The campaign against Yoani emanating out of Havana continues to work overtime, although this extensive waste of effort is accompanied by neither talent, good taste, nor simple decency. And since they are racists inside and out, they just could not help but to portray Berta Soler as some sort of King Kong:

    That racist video should be sent to the Congressional Black Caucus, especially to those black congressman who have been to Cuba and have praised castro, people like Congressman Charles Rangel of Harlem.

    Racist? Don’t be silly. Only right-wing types are ever racist. I’m sure Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte and the Congressional Black Caucus would all be fine with this, which is just giving a bad Negro what she deserves. Besides, if this were truly racist, MSNBC would be all over it, now wouldn’t it?

    These days, Castro, Inc. wouldn't dare pull something so heavy-handed against gays.

    Asombra, you are absolutely right. Left-wing tyrannies are never racist, and least of all castro! Why it's common knowledge that Mandala was castro's bossom buddy! And Mandala can never, ever err! He's infallable.

    How silly of me to think otherwise.It must be my atrophied batistiano brain! Only rightwingers, republicans and tea party types can be racists!

    Could someone please translate the video into English? Or write out the dialgoue in Spanish so I can translate it and post it? As for the Congressional Black Caucus, they would probably find some way to rationalize it so they wouldn't have to deal with the cognitive dissonance of Cuba's reality vs. their fantasy.
