I found the July 8 article 3:05 p.m.? Time for ‘cafecito’ charming until I came to the final paragraph.
I’m a fourth generation Floridian of Cuban and Irish ancestors. And yet they, as I, were first and foremost Americans. My father, who spoke Spanish, helped many Cubans who came to Miami in the ’60s with paperwork needed to complete the immigration process.
I’m dismayed by those who, having reaped the benefits of being American, identify themselves as something else.
I’m certain that Miami is still a city in Florida and that Florida is still one of the 50 states of the United States of America. If you were born here, you are an American, and if you are of Cuban descent, a Cuban American from Miami.
