Former Cuban President Fidel Castro, the iconic revolutionary leader, beloved by many and hated by few, has passed away Friday (11-25-2016) at the ripe old age of 90 in his homeland of Cuba.

The news of Fidel Castro’s death quickly spread like wildfire throughout the world, especially in America, where CNN/HLN news corporations and mostly white Cubans in Miami began their slander and celebration of the death of El Commandante Fidel Castro.

CNN/HLN news wasted no time in slandering the deceased Fidel Castro by inserting in every news cycle that Fidel was a dictator, executed 100 people of the former Batista dictatorship, imprisoned political dissidents, and allowed Cubans to immigrate en masse to America. Those news outlets purposefully don’t mention the pure evil that America has unleashed on the 11 million Cuban people over the last 130 years — from colonial seizure of Cuba, to the dictatorship of the Batista regime, to the Cuban embargo & occupation of Guantanamo Bay, to terrorist attacks in Cuba, and on to the present day.

Contrary to the reports on America’s mainstream media, social media, Black social media in particular, has been flooded with much adulation & commemoration of El Commandante Fidel Castro and has been in sync with the international praise from national leaders around the world.

Much of the poisonous slander against Fidel Castro comes from a country and people who hate to see a strong “Black man” like Fidel Castro stand up against global White Power, seize his country’s Independence from America like Haiti did to France, and then speak truth to power & principalities. And yes, Fidel Castro is a Black man! He told many people that he was a proud Black man, a descendant of Africa!

So while one-hundred mostly white Cubans were celebrating the death of Fidel Castro in two small city streets of Miami, displaying their savagery, the majority of white & black
Cubans living outside of Miami in places like Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York were in great mourning of the death of Fidel Castro.

Fidel Castro leaves a great legacy to Cuban people, Black people, and to the World’s Nations as one who fought & won his country’s Independence from america, gave the Cuban people one of the greatest free Educational & Health Care systems in the world, attempted to eliminate white supremacy (racism) from the Cuban culture, provided military assistance to African & South American Nations fighting for their countries’ lndependence from European colonial rule, provided assistance to Black Americans & South Africans to end racial segregation & apartheid political systems, sent educators & medical teams to South American countries, offered humanitarian aid to the people of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina that was refused by former President Bush, provided political asylum from American tyranny to Black American revolutionaries like Robert F. Williams, Huey P. Newton, and Assata Shakur, and contracted with Black American Farmers to buy $25 million in food to feed the Cuban people and support the discriminated Black Farmers that was then obstructed by former President

If one can tell a person by their works, then our beloved Black brother, and now our honored Ancestor Fidel Castro, has put in the righteous work and is now entering the promised land among the company of giants. Fidel Castro’s name & legacy will live on for 300 years, while his haters & detractors won’t occupy so much as a blot of ink on the pages of history.

Viva Fidel Castro! Viva Cuba! Viva la Revolucion!
