Civil Rights Leader Andrew Young Bashes Jews, Koreans, and Arabs

Prominent Democrat Andrew Young has been many things in his career: civil rights leader, Atlanta mayor, American ambassador to the United Nations. One job that he will probably leave off his resume is head of Working Families for Wal-Mart, which aims to counter the hostile propaganda Young's colleagues on the Left have been directing at the world's largest retailer.

For a former close associate of Martin Luther King, Young did a remarkably poor job of improving Wal-Mart's public image. When asked in a newspaper interview whether he was concerned about Wal-Mart driving mom-and-pop stores out of business, Young had this to say:

Well, I think they should; they ran the "mom and pop" stores out of my neighborhood. But you see, those are the people who have been overcharging us, selling us stale bread and bad meat and wilted vegetables. And they sold out and moved to Florida. I think they've ripped off our communities enough. First it was Jews, then it was Koreans and now it's Arabs; very few black people own these stores.

As Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles observed,

[I]f anyone would utter remarks like this about African-Americans, his voice would be the first to rise in indignation.

But nobody should be too surprised, considering that Young was backing Cynthia McKinney — who is often associated with Jew-baiting — in her recent unsuccessful primary campaign, on the grounds that "Congress needs controversy."

Next Young will try his hand as a fashion designer.

On a tip from Wiggins.

This guy says much worse sober than Mel Gibson said while drunk and the media is silent.

If Mel had been a flaming left wing moonbat he would have gotten a pass in the same way as this guy, Hiltlery "Ghandi Runs A Gas Station" Klinton, Robert "White Nigger" Byrd and Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson.
