re: #100 Targetpractice

Still remember reading articles from a few years back about how second and third-gen Cuban-Americans have only the stories of their parents and grandparents about what the country was like before Castro. That it’s the older generations that are really holding onto this belief that one day they’ll be able to “go back home” and lay claim to what’s “theirs” with old deeds and stock certificates.

There’s definitely a generational divide. FIU does a poll of Cuban Americans (in Miami) every year. From the one released in January:

57% of Cuban Americans say the embargo hasn’t worked at all, including 65% of those over 75 years old. 60% of Cubans that came before 1980 say it hasn’t worked. Yet on the question of whether they support the embargo, “yes” wins 51-49. Almost 70% of those who came before 1980 and 73% of those over the age of 75 (likely a lot of cross over there, for what it’s worth). Still support the embargo. Those born mostly in the US oppose it 60-40.

That generational gap is real across every question that is asked.
