Fox's Racist Remark: Where Is Our Outrage?

Need I go on?

Astoundingly, the Reverend Jessie Jackson has come to Fox's aid by claiming that he's sure the Mexican president didn't mean to sound racist. WHAT? Rev. Jackson, you, sir, are wrong. Fox's remarks are racist, horribly so. Where is your outrage? Which leads me to wonder, Rev. Jackson, what's in it for you?

And why haven't the mainstream media erupted in outrage at Fox's blatant racism?

Can you imagine the uproar that would be spewing from Jackson's mouth and buzzing through the media if President Bush or any Republican had said anything that could be even remotely construed in such a manner? Hmmm ... I'm having visions of former majority leader Trent Lott, whose misguided statements about Strom Thurmond's presidential campaign cost him his job. And what about the television sport show firing of Rush Limbaugh for daring to remark on the media's assessment of a black quarterback?

Yes, we live in one nation, but there are definitely two sets of rules – one based on honor and another based on hypocrisy and partisan politics.

It is far past time for us to come together and reject the philosophy of the American doormat – the concept where we allow Fox and others to walk all over us. We are a fair-minded people with an easy-going temperament, and our relaxed nature is being used against us.

States are drowning financially due to uncontrolled illegal immigration. California is in a financial crisis, and $10 billion worth of the problem is spent on illegal aliens. But this is not just a border state problem. It affects each and every one of us in the U.S.

For example, Tennessee is a state that doesn't often enter conversations regarding illegal immigration, yet in the 1990s it had the sixth-fastest-growing foreign-born population, giving it a 169 percent increase.

Our nation is slowly buckling under the pressure of illegal immigration. It is the greatest threat to our national security and is a problem not only from those sneaking across our borders but also obviously from those at the highest levels. For it appears that Mexican President Fox exercises far too much sway over our nation.

So, I ask again, where is our outrage?
