Gee . . . I wonder why Cubans who fled a communist regime, on boats made of trash, would be voting against a party advocating for communism.

Castro had a reason for raising the "literacy rate" in Cuba.

He used the teaching of reading, writing, and even math to bombard students with non-stop Communist propaganda.

I couldn't find it quickly, but a Cuban refugee explained it very well in an article about a year ago.

It's been shown through statistics (take them with a grain of salt) that reading for pleasure is on the decline in the United States and Europe, with a high percentage of college graduates never picking up another book after their education completes.

Important note: the CCP allows for paper copies of 1984 to be retailed within the country because the Party's view is that proles will be addicted to television and other visual/auditory media while the "Inner Party" will be educated enough to understand the concepts in the book but not turn against the regime.

The research on "theory of mind" has been scant but I for one believe it has a grain of truth.

Cuban here...👋 The reason Cuban education is so “good” is because by 9th grade if you aren’t cutting it... you go to the fields to work like a dog and then maybe a trade school. Only the brightest go on to high school. So yeah. Looks great on paper. 🤷🏻‍♂️😂

Sounds like pretty much every commie shithole, hell, most countries except the US. And people wonder why are our literacy rates and education scores are so low. It's because we're damn near the only country who any where near honestly reports them, and for the population as a whole, not the select, pre-filtered few.

In 2018, the U.S. scored 25th globally on PISA (out of 77 placings), which ranks student achievement in math, science, and reading. Our average score was 495. The highest was China at 578.7. This may seem awful, but we do test all students (including LD who are capable of taking exams, even with assistance). No other country does this, and China only tests those who enter their best academies (so the highest ranking students in China).

Under those circumstances, we aren't doing that badly.

It's not surprising. Judging from my experiences in talking to (and breaking their minds) BernieBros, they either tend to be gigantic pieces of shit angry that they "have no choice but to work to live" (in a dead-end retail job because they have no qualifications for a better job or are too lazy to look for another profession) or naive teenage boys who are addicted to Reddit, are "atheist" because they think that makes them automatically smarter than their "not-hip" parents and are rebelling against a religious upbringing, usually substituting consumerism in place of it (cough cough OH BOY I LOVE MARVEL EXCEPT I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW ABOUT THEM BEFORE 2012/2008/2000).

braveContrarian 2 points ago +3 / -1 (edited)

tbh because of all the other issues its hard for me to press a point that the qualification system does in fact have problems and overlooks potentially qualified individuals because of bad weed-out mechanisms that do serve to make employee selection easier on companies but end up unintentionally becoming somewhat classist.

yes we do have financial aid, as well as state universities -- but these places can end up getting you into a locked state where you can't continue anymore because of how credits transfer between universities under a certain level (say you get 3 associates in one state uni, now you can never a bachelors anywhere else barred from all college unless you become filthy rich through crime to just pay the university bills from scratch, starting from year 0 even if your 40 years old and have all the credits already anyway. they dont count no more -- and financial aid disappears because "you already took the class even though it doesnt count")

so there are in fact terrible problems, the people who obtained qualifications arent the best (ive been openly challenging the greatest legends on earth to a battle of wits myself, nobody takes me serious enough to accept the challenge) and that there is TONS of latent talent and opportunity thrown right down the garbage.

fixing this situation, and fixing the people's view of communism still requires one concession from everyone else -- competition for their own position in society whether they view it as fair or not. it can be brutal and heavily capitalistic, but internal protectionism of the fields itself must die out.

if a man has all prerequisite, degree in hand or not, they are qualified. it doesnt matter if they learned from a library, the internet or a college. if they have all the same answers at an equal competency level they are equal. in fact if they learned it without school -- they arent equal, they are BETTER/SUPERIOR.

in most other respects im on your side. i also disagree with the left's solutions because we are not all equal however, there are elites hidden among the failures because of failings in the system. it generally leads those kind of people into becoming high-level criminals and the like instead of beneficially participating in society, which they easily could if selected in rather than out.

tbh in a way i cant blame them for being supercriminals, robbing the companies which refuse to acknowledge them. they couldve hired them instead.

BlooeElfSupporter 4 points ago +5 / -1

Perhaps I can weigh in a bit? I used to support Bernie and Yang before this May, before I swallowed the red pill and never looked back. Despite their radically different approach and what many think, Trump and Bernie are both anti-establishment populists. They believe in giving people back the power the Washington Establishment stole from us (not sure if that's Bernie's true intention, but it is certainly Trump's). So I believe at least in that regard, Trump and Bernie supporters are similar. Just my two cents.

