Hola Carlos,

Seguro que te has dado cuenta (se ha hablado de esto aqui hace pocos dias)
que Marx habia escrito algunos comentarios "off the record" (en cartas
personales) que eran homofobos y racistas.

[As I'm sure you've noticed (it was discussed here recently), Marx wrote
several things off the record (in personal letters) that were homophobic and
racist.]

Precisamente por ser "off the record", esos comentarios no vale nada. Para
buscar cuales fueron las verdaderas ideas politicas de Marx, leemos lo que
habia dicho "on the record", en sus pronunciamientos publicos.

[Precisely on account of being "off the record", those comments don't count.
To see what were the true political ideas of Marx, we read what he had to
say "on the record", in his public pronouncements.]

Por que no vayamos a extender la misma cortesia a Comandante Hugo Chavez
Frias?

[Why shouldn't we extend the same courtesy to Hugo Chavez, too?]

Saludos,

-Sayan.
