“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and drink” (Ernesto Guevara)
The superstar black couple’s visit coincides with a wave of racist repression by Cuba’s lily-white rulers. Cuba’s black human-rights activists are being beaten, arrested and tortured at a rate that sets a ten year record for racist torture and terror in the Castro family fiefdom, which is really saying something.
Heartbreakingly, as mentioned above, many of these Cuban human-rights activists admire the U.S. civil rights movement, unaware that the current standard-bearers of this movement—far from championing their cause—actually champion their torturers.
“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and drink, the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent…The negro has maintained his racial purity by his well known habit of avoiding baths.” Ernesto Guevara
