Merits and demerits of Guevara’s role in the Cuban Revolution

Che Guevara was not at all a hero but he was rather mentally ill, states Daniel Mihai Popescu in his article entitled ‘Che Guevara, a Wrong Myth’ which he published on his blog two years ago.

Che Guevara was also a racist, states an Australian blogger on his blog ‘pethatesblog‘:

“For someone who is held up as the poster child for vague leftism around the world, it may be strange to learn that he was a dirty racist. I’m certain that none of the pinko lefties running around with Che Guevara t-shirts could justify this following description of the indigenous peoples in Cuzco in Peru, written by Che himself:

“The somewhat animal-like concept the indigenous people have of modesty and hygiene means that irrespective of gender or age they do their business by the roadside, the women cleaning themselves with their skirts, the men not bothering at all, and then carry on as before. The underskirts of Indian women who have kids are literally warehouses of excrement, a consequence of the way they wipe the rascals every time one of them passes wind.

As if accusing indigenous people of smelling worse than cow shit wasn’t bad enough (…), Che later on insists that they also have sex with the pink river dolphins in the Ucayali river in Peru.
Che doesn’t just reserve his racism for the indigenous peoples of South America, the following comparison of Blacks and Europeans (by which he means Portuguese in this context) is…well…enlightening.

“The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing… 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.”
