pp. 165-6: Batista grabbed power in a (bloodless) coup in 1952, but in 1940 he had been elected president in elections considered scrupulously honest by U.S. observers. So whatever racial barriers existed in Cuba at the time did not prevent a country that was 71 percent white from voting in a black president…
Today, Cuba’s jail population is 85 percent black. The regime Che Guevara cofounded holds the distinction of having incarcerated the longest-serving black political prisoner of the twentieth century, Eusebio Peñalver, who was holed up and tortured in Castro’s jails longer than Nelson Mandela languished in South Africa’s.
Peñalver was bloodied in his fight with communism but unbowed for thirty years in its dungeons. “N****r!” taunted his jailers. “Monkey! We pulled you down from the trees and cut off your tail!” snickered Castro’s goons as they threw him in solitary confinement.
p 167-8, 172, 175: “When we were training in Mexico before landing in Cuba,” recalls Miguel Sanchez, who did much of the training, “Che delighted in belittling the Cuban black guerrilla named Juan Almeida. He always sneered at him as ‘el Negrito.’…Che soon found other targets for his innate racism, sneering at all ‘these illiterate Indians in Mexico.’”
“…I [Che] yelled at them that they were behaving like women…”
…In the mid-1970s, when Castro was serious about a client regime in Africa, he sent fifty thousand troops, hundreds of Soviet tanks, and squadrons of MIGs. They used saturation barrages of 122mm Soviet howitzer shells, hails of Katyusha rockets, and sarin gas against unarmed villages. Force at this level explained the Cuban “victory” in Angola, one unhampered by witch doctors and their dawa. (The Clark Amendment passed by Democrats in the U.S. Congress, which cut off all U.S. aid to Angolan anticommunists, also made things easier for Castro.)
