Latinos Vote

Latinos in Milwaukee voted 77% for Biden and in PA 82% for Biden.

The thing about Latinos is that they aren’t all the same. Believe my expertise as a scholar of Hispanic Studies. This is not a uniform group AT ALL. The Cubans and the Venezuelans in FL are, in terms of their politics, absolutely nothing like Central Americans, Puerto Ricans and Mexicans. These are very different people. They also have many things in common. But there are crucial differences.

Latin Americans do not give up on their century-long dream of socialism easily until they finally reach it and then sour on it. The US should have let them in peace during the Cold War to play it out and get fed up. But they didn’t and now the dream is as strong as ever.
