Senator Marco Rubio chided rapper Jay-Z Sunday over his recent trip to Cuba and favorable portrayal of guerrilla leader Che Guevara.
“I mean, first of all, I think Jay-Z needs to get informed. One of his heroes is Che Guevara. Che Guevara was a racist,” Rubio said on ABC News’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos.” “Che Guevara was a racist that wrote extensively about the superiority of white Europeans over people of African descent, so he should inform himself on the guy that he’s propping up.”
