Rolando Perez, “Identity”:

“Who is a Cuban? Is a Cuban someone of African descent brought to the island as a slave? Is that a Cuban? Cuba had a large Asian population. Weren’t the Chinese living in Cuba, who speak both Spanish and Chinese, also Cuban? How about the Spanish who came over and stayed like my grandparents, weren’t they Cubans? The native populations were wiped out early on. The Europeans would like to believe that Cuba, unlike the United States, is a country of racial harmony. What a myth that is!” (80)
