Florida Congressmen Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart sent a joint letter to the U.S. Treasury Department officials responsible for policing the embargo with Cuba to demand to be told who approved Shawn “Jay-Z” and Beyoncé Knowles Carter’s travel and for what purpose.

“Do you care that the Jay-Zs have taken the capital you have given them and funded a communist oppressive regime?” Republican actress Stacey Dash tweeted.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s visit to Cuba illustrates the ability to transform world brands beyond the scope of the perspectives of African Americans living in a free society The resulting attacks come from Republicans and individuals who would hope to deter Beyoncé and Jay-Z from moving freely around the world. Never was their trip an endorsement. The subsequent accusations are an invasion of their privacy used by politicians to forge their relationships for reducing the freedom of African Americans to a limited scope. If their efforts were to be ambassadors, to deal with human and civil rights at a later date, then the attacks are unwarranted. But if it was to vacation and celebrate their union of five years, then the attention and the attacks are still unwarranted.

    It is truly sad how b-list actress Stacy Dash
    allows herself to be used by the nefarious Republican party.
