Do Hispanics work harder than black people and white people?
(State Sen. Robert Ford) "An African-American lawmaker in South Carolina said Tuesday that stricter illegal immigration laws would hurt the state because blacks and whites don't work as hard as Hispanics.
(Ford) made his remarks during a (state) Senate committee debate over an Arizona-style immigration law, eliciting a smattering of nervous laughter in the chamber after he said "brothers" don't work as hard as Mexicans. He continued that his "blue-eyed brothers" don't either.
Once (blacks) were freed from slavery, he said, they didn't want to do any more hard work, so they were replaced by Chinese and Japanese.
"We need these workers here. A lot of people aren't going to do certain type of work in this country...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."
Are Hispanics doing the work blacks and whites won't do?