I went to Cuba in 2010 it was sad how poverty stricken and backwards they were. No cell service. Wifi was in one corner of the hotel, everyone stood around waving their phones in the air trying to get a signal to send email. US credit cards did not work so you got local currency with no where to exchange it. The food was basic. If you want good Cuban food go to Miami in Cuba it basically lettuce and meat with no spice. Nobody wants to work hard farming when you make $20/month. Of course the Castro family and top govt officials lived like kings and queens while every one else lived in squallor. Same like former communist countries in USSR. Fuck commies.

Rufus_Shinra 6 points ago +6 / -0

I read an interview of a doctor in Cuba and he said he works 60 to 70 hours a week and makes the equivalent of $20 a month. Communism and socialism fail because there's no motivation for anyone to work hard, innovate or create anything of value. The elite take it all and own everything even your life, which is the ultimate dream of the leftists in America.

This is the biggest misconception they have. I am an immigrant and I love this country and our president. Also, most of the immigrants I know have conservative views and they really like Trump. There's a huge difference between legal and illegal immigration.

Most hardcore liberals just don't know how good they have it here. They should spend a year or two in their utopian countries like Venezuela; I am pretty sure they would start to appreciate their own country.

Yeah, it was meant to be "inclusive" to Latinos who don't "identify" as male or female, but rather as "non binary". The way I liked seeing Latino and Latina merged was around briefly (2005-2008ish) : [email protected] I wish that had caught on, if we must have a merger word.

You know the Irony of "non binary?" Every person I know who 100% fits the actual on-paper description of a "non binary" person absolutely HATES the entire concept of non-binary being a "gender". Non binary means you don't strongly "type" to either traditional masculine or feminine personality traits, BUT you are still a man or a woman, but you might have some personality traits of the other gender.

But every actual, sane non-binary will tell you, end of the bloody day you have a penis or a vagina. You are one or the other. A non-binary man is still a MAN. These people want to just live their lives as normal men or women, but being accepted that they are not strongly typed one side or the other. A good example would be a man who wants to marry a women, live as a man, but say managed their social life more like a woman than a man, or work in "social" industries, like say hair-care or home services. Or say a woman who doesn't really care to be highly social, but really, really wants to run a machine shop.

What the liberal faggots want is to create new genders to get attention, and social power over normal people. These people are human trashfires with no redeeming qualities who are often NEETS, fat, ugly, often stupid, obnoxious, and very offensive fuckboi's running around looking like a potato in a dress going "you can't call me Sir I am xir, non-binary is a gender!" This generates backlash. Which really royally screws the sane and functional non binaries over. Now the woman who wants to run a machine shop is getting shit on for it because the blacklash attacks people who don't fit gender stereotypes.

Kinda like how actual transgender people are actually motives by the conflicted nature of their existence...to live highly productive lives as a member of their biological sex. And they view "being trans" as nothing but attention-whoring faffery. They recognize that trans is a mental illness, that their lot in life is to be the gender that matches the body parts, and that struggle against the illness builds their character.

Which is actually very similar to why Black Americans have all turned on BLM. Attention whoring faffery by faggots who primarily want attention, and seriously harms the actual sane and productive people who could technically fit the

Your HR is wrong. LatinX was invented by americans. It's not a real word in Spanish.

It's hard to go to the frontpage that's for sure, even as tailored as mine is. Anti-Trump and leftist anti-white rhetoric is everywhere, sports subs, video game subs, it's even crept into fight subs. Right now on r/fightporn a video is stickied of a a trans beating a "transphobe" and has been stickied for weeks now, I refuse to click on it. Every other post is "racist get's what he deserves" and it's a white guy getting stomped by a black guy. A few months ago that guy that got beat down in the Macy's, he was a manager I believe, it was hot shit on that sub and the title was something like I mentioned above, claiming he was racist and used the n-word. Anybody that doubted the narrative was downvoted into oblivion and as it turns out, the black dude literally sucker punched the guy and continued to beat him as he begged for "no reason". There was a pic of a trans person and I can't remember exactly what this person was claiming to be but it was something as simple as "proud trans gamer". It was just a pic of a tranny and it was heralded. Anything gay or trans or black is front page material and 99% of it doesn't deserve to be. Reddit is trash.

One of the issues that Leftists don't understand, is that recent immigrant familes overwhelming still see themselves as part of their culture and not our culture. That's one of the reasons why so many of us want to limit or stop immigration for a few generations. But one of the byproducts of this is that when the Left tries to start shoving this SJW wokespeak bullshit on these immigrants, they find it insulting. Being a Latino or a Latina is something they actually care about. It's their language. It's funny that if we were able to stop immigration for a generation or three entirely, and give the ones already here time to have to assimilate, by then a few more of them might actually buy into the wokespeak shit.

