Farouk Shami opened his mouth again. Naturally his minute shot at being Texas’s next Governor further diminished. What bothers me about this man is his arrogance. He thinks just because he is wealthy that he knows something about America, American people and Texas. In fact he’s just a sheltered rube who is finally going to learn that, outside his internal group of yes-men and social suck-ups his views are ridiculous and quite bluntly stupid.
He was discussing Texans working in factories when he said “A majority of the people are going to be Hispanic and African-American,” he said. “You don’t find white people who are willing to work in factories. And our history proves lots of time when … the white people come to work in a factory they either want to be supervisors or they want to be paid more than the average person. And unfortunately they exit.”
Wow. Political figures just aren’t allowed to make generalizations based on race. It’s not a viable move for any candidate. Even it if were true it would be uncalled for. The article I linked to goes on to provide a quote refuting his bizarre statement from someone who is… wait for it… Informed! Wow, now there’s an idea.
Shami responded to a question about illegal immigration by saying: “A day without Mexicans is a day without sunshine.”
Unreal. Illegal immigration is a huge problem and this is all this gubernatorial candidate has to say on the issue? Now we know he’s one of those documentary-made geniuses.
The fool also alluded to the fact that he believes a government conspiracy could have been behind the September 11 attacks. All this info is from just one article. I’m scared to do more research on the guy. He’s maddeningly ignorant, misinformed, arrogant and hypocritical. I’ve never come across a political candidate I had so much disdain for.
