Oooops - the radio report of a Vicente Fox apology was wrong...

He really REFUSES to apologize for his racist remark about illegal Mexicans taking jobs that even blacks don't want to do.

Loser Vicente Fox

Is he telling the UK a different story than he's telling the US media outlets? What is going on, here? Why do I hear an apology all over the MSM in America but find a completely different attitude in The Guardian??

Hey, Mike! Remember you were wondering where Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were? Well! They have apparently made some statements now!!!

Here's an interesting little tidbit from the article:
"The Mexican government was expected to send a diplomatic letter to the United States on Monday protesting recent measures that include requiring states to verify that people who apply for a driver's license are in the country legally, making it harder for migrants to gain amnesty, and overriding environmental laws to build a barrier along the California border with Mexico."

The US is adopting 'anti-migrant' policies.

I wrote letters to media outlets a couple of years ago criticizing them for using the word 'migrant' to describe ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. Migrant sort of makes you think of The Dust Bowl, doesn't it? Not illegals zipping back and forth doing God knows what.

Huh. So now we hate migrants. And we hate them because we don't want to give illegals a drivers license - which is a priviledge BTW - not a right.

We hate poor, poor migrants because we want to build a wall on our border to control the avalanche of illegals crossing over every single day.

I'll say it again, 'Vicente Fox Kiss my Plaid American Ass!'

I learned in my PS/AFRO 201 class that racism was an invention of white people, and that the concept of race was inherently one of strata. In fact, several scholars believe that there is an inability for anyone other than whites to be racist.

Are you telling me that it's possible for people other than white people to be racist? No...I just can't believe that. That would mean that what their telling me isn't true. Who knows what else I've learned at Champaign that isn't true- Soviet Russia was an idyllic wonderland, the world would be better if everyone was gender-free, Karl Rove masterminded 9/11, etc.

My world is falling apart:-)

For real, Steven? For real, for real? That's what they're teaching y'all?


Your world isn't falling apart honey - it's just starting to come together. It'll be painful for awhile - but then you'll be okay.;-)

Steven, it's hard for me to go with the recent notion that racism is a purely white-folk based idea, when we have the wonderful, ancient example of institutionalized racism offered to us by the Indian Caste System. This is a system based on complexion wherein light skinned, High-Caste Brahmins have priority over dark colored Low-Castes in every aspect of society, from jobs, marriage (forbidden), and particularly religious ritual Purity, and where compliance with the system was enforced by beatings and even death, with the harshest measures reserved for the lowest, darkest, castes - the Untouchables.
It's a social-system at least a thousand years old that pre-dates our fairly recent emergence on the scene, and one which the Arab traders who gathered, bought, and sold slaves were absolutely familiar - since they also traded with India. A little Anthropology helps.

Dirtcrasher - I'm guessing that doesn't count.

Never let the facts get in the way - that's how the leftist intelligentsia operates, right?
