I think you have to take everything he said in full-context:

You can make a case that America has been great because every—I think John Adams said this—basically if you’re a free society, a capitalist society, after two or three generations of hard work everyone becomes kind of decadent, lazy, spoiled—whatever. Then, luckily, you have these waves of people coming in from Italy, Ireland, Russia, and now Mexico, who really want to work hard and really want to succeed and really want their kids to live better lives than them and aren’t sort of clipping coupons or hoping that they can hang on and meanwhile grew up as spoiled kids and so forth. In that respect, I don’t know how this moment is that different from the early 20th century.

He may not have stated his thoughts very well, but I think he is correct in saying that historically immigrants bring with them a certain drive, or push, for the "American dream" that many non-immigrant Americans may not have.

Yes. Immigrants that want to and do integrate with America. That is not happening with Hispanic immigrants like it used to.

I loved it simply because it turned a well known racist stereotype on its head. Like all stereotypes it s a massive oversimplification. I see a lot of white people have been outraged.

Did I point out that that I am a hardworking and educated black man????

it`s great that you are enjoying the tit for tat racism but exactly how is this helping to create unity and tolerance?
if we aren`t actually going to work for tolerance and unity then we should the drop the charade of saying that we are.

Yes but Tit for Tat racism is "The ATS way" ith the predominantly white contributors going on an on about Black people always being druggies/ violent / Welfare moms etc. Wake up this is the kingdom of the blind.

I just hope that now some people may just understand the irony and yes may even just , Just try and ignore the lumpen elements of all colours.

Any criminal robbing you is bad!
