As this is a review of Cuban-American blogs, I do not usually concern myself with blogs written by Anglos for the expressed purpose of heaping scorn on Cubans and Hispanics in general. Perhaps I should. The most prominent of these blogs is (or was) White Dade. I only learned of its existence at its funeral. The author was obliged to close his blog when he was "outed" as a racist by his college newspaper. Before the prospect of losing his sinecure as a grad-student-cum-instructor, he put away his bedsheet and closed his blog. Well, almost. He has already had more farewells than Maria Callas. He can't seem to let go of his fixation and keeps revisiting it "for one last time" often. Ultimately, I believe he will give up the sinecure; he seems far more vested in spreading racial and ethnic division in Dade County, which is like taking coal to Newcastle.
One of White Dade's last posts was written as HBC (Hot Blonde Chick). In it he/she complains endlessly about the unwanted attentions of short Hispanic men at local bars, where at 6'2" he/she towers over everybody. White Dade seems particularly fixated with the size of Hispanic men's penises, which he believes to be smaller than the endowments of white men. (Where is that study?) HBC's "multiple references to Hispanic guys's dick sizes," which White Dade supposedly had to tone down, bespeaks more than a casual acquaintance. Repulsed by Hispanic men, HBC nonetheless seems to be as fixated on their dicks as the schoolmarms and typists who used to go on week-ends to Havana before the Revolution rebuckled their chastity belts.
I always thought that Freud was an imposter, a self-deluded imposter, but an imposter nonetheless. Now I am not so sure anymore. Perhaps everything can ultimately be reduced to and interpreted in the light of penis envy. Where Freud appears to have gone wrong is in attributing this psychosis to women.
And don't miss this one:
DIALOGUE WITH WHITE DADE:
White Dade said...
In order to properly rip me, you must first be accurate.
I quit the blog long before the paper said anything about me becasue I was MOVING. As in it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to talk about life as a White guy in Miami when you do not, in fact, live in Miami. That and all my good ideas were being used up on my PAID writing job, which I got as a result of my work on White Dade.
Second, HBC is, in fact, a female friend of mine who wrote that post. If you had any sense of perception of literary style it would be faily obvious form the outset that that piece was written by someone else. Even Alex over on SOTP said it was the one post he really didn't like, most likely because it was not written by me.
If you don't like me, fine. but get your facts straight first. I hate nothing more than criticism that is completely inaccurate.

I only regret that I did not know about your blog before your late capitulation to political correctness. Not actually living in Dade County would not, I think, have been an encumbrance to you; principles, especially warped ones, remain in place even when one does not.
Your "good ideas" were being used up elsewhere, you say? So you have only a limited quantity at your disposal and must market those as profitably as you can?
What is this other renumerative gig of yours? Editor of the New Klan Klugle? Well, a PAID writing job is a PAID writing job.
It is precisely because I can read someone's style as if it were his fingerprints that I can assert definitively that HBC is your alter ego.
Although I just met you, I will certainly miss you; and more sincerely, I think, than those who actually like you. Oh, what a target you would have provided! No need to stuff bogeymen with you around.
I wish you succeess and distance in all your future endeavors. Wherever you go in life I am sure that your writings will always be informed by that little racist voice speaking from inside you.

Manny My Man -
There is plenty in the archives I'm sure oyu could misinterpret and rip. Have fun with that.
HBC is not me. I assure you. I actually forwarded your comments to her and she told me her fixation is pretty much on dick in general, and she does not discriminate on the basis of color, jsut size. Why she prefers black men, apparently. Hispanics, no. But blacks, yes.
90 seconds of research will have you finding my paid wiritngs.I am no more PC than I used to be, I just don't have much to rant about since Gainesvilel operates liek America and Miami does not.
And please, tell me one place in Miami you can avoid Cuban culture. Even in Pinecrest and Palmetto Bay, perhaps the only Ameircan parts left in Miami, you get cashiers and deli workers who dont' speak English.
Whatever, Manny. I respect your right to be wrong. I will let you have the last word. Thank you, and good luck to you and your organization.

I'm afraid I require a living entity for purposes of vivisection; a corpse will not do. You have murdered your precious child, or, rather, sacrificed it on the altar of political correctness. Your convictions were not stronger than your quest for respectabilty. This you would never have achieved with the baggage of your convictions, so you have tossed those aside for the moment while you wait for fortune to annoint you and carry you beyond the limits of Gainsville, FL. Talk of living in a cultural ghetto, or, rather vacuum. How desperately you must miss Miami and its rich tapestry of cultures! If you are forlorn in Gainsville you can always visit the nearest trailer park, which is certain to be within walking distance. There you will find a cosmopolitan slice of the Old South as yet unreconstructed. Perhaps you will be able to find solace there. Despite what you think, you are not alone quite yet.
If seeing the faces or hearing the voices of Hispanics annoys you, however, then, I'm afraid, there is no escape for you,

Like most Anglos whose acquaintance with Hispanics never proceeds beyond the bagboy at the supermarket (who is never Cuban), you cannot tell Hispanics apart and confuse Mexicans and Central Americans for Cubans. Yes, Mexicans and Central Americans are shorter in height than other Hispanics because of their indigenous heritage. Cubans, who are either white, black or some admixture threof, are not short; and those raised in this country, with the right nutrition, are rarely if ever short. The height of Cuban-Americans is comparable to that of Anglo-Americans and that may be the only area where they are comparable. In terms of education and income, and, indeed, on all other indices of socio-economic development, Cuban-Americans lead Anglos. So if the flashy car (and money behind it) is what appeals to the [Ho]t [B]londe [C]hick, she is more likely to find it with Cuban-Americans than with, well, White Dade.
About HBC, she is demonstrably you; that part of you, which no male can confess, which fears the reason you always strike out with Cuban-American females or lose out to Cuban-American males is that Anglos have smaller dicks. Your way of compensating for this perceived deficiency is to create an imaginary female who attests that Hispanics have smaller dicks than whites though she claims never to have bedded one (preferring instead black men).
For real white women the first stop on the road to black men is usually brown men, and many never go any farther because they get from Hispanic men all that they want or can handle without proceeding farther down the racial divide, which in America means becoming a social pariah.
