“The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing, have seen their territory invaded by a new kind of slave: the Portuguese.”
“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.”
"We're going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the revolution. By which I mean: nothing."
"The Negro is indolent and lazy, and spends his money on frivolities, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent."
"Mexicans are a band of illiterate Indians."
“Blind hate against the enemy creates a forceful impulse that cracks the boundaries of natural human limitations, transforming the soldier in an effective, selective and cold killing machine. A people without hate cannot triumph against the adversary.”
“A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate. We must create the pedagogy of the The Wall!” (The Wall is a reference to the wall where Che’s enemies stood before his firing squads.)
“What we affirm is that we must proceed along the path of liberation even if this costs millions of atomic victims.”
“If any person has a good word for the previous government that is good enough for me to have him shot.”
- Che Guevara
