The story goes that Algore showed up at a La Leche League confernece and thought he was at La Raza.
Even if the exact details are lost, it just goes to show ya...
I do not want somebody who walked across the border to have the same rights I do.
The only right they should have is a crash course in parachuting back over their homeland.
Second offense leaves them in the water.

They sure do start the weasel-words when the finger they’ve been pointing comes back at them, don’t they? I’m trying to wrap my head around the concept that it’s racism against Hispanics to oppose illegal immigration but it isn’t racist to promote it under the auspices of The Race. That may make sense to a Professor Of Diversity but I’m afraid it’s too subtle for me.
(While it is true that one meaning of ‘raza’ in Spanish is indeed ‘race,’ . . . words can and do have multiple meanings, reads the statement. ‘La raza’ means ‘the people’ or ‘the community)
Sorry. You can parse the word all you want. Tha fact is that your organization promotes things that are harmful to America, Americans and Legal Immigrants from all over the world that want to become AMERICANS

Translating our name as 'the race' is not only inaccurate, it is factually incorrect. 'Hispanic' is an ethnicity, not a race. . . . Hispanics can be and are members of any and all races. ..... Still, raza can mean different things to different people, even Spanish speakers. For some it means family and community, while for others it represents the language and customs of Latinos. ..... Several Latin American countries celebrate Oct. 12 as Dia de la Raza Columbus Day in the United States commemorating the beginning of a mixture between Spaniards and the native populations.
In Mexico, "la raza" is used to specifically refer to the Mestizo "race" formed by the intermarriage of Spaniards with the local Indians. The term has nothing to do with non-Mestizo Spanish-speaking countries.
A Cuban asked about "la raza" would want to know what "raza" you were taking about. The "negros"? The "blancos"? The "Indios"?

BS. In English, I say "community" when I wish to convey the idea of community. In Spanish, you can say "la comunidad." If you wish to say "the people", then say "la gente." One of my Spanish dictionaries, printed in Barcelona, Spain (I figure that the folks in Spain have a pretty good handle on the Spanish language) has the following meanings for "la raza":
Raza - Race, breed, or lineage. No mention of "community".

Hmmmm...Why no mention of La Razas motto, Barack?
How about you, Soto?...
Why no mention of the fact that La Razas motto is:
For the Race: Everything!..For others: Nothing!
La Raza is a racist, Non-American-Mexican group of Militant Foreign Aliens.

La Raza and MeCHa share the same racist view of “for everyone within the race...everything, for those outside...nothing.” Can’t get any clearer than that.

Isn’t their organization motto “For La Raza, everything; for those outside La Raza, nothing”? Doesn’t sound very community-oriented to me; sounds more like the kind of thing that race-based nationalists would say.

It's a very subjective term, said Bernardo Ferdman, a professor at the Marshall Goldsmith School of Management at Alliant University, who teaches about diversity in the workplace.
Of course it is professor. And most of us subjectively take La Raza to mean "liar-communist-racist".

Why is it then that whenever someone protests illegal immigrant members of “la raza” that the protesters are immediately labeled as racists? You can’t have a racist if there is no race.
