Alaska Congressman uses ethnic slur to describe migrant workers
In a move that could inflame the debate on immigration, Alaska Congressman Don Young (R-Dipshit), referred to the migrant Mexican laborers employed seasonally on his daddy’s ranch as “wetbacks”.
"My father had a ranch," said the 21-term lawmaker in a radio interview with KRPD. "We used to have fifty, sixty wetbacks to pick tomatoes."
This writer can only presume that his eyes were misty with nostalgia.
Of course, Congressman Young apologized. In the U.S., it is standard operating procedure to apologize whenever you get called out saying racist crap.
"I meant no disrespect," he explained hilariously.
