I do not want to make assumptions, but your opinions appear to be based on nothing. The Cubans are thrilled with Obamas visit, they see hope, something they have not ever had under the oppresive Castro regime. Yes America gave Cuba prostitution and gambling, but the world has changed so very much and now if America can bring them some form of capitalism a better life and hope it will be a great leap forward. P.S. The Spanish gave them a plantation economy not the U.S..
