A Comrade’s Tribute to Fidel Castro on His 95th Birthday

But when we take the measure of a human being who has passed on (and therefore no longer has an opportunity to grow, or be held accountable) we must add up the good, the bad, and the in-between.

His contributions and the contributions of the Cuban people in the fight against colonialism, apartheid, and imperialism in Africa are almost enough to cement his legacy in and of themselves. There’s a reason why he took the time to meet with Malcolm X when he came to Harlem, and why Nelson Mandela visited Cuba and Castro shortly after his release from prison.
