A 1973 prediction from Fidel Castro

The Argentine paper Clarín recalls a cynical comment by Cuban leader Fidel Castro that turns out now to have been coincidentally prescient (Fidel Castro y una asombrosa predicción en 1973 23.07.2015:

"Estados Unidos vendrá a dialogar con nosotros cuando tenga un presidente negro y haya en el mundo un Papa latinoamericano".

("The United States will return to having a dialogue with us when they have a black President and there is an Latin American Pope in the world.")
