To clarify The illegals are enemies of the American People.

Politicians who vote for this are aiding the enemy.

Could you please tell that to Obama. He labeled the republicans his enemy out of one side of his mouth while using the other side to brag about how far he's reached across the aisle. Yes, it's trite. And yes, it could be the downfall of America. But I have to wonder if that isn't his end goal. He is far more concerned about illegals than citizens without jobs. Well, not really he just wants their vote. Once he has their vote they will become expendable too.

What brings LARAZA's credibility into question and by default that of many hispanics is how hard LARAZA fights for illegals. Then in the next breath they don't want to be stereo typed or profiled.
Now if I lived in a neighborhood of red necks who burned crosses, I wouldn't be argueing for their right to burn crosses on peoples front lawns then demand that I not be lumped in with the cross burners. At the very least I would distance my self from the cross burners and more than likely be outspoken and condemning such acts.

Latinos may of different races but they aren't of different ethnic backgrounds. They share a common ethnicity. One of which is the Spanish langauge being their native or primary one. Most people in this country who identify themselves as Hispanic/Latino ethnically are of mixed white Spaniard and native indian racially. They also comprise the bulk of Mexicans in Mexico commonly called Mestizos.

The proposed "Tequila Party" are comprised of the Hispanic/Latinos "ethnic" group. It is just as racist if Whites, Asians, or Blacks formed their own political group in this country only advocating for their own racial/ethnic group.

This thread is going downhill fast. And the last thing this forum needs is another race/ethnicity discussion.
Closed.
