"There is no doubt that Mexicans, filled with dignity, willingness and ability to work, are doing jobs that not even blacks want to do there in the United States.”--Mexican President Vicente Fox
In answer to La Shawn, of course President Fox is a racist! Aside from the statement being the truth when not considered within its context, people from other countries feel much freer to make racist statements about perceived inferior groups than do Americans. And unlike most Americans, the rest of the world refuses to feel guilty about its racism. They’d rather beat up on America for it. That’s one of the many dirty little secrets of the world. Don’t believe me? Look at these statements found on a Chinese web forum regarding Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice:
"How come the United States selects a female chimpanzee as Secretary of State?"There was not one bit of uproar about the “uncivilized” Chinese and their “horrid racism,” not to mention their ill manners. Why not? Because the Chinese wouldn’t give a hairy fig, that’s why. And neither does the Mexican President, nor do countless other world leaders and officials that let racism flow freely from their lips. As a matter of fact, President Fox's remark was mild in comparison to all too many others, especially when the subject is Jews.
"This black woman thinks rather a lot of herself."
"She's so ugly she's losing face. Even a dog would be put off its dinner while she's being fed."
By the way, President Fox wants his country’s “inferiors,” that is, those Mexicans of more Indian heritage, to migrate to this country. Why do you think his government encourages illegal emigration? Better than what many other leaders have done with their “inferiors,” don’t you think?
