Fidel Castro has come out of hiding to make some statements criticizing McCain and praising Barack Obama.

Castro made a statement on the website Cubadebate on Saturday, “Profound racism exists in the United States,”  as he weighed in on the US presidential race ahead of the November 4 election.

“Millions of whites cannot reconcile in their minds with the idea that a black man with his wife and children would move into the White House, which is called just like that — White,”

Castro said it was a “pure miracle” that  the Barack Obama, who became the first black politician to win the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, had not been assassinated thus far.

Castro said that Obama “has the habit of looking at his opponent with serenity and laughing at his rhetorical attacks.”

Castro criticized John McCain and Sarah Palin bringing up McCain’s poor grades and saying Palin “knew nothing at all about anything.”
