Dominican YouTuber travels to Cuba and is shocked by the social reality

Recently, the Dominican YouTuber Pablo José Rodríguez, known as Capricorn TV, visited Cuba and was very impressed by the critical economic and social situation the island is going through.

During his stay there, he toured an extremely poor neighborhood located in the province of Santiago de Cuba, where he saw firsthand the disparities affecting its residents.

Amid a social scenario marked by the rise of crime, the influencer learned about the weapons used by the people of this area, consisting of handmade balls, which allow them to protect themselves against any attack or aggression.

Regarding this, a man from Santiago told Capricorn TV: “Everyone here is fighting or being beaten,” while another added: “If they don’t respect me, I will pick them up and beat them.”

The appalling living conditions of the residents of the aforementioned neighborhood are one of the issues that affect the youth the most, which includes the deplorable condition of most of the houses they live in.

In this way, the creator of the content regrets the lack of economic resources and views of the people of Santiago who belong to that community and the environment of violence in which they thrive, saying, “Maybe there are different opportunities that you don’t have. In the end, without money or anything, this neighborhood becomes a concrete jungle where the strongest survive, the strongest fight, the one who holds a knife, and if you don’t kill, they will kill you. That’s the reality.”.

Likewise, he points out the difference that exists between living without luxury and living, pointing out that the limitations of a country to cover the basic material needs of its citizens inevitably influence their social behavior.

Regarding this, he said: «Crying because your dad didn’t buy you the latest iPhone is not the same as crying to your father because they don’t have food. Before condemning an action, let’s prevent it first. The country that has no chance is hell for those born in the wrong place.

This experience led the Dominican to describe the island as a prison, indicating The Sheol of Cuba. The largest prison in the world.
