Race became an issue in the Democratic primary for governor today.

Farouk Shami, the millionaire hair care products maker who's running, said he doesn't find many white people willing to work, so he says he hires Hispanics and blacks instead. 

He made the comments responding to a question about whether the state should crack down on employers hiring illegal immigrants.

He also said he, too, would not disavow the conspiracy theory that the U.S. government was involved in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina said on Thursday that she has questions whether the U.S. government was involved in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, although she backpedaled from those remarks on Friday.

Shami declined at Monday's statewide televised debate to say if he backed a mandate on employers to use the E-Verify government database to check if new hires are in the country legally.

He was asked again during a taping of Inside Texas Politics.

Shami replied, “I find 80 percent of my employees at the factory are Hispanics. I don't find, you know, many white people really willing to work, you know, unfortunately.”

While still declining to answer the question, Shami said that at his Houston hair care products factory, Hispanics are vital to his business and the economy."

No votes yet

Psychotic, full of hate, etc.
But at least this Democrat has not been a Grand Dragon for the KKK (yet).

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

win or lose.

Because this man is a Democrat you need to realize that he just misspoke. His comments were taken out of context by tea party members. He of course considers the contributions to America by white people to be very important and didn't mean to diparage them, in fact a number of his friends are white.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

If you look at the history of this country, those in power have always utilized other people to do most of the work. The power brokers seem to think that work is 18 holes at Spy Glass followed by 3 rounds of martinis at the 19th hole, or, sitting in an air conditioned booth in a hot factory for eight hours at $30 per hour and watch the $8.95 per hour workers toil - and then head home with a 12 pack of Blue Ribbon and chill out for the evening watching "America's Got Talent".

"Psychotic, full of hate, etc.
But at least this Democrat has not been a Grand Dragon for the KKK (yet)."

Robert "KKK" Byrd has definitely left a void for another liberal to fill.

I'm white and I never want to work in a UNION factory.
