    Reminds me of that old coal mining song, "St Peter don't you call me cuz I can't go, I owe my soul to the company store". Tennessee Ernie Ford I think.

    Re: Hidden racism in Cuba

    The OP is a joke. I watched a good part of that program (it was quite interesting) and it talks about the historical racism in Cuba, just as we talk about about the historical racism here in the US. The OP tries to present the program as if it is discussing modern-day racism in Cuba, but that is nothing but deceit.

    because - of course: the more ahead on the timeline any culture moves the less racist they are, naturally.

    Does it matter? I'm sure many are and many arent' - just like in present day US.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Well, I should have amended my statement by saying that there is almost definitely modern day racism in Cuba, but the manner in which the OP tries to present the program- that they are talking about modern Cuban racism when they are in fact discussing historical Cuban racism- is deceitful.

    By "a good part of the program" I assume you didn't watch it until the end. That is where modern day racism is discussed in depth. That is also the part where a hip hop artist in Cuba is not allowed to perform songs he has written about modern day racism in Cuba because it is considered subversive to the state. Keep watching it is really interesting stuff.

    The fishermen probably just wanted to see what the new visitor would give for 5 lobster, and they discovered... not so much.
