Unlike most other Americans born and raised in freedom, Cuban Americans know a thing or two about Marxist tactics. They also know that if you don’t fight back, communists will take everything you have.

Cubans in Louisville Denounce Black Lives Matter ‘Mafia Tactics’

Cubans and other community members in Louisville, Kentucky, gathered on Aug. 2 to denounce tactics used by Black Lives Matter activists that some described as similar to methods of pressure used by the mafia.

The activists “should be ashamed of themselves,” Fernando Martinez, a Cuban immigrant who owns La Bodeguita de Mima, said at the rally.

People calling him names haven’t taken the time to get to know him, Martinez continued, adding: “How can I be called a bigot and a racist when my family is black? When my son is gay?”

While Cubans oppose socialism because they escaped from an oppressive socialist country, they don’t oppose the black community, the restaurant owner stresses.

“La Bodeguita is open to everybody,” Martinez said. “If you’re gay, this is your home. If you’re black, this is your home. If you’re white, this is your home. If you’re human, this is your home.”

According to the list of demands, circulated by activists in July, business owners must increase the percentage of black people on their staff to 23 percent or more, purchase at least 23 percent of inventory from black retailers or donate 1.5 percent of new sales to “Black Local Organizations,” and implement diversity training.

Business owners should also acknowledge black people were harmed when they were displaced because of changes in parts of downtown decades ago.

Unless owners comply by Aug. 17, activists plan to post negative reviews and social media posts about them, according to WDRB, which published a photograph of the demands.
