With just $0.05 a day, this Blueprint will make us strong, firm warriors in the battle to end poverty-->

Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Black Cuba/White Cuba

Eleven million Cubans survive under the world’s longest economic embargo. Cuba, located 90 miles from Florida’s coast, is famous for Fidel Castro’s Revolution and America’s Guantanamo Bay prison. Structural deterioration and 1950s era automobiles blend with modern construction. Medical and educational access is renowned; however, so is prostitution. For a small island with little economic stature, Cuba plays an over-sized role in American culture and politics. And, Cuba's color line shows how Latin America's racial history can impact U.S. race-relations.

The Cuban-American lobby is conservative and powerful. Florida’s delegates are crucial to any successful presidential bid. Issues involving Cuba receive special attention. President Barack Obama loosened family restrictions on Cuban travel. Based on the U.S. Census, America's Cuban population increased by 44 percent, growing from 1.2 million in 2000 to 1.8 million in 2010. Policies now allow 20,000 Cubans to legally migrate to America, annually. Famous Cuban-Americans include Gloria Estefan and Andy Garcia.  | PoliticsInColor.com
