Che Guevara

I do wonder about guys who have this fellow on their t-shirts.

Here’s the guy who helped turn the hemisphere’s party capital into a vast forced labor and prison camp – into the place with the highest (youth) emigration and suicide rate in the hemisphere, probably in the world. In 1961 Che even established a special concentration camp at Guanacahibes in extreme Western Cuba for “delinquents.” This “delinquency” involved drinking, vagrancy, disrespect for authorities, laziness and playing loud music.

So, there’s a whole lot of people out there wearing a t-shirt showing the image of a guy who would, if he saw them, put them into a forced labour camp.

Yes, I have laughed at someone doing this. Couldn’t help myself.
