Ernesto “Che” Guevara, racist, anti-semite, homophobe, Marxist hero
Marxists. Do you know this man, who once said “Mexicans are a band of illiterate Indians”?
Here’s some stuff he wrote in his book The Motorcycle Diaries.
“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.”
“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.”
“The first person we hit on was the mayor, someone called Cohen; we had heard a lot about him, that he was Jewish as far as money was concerned but a good sort.”
“The episode upset us a little because the poor man, apart from being homosexual and a first-rate bore, had been very nice to us, giving us 10 soles each, bringing our total to 479 for me and 163 1/2 to Alberto.”
I don’t think I have to comment on any of this. It’s clear what kind of a man he was.
