The Providence Journalâ€™s Karen Lee Ziner has just published an interesting update on the ICE arrest of Guatemalan illegals who were recently hired to shovel snow at Gillette Stadium just before a New England Patriots game [How did dozens of illegal immigrants end up shoveling snow at Gillette?, by Karen Lee Ziner, Providence Journal, January 31, 2010].
The word "racism" continues to morph like a deadly cancer beyond its meaning of prejudice based upon skin color. The misuse in this case centers on cabbies speaking English, though a language can be learned by anyone (even immigrants), while a person cannot change their race.
Obviously it is not racism to advertise the skill set of the driver. Prospective customers want to know that the cabbie will understand when they explain where they want to go. Communication is a central part of the job.
