"His best maids are Mexicans." When I am on the road I get to be exposed to more US media. Newsweek, for example, would like you to know that Bush is sensitive to Mexicans and Latinos in general because he has a maid from Mexico. This reminds me of a Lebanese academic who, after expressing prejudice against Shi`ites in a conference, immediately said that he can't be prejudiced against Shi`ites because the maid in his house when he was growing up was Shi`ite.
