Thats probably the best one for this purpose(the organization). But people like to translate the worst meaning of it.

"theyre racist! Do you know what 'la raza' means? It means 'the race'! Racist!"
That one always cracks me up.

Yet another thread hijack, brought to you by amc760/Californio. The subject of this thread is not how "LA Raza" can be interpreted. It is about a Senator who wants to enact legislation about the healthcare illegals get while in detention.

Which is THE SAME quality of healthcare that American citizen prisoners get. Menendez is nothing more than a His-pandering POS out to get 'special consideration' for his 'gente'.

Instead of hijacking the thread AGAIN by crying about threads being hijacked, got anything to say?

Let me guess......you don't want illegals to get "BETTER" healthcare while in detention.

I'm an American, through and through, and people like Menendez make me physically ill with their ethnic pandering. Sure, it'll get him votes in illegal-heavy New Jersey, but at what price?

Dare I say the 'B' word? Balka.... Never mind, I don't think you 'get it' anyway.

And you cant keep crying about the race card when somebody's saying something you dont like.
More encroachment on the 1st Amendment? You will NOT dictate how and what I say. I will continue to refer to Janet's group as La Raza, and you are free to refer to the NAACP as the Colored People.

Orrr you could just be civil and acknowledge you are using the term wrongly, but nah go ahead. Just dont be surprised by if you are considered the dreaded "R" or "B" words if you use the term in that way in front of Mexican-Americans, which I doubt you know any.

I think its insane to deny anyone if for that matter a United States citizen the right to health care. I think people need not to think of themselfes in this situation, but think of everyone in the United States involved. We should give illegal immigrants the right for free health care espically if they are working in the United States. They could possibly be immigranting into the United States infected with many dieases for that matter, but no we priveleged United States citizens wouldn't think of that!? I think its ridiculous that we can take away or not grant someone ( a human) the right to health care!
