[by Blue Telusma] OPINION: The ongoing conflicts in the island nations have repercussions in America where punishment is meted out for any threat to white supremacy

A lot of people have been blowing me up over the last two weeks asking me to speak up about what’s happening in Cuba and normally I would, as it’s always been my way to lend a voice in these times.

But as a woman of Haitian and Cuban lineage living in the United States, this subject hits home in a very personal way. And so I took some time to reflect and ask myself, “What message could I possibly convey to my American friends about why they should care about any of this? How does this impact them?”


And as is usually the case when it comes to the diaspora, the answer to that query can be found by taking a look at history.
