1619 Project writer Nikole Hannah-Jones defends Cuban socialism amid growing crisis

Historic protests in Cuba decrying the deteriorating economic conditions and absence of basic freedoms for its citizens have made headlines in recent days and garnered the support of millions, but according to controversial “1619 Project” creator Nikole Hannah-Jones, that country should actually be celebrated as a model of equality and racial integration, as Fox News reports.

It was revealed over the weekend that Hannah-Jones took part in a 2019 podcast hosted by Vox’s Ezra Kleinin which she was asked if she believed there were any parts of the world that could boast a “viable and sufficiently ambitious integration agenda” of the sort she advocates for the United States.

In response, the investigative journalist replied that in her estimation, the country with the most “multiracial” and “equal” construct anywhere in the Western hemisphere would have to be Cuba, and the reason for that outcome, according to Hannah-Jones, was the embrace of socialism by the island nation’s leadership.

“Cuba has the least inequality between Black and white people anyplace really in the hemisphere. I mean, the Caribbean, most of the Caribbean, it’s hard to count because the White population in a lot of those countries is very, very small,” she explained, adding, “But in places that are truly at least biracial counties, Cuba actually has the least inequality. And that’s largely due to socialism – which I’m sure no one wants to hear.”

As Tiana Lowe of the Washington Examiner points out, however, those comments are just the latest example of the left’s laser focus on matters of “equity” to the exclusion of any real concerns over basic justice and human rights.

In a recent op-ed for the outlet, Lowe agreed with the literal accuracy of Hannah-Jones’ equality premise, but sarcastically emphasized, “Everyone is equal in a bread line or the Gulag, just as everyone is equal in the grave. So what if communism failed at improving the lives of the working class? If the only metric is literally equality with a special salience cast on race, then of course Cuba should be an extraordinary success!”

Lowe’s biting takedown of Jones continued, “Sure Cubans may feel compelled to send their children abroad on flotillas made of trash to escape the poverty and oppression wrought by their government, But…have you seen how equal all the races are?”

The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation last week issued a statement of its own on the situation in Cuba, blaming current unrest not on the oppression imposed by the totalitarian government on its impoverished citizenry, but on the U.S. embargo against the country while also parroting statements of that nation’s Communist leadership.

As University of Texas history professor Jorge-Felipe Gonzalez recently wrote in The Atlantic, “Cuba is not an empty canvas onto which Americans can project their political ideas and not a utopian vehicle to advance some fantasy of socialist equality,” but that truth is unlikely to stop dishonest, opportunistic race hustlers from trying just the same.
