Latino assemblyman: Asians not ‘people of color’
CalWatchDog ^ | April 27, 2014 | Chris Reed

Posted on 04/29/2014 6:13:19 AM PDT by artichokegrower

The increasing rift between Latino and Asian Democrats over Latinos’ newly revived interest in gutting Proposition 209 took a funny twist in the Sacramento Bee. So much for the Rainbow Coalition — it turns out that one lawmaker thinks Asian-Americans are no longer “of color”:

Luis Alejo is my state assemblyman. His previous accomplishment has been giving driver's licenses to illegal aliens. He was the founding member of the local Brown Berets chapter, once was mayor of the City of Watsonville and his wife is the current mayor. A true raced based political cartel.

Congratulations, Asians. You've become so successful that you've been granted “honorary white” status, which means that the grievance-mongers can hate you too.

OUCH! Talk about Liberal Double Standards!

You will never find a more racist institution on earth than the Democrat Party.

Among educators, the acronym is “NAM” or non-Asian minority. This way, when they talk about the failings of minorities in schools due to a white power structure and white racism, they can conveniently exempt Asians.

Asians were kick-out of the grievance club long ago. Reverse discrimination for ASIANS at California admittance has been going on for a while. I had a friend who adopted an ASIAN baby and graduated high honors in HS. They were told that being ASIAN worked against her for Standford. I asked that since she had an “anglo” name how would they know? Answer, they investigate you and even social media to find out if you are Asian....

From the article:

Gee imagine that. Now if only whites would stand up as well.

Asians need to figure out real quick who are their natural allies and who aren't.

To many have bought into the 'its us against the Man' narrative.

Real Hispanics are white—these ‘tards better understand that. My wife is Cuban—very white and almost Celtic-looking. Her parents are direct descendants of Spanish & French colonists to the island. I am Hispanic (from Spain—that means real Hispanic). Mom is from Bilbao.

These Mezo-Indians have no idea what the hell a “latino” is.
Here’s a hint....it ain’t somebody who speaks broken spanish and is of Mayan or Nahuatl origin.

Aren’t all Native Americans and thus by extension Hispanics technically Asian because their ancestors CAME from Asia over the Bering strait land bridge over 30,000 years ago??

Unless Hispanics is only people with white spanaird blood from the 15th century conquistadors in them???

I get so confused when they start trying to take a hetrogenous group of people who all live south of the rio grande all the way to tierra del feugo and trying to cram them all into the PC group called “Hispanic”.....

It is like Common Core has invaded Social Studies....

Most are from Cuba and other Caribbean nations.

I've heard that most Cubans won't deny a "mixing" of both.

Ask George Zimmerman. The only time he is counted as non-white is when liberals write breathless articles about how whites will no longer be a majority.

I had a friend who passed away, from Cuba, and warned me of this back in the 1980s when I lived in Miami. He absolutely despised liberals and especially those who told him that Cuba was a paradise of sorts. Incredible.

I worked with a Cuban man who had blue eyes, pale skin, and a slight southern accent.

These Mezo-Indians have no idea what the hell a “latino” is. Here’s a hint....it ain’t somebody who speaks broken spanish and is of Mayan or Nahuatl origin.

I believe they share a common ancestry with Asians.

Much asians culture demands are education, hard work and personal independence. Luis Alejo is a big fan of the so-called “leaders” who are working to destroy those things in African-American culture, and he, himself, wants to end those things in Latino culture.

And if the Asians won’t come around to his way of thinking, he wants no part of them.

Asians’ natural allies are those who allow unlimited immigration into the US, for family reunification, and employment of fellow ethnics, and inexpensive labor, and block voting.

Conservatives who put their hopes in Asians are those who put their hopes in Latino family values.

I married a man of Cuban descent.
I retained his name after the divorce,therefore,by having his last name I am a Latina,at least in the eyes of the govn’t and businesses.
All the mail,and even interpreters that I have access to says so.

Among the recently arrived you have a point. And among those who have been here awhile there are many who think those things you mentioned still matter and many who've bought into the racial grievance crap.

But the reality is they are as invested in this country as anyone who works & pays taxes and have much to lose in an increasingly socialized country.

What’s ironic is that the region represented by Assemblyman Alejo was where in 1941 and 1942 all Asians of Japanese heritage were rounded up and placed into concentration camps. This was done by the Democrat Roosevelt administration. Alejo is an idiot.

If any group of people is “Latino”, it is the Italians. After all, where did Latin come from? A mostly Indian Mexican or Central American who speaks Spanish is no more Latin than a Cherokee or Navajo who speaks English is Anglo-Saxon. Correctly speaking, Italians, Spaniards (except Basques), Portuguese, Frenchmen (except Bretons and Alsatians), Walloons, Romansch and Ladin speaking Swiss, and (arguably) Romanians, and their descendants outside Europe, are Latins.

The word “latino” has been totally hijacked to mean something completely different than what it really is.

>>Congratulations, Asians. You’ve become so successful that you’ve been granted “honorary white” status, which means that the grievance-mongers can hate you too.<<

It has been that way for at least 20 years. Asians have not been part of the EEO or AA group in job selection, promotion, nor College/Grad School admissions.

It sucks being a minority in a culture where hard work and studiousness are emphasized. Better to be in one where sloth, blame and low expectations are the norm.

It was true pre-Zimmerman (if you checked Hispanic on census forms there was a sub-question about color). Even more so now, since it is OK to discriminate against White Hispanics since Zimmerman.
