Hip-hop artist Jay-Z has reportedly joined the boycott of Florida over the state's controversial "stand your ground" law.
We respect his concerns.
However, it seems particularly hypocritical for Jay-Z to promote a boycott of democratic Florida , but have no problem vacationing in totalitarian Cuba .
As we all know, Cuba's police-state practices a unilateral "stand your ground" on steroids -- meaning if you even think contrary to the Castro regime, they can beat you, imprison you and kill you.
But why let that impede a "salsa and mojito" tour -- courtesy of the Obama Administration's so called "people-to-people" trips.
Clearly, the deaths of Cuban democracy leaders Orlando Zapata Tamayo, Laura Pollan and Oswaldo Paya, mean nothing to Jay-Z.
Neither do the violent beatings and abuses against Cuba 's Ladies in White and Afro-Cuban democracy activists.
And remember Angel Yunier Remon?
The Cuban rapper know as "El Critico," who was in a prison cell (for his critical lyrics) during Jay-Z's April vacation to Havana ?
He's still there, no charges filed, no trial, nothing.
But why let any of this stop a good party in Havana (courtesy of the Castro regime).
