The testimony of 800,000 Cubans—representing a wide cross-section of Cuba’s society—indicates the irrelevance of Mr. Schechter’s impressions. These exiles chose to abandon their beloved homeland and move to a racist and strange country in order to avoid Communist oppression. Although they are paying a hard price for’ their individual liberty, their exodus—the largest politically-motivated exodus ever recorded in the history of the Western Hemisphere—does not reflect any signs of “political myopia.”
