How do you think history will portray Fidel Castro?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 6, 2007
“It depends on whose history you’re talking about. I think U.S. history will portray him as a ruthless dictator who didn’t care about his people. But it’s really a question of what is history and who is writing it.”
“I think that history often leans toward leaders’ negative qualities, but I think he should be portrayed as a freedom fighter.”
“I think he’s done a lot for Cuba. I think in their eyes, he’ll be seen as a good leader later on down the line.”
“I guess that depends on where you’re from. To be honest, I think I would have to learn more about his life and exactly what transpired involving him and U.S.-communist relations.”
