In 1896 Winston Churchill wrote about the fear of the rise of black Cubans controlling the government or another island divided like Hispaniola with Haiti and the Dominican Republic
After Winston Churchill returned to England, after his expedition to Cuba, he wrote three pieces on Cuba for the Saturday Review, “The Revolt in Cuba,” and “The Intervention in Cuba” and (again) “The Revolt in Cuba,” published on February 15, March 7 and August 29, 1896.
Winston Churchill would much later serve as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955.

Enrique Dupuy de Lôme, Spanish ambassador to the United States wrote to U.S. Secretary of State, Richard Olney, in 1896 the following:

…In this revolution, the negro element has the most important part. Not only the principal leaders are colored men, but at least eight-tenths of their supporters. The black population of the Island forms a little more than one-third of the 1,600,000 Cubans, but they are strong and numerous in the Eastern part, and the result of the war, if the Island can be declared independent, will be a secession of the black element and a black Republic on the part of the island. The principal feature of the Revolution is a racial war.

The United States of America and Cuba
The Spanish–American War 1898

The result of the Spanish–American War was the 1898 Treaty of Paris, which allowed American control of Cuba, and ceded colonial authority over Puerto Rico, Guam and the Philippine islands from Spain.

Enrique Dupuy de Lôme, the Spanish ambassador to the United States, defamed U.S. President William McKinley and attacked McKinley’s policies in what is known as the De Lôme Letter. Cuban rebels intercepted the letter, and on February 9, 1898, the letter was published in U.S. newspapers. This helped contribute to the Spanish-American War which started April 25, 1898 and ended August 12, 1898.
