NYDN: Fidel Castro was an unwavering champion of racial equality

What the author doesn’t mention is that the population of Cuba has grown increasingly black. Why? Because most of the Cuban refugees were of European extraction.

I wonder whether this demographic change is one of the reasons that Cuba has lagged economically.

Ronald Howell writes: “I say the greatest media shortcoming of the past half century was not recognizing that Fidel Castro was the most dedicated and powerful proponent of racial justice the world has ever known.”
