A Cuban Hero for Black History Month

When during a 1959 press conference a Cuban black named Luis Pons asked Che Guevara, “what his Revolution would do for blacks?” Che sneered: “we’ll do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the Cuban revolution. By which I mean: NOTHING!”

Che was much too modest.....Eusebio Peñalver's incarceration and torture at the hands of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara’s Stalinist regime stretched to 29 years, surpassing Nelson Mandela’s record in time behind bars and probably doubling the horrors suffered by Mandela during this period. But have you ever heard of Eusebio Peñalver? He became a U.S. citizen and lived in Miami for almost 20 years and would have been a cinch for the media to track down. Ever see a CNN interview with him? Ever see him on 60 Minutes? Ever read about him in the New York Times? The Washington Post? The Boston Globe? Ever hear the NAACP or the Congressional Black Caucus mention him? This being Black History Month should we expect a special on him on NPR and the History Channel? Why do I bother asking? He was a victim of the Left’s premier pin-up boys…nuff said.

Entire intransigence here.

    Humberto, do you have a transcript of this full press conference, I'd be interested to read it?

  • Felixthe3rd

    I'd like to read it too. Not that I don't doubt it's just that society nowadays we need proof to refute these claims the liberals deem "crackpot rants". I'd say screw them, but unfortunatly that how they'll all collectively shut up.

    Anyways, yeah we should honor the blacks that are advocates and have contributed to freedom in Cuba.

  • It's all fully-documented in my books. The documentation passed under the magnifying glass and (knowing the horribly blasphemous nature of my book) was triple-checked by the entire legal dept. of the 2nd biggest publisher on earth--and passed muster. Those lawyers and editors are the only people I'm obligated to satisfy. If Im making stuff up--THEY get sued big-time, not me. So tell your pinko friends to buy my books and look it up for themselves.....better yet. Don't waste your time. They wont accept it unless Keith Olberman or Janeane Garafalo says it....

    "They wont accept it unless Keith Olberman or Janeane Garafalo says it...."

    Amigo Humberto,

    You just nailed it.

  • FreedomForCuba

    Humberto,

    The saddest part of it all is that today there are way too many people that don't want to hear or read the truth that you, Babalu and many other blogs about Cuba publish while they take everything published by the MSM and the opinion of the Hollywood idiots at face value.

  • Mr. Mojito

    Humberto Fontova, just to clarify - I don't doubt the authenticity of the Che passage - in fact I'd love to read the whole interview (hence why I asked if you knew where I could find the full thing).

  • Mr. Mojito

    Humberto, for instance I looked up the interview from your book - on pg 167

    http://books.google.com/books?id=Fdyxvw-xJIgC&pg=PA167&dq=Luis+Pons+Che+Guevara&cd=1#v=onepage&q=Luis%20Pons%20Che%20Guevara&f=false

    but there is no ref for the full thing.

    I believe Felix's point was that of the differing myths about Che, the "anti-apartheid" "fought in Africa with blacks" is one of the harder ones to attack against pinkos because the public Che (who denounced racism in the US against blacks at the U.N. for instance) was actually nothing like the behind the scenes arrogant Argentine racist who didn't like blacks or "illiterate indians", as you point out in your book. Thus, it is always helpful to show the Che-bot commies some first hand accounts of their "hero's" words - to fight the Castro propaganda.

  • baldwin

    Humberto you give those pinkos too little credit. Not only will they accept it, they will find a way to defend it. 'Oh, don't look at what Che said look at all the good he did.' No doubt Jesse and the crew will rally around their comrade. Che's affirmation of their liberal fantasies trumps all else.

  • No one should expect any kind of veracity from African American leaders. Just like the white dictator they adore, they've spent the last 45 + years ensuring the continued subjugation and servitude of the people they supposedly represent in order to maintain power and pad their bank accounts.

    They aren't worthy to clean Peñalver shoes.

    Here are Eusebio Peñalver and Dr. Orlando Bosch in October 2004.
