Racism? What Racism?

In Cuba there si no racism, didn't you know? That fallacy has been spread by regime friendly people for a long time. Yet actions speak louder than words; and we all know a picture is worth a thousand words.

A reader sent me this picture. We don't know the story behind it, but whatever this guy did there is no need to humiliate him by parading him naked and handcuffed. If anyone knows the story behind the picture please comment.

I'm sure this picture here in the state would cause outrage; Sharpton, Jackson, the ACLU, the NAACP all would jump on this as an example of police brutality towards people of color.

Yet, who speaks for this man? Who comes to his defense? Who accuses the regime of racism?

I can hear the cricketts chirping.
