matt76, Agree with you! So in the 11 years you have not been here many things have changed. First we have many more Latins from South America which we Cubans do not get along with. They are from more progressive left wing governments and some are even Communist. I have talked to some from Brazil that are totally Communist.
South Florida does not have many Mexicans at all. So yes if you are an American in the North you really do not understand what is going on here and what the Cubans are about.
And yes the fight would be different but there would be a fight for sure. Here the Americans that live here would stand with the Cubans for sure.
