    After seeing Celia and Pedro, I was comfortable and secure in the fact that I was a Black Cuban. It was thru this pioneer that I reliquihsed alot of denial for latino ancestry, and ignorant minsomers such as, You are too dark to be Cuban or you speak English and not Spanish thus you are not Latino. So I have to say AZUCAAAAAAAA!!!! to Celia and to Pedro because they
    truly helped me out.

    That's cool Manasiac. I once heard a Latina say Celia Cruz wasn't Black... just dark. I was like: "Here, let me lend you my glasses". I can't say I'm a big Salsa fan, but you don't have to be to appreciate this woman's genius. She will be missed.
