Are the Brown Berets and La Raza movment racist?

1st off, I'm not Don J... I'm just replying to your post Chicano? Go to Mexico and tell a Mexican you're Chicano, they are going to laugh in your face and call you Pocho. My social movement doesn't need "La Raza" telling me I'm a Chicano or that I need to be something I'm not. Not this is just me, all the chicanos I've met were usually some cholo burn outs. I'm pretty sure they are out there but I've yet to meet a professional who identifies as a chicano. Those who come close look like some old pachuco My social movement is my family... a proud, non racist, loves our culture and traditions famiky. We have never felt the need to promote our Raza, people know who we are and that's it. Just don't ruin it for us  (Jun 5, 2014 | post #121)

Drug dealer, gang member, welfare recipient, McDonald's worker, pregnant teen, high school drop out... These are things people think of when they hear Mexican. I'm not being an A-hole or a racists, I'm just speaking the truth. You may not like to hear it. These stereotypes and rooted with some truths.  (Jun 5, 2014 | post #5003)

Sorry bud I don't like to get gapped like you do. But feel free to let the UCLA Bruin "alternative thinking" committee have their way with you ;)  (May 23, 2014 | post #4994)

Protest against police in Salinas turns violent

Article states: "Protesters were rallying against the three fatal officer-involved shootings in Salinas this year..." I wonder why people in Salinas protest all the gang violence like they are so readily to do with the cops. The article goes on to say that protesters think police shootings are racially motivated... race card? What do you expect when most of the crime in Salinas is cause by Hispanics. Remember, don't put yourself in a situation where you can get shot by police.  (May 22, 2014 | post #1)

Interesting... I've always wondered why young Hispanics here California glorify Aztec culture but never really learn or care to learn their history or even that of Mexico's. They are quick to put on a Aztec calendar T-shirt, but know nothing about it, to them it's just cool. Kinda like some white folks that get dream catcher tattoos.  (May 18, 2014 | post #4984)

Aren't you behind a screen yourself? BMW are going to tell the all the Mexicans with Spanish last name to go back to Spain? You know those dirty Spanish raped and force Catholicism on the Beloved Aztecs. Kinda like the white folks did onto the native Americans  (May 15, 2014 | post #4977)

And yes all those celebrations fall in the same box. But Who is saying you can't celebrate these days? Just stating that it's not the norm (or strange) for a Mexican girl to wave an Irish flag with the same meaning that the Mexican girl waving a Mexican flag. And BTW, I am Mexican... makes no difference though just like your statement that you're not.  (May 15, 2014 | post #4976)

Yes I know, but why would she be waving an Irish flag? Not saying she can't, but just sounds weird.... like saying an Irish dude waving a Mexican flag on Cinco De Mayo.  (May 15, 2014 | post #4972)

Why would a Mexican girl wave an Irish flag?  (May 13, 2014 | post #4970)

Deport anybody of ANY ethnicity that gets offended by the American flag. It's not about race or ethnicity you dumb ass, it's about those who disrespect our borders, hate, and leach off of America. Deport those, Deport the racist basterds as well. There are immigrants of every ethnicity that love and respect this country and are proud to be called (insert ethnicity) - American. I am Mexican - American.  (May 2, 2014 | post #4958)

Home owners who rent should be held responsible for tenants

Why do people F-up the parking lot in the first place? And just to add on to my previous post, by no means am I calling poor people lazy... Some people have it tough but they do the right thing. I'm calling those filthy animals that don't know how to pick up after themselves and expect other to do it for them, I'm calling them lazy. And if you want to defend their behavior go right ahead, you're probably one of them.  (May 1, 2014 | post #11)

First off, I'm not saying slum lords don't exist because they do. But you are talking about a take care of my filthy lifestyle, rather than simple responsibilities. My great grandmother in Mexico used to live in an old little house with dirt floors (not making this up), and she used to sweep those floors every day and clean up the place. She would tell us, "just because you were poor didn't mean you had to live like animals". Yes, a land lord has responsibilities, but there's something wrong with a person that can't put a dirty diaper or a McDonald's bag in the trash. If someone is that lazy that they can't pick up after themselves and expect someone else to do it for them... maybe that's the reason they live in the hood and not in a better place. But I guess dependency is most of these people want... nothing you want to teach your children about. It amazes me that you talk about respect yet you have no problem with people littering... There is absolutely no reason to litter or trash up a parking lot or place. LAZY LAZY DISRESPECTFUL PEOPLE.  (May 1, 2014 | post #10)
