More coverage of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s “Chillin’ with Apartheid” tour in Cuba to promote the rampant apartheid on the communist island run by a dictatorial, white European family of racists.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z stroll in Havana

Beyoncé and Jay-Z spoke with several Cubans during their walk but declined to answer journalists’ questions on their visit to the communist-ruled island.
The government-run CubaSí website reported the couple is on a tourist visit, although that would be illegal under the half-century old U.S. embargo. Washington does issue special licenses, however, for cultural, religious, academic, and other types of visits.
ICM talent agency in Los Angeles said it had no information on the visit. Beyoncé’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure in New York, did not return El Nuevo Herald calls.
The superstar couple was first spotted in Cuba on Wednesday night as they entered La Guarida, “The Hideout,” a restaurant on an upper floor of a crumbling early 1900s palace where the hit Cuban film Strawberry and Chocolate was filmed.
