Si alguien quiere opinar......


Demonstrators convened outside the Miami-Dade County school board building Tuesday to protest a Spanish-language travel book about Cuba that some Cuban immigrants feel doesn't belong on school shelves."Vamos a Cuba" was pulled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas Elementary School earlier this month after a parent who emigrated from the communist country complained to school administrators that the book doesn't accurately represent life there.The book is geared toward second- and third-grade readers, and details the events and institutions in Cuba born under Fidel Castro's regime.School officials said the book includes images of smiling children wearing uniforms of a communist youth group and a carnival celebrating the Cuban revolution .....

I am Cuban and have been here for a long time now. I left when I was 13 years old at the end of 1960. I despise the Castro regime. I have never gone back, send no money and live for the day he is gone. But I believe in the freedom I have found here and will honor and protect it. One of these important freedoms is freedom of expression. I would never try to keep this book out of the library. The way to fight infamy is with truth and not supression. We as Cubans should really know that well. The way to deal with this is to openly have programs that educate in the errors in the book. The best way to deal with it is with educating our children with the truth and comparing the reality of Cuba today with the fantasy proclaimed in the book. This is how we truly win. Castro loves the controvery os banning the book...we are giving him what he wants! What we need to do is compare the truth and reality of life there with the way it is portrayed in the book.!

Defenders and critics can agree on one thing: The exile generation came to Miami and changed the city forever.
Nosotros los cubanos cambiamos a Miami.FOREVER

Se ha preguntado alguien en este blog como lo he hecho yo, si el susodicho libro fue puesto en los colegios por los mismos cubanos que se oponen a ese con toda intencion y el firme proposito de traer a la palestra una nueva controversia que caldee los animos a nivel local; dado que el "exilio historico" esta en sus ultimos estertores y necesitan una nueva batalla de ideas que les permita mantener la industria de los votos en las proximas elecciones y seguir lucrando a traves de las organizaciones que se nutren de los fondos federales y las contribuciones de "los viejitos" que nos quedan?

Despues de la gran controversia por el retorno del nino Elian Gonzalez a Cuba se necesita una nueva controversia para mantener "la industria" viva ya que careceran de fondos para seguir "viviendo del cuento" y se estan preparando para las proximas elecciones presidenciales y el partido Republicano necesita el voto "cubano-americano".

Dicho sea de paso - valga la redundancia con lo de "cubano-americanos" - ya que todos en este hemisferio que conforman los continentes de America del Norte, Central y del Sur, incluyendo el Caribe, somos "americanos" por nuestra posicion geografica.

Sinceramente : "Food for thought" -A los buenos entendidos, pocas palabras.
