The ‘real’ Cuba according to Gucci

According to Gucci, the real Cuba is not an island prison ruled by an ironfisted apartheid dictatorship that has been mercilessly enslaving millions and brutally imprisoning and assassinating its opponents for more than a half century. As far as Gucci is concerned, the real Cuba is a glamorous place where stunning models stand around a luxurious pool wearing sunglasses at night.

Introducing, Gucci’s “Havana Collection”: A taste of the real Cuba.

  1. I was there 3 years ago as a tourist and that is the reality for those that go visit the island as tourists. And it could very well be for Cubans that have the financial resources to enjoy those luxuries. We don’t complain about these disparities in the U.S. Why should we object to them in Cuba?

  2. Why would anyone with the handle “marielito” go back to a country that, in effect, kicked him out and called him “escoria” [scum]? The mind boggles.

    (And we wonder why we are not taken seriously…)

  3. Marielito: If you can’t come up with an intelligent answer to your question; they didn’t raise you right.

  4. The obscenity of “anything for a buck” is related to the banality of evil. And TWFKAP, some of us don’t wonder at all, and haven’t wondered for ages.

  5. Some things should not be left unsaid, so this is for you marielito. You asked, “And it could very well be for Cubans that have the financial resources to enjoy those luxuries. We don’t complain about these disparities in the U.S. Why should we object to them in Cuba?” I’ll tell you why we and anyone who values freedom and respects human rights should object. Those Cubans who have the means to enjoy luxuries are doing so at the expense of their brutally repressed brethren struggling to feed themselves and their families, and the blood of the “revolution” victims. Equating income “disparities” in the U.S. vs. Cuba is ignoring the fact that a mass-murdering dictator controls the market in Cuba, and workers have no labor rights, and their livelihood is subject to the political whims of said dictator. In the United States, anyone purchasing Gucci or other luxuries have earned the money to do so by working at profession and job of their choice, living in a city and state of their choice, and are protected by a guarantee of human and labor rights; rights shared by all U.S. citizens. In this country, when you shop, you do so from the fruits of your labor, with wages freely and fairly earned, from stores whose owners and employees share those same freedoms, living in a free society under a freely elected representative government, not a totalitarian mass-murdering police state. If you can’t understand the difference, you should move back to Cuba.

  6. Ziva, I decided ago that people who asks questions like Marielito here are either too stupid to understand any answer you give them or evil. I generally believe it is the latter.

    To compare this country with Cuba as if they are the same is evil or stupid – there is no other choice.

    And long ago I decided that my time is too valuable to try to “teach” stupid people and certainly too valuable to try to reason with evil ones.

    I consider Marielito a troll here. And I do not bother giving trolls any respect. They do not deserve respect. It is better to ignore them, not give them attention.

  7. Honey, I long ago chose write the truth about Cuba, whether or not someone wants or deserves a response, and regardless of anyone else’s opinion. That’s my choice.
