Matt also one thing that many do not understand is that the white Cubans which are the ones in Miami are from English, Spanish, and other European. For example my mother’s side her father came to Cuba from Spain at the age of 18. On my mother’s side also her mother or my great grandmother was french born.
On my father’s side his grandmother was English. The English and Spaniards killed all the Native Cubans on the island. So there was no real Cubans left.
The blacks were imported from Haiti to cut the sugar cane that the Cubans didn’t want to do that work and some stayed there.
When Castro took power many of the white business owners left to Miami. so almost all Cubans in Miami were business people.
