    I have to disagree with you. As an Argentinian living in the US, I have always seen and experienced, first hand, the fascism you so easily dismiss. YOu must be one of the few unadulterated white immigrants from, what... Germany? who is in denial about his own country's bigotry.

    Response to this comment:
    Afro Argentinos

    I hope people see this movie in context with the political reality, rather than this documentary serving as another ridiculous and insulting attempt to make Argentina look like a nation of fascists. What I mean is that the life and story of this minsicule minority of Cape Verdean black immigrants should be seen as just that: the history and stuggle of an immigrant group in Argentina, as Argentina is a country of immigrant groups all of whom struggled because the immigrant throughout recent history has always been an alienated underclass whether they were white or black. Menem, by the way, is an extremely unpopular and loathed ex-president among Argentines. White Argentines are oppressed in general just as the rest of Latin Americans, their whiteness does not spare them from much. Arabs and Afghans are caucasian too, you know. The country was a homeland of socialists and guerillas (which is why it is always in the interest of the corporate media to paint Argentina as fascist and politcally incorrect) and the US presence was one of the worst bastions of butchery and evil in history, this applied to Argentines who were tortured for their beliefs and ideals, not in any way as much to specifically Afro-Argentines.
