I was at the mall over the weekend and saw a young couple wearing matching Che Guevara t-shirts. I hesitated for a moment, but decided to ask them why they idolized this man…here was the woman’s response, “he is a symbol for all Latinos that we should fight for our rights and freedoms…and anyone who is oppressed can make a difference”. I was irritated at her response but admired her passion for a man she knew nothing about. The fact is that Che Guevara was not oppressed or poor. He was a medical doctor, having originally trained to become a doctor at the University of Buenos Aires.
