"Commie", maybe or a "red"?
"Goodnight and good luck" was the tagline of Edward R Murrow, famous wwII correspondent and newsman afterwards.
Interestingly, I recently watched a documantery he made about migrant farm workers in the US. It was made in 1960, when the majority of the workers were native-born blacks and some anglos. The living conditions were appalling then, and still are, I believe. The difference now is that almost all migrant workers are Mexican immigrants, mostly illegal and mostly do not speak english, so their situation is maybe even worse.
Ed Murrow would not be pleased to see how little progress has been made.
