Look up the quote, none of them are but speculations that he said it. They don't provide context, just toss it into a pot of communist-hating essays.

And to be fair, most of the atrocities that happened at Cuba are either made up or excaggerated to the max. It's no secret that the US took a load of action against the country, and other socialist nations in South America, just because they didn't like socialism. Castro respected the US, even wanted to become a baseball pro, and wanted to keep a good relationship with them and build a bridge between socialism and capitalism in a time where it was needed. But to no surprise, a failed invasion, numerous assassination attempts, and a trade embargo, eventually led to Castro forming an alliance with the Soviet Union to become untouchable, and that's when the downfall would begin.

The result was being alienated by the West, and even if hipsters are downright retarded for buying a Che Guevara shirt for 60$ to show how much they fight injustice with their iPads, he has been accused of doing a lot of things that have never been proven. I'm sure he had his own issues, and he's not the hero people make him out to be, however he's not a genocidal maniac either. He was a doctor who saw injustice in South America and wanted to fight it.

That being said, even Lincoln was racist, so anyone can really be. It's all about to which degree.

I hate when people compare entertainers to revolutionaries. Is that the minimum standard for what's grounds to entertain you? Che Guevarra?

Che wrote that quote in his diary as a youth who had just left an Argentinian white neighbourhood and just arrived in a Venezuelan slum. Most whites in Latin America were very racist at the time, so it is not surprising he would come out with such talk.

However, Only to someone completely uninformed, could Che (a man who fought in Africa with an all black army against white South African mercenaries of Apartheid) be seen as "racist" for a diary passage he wrote as a youth 15 years earlier.

tl;dr Quote was from young che who grew up in white surroundings, but he would later fight alongside black african guerrilas and work with other black men.

pic related, it's Che chillin with a bunch of Congolese revolutionaries.

Che wore a Rolex now priced at around 6,000. I would call that bling and a frivolity.

I mean sure we could call jay-z a " ****** " but look at the facts. He along with others made a record label worth millions of dollars, and when they dropped him he still made an even larger profit without rocafella. Irregardless of what people think when men all together start making large amounts of money it's four things they're guaranteed to spend it on clothes, jewelry, houses and pussy. Regardless of what you spend "your" money on, if you can make that same amount back you're far from any racial slur. Your a bread winner

"Irregardless" isn't actually a word with any meaning.

It means the same thing as "regardless," making the prefix in "irregardless" completely pointless. It's a colloquialism.

Jay is like Che Guevara in that they are both revolutionaries, in a way. Jay started a “revolution” in the rap world/pop culture, and Che, a noted revolutionary, was essential to the movement that overthrew Fulgencio Batista, a U.S. backed dictator in Cuba. Needless to say, Jay doesn’t share Che’s economic opinions; he’s clearly showing off his wealth by wearing “bling” (jewelry). The contradiction in the symbols shows the contradictions in Jay-Z’s character, which make him complex. Perhaps Jay is suggesting something about the duality of man. Jay would famously wear a shirt with Che on it during the making of his MTV Unplugged special, and had previously referred to himself on record as “Jay Guevara”: Criticism from a journalist about the chain/Che outfit was the impetus for this second verse.
