Farrakhan says Mexican president was right

I found this on Yahoo! News. Farrakhan agrees with Mexican Pres. Vincente Fox's statement that "Mexican immigrants take jobs 'that not even blacks want.' " I heard about this development over the summer and no doubt Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson wanted Pres. Fox to apologize for this statement. Farrakhan on the other hand would like to see Mexicans and blacks to "form an alliance to correct differences and animosity between the two communities."

He was in Milwaukee to promote the Million More Movement which is planning an event on the Mall in Washington, DC. Farrakhan spearheaded the 1995 Million Man March. The Million More event is considered a more inclusive event with gays and women encouraged to participate.
