Quote of the Day

“At the root of that is a great belittling of Cubans. It’s like we are some sort of little animals who only need a veterinarian and someone to teach us tricks and we’ll be fine.”

Enrique Del Risco, who left Cuba in 1996 and now teaches Spanish at New York University, explains to The New York Times how he feels when people tell him that while Cubans may not enjoy political freedoms under the Castro brothers, they should be grateful they have “universal health care” and “free education”.
