MILWAUKEE -- 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.

This should be entertaining.

As often as I disagree with him, he's right from time to time. And a hell of a public speaker.

Hitler was a great public speaker as well.

Hitler and Farrkhan also had something else in common. They are both extremely bigoted.

My grandpa used to pick cotton as a kid. One of the jobs a kid could get in the summers out in the country. I think they have machines that do it now.

Anyone will take any job if that is all they can get to eat and live. I don't even have a problem with Mexican immigrants coming to the US and taking those jobs. I just want them to do it legally.

Naw. They ain't idjits. Calipso Louie, Al Charlatan and Jessee Jackass have all figured out how to live better than you while doing nothing...well, nothing good. Hitler figured that out along with how to entertain the whole world while he was at it.

He said blacks and Latinos should form an alliance to correct differences and animosity between the two communities. He may find that the Latinos are far greater in number and strength and that he becomes nothing more than a sidekick to a Latino leader.

LoL Hispanics wont need to ally with Black politicians.

More and more I bet you will hill more so called black leaders like Jessie and the like calling for this, its only because they realize that thier little 13% of the population wont mean jack anymore because we arent going to be catering to thier wants anymore.

No sh*t sherlock. I'm not going to go pick fruit for $2.50 an hour. No sane person in this country will. I've had to put up with 25+ mexicans living in a house next door to me before. Bunch of arseholes and I wasn't sad to see them get deported back.
