Idiot Patriot

Bill Coors, the scion of the Coors beer brewing family, once delivered a remarkable patriotic speech before a large multi-racial audience. After telling the Mexican Americans that, like them, his father was a "wetback" (having crossed the Atlantic rather than the Rio Grande), he turned his attention to the blacks in the audience: Though their ancestors had been brought over in chains and subsequently enslaved, he declared, they should have been "grateful" to their American hosts.

["Dark Africa," he later explained, was no earthly paradise. To this day, many people refuse to drink Coors beer.]
