LA RAZA is a racist organization because one of their mottos is "for our race everything, for the rest nothing". How could someone not be offended by that? I am and I am Mexican-American.No I didn't. He responded to me suggesting we should not support these neo nazis.
There was no need to say it because no one on this thread ever said one word of support for them.
But go ahead and explain why he said that even though no one had defended the neo nazis. What possible point was to be made making a statement of response to an action no one took?
La Raza aka the race. You would literally have to be a fool not to see the connection but if you need more:
One of America's greatest strengths has always been taking in immigrants from cultures around the world, and assimilating them into our country as Americans. By being citizens of the U.S. we are Americans first, and only, in our national loyalties.
This is totally opposed by MEChA for the hordes of illegal immigrants pouring across our borders, to whom they say:
"Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the notion that we...should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot...Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas ... It became synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the Manifest Destiny." (Statement on University of Oregon MEChA Website, Jan. 3, 2006)
"In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny. ... Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. ... We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada."
That closing two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all. It says: "For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing."
- HUMAN EVENTS
Their form of racism is no different than white supremacists.
Is every member of La Raza a racist? No. But the message they send is clear. They look out only for their own race and see American borders as an invasion of "their" land.
