When Nicaraguans started coming in the 80s, Cubans gave them a slur: tira flecha (arrow thrower)
Because to them, Indian is synonymous with dumb, backward, uncivilized, heathen...etc etc the usual colonized mindset that has endured for 500 years
Never mind the Nicaraguans were fleeing a civil war and a communist regime, while the Contras were Reagan's "freedom fighters." They were first and foremost "Indios" to the cac Cuban Miami power structure.
Cubans also forget that before they took over in the early 80s (Mariel, Cocaine Cowboys era), this was common when whites lived in Miami:
Cubans paid them back with sheer numbers, and white people left Miami. Cubans eventually took control of all the levers of power. How many immigrant communities can say they have multiple Congressmen and a Senator who explicitly look out for their interests above all else?
So yeah, Dems should definitely keep running with the "BIPOC LATINX COALITION" winning strategy here.
