“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.”
Obviously this is a quote that shows his idea: European white people are superior to the Black Africans. There is no other way of interpretation this quote.
There is also another quote from his book ‘the motorcicle diaries’ that he says Mexicans are lazy Indians.
“During the Cuban guerrilla campaign, Che’s girlfriend (for all intents and purposes) for the first half of 1958 was Zoila Rodríguez García, a black/mulatto woman.”
During slavery time in Brazil, it was very common the black slave women to give birth to mulato children, as their ‘owners’ used to also take advantage of them sexualy. The fact you sleep with a black person doesn’t make you a not racist person.
“In 1959, Che pushed for racially integrating the schools and universities in Cuba, years before they were racially integrated in the southern United States. “
Try to push for racially integrating school show that you think blacks are not smart enough to enter school by their own effort. This sort of mentality is offensive to any black person. I believe we are all the same and we can reach whatever we want if we try hard enough. This sort of mentality is typical from ‘rich kids’ such as Che Guevara, that got born in a rich family and see poor people and black people as less capable and in need of help and support from ‘superior beings’ like themselves.
I came from a very poor family. My grandmother and grandfather used to walk 20 kilometres to reach a farm where she would work 8 hours under the burning sun and earn little money. After a lot of struggle, they moved to Sao Paulo with absolutely nothing. Sao Paulo is a capitalist city in Brazil with a large industry, where my grandma found a job as maid and my grandpa in a factory, and managed to save money and buy a piece of land and build their house. Beside working they had nine children, which all survived and lived well. That’s the power a poor person that never went to school has: work in hard conditions, start from zero, raise children and never give up. People like my grandparents have much more power to conquest things than anarchists freaks with superiority complex like Che Guevara. Poor people, black people, all people only need opportunities only and a govern that doesn’t explore them, like the Cuban government that remove 70% of Cubans salary in income taxes. Che Guevara thought he was superior – a hero! – and was ‘saving’ other people while wearing Rolex watches… he actually put all Cuban people in a slavery system which thousands of them end up dying in open sea trying to scape from it.
