From our Bureau of Highly Insulting Monuments to Apartheid
Murderous Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and South Africa’s Nelson Mandela were very close friends.
Their mutual admiration, however, has never bothered the vast majority of people who view Mandela as some kind of saint.
Well, Mildred, that mutual admiration has now been memorialized in Havana by a small bust of Mandela that sits on a pedestal in the new Park of African Heroes, in the suburb of Playa, a very nice seaside enclave populated by white oligarchs and white Castrophiliac ass-kissers.
Good luck finding any Afro-Cubans in that neighborhood. Apartheid is still alive and thriving in Castrogonia, but, of course, no one gives a hoot about it.
So, add one more item to the long list of thinly-veiled insults the Castro regime hurls at black Cubans and Africans everywhere.
That park features a vaguely fascist sculpture with a tall brown column, but it would be far more appropriate for it to have a colossal statue of a white middle finger pointing skyward.
Since such a statue already exists at the entrance to the stock exchange in Milan, Italy, perhaps one of Cuba’s many starving artists should be commissioned to copy it, so it could be mounted on that quasi-fascist pillar….Come to think of it, that pillar seems to have been designed to mimic that vulgar gesture, or perhaps even as a perch for that Milanese sculpture…
Yeah… imagine that hand from Milan atop that pillar, its offending finger towering above the statues of all the African dupes and dictators who’ve been courted and secretly mocked by Castro, Inc…
