This poor woman seems to despise her European heritage. She is clearly not a pure Native American. Like the majority of Mexicans, she has Spanish
heritage too. Sure, she may not be as "white" as Ricky Ricardo, but if I was to guess, she might have more in common with "whites" who are
Latino, than the browner people she identifies with, if those brown people happened to be "Anglo".
So naturally, the culture / language plays into it even more than race it would seem, but the folks who get into this sort of thing, are not going to
get real intellectual and analyze it.
The real issue is always that of IDENTITY, not "racism" (that's one of "their" divisive terms). Whether this woman's grandfather was a white
plantation owner, or not, makes no difference to her now. She identifies with "La Raza", and that's what's important to her. She has a
cause, perhaps she feels there is injustice, etc.
And all along, our masters play these people, over and over again. If a people can identify themselves in some way as "separate", then that
identity can (and probably will) be used to "divide and conquer".
This certainly took place with American blacks in the 1960's. Sure, there was manifest injustice, but instead of the more positive peaceful
approach, the Black identity was effectively turned against the nation, and themselves, and many suffered (even died) for it. To this day, that
terrible experience "colors" race relations. The only good thing seems to be that Jews are no longer outwardly in charge of the NAACP. Yeah, it
was about time a black was allowed in charge of a "black" organization!
If anyone wonders "why" our masters operate this way, it's always the same. To push an agenda, one that we seldom have a clue about, until the
dust settles, long after the fact.
In this context, I wonder what the "bigger picture" might be, with these Latino groups, such as the "brown berets", or La Raza?
