You’re wrong. And salty. Sit down.
Aside from the fact that the U.S. Treasury Department officially tried to silence critics by confirming that the two lovebirds received their license to travel from our own goverment, dissent continues to grow from the right side and even some pissed off Cuban-Americans.
But what’s the big hoopla about visiting Cuba anyway? According to the U.S. Treasury, the half-a-century-long U.S. trade embargo discourages travel to the communist country because “U.S. dollars spent on Cuban tourism directly fund the machinery of oppression that brutally repressed the Cuban people.”
Interesting. Seems that our free country is oppressing by restricting travel to places just because they don’t like their government policies.
You just had an aha! moment, didn’t you?
Basically, the embargo is a silly piece of legislation that should have been lifted years ago. We don’t even do that for North Korea! And you know how much trouble we’ve been having with them.
In any case, I dug up some pretty exclusive evidence that proves this trip was not just to kick it. It was an anniversary with a grueling schedule for the two to learn all about Cuban academics and culture.
No, really…it was! See below.
First of all, because the U.S. Treasury Department SAID SO! And because Jay-Z wouldn’t be rockin’ a fedora if he wasn’t committed to complete cultural immersion.
Because the couple watched these fans/dancers perform traditional Cuban moves…even though we’re sure Beyonce gave them some pointers, being the perfectionist she is.
Because Beyonce visited a local school and got her learn on and picked up a few pointers about how to tie a red scarf around her neck.
One word. Salsa.
Because the lovebirds learned how to appreciate authentic Cuban cuisine.
More proof? Beyonce had to document her learning experience to share on her blog. Because she’s generous like that!
The singer learned how to take a perfect Cuban selfie.
And how to speak the language while Mama Tina watched on.
And of course, how to throw an impeccable Cuban deuce.
And lastly, because Jay-Z was there to learn the intricate art of rolling a perfect cigar. Which is like, super important to Cuban culture. This, my friends, was not for leisure.
So there you have it!
Oh…and from King Bey herself…
“Any Questions?” Nope, we didn’t think so.
