And then there is the brown beret issue. Pages 193 and 199 of the textbook show pictures of demonstrators wearing brown berets.

Guevara was a Marxist revolutionary leader and a major figure in the Cuba's communist revolution, revered by some as an inspiration to the downtrodden, but reviled by others as a ruthless killer who bragged about personally shooting defectors.
