I've got 99 problems & Cuba embargo is one



Drama in Havana


Jay-Z thought he'd surprise his boo and take her to one of the sweetest spots on earth, beautiful Havana, Cuba. Then all hell broke loose in southern Florida with some crazy Cuban pols, led by Senator Marco Rubio, calling for an investigation and the celebrity couple's prosecution. Stop the madness. It's time we--Cubans and every other American--revisit the oldest blockade in the world and debate the Cuba blockade openly and sanely!

I won an EMMY in 1995 for a show I produced on the issue of the blockade. A decade and a half later, we are still humoring the crazy.

Leave Bey and Jay alone. The issue is not their trip, the real problem is US Cuba policy.

I wrote an op-ed for CNN on the Bey-Jay Havana drama. A snippet:



"...For a long time, I've been of the opinion that the Cuban embargo policy in general is for Cubans on the island and the Diaspora to resolve. Those of us who have not suffered directly should stay out of it and let cubanosfigure their way out of this mess. But, what happens when political views of a few trample on an entire nation? And, what are the ramifications when these opinions border on the irrational?

The few but very influential pro-embargo lobby have put a stranglehold on a lucid discussion surrounding Cuba. Five decades of failed policy later, our nation is being held hostage unable to have a cogent discussion on anything Cuba-related..."
HERE is the entire piece. Please care. Read, chime in & share. We need to start caring about this issue, like pronto. Too many people suffering on both sides of the Florida straits.
