Understand one thing, regarding most of those clips of old Cuban evictees or their offspring, those people were not angels. They still mad because they were white people having a good time at the expense of native Cubans. While they were busy gambling, partying, and soliciting, Castro was turning servants into soldiers, and maids into militants, black and brown. So all that boo-hooing I hear from them today fails to make me dig my dusty violin set out the closet. There was always more to Castro’s story than some of us felt the major American news was telling us. Some of it good, some of it bad. Few people have survived so many murder attempts to both his life and character. Was Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz an angel? Hell no! It’s just that the buffoonery of the US made him look like one. When Castro took control of Cuba, President Dwight Eisenhower ordered the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to kill him. In order to prevent the hit from being linked to the US government, the agency contacted American mob leaders who lost the most money from their shutdown of Cuban casinos. It’s important to know that the mob in New York was known as the Mafia, and in Chicago they were called the “Outfit.” It was known already how the outfit already controlled Hollywood’s unions and of course Las Vegas’ casinos. Soon after they would set their sites on Havana, Cuba. At some point the US-backed Fulgencio Batista appointed Meyer Lansky as an Advisor on Gambling Reform (a move akin to appointing Charles Manson as head of Scientology, or as if things weren’t bad enough).
