The Cubans there are basically considered white. Most of them are very wealthy. What do you mean by not assimilated?

I see not assimilated to be the Mexicans in LA, Dominicans in NY etc

Is American culture correlated with being white?

Alot of it is.

Most whites are well-off. They are the wealthiest and most powerful people in this country. So the fact that Cubans can be considered white, shows great strides they have made as a group.

Cubans being considered white has little to nothing to do with wealth but more to do with the way they look, just as some Mexicans and other hispanics are considered white.

I knew a fella in the service years ago who was from Miami. He was an enjoyable person to be around. Maybe just one person means nothing, but first impressions are lasting ones. I wouldn't diss because of the city one hails from. I like to get to know the individual.

I spent about a week there a couplle of years ago, and didn't see anything wrong with it. Just another big city. Traffic is terrible on the freeways, because the city is linear, and everyone is on the same freeway. But off the freeways, I felt fine there.
