Race, Culture, and Politics in the Early Republic
This chapter discusses the editorial that ran on the polemical Havana daily La Lucha, which was derisively titled “Changui Politico.” The piece ridiculed ranking Republican Party activists in the capital busily campaigning for the island's first-ever general elections, to be held later that year in December. Havana's Republican Party, representing white and some black Liberation Army leaders and their supporters, was one of several, disparate, Republican Party organizations dotting the island and competing against each other for political office. Rather than campaign nationally, as one, united Republican Party, these early party organizations were locked in contentious battle with one another, each founded under the aegis of a different, locally or regionally powerful cacique or political boss.
