That brings us to the point about your "reconquista." The most common variation of it is that Mexican immigrants have an interest in "re-conquering" the U.S. Southwest, since they believe that it was "stolen" from them as a result of the Mexican-American war. Any knowledge of Mexican domestic politics and race relations would reveal to you how stupid an idea this is.
Contrary to popular misconceptions of Mexicans as a racial group rather than the national group that they are (as with Canadians or Americans), Mexico is a multi-racial country, but the three most prominent socio-racial classes are the whites (primarily Spanish), the Indians, and the mestizos (mixed Spanish-Indian). The mestizos overlap into the other two categories, and the majority can be reasonably classified as one or the other. The predominantly white ones were called "castizos" in colonial times, and are part of the white population today (since everyone is technically a "mestizo" to some degree, since everyone has some degree of admixture). The predominantly Indian ones were called "cholos" in colonial times, and lower-class mestizos that have darker skin and more "Indian" features are effectively treated as Indians, especially if they live in rural areas. The majority of mestizos are predominantly Indian, and the differences between the so-called "pure-blooded" and "mixed-blooded" Indian populations are actually more cultural than racial, something very common throughout Latin America, and present in Anglo America also. The Mestizo Concept: A Product of European Imperialism
The whites are the upper class and the Indians the lower class, with any middle to upper class Indians becoming "mestizos." The Mexican government is primarily composed of whites; the country is characterized by a form of informal apartheid that places Native Americans at the bottom of the totem pole.In Mexico an indio who puts on shoes, learns Spanish, and moves to a larger city becomes a non-Indian (he becomes mestizo or a Mexicano).
In Peru an Anishinabe woman who sets up a small shop becomes a chola. She is no longer an india.
In Guatemala a Cakchiquel who learns Spanish and moves to the city becomes a ladino. He is no longer indio.
In Peru, Bolivia, Mexico, and elsewhere, millions of people who were indios just a few years ago are now officially campesinos. Bolivia has no more Anishinabegs, only peasants.
In Brazil an Indian who takes up farming away from a tribal village becomes a caboclo or perhaps a mestizo or simply a Brazilian peasant.
In the United States an Indian whose reservation is terminated becomes officially a non-Indian.
In Canada an Indian whose group never signed a treaty or received a reservation is a metis.
In the United States many Chicanos of unmixed physical appearance are classified as whites with Spanish surnames.
In Mexico a man of complete Indian appearance who wears a suit, has a college education, and speaks Spanish has to be mestizo, since he could never be an indio.
Now, the majority of Mexican immigrants are the Indian lower and under classes; some have experienced such intense rural isolation that they do not even speak Spanish. Within Mexico, those Indians have been affiliated with socialist or leftist movements characterized by overt antagonism to the Mexican government, which is dominated by whites of Spanish extraction. The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (named after revolutionary figure Emiliano Zapata), is the most famous, and overwhelmingly consists of Tzotzil Mayans of the southernmost Mexican state of Chiapas, which borders Guatemala and is heavily Indian. Another is the "Magonista" movement (named after revolutionary figure Ricardo Flores Magon), in the heavily Indian state of Oaxaca. These groups have engaged in violent conflict with Mexican military forces in the past, and are certainly still very much at odds with the government.
It's thus the case that Mexican nationalism is hardly popular among migrant laborers; why would they desire that the government whose jurisdiction they are departing gain authority over the region that they are traveling to, particularly when many governmental figures are regarded as racists unsympathetic to their troubles? "Reconquista" ideology is discussed more often among socially conservative circles sympathetic to white populism than among Mexican immigrants.
Of course, you've still engaged in the same fallacy of equivalence that jamesrage and zimmer have, that of "Jesse Jackson is equivalent to David Duke." The only other people who have such ideas are white nationalists, who insist that Duke is merely an advocate for the white race as Jackson is an advocate for the black race, and claim to dislike Jackson not because he promotes racial equality, but because of his alleged promotion of black supremacy and "racism against whites."

[ame=http://www.stormfront.org/forum/showthread.php?t=395628#post4293021]Another Jesse Jackson Tirade On Evil Whitey - Stormfront[/ame]Do we expect anything more from Jesse? I don't. The guy is a total waste of oxygen. With as much as he runs his mouth, he should be charged an extra tax, or something, for all the carbon dioxide he spews from his pie hole. I encourage him to keep it up though, because there will come a day when mainstream Whites will see him talking smack on a daily basis, and they'll finally realize that he's just a race-baiting piece of filth. If a race war ever kicks off, I can guarantee you that jesse and al will be in the middle of it. For now, I just try to ignore what he says. When he's on TV, I change the channel. If he's mentioned in an article, I stop reading. If someone talks about him (in a positive way), I walk away. I don't NEED or WANT to hear his propaganda. This character cannot not go to hell quickly enough for me.

The rest of us know better. Black advocacy and "black pride" movements were born of specific discrimination against blacks as a racial minority and underclass; "white nationalism" is merely a feeble attempt to cling to an antiquated system of bigotry.Probably shortly after hell freezes over. Remember..."hate laws" only apply to whites.
