“If you want to see the most equal multi-racial democ… — it’s not a democracy — the most equal multi-racial country in our hemisphere, it would be Cuba,”
As the people of Cuba rise up to protest their communist government, now is a good time to recall that 1619 Project author Nikole Hannah-Jones once claimed that socialism was responsible for solving the problem of racism in Cuba.
Does that mean that she thinks socialism would solve America’s racism problems as well?
David Rutz reports at FOX News:
Nikole Hannah-Jones once called Cuba ‘most equal multi-racial country in our hemisphere’
“1619 Project” journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones praised Cuba as the “most equal multi-racial country in our hemisphere” in a 2019 interview and attributed its success in that regard to socialism.
In a podcast uncovered by the right-wing National Pulse, Vox’s Ezra Klein asked the New York Times Magazine writer if there were places she believed had a “viable and sufficiently ambitious integration agenda.”
Admitting she’s “not an expert on race relations internationally,” Hannah-Jones said her answer could surprise people.
“If you want to see the most equal multi-racial – it’s not a democracy – the most equal multi-racial country in our hemisphere, it would be Cuba,” Hannah-Jones said. “Cuba has the least inequality between black and white people of any place really in the hemisphere … Most of the Caribbean, it’s hard to count because the white population in a lot of those countries is very, very small, they’re countries run by black folks, but in places that are truly at least biracial countries, Cuba actually has the least inequality, and that’s largely due to socialism, which I’m sure no one wants to hear.”

Cuba is technically communist, not socialist, but as Ayn Rand once pointed out, the only difference between the two is the method of implementation.

Earlier this week, Black Lives Matter sided with the communist regime in Cuba, blaming the U.S. for the island nation’s woes. The true motivations and ultimate goals of BLM and the 1619 Project seem to be coming into greater focus, don’t they?DONATE
