Vicente Fox and The "Black ADL”
Posted 05/26/05
------------------------------------------------------

“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.”

- Vicente Fox



Many Blacks across the country are in an uproar over this recent statement made by Mexican President Vicente Fox who later expressed regret that his words were misunderstood. In spite of his explanation that his statement was not rooted in racism, some believe he should still apologize for his comment while leaders like Jesse Jackson Sr. and Al Sharpton have flown to Mexico to discuss the controversial 29-word sentence. The NAACP has also reportedly asked Fox to further explain his comments at their annual convention in July.

Question. What makes some Black individuals and leaders any different from certain Jews and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)? The ADL overreacts to the smallest mention, criticism or negative sounding statement made about Jews, just as some believe a number of Blacks are being extreme in their reaction to Fox’s words.

The ADL, over the years, has vilified leaders like Minister Louis Farrakhan as “anti-Semitic” for statements he has made and for some he has never made but that were manufactured and spread through the media. The Jewish defense group has: called on Min. Farrakhan to apologize for what they perceived to be “anti-Semitic” remarks; refused to accept his explanations of statements they found to be troublesome; actively engaged in campaigns to demand other leaders distance themselves from or denounce the Nation of Islam leader.

Granted, Blacks don’t appear to have an organization as aggressive or cohesive as the ADL, but what makes those who negatively reacted - or over reacted - to Fox’s words any different from what they might criticize about the ADL?

This writer finds nothing “racist” or problematic about Fox’s statement nor is there any dispute that many Mexicans accept jobs that numbers in America - Black, White or other - have no desire to perform. Maybe Fox was saying that even Blacks, who are descendants of the slaves who received the worst treatment known in history and who are still portrayed as the nation’s ‘undesirables’, refuse to do certain types of work in America - which many Mexicans gladly perform.

Blacks in this country have bigger and more pertinent issues to be concerned about than this one which has some wringing their hands over Fox’s virtually harmless words. What of the actual actions taken by many in America that are against the Black family and community? What of continued police brutality? What of the inequitable sentencing standards utilized in U.S. courts? What of the ever expanding big-business prison industry? What about sexual and physical abuse of Black children? What of all the real issues that are facing the people who are less than 200 years up from the chattel slavery many of their ancestors endured?

It appears that Blacks - some of them - have once again been hoodwinked, bamboozled and had! Some complained about the interjection of the “gay marriage” issue into the 2004 presidential campaign, even calling it a ‘Weapon of Mass Distraction’ which caused many to lose focus on more important issues and become divided over a manufactured and strategically placed diversion.


Now again, the least unified group of people in the country is showing how reactionary they are as they respond to Fox’s words as if those words really have anything to do with the major issues facing Blacks in America.

Are Blacks really and truly that gullible - even in 2005? Who is responsible for setting off this latest ‘Weapon of Mass Distraction’ that has succeeded in diverting attention from more pertinent issues? Who, or what cause, stands to gain when some individuals and groups sacrifice the concerns that really matter and begin acting as if they are the Black version of the ADL?

Yeah....

And what about prostate cancer?

What about hunger in Haiti?

What about the Kennedy assasination?

What about the dark side of the moon?


What about sticking to the g--d-mn issue instead of going all over the board with her/his rants having nothing to do with the situation at hand?



((shakes head))




This clown has no idea what he/she is talking about.

First of all blacks aren't the least unified group, the latinos are.
Generally Puerto Ricans have nothing to do with Mexicans, and Cubans have nothing to do with neither. The Dominicans and Puerto Ricans fight like cats and dogs up in New York.


Secondly, it's not that black people won't do these jobs....it's that we won't be SLAVES who work for nothing. An neither will whites or anyone else with pride and self-esteem.


This ain't some "white conspiracy" to turn blacks and Mexicans against eachother, hell Mexicans are already against us in many cases and have nothing to do with us socially and religiously in most.
White folks didn't make Fox make a statement suggesting that we are people of low expectation and accomplishment (even black wouldn't do)....he said it on his own.


Again, I don't hear any Mexicans or any other latinos apologizing or even discussing his statements because they don't care how we feel. They have a mission and are accomplishing it right now as we speak, which is to push us out the way and gain most favorite pet status from white America.

what is THE issue, THE situation at hand ralfa'il? why has this person's opinion seemingly upset you - it's just some words appearing on a computer screen just like fox's words were innocent, invisible things that came out of his mouth - they can't hurt you or anybody else.

do you get as upset about "black on black" crime?

1milehi: are you a black person?

did you see the thread about conservative sites?
maybe your views would find more acceptance at one of them.

yes i'm black - are you? yes i saw the thread about conservative sites but - so what? if i wanted to post this topic there - i would, and i rarely, if ever, post topics seeking the "acceptance" of anybody so your line of reasoning is completely foreign to me. some of you all don't like being challenged to think outside of the little boxes you've willingly placed over your heads - is that what the problem is?

did you consider that if you & others can't handle the opinion or line of thought being expressed, that you should just pass on by.....and keep your head stuck in the sand? ;-)

work those intellectual muscles out folks - :cardio: - if you can't challenge or refute the position expressed why resort to a copout of, 'take it somewhere else.' no, the position has been stated here and thus far i haven't seen anything from you or the other person that even begins to intelligently & rationally refute the op-ed. getting emotional, cussing and telling folks to take it somewhere else, are not the ways to show that whatever position you hold is any better than what you don't want to hear.
