The scary part is, I would bet that these are the common themes and beliefs being perpetuated in the homes of many Latinos. These ideas didn't just come into the classes out of thin air. ...
I would just like to jump in for a second and say that no, this is not in fact what goes on in Latino homes. I am Puerto Rican ( granted I am automatically an American citizen by birth) However, I can assure you that we are not plotting to take away land that was so obviously hard won. I feel slightly offended that you would blanket all Latinos when then is a minority view. Much like the view that everyone not of the Caucasian race should go back to where they came from ( rofl)
As for assimilating, I don't know where you are from exactly, but around here everyone gets along with everyone. We retain our old culture, but we can branch out into society. Maybe you should hang around more positive people than the gang members you must have had a run in with. Also, the whole dey tuk ur jobs is getting really old. Especially since I hardly think you were washing dishes or picking fruit from fields.

I have to agree with basically everyone who has replied so far but I do have to ask one very compelling question which, I do know the answer to, but would like to point out the hypocrisy.
If this was reversed and it was a Caucasian cultures study which said the exact same thing (just fixed to fit the culture of course) would there be as little reporting about the story as this, or would there be a national uproar?
Miguel Perez, a La Raza spokesman at Cal State-Northridge, says, “The ultimate ideology is the liberation of Aztlan. Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established, ethnic cleansing would commence: Non-Chicanos would have to be expelled — opposition groups would be quashed because you have to keep power.”
“This is war!” claims Phoenix student Aldemar Cruz. “Republicans may have stopped the DREAM Act, but they won’t prevent La Reconquista from happening. “White people, watch out!”
For the past several years in Arizona, the Tucson Unified School District has spent millions of dollars on its “Mexican-American Studies” studies curriculum. These programs are designed to teach students in the district that America is an evil, racist empire and that the American Southwest is really Aztlan—the ancestral home of the Aztecs that rightfully belongs to Mexico. The classes were so racist that one of the teachers in the program, John Ward, wrote in 2008 that “the basic theme of the curriculum was that Mexican-Americans were and continue to be victims of a racist American society driven by the interests of middle and upper-class whites.” The classes, many of which are taught by unlicensed teachers, also preached revolution against the U.S. and praised Che Guevara and other Latino revolutionaries.
On April 26, 2011, the TUSD board of governors was scheduled to have a public meeting about the Raza Studies program and how to design it in accordance with HB 2281. The meeting had to be canceled, however, after dozens of Raza Studies students stormed the meeting room, chained themselves to the board members’ chairs, chanted pro-Mexican slogans and pounded tables. Police stood by and did nothing. One Latino school board meeting called it a, “peaceful demonstration.”
Image a crowd of white protesters storming a School Board meeting, removing board members from the table, chaining themselves to the chairs, pounding the tables, shouting thru megaphones and creating an overall atmosphere of chaos and intimidation. THE POLICE WOULD HAVE MOVED IN IMMEDIATELY TO ARREST THEM AND AND EVERY MAJOR NEWSPAPER IN AMERICA WOULD HAVE CARRIED A FRONT PAGE STORY OF THE RACIST WHITE MOB. Patriots, we are losing our country. America Awake!
When I raised these concerns, I was told that I was a “racist,” despite being Hispanic. Acknowledging my heritage, the Raza studies staff also informed me that I was a vendido, the Spanish term for "Sellout"
The basic theme of the curriculum was that Mexican-Americans were and continue to be victims of a racist American society driven by the interests of middle and upper-class whites. In this narrative, whites are able to maintain their influence only if minorities are held down. Thus, social, political and economic events in America must be understood through this lens.
I was assigned to be a “teacher of record” because some members of the Raza studies staff lacked teaching certificates. It was a convenient way of circumventing the rules.
Someone let me know if I've missed some information and therefore, talking out my arse.
OK, I would have to surmise from your post you didn't read the articles thomasjeffersonclubblog.wordpress.com...

This is Not How You Spend Tax Payers Money in Public Schools, at lest most people think that way who has kids and pay taxes? You want to teach a kid about La Raza, fine do it at home.
I'd like Very Much For You To Tell Me How The Word Marijuana Make Hispanics Bad? That's B.S.
Here is my thoughts on the word Marijuana, Marijuana is derived from the mexican word maraguanquo which means "intoxicating plant". True or Not?
