“An African-American lawmaker in South Carolina is coming under fire for staying stricter immigration laws would hurt the state. His reason, he says blacks and whites don't work as hard as Hispanics.” (KNXV)
South Carolina Senator Robert Ford -- a Charleston Democrat -- is stirring up controversy with his public statements yet again.
Ford shared his opinion that black ‘brothers’ and his blue-eyed ‘brothers’ are not as hard working as Mexican immigrants at an immigration debate on Tuesday. Here is what he had to say.
"The brothers are going to find ways to take a break. Ever since this country was built, we've had somebody do the work for us." (BV Blackspin)
Those comments fired up a writer for Black Voices who says - how can you forget slave labor?
“‘'We've had someone do the work for us'? Really, Senator Ford? Maybe Senator Ford doesn't realize that "Black Ivory," as valuable slaves were called, practically built his state of South Carolina with their bare, bleeding hands.”
As Michael Benning for CBS affiliate -- WLTX --- reports, Ford comments could be referring to a certain type of work as ‘hard work.’
Michael Benning: “Now Ford also says he encourages people to come listen to the Senator themselves. He says that way you do not need to get it second hand from quote ‘reporters like me who think they work hard.’ ”
Anchor One: “So if you are Miguel Benning instead of Michael Benning, you work hard?”
Michael Benning: “I suppose, huh?”
Anchor One: “You suppose...”
Anchor Two: “A lot of people I am sure watching tonight that disagree who feel like they are going to get up in the morning tomorrow and do some very hard work at their jobs.”
Reporter: “Yeah, I think that maybe what Senator Ford meant is manual labor, but he just kept using the word ‘hard work.’”
But a writer for New York Magazine writes, Ford was just saying what many people already think.
“It's not a totally politically correct position to take, but isn't this actually a pretty widely accepted concept? Plenty of Americans do have tough jobs, but everybody knows that the jobs illegal immigrants take are some of the most low-paying and grueling ones our country has to offer — the busboys, the day laborers, the farmhands, etc.”
The Charleston City Paper’s Chris Haire says the media is blowing the whole thing up and controversial comments from politicians are to be expected.
“Now, I'm not deeply troubled by what Ford said. And just as we have come to expect such silliness from him, we've come to expect the press to report it. That's the way it is. If you can't rip a politician when they put their tootsies in their mouths, then what good are they for.”
So what do you think? Are Ford’s comments offensive or just blown out of proportion?

ANCHOR ANA COMPAIN-ROMERO
The principal of an elementary school in Massachusetts has opened fire on fall holidays-- writing an email to the school staff calling on them to think twice before celebrating Columbus Day and Thanksgiving. Here’s Fox News.
“Anne Foley is the principal of the Kennedy School in Somerville, Massachusetts. She says celebrating Thanksgiving and Columbus Day is, quote, insensitive toward Native Americans. She’s also banning Halloween because of its association with witchcraft.”
Now media outlets are wondering-- is this a case of extreme political correctness? Or does Ms. Foley have a point? The Dartmouth Review quotes a part of the Principal's email:
"When we were young we might have been able to claim ignorance of the atrocities that Christopher Columbus committed against the indigenous people... We can no longer do so. For many of us and our students celebrating this particular person is an insult...”
The students are also not allowed to dress up for Halloween-- though-- the school is hosting a Halloween party that weekend. Some of their parents tell NECN the principal is taking this too far.
Parent #1: “If you don’t want to celebrate it, then don’t celebrate it. But I don’t think it’s right for the kids that do celebrate it to suffer.”
Parent #2: “This is America and I think people like her stir up all these prejudices.”
But the Somerville mayor counters-- the media is blowing this out of proportion. He argues in an editorial in the Boston Herald that Ms. Foley was just trying to open up a healthy discussion.
“No one is saying people cannot celebrate our traditional holidays, just that there’s more to them than fits on the back of a matchbook... The story of Columbus is complicated, just like history is complicated. Our educators should be having that discussion.”
A blogger for Babble says-- why not have it both ways? Let the kids celebrate, and use that celebration to start a conversation.
“Shouldn’t these holidays be teaching moments for kids? About opening up dialogue? Or should kids be made to feel ashamed for something other people did centuries ago?”
