider subhuman. Ask an Iraqi mother whos sons had been murdered by americans and from all the other countries America as invaded who they find most despicable Mexican or americans. The only reason they put up with americans is that they need money. And Cuban are no different than the rest of latin americans.

Interesting that we don't see the same amount of effort, not even close, to prove how African this or that city or country in LatAm is.
If there's any, then (places in) Cuba would certainly be among the most African ones in that part of the world.
What have you smoked? Although there is obviously a large African component in Cuba, it's actually one of the least African countries in the Caribbean.

i agree with the statement you are making a rebuttal to.

And whoever made up the story of "Castro 'made' Cuba more black" , must be totally miseducated .

If you want to further eradicate your statement... simple as this...........

When America was segretated and openly racist............... What teams were in the NEGRO LeAGUES?

Funny how history gets white-washed and people do follow some pretty ignorant opinions. But again, it's this simple.

New York Cubans (started in 1920s or 30s ) were in the Negro Leagues. and that placement was made by white people... A european-tied aristocracy....... I think that says everything at that needs to be said............. This was before Castro .........

Now that countries are becoming Powerful they want to white wash the minds and have people assimilate to white culture so it won't be dominated by the world it treated so injustly for ages & still does to many extent....> Cuba again being a good example of the truth

Some people because they are of a certain color of skin, then they want to confirm everywhere.
Cuba has nothing to resemble any african place, the blacks in Cuba didn't have the change to inser any flavour when they arrived because they were slaves. Period. Their decendents have no architectonical connection with their Afrian roots, just as in the case of USA and many other countries in the AMERICAS. Sorry to disapoint you

There is no "africanism" in Cuba's buildning, city planning or related.

[SIZE=3]If you as a tourist go to typical tourist places you will encounter jineteros and jineteras, which are the poorest people in the country, which in turn are usually blacks[/SIZE]

For a city to be European, you need it to look European in more than its architecture. Lima, Peru looks very European in architecture. The people? Not so much.

If you want Europe, go to Europe. You won't get it in Cuba, despite the (crumbling) architecture. This eurocentrism diminishes the overall charm of a country, which in Cuba's case has an IMMENSE amount of Native and African influence, which has only increased since the Cuban white flight.

[SIZE=3]That is another racist myth, that the ALL or most of the white Cubans left the country. It is NOT true. Many black Cubans left also the island, but they ended up in NY, Chicago rather than in Miami. If you as a tourist go to typical tourist places you will encounter jineteros and jineteras, which are the poorest people in the country, which in turn are usually blacks[/SIZE]
