No less of an authority than Time Magazine says that Richard Blanco is the new face of Cubans in America. Exit polls suggested that more than half of the Cuban-American population in Florida voted for Obama, which helped him earn Florida in the re-election. In addition, Blanco is openly gay — a novel stance for a Cuban-American to take, as in the past, Cubans — and Cuban-Americans — weren’t known for their acceptance of homosexuality.
