Ultimately what the U.S. decides to do within its own borders, can not be changed by what people in Mexico think or would like. Case made with the long debated illegal immigration and amnesty issue that has been put on the backburner since 9/11. Yet Mexico's representatives to the U.S. have continued to lean on the U.S. on the subject. And they continue to voice out the double standards and bad treatment that undocumented immigrants face while working in the U.S. That is what is expected from such representatives, and that is exactly what your representatives should also be doing. But at the end, you have to recognize that neither country rules as the other dictates, they may compromise, but it is out common agreement and benefit, and not because of anything else. having said this, I bring forward this reply to presidente Fox's racial comment, which I had already written before you brought out the issue.

A MAN SPEAKS WHAT RESIDES IN HIS HEART" AND FOX FOCKED UP BY SPEAKING HIS MIND IN THE PUBLIC ARENA, JUST LIKE THE TERMINATOR DID ALSO A FEW WEEKS BACK "CLOSE THE BORDER" - REMEMBER?
I wrote the v v v v in response to the same issue on another site.
I do believe that since Mr. Fox is Mexico's top rep' to the world, he should watch how he communicates his message, more so than others in government. But having said this, I do see and understand clearly the "truth" in the implication made, whether Americans and/or Black-Americans care to acknowledge or not, the fact remains that Blacks are viewed in American society -because of their skin color- lowest on the totem pole, even more so than Mexicans or Undocumented Immigrants. And Blacks as well as most of Us in this country -refuse to perform a number of honest jobs- which are viewed with the attitude of "no way, ain't doing that type of work," even if the pay was on par with other professions.
Black-Americans were slatted for those jobs in the past by the American system, which saw it as the appropriate place for them. Today, the same view is still held about Black people, except that "today" they will not enter the slaughterhouse that easily. Therefore the undocumented worker fills the positions to which "American society" still believes is the Black-Americans dutiful place. So when I hear Fox saying this, he is basically saying what American society practices on this ethnic minority, and how the undocumented worker is also fitted conveniently into that same America racial logic.
P.S. "YES" President FOX is a racist, he has demonstrated it before you all, 1st by saying what he said, 2nd by not apologizing for it, 3rd by the non-mentioning of Mexico's 3rd root of Black ancestry Mexicans. These people together with "many" Native Indians of Mexico are being systematically displaced from their lands and forced into servitude at the bottom of the totem pole.
RACISM HAS BEEN PRACTICED ON MEXICO'S "CASTE SYSTEM" POPULATION BY THE SPANIARDS AND CRIOLOS (MEXICAN BORN SPANIARDS OF NON-MIXED BLOOD), EVEN ONTO THIS PRESENT ERA.
So true. That's what these idiots don't understand. Racism towards indians is alot worse then towards blacks. Blacks make up less then 1% of the mexican population. Indians are so negatively thought of that they ain't even worth putting on a stupid stamp.
Indians have nothing to do with this.I hate it when people act like one wrong excuses another,or makes another less bad.We are talking about Memin Penguin and how these stamps are offensive to blacks.
