It was "a term that was commonly used during my days growing up on a farm in Central California"...

Cesar Chavez used the same term. And he's been reinvented as the Moses of the illegals who led them to the promised land -- which of course is not the case but the pro-illegals love to reinvent history and now portray Cesar Chavez as nothing but a proponent of ultra cheap labor.

Cesar Chavez's group also set up what they called "wet" patrols.

Not only did Cesar Chavez refer to them by that term, that's how they call them in Mexico.

The translation of "mojado" is "wet one", and they use the term all the time in Mexico -- it's not considered racist.

In what context did chavez use the term? I use the term ni**er; not in derogatory meaning, but in an historical context.

Sight a Chavez speech where he refered to undocumented mexican farm worker in a derogatory manor.

Who reveres Chaves as a "Moses" of illegal aliens? Chaves was worried about American farm workers. Chaves knew that farmers were using illegal undocumented farm workers from mexico to break their strikes. He didnt hate the undocumented farm worker, just the fact that farmers were using them against American farm workers.

Get your facts straight.

That sucks. His career is probably over.

What is sad the guy is probably not racis or anything. Just is a real person. In privae and in a high stress job they make jokes and such that are taboo to relax. Just did it so often something slipped out.

A lot of people will understand this behavior, but never the mainstream media. Along with an overly sensitive america that can't laugh at ourselves a little bit.

To me seemed like a politician that was a ltttle less fake.

Many Hispanics who defend illegal immigrants today do tout Chavez as a hero of the migrant farm worker of the past even though he was opposed to illegal immigration. How do I know this? I have read it in many forums and blogs where they have stated as such. Seems like a contradiction to me.

Not only that but I am sure he wasn't speaking of Mexicans who are citizens or legal immigrants of this country. That slur term is reserved for Mexicans who have been or are in our country illegallly. It just means they swam the Rio Grande to get here. I am sorry but I find it hard to feel bad about any terms describing law breakers. However, he is a politician and knowing how sensitive some groups are he shouldn't have said it and he did apologize.
