Blacks in Cuba: Forgotten and Far from Power

El Nuevo Herald, Posted: Dec 03, 2008

MIAMI Cubans think the mestizo population is marginalized from the best jobs on the island and that it is very unlikely that a black person could lead the country in the near future, according to the results of a study released this week. The poll interviewed 425 Havana residents in September and October on behalf of the independent academic project Cubabarmetro, to track citizens' attitudes about racial differences and how people see themselves in the context of modern Cuban society. The study concluded that despite its egalitarian promises, Cuba continues to have a problem with institutionalized racism. Authors of the report contend that existing legislation has ignored the mixed nature of Cuban society and has not done enough to promote equality in the fight for civil rights.
