Che Guevara’s Racism
DOUBLETHINK ONLINE via Real Clear History ^ | April 29, 2013 | by Joseph Hammond

Posted on 05/04/2013 3:24:12 PM PDT by Brad from Tennessee

When Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., chastised Jay-Z and Beyonce in a TV interview for their recent trip to Cuba, he especially criticized Jay-Z for his adoration of Che Guevara.

“I think Jay-Z needs to get informed,” Rubio said. “One of his heroes is Che Guevara. Che Guevara was a racist. Che Guevara was a racist that wrote extensively about the superiority of white Europeans over people of African descent, so he should inform himself [about] the guy that he’s propping up.”

Jay-Z, Carlos Santana, and Johnny Depp — who have all been spotted in Guevara t-shirts in the last decade — have, as Rubio correctly noted, largely ignored the issue. Yet, some leftist defenders of Guevara do occasionally deal with this troubling issue. A blogger named Faraji Toure at “Afro-Punk” a notes a troubling passage from Guevara’s 1952 diary:

“The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing, have seen their territory invaded by a new kind of slave: the Portuguese.”

And: “The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving, which has pursued him as far as this corner of America and drives him to advance himself, even independently of his own individual aspirations.”

You have to understand, it doesn’t matter that Che was a racist, because he is their kind of racist! The kind of racist that the uninformed, liberal, or just plain ignorant like to call a hero. You know like abortionists.

A must-read for anyone who wants to know the true history of the Cuban revolution.

Fidel's henchman was a fascist, pure and simple.

JayZ and Beyonce can’t see past their noses. They think Che was only racist against whites. These people are incredibly stupid in knowledge. Always selective in their thoughts. Too bad their brains if they have any never function.

They have brains...good brains. But they don't use them to study history and historical facts because (1) studying in hard work...and they don't like hard, disciplined work and (2) hard work and history are for Whitey...not playas.

Che’s most memorable trait was as a psychopath.

Mass murderer (serial killer/terrorist) *and racist? Should we go for the trifecta and add "homophobe"? They say that even when not in the jungle killing innocent civilians he *never* bathed and stunk to high heavens.Pretty fitting,I'd say,for one of the most despicable psychopaths of the 20th Century.

Add to that the fact that he freely admitted that if it was up to him he would have fired the nukes that Cuba had at the US during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

A real swell fella!

Too bad that plenty of Americans don’t seem to know who on Earth Margaret Sanger was.

Kinda makes sense; since he was Argentinian, what did he care if Havana was reduced to a puddle of glass?

At least Vlad stopped the Muslim horde from destroying Europe for a few centuries.

So he had a good ‘point’ or two...he he he....

Other than the fact that he has an inexhaustible supply of government money, this is a good description of Obama.

It would even be stranger to see these people wearing this T-shirt.

Che, Fidel, and Raúl (the new moderate now running Cuba and trying to raise some cash)used to personally execute prisoners with their .45s while on morning walks together.

Not offing Fidel was the stupidest mistake Batista ever made. Fidel ... speaking of racism ... has consciously made Cuba much more Afro-Cuban than it was by turning a great number of the European-based population into refugees and a vigorous "affirmative action" style program to put Afro-Cubans into top jobs, especially in the military and giving them collectivized properties. The problems Eastern Europe has had returning to private property and individual liberty will be dwarfed by the return to "normalcy" of Cuba. That's if the CHICOM ever let's it happen.

Was in Cuba on a sports mission trip this summer, I was really surprised at the level of racism against the darker skinned Cubans.

Vlad, along with two neighboring Christian Kings-an Albanian and a Serbian- that I can’t recall, are highly underrated for their roles as gatekeepers for the West during that century. Was Vlad brutal? Yup. Were the Turks just as brutal? Yup. He fought fire with fire.

Anyone ever watch the movie “Shooter” with Mark Wahlberg? When he rescues nick memphis, the fbi guy, from the black ops guys, ‘nick’ is wearing a che tee shirt.
If you watched the movie and never noticed, check it out. Nothing like not so subliminal mesages.

Similarly, I find it amazing the number of American blacks who embrace Islam. There is an historical reason why the Arabic word for the color black is also the word for slave, and in the core Islamic areas not much has changed. Saudi Arabia still had formal slavery until about 1960.

Historical ignorance is rampant.

Call him a gay basher, it is more accurate.

He liked killing homosexuals, he didn't fear them.

Jay Z is an example of how complete idiots can make hundreds of millions of dollars in the USA while geniuses and heroes die in poverty.

Describes 99% of leftists. It's why they loved Che and why they defend Trayvon.

Intelligent scientists can’t be heroes because they make idiot leftists feel less than grand about their own brains...or lack thereof.
