Cuba: Institutionalized racism

Mary O’Grady writes on a topic ignored by leftist bien-pensants: Institutionalized racism and how “the Cuban military dictatorship, run by a white junta, held and tortured the black political prisoner Eusebio Peñalver for 28 years”:
Mandela’s Message Didn’t Make It to Cuba
In Havana a small white clique rules a majority black nation.

As commenter Maria Werlau points out,

Most of the people jailed in Cuban prisons are Afro-Cubans and they are dying at an alarming rate. Prison conditions are horrifying; the Cuban government does not allow monitoring by the Red Cross and international human rights organizations. See a recent report on deaths and disappearances under Raul Castro’s rule at:

Eusebio Peñalver was locked up for 28 years, one more than Nelson Mandela.
