Keep this in mind:

NCLR- The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) (translated as the "people" or "race") is a non-profit and non-partisan advocacy group in the United States. Its stated focus is on reducing poverty and discrimination, and improving opportunities for Hispanics

La Raza- La Raza (Mexican Spanish IPA: [la ˈrasa]; Castilian Spanish IPA: [la ˈraθa]) is a Mexican Spanish phrase which literally translated as "The Race" however a more accurate translation would be "the people" or "the community"

Please make the distinction.

Let's speak the truth here only, let there be light!

LA RAZA is a bunch of agressive people with dark ideas, at least that's the impression we've gotten.

Again.. you are referring to the organization La Raza. This is what I'm talking about. The Original La Raza is a term used by Chicanos to describe Mexicans.

ok that is something different, in Mexican spanish there are 2 slangs to refer to the crew, the brothers, one is la banda, from chilango spanish (spoken in mexico city) and the other is la raza from regio spanish (spoken in monterrey)

For example, man the whole raza is here, let's go to the game together

Nope, you make the distinction. The fact that the words mean The Race shows what they are all about and they are NOT about the community. The only people they are for happen to be Hispanics. You make the distinction. They are a racist and bigoted organization and nothing else and have proven that fact over and over again.

See, now this is getting to the point of annoyance. Are you referring to "La Raza", the term used by chicanos to reference Mexican people or the organization?

People, lets try to read the OP thoroughly before making comments.

You are right. It is also a shame that the KKK and other groups have denagrated the Stars and Bars and other Confederate flags too.
