Lou Dobbs: NBA Not Targeting Mexicans

Nov 2, 2009

"They Can't Jump"

NBA's drop in Mexican-born players due to high fences claims CNN's Dobbs
New York– The news that the NBA’s percentage of Mexican-born players plunged from 2% in 2008 to 1% in 2009, was hailed by CNN television personality Lou Dobbs as proof of the efficacy of tall border fences.

“Mexicans can’t jump,” said Dobbs, a longtime anti-immigration activist, who attributed the new, higher fences along the Mexican border for the reduction of Mexican players in the NBA.


“Fat people shouldn’t talk about jumping,” said New Jersey Nets’ forward Eduardo Najera, a Mexican citizen.

President Barack Obama sharply rebuked Dobbs’ “intemperate speech” as “wrong on the facts,” pointing out that Najera had “excellent hops.”
An emotional CNN spokesman, when Dobbs' statement was read to him by a reporter, said, "Oh no, not again," before abruptly ending the telephone interview. Lou Dobbs has lost 30% of its 2008 audience and CNN is currently last in cable network news ratings.