Immigrants have a responsibility to assimilate into American values and norms.

"No! How dare you! Immigrants can't be expected to assimilate into their new country! Intolerance! You have to print legal forms in every possible language translation! You racist!"

Also.

"Here's a dictionary of woke SJW language. You have to assimilate into woke now because colored people are naturally LGBTQPEDO+ allies. You have to be part of the collective marxist revolution, bigot."

  1. Latix isn't a thing. They are Latino's. Females are Latinas - the come only in two forms: short ancient tortilla lady, and hot weather girl. No exceptions

  2. Latinos love their family, love manliness in men and femininity in women (see point 1)

  3. Not super stoked on the gays. Not hateful, just traditional.

  4. They all escaped communist shit holes to be here, so they can work their dicks off and send money back to their families and send their kids to college. You can't blame them for trying to get all the free shit they are eligible to receive.

Conclusion - legal Latinos tend to be the most based.

You wouldn't? It's just different circumstances.

The average ANNUAL income in Guatemala is $1,619. If you're making $18/hr framing houses - you make more in 2 weeks than your dad makes in a year back home.

I'm not saying I want to engineer more remittances - because you're right - it bleeds equity out of our country. But at the individual level, sending your mom a years salary cuz you're flush with cash - that's based.

That being said - my story perfectly illustrates why we need merit based immigration. That way we're not depressing wages for the trades, and sending engineer money over to India

We've talked about it before on this sub but that's one thing I can't grip about blacks in America. What you just said about latinos could almost equally be said about blacks at large, especially if you exclude the ghettos. Most everyday normal American blacks I've interacted with have large extended families oftentimes having grandparents living in the home or live closeby and are heavily involved with the family, think the family from Family Matters. They're religious, also very traditional about gay shit. Yet they continue to vote Democrat year after year even though the Democrat platform is counter to their values.

We are not race realists.the conservative aspects of blacks are just how people normally behave around the world but most of the other values of their community line up with leftists. Leftist are very identitarian and blacks are the most identitarian group in America after Jews. The blacks you see everyday and interact with, are just a small fraction or outlier of the black community.Blacks can become more conservative and non-tribal but we have to be realistic and know the behaviour of the various demographics in the country.

Then no. You aren't. Not only literally but you didnt even assimilate -by your own words-

Americans trace their lineage via descendants of the british colonies with few exceptions from then to now such as the irish, some french and i suppose African Americans who trace their lineage to those times.

Anything else is revisionist globalism history. Nb4 you literally say revionist history "its about muh ideology"

He did it because Cubans settle in Florida and vote like 80% republican, and they need to win Florida.

The most disgusting part is that they try to turn peoples identity into Democrat brands. Unless you support the communist agenda of Black Lives Matter you aren't "Black." Unless you look the other way as LGBTQ normalizes pedophilia and rushes to adopt it as another letter of their mantra you aren't "gay" etc. If they could figure out how to brand and market a group for hispanic people I am sure that they would tell people they "aren't Cuban" if they don't support the democrat agenda.

I don't know how blind people have to be to not understand that the purpose of these groups is to present something friendly that they identify with, and then trick them into supporting something else entirely. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Black Lives Matter only supports Black's as far as they can exploit them as an agent of change for implementing their communist agenda. That is why they only speak out about Police violence and not Black abortion or Black on Black crime. While speaking out about all of these things would greatly benefit Black communities it does not advance the communist agenda therefor they are silent.

The key to winning the “hispanic/latino” vote is to stop using the blanket approach. As long as they are all lumped in the same basket the right will struggle to win what should otherwise be, overwhelming support from those groups.

I am Cuban and i can smell communism 10 miles away no matter how much dressing you put on it. The same cannot be said for a Mexican or Salvadorian. There are MAJOR differences from one group to another. Sharing a common language and base religion is not enough to unite them in any significant way. The history and culture varies far too much.

The right needs to reach out to these groups individually and remind them why they came to America in the first place. Because most of what the democrats are proposing is to turn the country into the very shitholes they fled.

This isn't rude at all. Only sjw soibois get upset at that. Illegal immigration needs to stop completely. The only Mexicans who want illegals to live here either:

A) don't speak English, and only speak Spanish

B) are on welfare

C) are racist and hate whites, blacks, and asians

D) illegals only live in the barrio where other Latinos live.

Liberals don't live in these areas and white liberals here in CA actively call my neighborhood a "bad area". Yes it's the barrio, but only illegal aliens are making it shit. No one here speaks English and everything looks like it's falling apart.
