"Well, I think they should; they ran the 'mom and pop' stores out of my neighborhood," the paper quoted Mr. Young as saying. "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."At a Walmart board meeting later that day:
Andrew Young: "Yay! The civil rights movement is off and running again! Darn those kikes, gooks and ragheads! We'll teach them to mess with us! Aren't you glad you hired me?"
Shocked Walmart board members: "You're fired."
Who'd have guessed this would happen? I mean, the guy's credentials were perfect, right? Didn't he have a history of couching everything in life in an "us-versus-them" terminology? So he got carried away. So what? He just forgot who was "them". I think someone forgot to give Mr. Young the manual instructing him just who you could point fingers at and who you couldn't. Oh well. I'm sure he'll land on his feet. I hear the UN will be needing a new Secretary-General soon.
