I am one of many Cuban Americans who support President Obama. Most of my friends, my parents and many in their generation also support him. We do so because we believe he stands for all Americans and his policies are right for our country.
Many of us are well aware of the fact that we were allowed to come to this wonderful country thanks to Democratic presidents. I am thankful to President Lyndon B. Johnson, who supported the Freedom Flights and allowed more than 260,000 Cubans to flee communist Cuba.
Perhaps Martin Pinilla, who wrote the Oct. 8 letter Obama not our favorite, only associates with other die-hard Cuban-American Republicans who often intimidate those with different views and are unwilling to engage in open intellectual dialogue. As a Cuban American, I have experienced that situation first-hand. He does not speak for all Cuban Americans.
