Remember when Kanye West made the Confederate battle Flag "his" Flag?
#37 to #1 - superwheels (02/24/2014) [-]
He said in an interview that he was trying to re-appropriate the confederate flag the same way black people re-appropriated the word " ****** ".

It's ignorant for him to think he could single-handedly redefine a symbol like that, but I think it's pretty ingenious for him to attempt it when most other rappers can barely write original lyrics.

people here just jump on the hate bandwagon and associate him with other rappers. He does dumb things sometimes, but he's a pretty intelligent person.

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.

The thing is he went to Africa to start a revolution and has seen that he can't command the nigros for **** .

>The U.S. didn't want to ally with socialists at all even if they weren't hostile because that would signal to other countries and our own people that we approve of socialism.

Look, I have a personal reason to hate communists, so I've got kind of a bias here, but this was an undeniable fact. As long as Fidel kept Cuba socialist, we didn't care what he thought of us; We just wanted to get rid of communism.

Thank you for your input. I will remember this the next time I feel like posting a comment, that while some people enjoy learning things from a new perspective, endospore doesn't, and therefore I should never post a comment similar to this one ever again.
#24 to #23 - endospore (02/24/2014) [-]
I grew up in an upper middle class white suburb in the nineties. Half of my class did reports on Che Guevara whenever given the opportunity. It's become so cliched to point out how hypocritical it is to wear Che Guevara t-shirts to the point where you sound like you're just regurgitating a learned speech whenever someone mentions that Che Guevara was actually not quite a good guy, and now you're taking it one step further by making pointing out the cliche become a cliche.
#26 to #24 - comradewinter (02/24/2014) [-]
That's interesting, but unfortunately the world doesn't revolve around you at all. I never learned about Che Guevara as a person in school, just that he was central in the Cuban Revolution, and I'm sure very few schools actually put any focus on him, other than slander. So whatever applies to you, will likely not be the case for others. Like I said, some people might enjoy seeing things from another light, while others shut it out as they are clearly aware they know everything.

This is the internet. According to demographic polls, well over half of us grew up in the nineties. I would be shocked if anywhere less than half of this site could give a complete report of Che Guevara from memory.
#29 to #27 - comradewinter (02/24/2014) [-]
According to demographics, about half of the population here is from the US, the rest from places that couldn't give two ***** about Guevara and thus never learned anything about him as a person. The demographics posted here earlier also show that more than half of the people here are 16-20, neither of which could write a report in the 90's. Remember that people who went to school and wrote reports in the 90's would be around 15 at the time, so they would be born in the early-mid 80's to qualify. This makes you 29-34 years old, and I really doubt "well over half" of this site is that old, even if I didn't pay much attention to the demographics. It's a difference between growing up in the 90's and being born in the 90's.

So no, you growing up in the 90's in the US is not a very good example of a typical FJ user.

He did a lot of bad stuff which outweighs the good stuff he might've done.
#54 to #52 - comradewinter (02/24/2014) [-]
He did a lot of bad stuff, but most of it never actually happened. That was my point. Some people like to spread that he started a black genocide, shot people who looked at him in a funny way and so on. Most of the bad stuff he did, he did to people who were pretty bad themselves, before the revolution.

Even economist agree that the 20th century was the worlds greatest economic experiment, where most forms existed at once on a large scale.
The result was communism does not work economically. You still need a free market.

I don't care much for arguing policies but economics is the only place where you can argue facts without peoples morality deciding what government is best.

my russian friend told me that just before Lenin came to power, the russians were already in a revolution and practicing a form of communism that allowed market power

if Vladimir had left it alone russia would have been greater that it was

I'll have to look into that, but communism had just started in many other countries during that time as well.

one thing that could be said...look at china

theyre like "hey look we're so communist, and see how america owes part of its economy to us"
User avatar #142 to #140 - xxbandwagonxx (02/24/2014) [-]
China's not even an exception they're proving that the free market works better than a communist market. The reason why they're doing so well is that they're experiencing their version of industrial revolution.
This is a time when the government will look away from its economic sector and allow it to prosper before it either starts regulating it or gets regulated by it.

A countries government and economy exist as two separate entities, both can be communist but they don't have to be.
User avatar #144 to #142 - konradkurze (02/24/2014) [-]
well theres like 2 dozen versions of 'communism', just the smarter ones allow the market open enough for the country to prosper without it being all about greed like democratic systems are

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.

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

Does "irregardless" mean the same as "regardless" or "regarding"? I am honestly curious to what people mean when they say this.

(Not stealth- grammar nazi, just wondering)
User avatar #127 to #59 - bodasion (02/24/2014) [-]
"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.

It has to go with the being "indolent and lazy". The point about the "frivolities" was that it was **** they couldn't afford. Like $600 shoes when you live in a government issued apartment.
