Cuba: Thinking about Racism

Fernando Dámaso blogs about the complex issue racism in Cuba, here.

  • What is also racist is the refusal to learn about our own origins. All people originate from Africa, that’s genealogy. We know this as fact now. But no, all people do not have Spanish decent in Cuba. This is also reality.

    I believe in the human race, and yes, all individuals have the potential to be racist in the society we live in. I do not need to colorize the human experience, but I do need to understand our history geographically. The sooner we all embrace our origins, the sooner we can begin to alleviate and further, eradicate racism.
