I would not be surprised mate. But don't ask in this section, these lads will not allow a single negative comment about him or they will cry.

Poet would probably have a heart attack if this were true.

I recall Poet making light over the fact that Alexis Arguello supported and fought along side the contras.

Yes, being photographed sitting next to Castor is a definite, surefire sign you are indeed a diehard communist.


Who cares if he had communist sympathies anyway, I know a guy through boxing from former USSR who still considers himself a communist, and he's a good guy.

Max Schmelling was a German and photographed with Hitler. Was he a nazi?

Poet would care.He admires Joe Louis as a fighter and as a human being and yet despises anyone close to the left.So to see his hero as an apparent communist sympathizer,a fellow traveller is quite amusing.

Joe Louis showed up, found Castro's Cuba a place "where a Negro can go in the wintertime without discrimination."



My post wasn't just related to that link.
