Can anyone imagine what would happen if a group of people of Celtic or Germanic ancestry formed an organization called "the race" and opened chapters on college campuses across the country?...Just a little perspective on this issue...

Perspective?

There are Celtic pride groups, and there are Germanic pride groups,

Scots pride groups, Latin pride groups, French, English, Polish,

heck, ...name a race, there's groups organized on colleges and in communities all over the country......

There's a little more perspective...

At my school we have:

Portuguese Club
Black Club
Filipino Club
Chinese Club
Japanese Club
Latino Club
German Club

Any person of any race/color/religion is allowed to join either of these clubs.

Are any of these groups part of a national organization that labels itself as "the race?"

No groups label themselves as the race. I don't, I think its pretty stupid. Indian/european is not a race.

So, you can't join a group called "La Raza" on any college campuses these days? ...You could in the late 80s at the college I attended. I even attended a different university for grad school in the 90s; and, I found La Raza there as well.

Wasn't it you, ProLogic, who argued that regardless of how benign the term "white pride" is on it's face, that radical extremism has made it so that the term "white pride" can no longer be used without a racial context?

Copy your entire argument that you made against "white pride" to "La Raza."

There you go. No matter what Mexican teenagers use the term "La Raza" to signify, in AMERICA, the term has a negative connotation, being popularized and co-opted by a bunch of whack jobs with Spanish last names and inferiority complexes.
