This is a tale of two black women in Cuba... One a victim of apartheid in Cuba, the other a beneficiary of apartheid in Cuba.
The first is Sonia Garro, born and raised in Cuba. She is currently residing in a Castro prison for the crime of demanding respect for human rights and the freedom to express her views. After being violently arrested, she and her husband (who is also black) have been held for more than a year by the Castro dictatorship without charges and without a trial. The world for the most part does not know who she is and there has been little to no outcry for the injustice she is suffering.
The second black woman is Beyonce Carter, an American music superstar born and raised in the United States. She is currently vacationing in Cuba with her husband, music mogul Jay-Z, as VIP guests of the apartheid dictatorship of the Castro family. She is enjoying the luxuries offered in Cuba only to foreigners, which is staffed by the slaves owned by the Cuban regime, the majority of which are Afro Cubans. The world has been enthralled by the stories and pictures coming out of Cuba of her and her husband strolling the streets of Havana accompanied by bodyguards and handlers from the Castro dictatorship. For the most part, there has been little to no outcry over their incredibly insensitive and idiotic decision to vacation in Cuba and provide support and publicity for a racist regime that would have imprisoned her and her outspoken husband if they had the misfortune of being born in Cuba.
Now imagine how a black Cuban woman like Sonia Garro must feel after hearing that a prominent and influential black American woman has visited her country and instead of advocating for and demanding her release and the end of the apartheid system in Cuba, she is instead partying with regime officials and enjoying amenities not only built and maintained by enslaved blacks in Cuba, but denied to them as well.
Beyonce is a fraud. A limousine liberal elitist.
Anyone who goes to that island gulag, known as Cuba is on my s-list.
Liberals love socialism and communism - because they think they will be in charge and in power...
Rodman goes to North Korea, now Beyonce goes to Cuba. This is anything but a coincidence.
They can keep her, and her pimp husband.
you forgot... NO TALENT HACK
Since my super power to that I say things most people leave unsaid, I’m on this.
Beyonce is an Uncle Tom, pure and simple.
look at the Jews in WW2....some Jews thru out Europe actually assisted the Nazis....others, like in America, did little, and then when they did act, it was too late...
what really angers me is the refusal of people to study and KNOW the truth....like the truth about Che Guaverra.(sp?)....who was a known racist and hated homosexuals as well...
yet, the chic young people wear his damn shirts....
I don't get it....
Beyonce-THE ugly American.
What is it with them, JayZ strugging with his Cuban cigar hanging out of his mouth ...his wife strolling through like she’s an African queen.
These people are so about themselves ..their egos — it’s NEVER about helping anyone — all self aggrandizing and self promotion — look at me, Mr. Big Shot.
I get it that when you come from nothing, when you all of a sudden have money, you like to show it off — but they just never realize exactly how silly they look doing it.
