Response to Azathoth (Reply #21)

22. True - and partly out of a need to identify with white people (whom they believe to be mostly GOP)

While Cubans are mainly mulatto (i.e. people who look like Obama or Kamala Harris), those who've left Cuba tend to be white.

And like nearly all white Latin Americans, what they resent - and fear - most of all is being "lumped in" with Mexicans, Central Americans, and the like.

For many white Latin Americans (not all, of course) voting Republican has long been seen as act of "belonging" to the U.S. white community.

A community which, by and large, doesn't accept them anyway.

Least of all, Republicans.
