The National Council of La Raza is trying to pass themselves off as a Latino civil rights organization, but in reality they are what their name implies: Racist. They are firm believers in the colonization of the southwest United States. According to them the southwest was stolen from them and they are reclaiming it.
This band of brigands is now demanding that we and our representatives show them respect. As far as I’m concerned you don’t deserve it. Respect goes both ways and these people have shown none for us. They have no respect for our laws, language, property or culture. Here is a video of a La Raza advocate professing his love of country:
I want to start by saying that the young man who spoke a little while ago is one of my students! Our people will need strong leaders for years and years to come. (applause)
As a Revolutionary Mexican Organization here, we understand… it’s not just about Mexico, it’s about the global struggle against imperialism and capitalism! (applause)
We know that all of that is happening in the context of where we now stand is stolen, occupied Mexico! (applause)
The message that we bring is that we want to bring more of a revolutionary context to this. Why is that these people… these frail, racist white people want to keep us out of this country? It’s not simply because the color of our skin, it’s not simply that they just want to exploit us, let me tell you why: because on this planet right now, six billion people… at the forefront of the movement is La Raza (the race)…
…We have nine… nine… governments right now and they know something that a young Argentine named Che Guevara said… it was called the domino theory… and he knew that every single country would launch revolutionaries one after the other after the other!
So what do they fear? They know that every single country… they know that we no longer fall to these lies called borders… they know that the Salvadorans, the Guatemaleans, the Ecuadoreans, the Mexicanos, there’s no damn difference, we are all one people. So with that in mind, we see ourselves — all of us here — as The Northern Front of a Latin American Revolutionary Movement!
There are over 40 million of our people north of the Rio Grande. That means to them there are over 40 million potential revolutionaries north of the border! Inside the belly of the beast! So when you think why do they want to kick us, our people, out — that’s why! Because they know that we now know the truth, they know we are La Raza, we are professionals, we are educators, we are revolutionary students, what does that mean?
We are not just a regular culture any more! We are a culture of revolutionary spirit! And that’s the fear! (applause)
That being said, I want to leave you with this… as a revolutionary context, let’s be clear about one thing… our enemy is not the Minutemen… our enemy is not the Minutemen… because the Minutemen have not killed over 4,600 people at those borders… our enemy is the same enemy as Hugo Chavez has… our enemy is the same enemy that keeps Africa poor… our enemy is the same enemy that keeps Asia poor… our enemy is Capitalism and Imperialism! (applause)
I’ll finish with this… if we are serious about making change… if you are serious about making change, let me tell you… the struggle will go on for many more years after we leave UCLA… what you do 24 hours a day, as a professional revolutionary, that will lead our people to liberation!
All the award ceremonies and campaigns for respect will not erase your nefarious objectives. We know what you are and we will never forget it.
