Working spouses who share household chores are becoming common, but socializing children is still predominantly a female role even among family-oriented men. Male authority is invoked and appealed to, but women's authority over many domains and activities is recognized." Cuban Americans Many Cuban Americans have some ability with Spanish. Cuban Americans born in the United States tend to be English speakers and have less ability with Spanish. According to Countries and Their Cultures (2010) "many Cuban Americans use Spanglish to talk with friends and acquaintances, incorporating English words, phrases, and syntactic units into Spanish grammatical structures."
Puerto Ricans like Mexican Americans, who are born in the United States of immigrant parents report that English is the language most spoken. Puerto Ricans have had United States citizenship ship and freedom to travel to the United States since 1917 although voting rights came later. In Puerto Rico, poverty and unemployment was high encouraging many to immigrate to the United States. Now that Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of the United States, the Puerto Ricans

Andy Lai 1/24/12 HIS 146 ESSAY 1 The history of Cuba was first documented with the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1492 which was then colonized by the Spaniards during the 16th century. Since its colonization, Spanish Cuba’s economy had remained stagnant for centuries. The island’s economy comprised of pastoral pursuits and agriculture; the island of Cuba primarily served as a stopping point for the Spanish fleet in transit between Spain and the New World. A series of events that transpired during the 19th century had awakened Cuba’s economy dramatically. What was once just a mere stopping point for the Spanish fleet had now become the major sugar producer in the world during this time.
Thierry Monteiro English 010-04 Portfolio Open Section 12/4/12 Cocaine Cowboys In the 1980s Miami Florida was just beginning to the crime capital of the nation, but it had also been the drug capital for a decade. FBI issued its annual list of the ten most crime-ridden cities in the nation last September, Three of them were in South Florida. Miami was in a first place, West Palm Beach was fifth and Fort Lauderdale was eight. An estimated 70% of Cocaine imported to the U.S passes through South Florida. When president of Cuba Fidel Castro agreed to allow citizens to leave in response to a tough Cuban economy, many of them departed to the United States and landed in South Florida which increased the crime rate in the city of Miami.

Raul’s brother, Fidel, was the leader of Cuba for almost 50 years and now another Castro will be in charge for ten. In the U.S. and other developed nations, power switches hands much more often. I am sure there are both opponents and supporters of the Castro’s in Cuba, but it is interesting how one family can lead a country for so long. The people just seem to accept it even if they are living in bad conditions. The lack of complacency and the hunger for improvement on the part of the people is what I think has made America the greatest country in the world for so long.
This component may be the toughest to grasp due to the abstract nature of the term African American culture. What does that actually mean? Africa is a place of many great and diverse nations to say African American though viewed differently is an very broad term if u look at it as classifying a person from Africa that has migrated to the Americas. A proper term for that would be Nigerian-american or Gahnan-american.

Since New York City is home to the largest Dominican community outside of the island it has attracted the most attention by scholars. One book that examines the migration between New York and Dominican Republic is Between Two Islands: Dominican International Migration (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1991) by Patricia Pessar and Sheri Grasmuck. Contrary to popular perceptions the migration of Cuban exiles to the United States dates to the nineteenth century well began before the Cuban Revolution. In “With All, and for the Good of All’” The Emergence of Popular Nationalism in the Cuban Communities of the United States, 1848-1898 (Durham NC: Duke University Press, 1989) Gerald Poyo focuses on those exiled Cubans who found support for their popular nationalist ideas among Cuban workers in Key West, Tampa and New York City. In With Open Arms: Cuban Migration to the United States (New York: Rowman and Littlefield, 1988) Felix Masud-Piloto provides an overview of 20th century Cuban migration to the United States within the context of U.S.-Cuba relations and the Cold War.
Kevin Davis Professor Weiland History 1302 25 February 2014 Causes of the Spanish-American War Out of the entire Spanish Empire that prospered in 1492, Cuba was one of the last standing countries in the late 1800’s. The Spanish Empire was crumbling to pieces it seemed. Cuba was growing tired of being attached to their mother country, Spain so they spend several years trying to gain independence and eventually it would lead to the Spanish-American War. There were a few causes leading up to the war including The Ten Years War, American imperialism, the explosion of the U.S.S Maine in the Havana Harbor, the effects of yellow journalism against Spain in the New York Journal, and the blockade of Cuban ports when Spain denied the United
