I received this in an e-mail today.  LOVE IT!

Good for him!!! Surprised CBS let him get away with this even though
 he’s right Andy Rooney! Andy Rooney said on ’60 Minutes’ a few weeks
 back: I don’t think being a minority makes you a victim of anything
 except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly
 discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet
 Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America. Try
 to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud
 Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss White America; and
 see what happens…Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door.
 Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer.
 You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is
 trying to ban you from driving to the ball game. I believe they are
 called the Boy Scouts for a reason, which is why there are no girls
 allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts! ARE YOU LISTENING MARTHA
 BURKE? I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a
 phobia, it is an opinion. I have the right ‘NOT’ to be tolerant of
 others because they are different, weird, or tick me off. When 70% of
 the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of the
 population is black, that is not racial profiling; it is the Law of
 Probability. I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, a pack
 of cigarettes, a newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in
 English! As a matter of fact, if you want to be an
 American/Canadian/British citizen, you should have to speak English!
 My father and grandfather didn’t die in vain so you can leave the
 countries you were born in to come over and disrespect ours. I think
 the police should have every right to shoot or arrest you if you
 threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you can’t understand
 the word ‘freeze’ or ‘stop’ in English, see the above lines. I don’t
 think just because you were not born in this country, you are
 qualified for any special National Assistance, loan programs,
 government sponsored bank loans or tax breaks, etc., so you can open
 a hotel, coffee shop, corner store, or any other business. We did not
 go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk our lives in wars
 to defend their freedoms, so that decades later they could come over
 here and tell us our constitution is a living document; and open to
 their interpretations I don’t hate the rich I don’t pity the poor I
 know pro wrestling is fake, but so are movies and television. That
 doesn’t stop you from watching them. I think Bill Gates has every
 right to keep every penny he made and continue to make more. If it
 ticks you off, go and invent the next operating system that’s better,
 and put your name on the building. It doesn’t take a whole village to
 raise a child right, but it does take a parent to stand up to the
 kid; and smack their little behinds when necessary, and say ‘NO!’ I
 think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want them, but please
 don’t pretend they are a political statement. And, please, stay home
 until that new lip ring heals. I don’t want to look at your ugly
 infected mouth as you serve me French fries! I am sick of ‘Political
 Correctness.’ I know a lot of black people, and not a single one of
 them was born in Africa ; so how can they be
 ‘African-Americans/Canadian/British’? Besides, Africa is a
 continent. I don’t go around saying I am a European-American because
 my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather was from 
Europe . I am proud to be from America and nowhere else And if you
don’t like my point of view, tough…

Well, said, Andy Rooney.  Well said.
