400 years ago, our ancestors were stolen from Africa and endured months chained head to toe in the shithole of slave ships. Today, we are commandeering a luxury cruise line and headlining the on-board entertainment for our inaugural Humanity First Cruise to Cuba.
Donald Trump's seething hatred of black and brown people has brought White Nationalism to the forefront of the Republican Party's platform. Trump and his White Nationalist Republican cronies believe all non-white majority countries are “shitholes”.
He has consistently and loudly used dehumanizing language to demonize immigrants who want a better life for their families. Since the latter half of the 20th century, the United States has placed a trade embargo on Cuba, this has plunged a large percentage of the Cuban population into poverty.
The Obama administration began loosening some of the restrictions—leading us to believe a detente was imminent. The election of Donald Trump destroyed that hope. We believe that Americans and Cubans should enjoy the ability to engage in trade and visit each other's country.
We want to help Cuba gain economic freedom and rebuild their economy through our shared tourism model.
On the Humanity First Cruise you will meet the architects of Tipnation.NYC and the TIP Political Party—as well as our preferred progressive candidates. You will also have the opportunity to strategize with other like-minded progressives in our attempt to modernize the Democratic Party. We are in the midst of a war—a war to save the very soul of the United States of America.
Since the days of the Monroe Doctrine, the United States has interfered with the inner workings of various countries in the Western Hemisphere. TIP wants to stop US bullying and, instead, use tourism to help Cubans improve their economy and quality of life.
