I'm confused here...a group who call its members "la Raza" (but it isn't racist), and whose stated agenda is "por la Raza, TODO....y fuera la Raza, NADA".....now claims that those who are "fuera la Raza" don't care if they lose jobs to those who are "dentro la Raza"....and this SURPRISES us? WHY? Seems to ME like these folks are being pretty clear with their agenda....

It would be a little like Stormfront (which claims that it isn't racist; it just 'promotes white culture') making a statement to the effect that, while their night-time activities MAY be a little outlandish, and MAY seem intimidating, their agenda is largely "OK with blacks", and that they're not aware that any blacks have ever had a "problem" with what they do..

So "la Raza" says that people OUTSIDE "la Raza" are OK with what "la Raza" is doing....really? What do we EXPECT them to say? that "everyone's MAD at us"?....

Hi MACMEAL
Would be interesting to know to what RACE the NCLR is representing according with your point of view?
Hispanics is a multiracial ethnicity. There are browns, whites, blacks, Asians, indigenous, etc.
Can we call RACIST a group of people with multiracial tolerance?

Don't see why not, they call every Anti-Illegal Immigrant supporter racist and we are all colors, religions and races.

Two wrongs don't make a right.

Entering a country illegally is also wrong so your illegal friends should go home

Is probably hard for you to understand that most hispanics living here are American citizens or legal residents and so are the members of NCLR. They are already @ home.

No one has an issue with them. The ones who are not here legally need to leave and return to their home countries.

The NAACP has worked to insure that African American citizens have the rights and privileges that they are entitled to under US law. They are not advocating for rights for a group of people who are in the US in violation of our immigration laws.

We are talking about NCLR. My question to MACMEAL was how NCLR is racist if is representing a multiracial group? This is a group of American citizens not a group of undocumented alliens.
