Somewhere, Cartman Is Laughing

When the Mexican President Vinicente Fox said that Mexicans take jobs even Blacks in the States won't take he got criticized as being racist. The argument, as I understand it, is Fox is implying Blacks are almost the lowest social class in America by suggesting any job they wouldn't do is really low. However, Fox spoke in support of immigration, which, generally, has some associated with semi-racist immigrant hating (see Gangs of New York). So, your racist is all conflicted when he or she hears this, right?

But then Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, says that Fox is right! He says Blacks don't want those jobs because in his words they already "picked enough cotton." So, what Farrakhan is saying is that Fox is right that Mexicans do take jobs that even Blacks won't take. And that such jobs carry with them a stigma of slavery? Mexican workers do slave work? Farrakhan who hates white-people, if one can construe that from all the "blonde, blue-eyed devil" remarks, is making racist comments about Mexicans. And pro-immigration Fox is bagging on Blacks. So, if you're a racist your whole world has been knocked into a cocked hat! Confused? Me too. That's why I just hate people one at a time.
