Jesse Jackson finally meets his match

The Rev. Jesse Jackson, more popularly known for basically shaking down businesses, actually did something worthwhile for a change:
The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Saturday criticized Mexican President Vicente Fox's comment that Mexican immigrants to the United States take jobs "that not even blacks want to do."

Jackson called the remark "a spurious comparison" with "ominous racial overtones."
Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Derbez tried to cover for Fox with this: "The president didn't make a declaration in the racist sense; of course there are those who interpret it in that way... [Fox was making the point that] Mexican migrants are making great contributions in the United States and that their role is a positive role... ...I think that what we have to be very clear about is that the statement made by the president was in no way motivated by racism."

Unfortunately, the Rev. also says he's going to be giving Fox a call, and you know what that normally means.

Fox is such a sacred monkey to the administration that he knows he can say whatever he wants. Racial provocation was probably his intention.
