I was puzzled by it but heck, they offered me some money to go to college, I wasn't about to turn it down. Once in college and I learned the theory behind aztlan and chicanismo, it was no longer appealing to me.
Nation of Aztlan are extreme even in the context of the Aztlanist millieu ; just look at what they say about gays and Jews (including Mexican or Mexican-American gays and Jews). They're on the ADL and SPLC hate group lists for good reason. They remind me of not only Aryan groups but also Jewish extremists like Meir Kahane, i.e. the guys who talk about a "silent holocaust". Surprisingly they don't seem to talk much about African-Americans, though, maybe it's just a matter of omission or lower priority in their hierarchy of hate.

didnt check the website. rather not add a HIT to their site.

but i disagree. this garbage is NOT popular among the mex-amer peoples. IT IS NOT VERY POPULAR. you ask most people they will respond with a "who?" or "Kay, kay?". seriously, where do you get your info from. this is a fringe group. people dont know about them. its seems you guys know more about these people than anyone else.

as for the assertion by other posters that aztlan = kkk. thats also erroneous. aztlan is a story, a myth like atlantis. thats all it is. again the understanding of La Raza and Aztlan are misunderstood by most people.

except i know that in the same faulty manner that "La Raza" is used, so will "Aztlan" be. i could see it now...

"yes and then those aztlan(interchangeable with "la raza") people were marching and demanding rights!"
"those aztlaners are the most racists!!!"

lots of misinformation going around guys. lets be reasonable and rational.

i hear that it's very popular among the mexican-american community and that there's a movement for aztlan.

anyone? i think some of that website's content is scary
