HISPANIC AMERICAN DIVERSITY 2 Hispanic American Diversity This is an overview of Hispanic American ethnic groups, family status, social, economic, religious, political, and linguistics of Cuban, Dominican, Mexican, and Puerto Rican Americans. Cubans family structure is similar to the American family culture. About 78% of all Cuban American households are two-parent households and eight percent of all Cuban Americans are married in today’s society. Cuban families are typically characterized as Male dominance families, over bearing parental control of the lives of their children, and nuclear family is just as important as the non-nuclear family. For Cuban Americans this is different the women in the family are the more dominant parent in the household. Cuban Americans socialized well all members of the community when they first immigrated to the United States. In recent years there has been much tension between the Cuban and African American communities. “Cubans are descendants of Spanish colonizers and of African slaves (Buffington, 2010).” Cuba’s economy is inadequate because the main export is sugar. Cuban Americans are well-known in almost every profession, in Miami Cubans account for the majority of business owners. Cuban Americans are well known for their work ethic and dedication to work and their business. Cuban Americans immigrated to the U.S. with zero assets and built valuable business for themselves that benefited the American economy. “Two-fifths of the Cuban population is Roman Catholic. Nearly half report no religious affiliation. Many of those who call themselves Catholics are also adherents of an Afro-Cuban religious tradition known as “ Santeria” (Buffington, 2010)”. Cuban Americans living in the U.S. are of Protestant denominations. The official language of Cubans is Spanish. Cuban Americans are political and mainly vote for the Republican Party in elections. Cubans are viewed in America to be a successful migrant group.
