Sotomayors membership in 'La Raza' ('The Race) is called a 'Latino KKK' by Rep. Tom Tancredo.
La Raza was instrumental in organizing all those protests you saw recently ... all those Mexican flags marching through America's streets. (funny,
when the media pointed out all the Mexican flags, then suddenly they became American flags a day or so later
Former Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Co, lashed out at Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor Thursday for her remarks suggesting "wise Latinas" are
better decision makers than white men.
Appearing on CNN, Tacredo, known mainly for his staunch opposition to giving illegal aliens amnesty and citizenship rights, talked about Sotomayor's
activism on behalf of La Raza, an immigrant rights group whose name translates literally to "The Race." He called it a "a Latino KKK without the
hoods or the nooses."
This is supposedly their motto. However, I have also found info saying that they disclaim it. Perhaps it was and now isn't? I'm not sure, but
I'm letting you know anyways -
"Por La Raza Todo, Fuera de La Raza Nada."
"For the Race, Everything; Outside the Race, Nothing."

The Truth About La Raza ('The Race')
The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) – the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States – works to
improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans. Through its network of nearly 300 affiliated community-based organizations (CBOs), NCLR reaches millions
of Hispanics each year in 41 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. To achieve its mission, NCLR conducts applied research, policy
analysis, and advocacy, ]providing a Latino perspective in five key areas – assets/investments, civil rights/immigration, education, employment and
economic status, and health. In addition, it provides capacity-building assistance to its Affiliates who work at the state and local level to advance
opportunities for individuals and families.
Founded in 1968, NCLR is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan, tax-exempt organization headquartered in Washington, DC. NCLR serves all Hispanic
subgroups in all regions of the country and has operations in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, Sacramento, San Antonio, and San Juan,
Interesting blog with info on La Raza
The Council of La Raza succeeded in having itself added to congressional hearings by Republican House and Senate leaders. And an anonymous senator
even gave the Council of La Raza an extra $4 million in earmarked taxpayer money, supposedly for "housing reform," while La Raza continues to
lobby the Senate for virtual open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens - the real agenda of the La Raza movement, the agenda that led to those
thousands of illegal immigrants in the streets of American cities, waving Mexican flags, brazenly defying our laws, and demanding concessions.
Key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan
(MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a
racist nation out of the American West.
National Council of La Raza and 'La Raza' are used interchangeably.
I'm not sure if they are the same group. Here's more ...

NCLR also supports the DREAM Act, which is designed to allow illegal aliens to attend college at the reduced tuition rates normally reserved
for in-state legal residents
promote "reform" that would give illegal immigrants full access to taxpayer-funded health care services.
It supports voting rights for illegal aliens.
It opposes the Aviation Transportation and Security Act requiring that all airport baggage screeners be U.S. citizens.
La Raza and La Raza Unido ... Same group ??? I'm looking it up ....

The spirit and force of La Raza Unida was truly embodied in Texas under the leadership of Jose Angel Gutierrez, a student and [the] President of
the Mexican American Youth Organization." Gutierrez, an open borders advocate who founded La Raza Unida, has stated, "We have an aging white
America ... They are dying. ... They are sh---ing in their pants with fear! I love it! ... We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by
that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him."
The group further seeks what it calls "fair taxes for all," a social justice plan for the redistribution of wealth via tax hikes for higher
earners and an expanded welfare state. Moreover, La Raza Unida asserts that the U.S. government should "drastically reduce the amount of taxes
used to fund military purposes," and calls for "an end to the militarization of society, including the borders."
Redistribution of wealth ... Sound familiar??
