Black Lives Matter is praising the Cuban communist regime and blaming the U.S. for the current political unrest in Cuba.
BLM has sent out a tweet blaming the U.S. embargo for Cuba’s crisis, and credited the Cuban government for historically granting asylum to who it calls “black revolutionaries.”
U-S Senator Marco Rubio of Florida was quick to respond.
He tweeted, “The extortionist ring known as the Black Lives Matter organization took a break today from shaking down corporations for millions and buying themselves mansions, to share their support for the Communist regime in Cuba.”

These protests are nowhere near the size and public impact of other countries, a fact demonstrators blame on Brazilians’ continued complacence on the streets and the halls of political power.
