well, what does that prove except that the "left" is progressive, constantly striving to improve themselves and society, to stamp out prejudice and
inequality, where ever it is. doesn't seem like a negative trait to me.
actually, if you read the book, or even a synopses, you'ld know that the point of the book is the change of beliefs he experiences over the coarse of
in later life, che spent time in the congo, risking his life for the freedom of black people. even if you're right, and he remained a racist, he was
still willing to risk his life for the sake of the freedom of those he hated. sounds admirable.
i can't see how "poetic justice" would really be an appropriate term. seems to me, if he did have racist beliefs, he sums up the ideal of "the
left". freedom before prejudice.
