Farrakhan: Mexican President Was Right



Mon Aug 15,10:37 AM ET
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan said Mexican President Vicente Fox was right to say that Mexican immigrants take jobs "that not even blacks want."
Although Fox was sharply criticized for his remarks by some black leaders, Farrakhan said Sunday that blacks do not want to go to farms and pick fruit because they already "picked enough cotton."
"Why are you so foolishly sensitive when somebody is telling you the truth?" he asked the crowd at Mercy Memorial Baptist Church. He said blacks and Latinos should form an alliance to correct differences and animosity between the two communities.
Civil rights leaders including Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton have called on Fox to apologize for the remark. Fox has said he was commenting on the contributions that Mexicans make to the United States, and did not mean any offense.
Farrakhan, who spearheaded the 1995 Million Man March that drew hundreds of thousands of people to Washington, D.C., was in Milwaukee to promote the Millions More Movement, which has scheduled a rally Oct. 15 on the National Mall.
The march is billed as a more inclusive successor to the Million Man March. This time, organizers have encouraged women and gays to attend.

I happen to agree with Farrakhan. I was not shocked at the words and the concept expressed, but more shocked that the words were spoken and everyone, especially politicians, wanted to put their ostrich head in the ground. I have always said that an alliance should be made among the minorities. On the contrary, in America, if a minority can get one foot up on another minority they seem to take that tasteless road to "white acceptance".

Well if you look to what he wears over what he says then you are more enthralled with "IMAGE" The man wears a BOW TIE AND SUIT on a consistant basis he is not going around with women beside him and saying PIMP PIMP etc etc (unless I am wrong)
Argue what he says. Let the man have his 2 dollar worth of glasses or whatever. He has never said or been quoted as "PIMP" or has he. Bring forth a video or sound clip with that information then
make your arguement with his glasses. IT is pretty weak as it stands SO GET YA HUSTLE ON!! TO MAKING VALID POINTS . ON a second note if he likes those glasses let him be. You wear earings don't you? It is the same thing.You must have a favourite set of clothes or particular style you like including shoes etc!You are materialistic to a certain extend if you weren't you wouldnt be on a computer talking "PIMP" wear

If you take a look at his pictures (image search google) he has serveral different glasses. If the man is particular about his eye wear so what doens't mean he is pimping out females or hell males. Bush carries an IPOD guess what GUNIT 's 50 CENT advertised IPOD ALL UP AND DOWN HIS P.I.M.P video does that make BUSH A PIMP (WELL THAT IS ANOTHER STORY IN ITSELF)

Here is the PIMP WEAR

Minister Farakhan strikes again, and always very timely in his description of what should be obvious. I applaud his statements because if given a choice Mexicans would rather have more opportunity in Mexico.

Only thing I dislike about Farrakhan is his Arabization of African Americans. Socieities like the Nation of Islam serve good purposes,but are unfortunately trojan horses for Arabization. In any form Arabization is a form of racism like white supremacy.
