It's not racist if a non-white American says it, right?
"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, May 13, 2005.
Had any white American politician (or black Republican) said that, the MSM would be swarming.
But hey, it's just Vicente Fox.
Sigh. Racism is always stupid, and always wrong -- when the heck will the double standard stop?
My maternal grandmother lived in a predominantly minority neighborhood -- largely black and hispanic. She taught me from an early age to judge people on their actions, not their skin color. I wish others would do the same.
UPDATE: It appears Vicente Fox is earning some well-deserved criticism for his stupidity.
