Videos posted on social media show Cubans young and old calling for “liberty,” and chanting “Down with the dictatorship” and “Down with communism.” There’s a reason they’re not crying out things more like, “We hate the America” and “U.S. sucks.” You would have to attend a BLM rally for that.https://nypost.com/2021/07/15/blm-shows-its-true-colors-in-statement-praising-cuba/
BLM under fire for defending Cuban regime, blaming protests on US
By Lee Brown. (New York Post)

“Cuba has historically demonstrated solidarity with oppressed peoples of African descent,” the group wrote — praising it for “protecting black revolutionaries” like Assata Shakur, the former Black Panther who fled prison in 1979 while serving life for the execution-style murder of a New Jersey state trooper.
