POLITICAL CORRECTNESS REACHES ACROSS BORDERS

I don't particularly think what Mexico's president Vicente Fox said last week was accurate, but I don't think he meant any harm by it. He was speaking pretty openly, and now he's being chastised by none other than Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton for "racist comments." The two bigots Jackson and Sharpton are calling on Fox to apologize.

Here's what Fox said: "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."

I see what he's saying: Americans may complain of illegals or immigrants taking their jobs, but they're taking jobs that no one in this country is willing to do. The work is too hard and the wages are too low.

OK, so maybe it wasn't the most tactful of things to say, but guess what? Vicente Fox and the people of Mexico do not - and should not - fall under our screwed up ideals of political correctness. Since when do other nations have to abide by what a couple of pompous-ass black "leaders" from the United States say?

Yesterday, Vicente Fox was holding his ground. Today, he cowered down (for reasons unknown) and called Jackson and Sharpton both to express "regret." Vicente: don't apologize. You owe those bastards nothing. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are two of the most racist, hate-filled, bigoted, and divisive figures in the world today. They won't be happy until their agendas are fulfilled, and that means stepping on everybody who doesn't fall in line with them - white, black, hispanic or otherwise.

So what if those two were offended by the Mexican president's offhand remark? Do you really think that Vicente Fox's word holds a lot of sway within the black community in the United States? Did the foundations of African-American society and all they'd work to build for the last 150 years start to crumble when Vicente Fox made a harmless comment? I don't think so. If this went unanswered, no one would have really heard or paid attention to it. However, media-hogs like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have to have yet another moment in the spotlight, and the only way they can do so is by playing the victims.

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are huge embarrassments to the black community. Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Bill Cosby are/were the real heroes. They focused their energy inward and on empowering and educating. Jackson and Sharpton are worthless cysts on society who teach others to be victims. Whine loud enough and complain long enough and you'll get your way. I think the black community is ready for some real leadership from individuals who have made something of their lives - it's time for Condi Rice, Colin Powell, J.C. Watts and Bill Cosby to really step up and wrestle the spotlight away from Jackson and Sharpton. They are two of the most undeserving headliners in the news today.
