Let me tell, talk to you about the Mexicans, and these are just things I know about the negroes. I want to tell you one more thing I know about the negro. When I go, went, go to Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and I would see these little government houses, and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids -- and there's always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch. They didnít have nothing to do. They didnít have nothing for their kids to do. They didnít have nothing for their young girls to do.
And because they were basically on government subsidy -- so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never, they never learned how to pick cotton. And Iíve often wondered are they were better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things? Or are they better off under government subsidy?
You know they didnít get more freedom, they got less freedom -- they got less family life, and their happiness -- you could see it in their faces -- they wasn't happy sitting on that concrete sidewalk. Down there they was probably growing their turnips -- so thatís all government, thatís not freedom.
Now, let me talk about the Spanish people. You know, I understand that they come over here against our Constitution and cross our borders. But theyíre here and theyíre people -- and Iíve worked side by side a lot of them.
Donít tell me they donít work, and donít tell me they donít pay taxes. And donít tell me they donít have better family structures than most of us white people. When you see those Mexican families, theyíre together, they picnic together, theyíre spending their time together, and Iíll tell you in my way of thinking theyíre awful nice people. And we need to have those people join us and be with us not, not come to our party.
