Be careful because you are trying to tell someone something that acts like he knows everything there is to know about the country of Mexico.

Then - go tell the group, calling themselves La Raza, at Pruitts Furniture, that they are wrong -

Please make the distinction.
The problem is, they are also funded by the federal government, OUR tax dollars!

NCLR Motto:

Por La Raza - Todo.
Fuera de La Raza - Nada.

For those of the race - Everything.
For those outside of the race - Nothing.

People, lets try to read the OP thoroughly before making comments.
You can ask people to "make the distinction" all you like, but I think people here know what organization people mean when they abbreviate it to "La Raza".

We ARE adults, after all. We are capable of making educated guesses.
