La Raza

The National Council of La Raza - NCLR - was established in 1968 as the Southwest Council of La Raza. La Raza puts on a respectable front but its true agenda is based on racism and ethnic superiority. La Raza plays the victim role to the max. La Raza means ‘The Race.’ 

The concept of La Raza can be traced to the ideas of Mexican ‘philosopher’ Jose Vasconcelos. Vasconcelos argued that the mixture of Spanish and Indian races created a superior race. He developed the theory of la raza cosmica - The Cosmic People.(1) Vasconcelos, who became a fascist and Jew hater in WW2, engaged in stereotyping various races in developing his own racist theory. Vasconcelos beliefs have some similarities with the German and Japanese belief in a super race prior to WW2.

Vasconcelos: “It seems as if God Himself guided the steps of the Anglo-Saxon cause. . .”(2) “Spanish colonization created mixed races, this signals its character, fixes its responsibility, and defines its future.(2) “Its predestination obeys the design of constituting the cradle of a fifth race. . .”(2) “The dispersion will come to an end on American soil;”(2) “The so-called Latin peoples ... are the ones called upon to consummate this mission. . .”(2) “. . .the Anglo-Saxons are gradually becoming more a part of yesterday.”(2) “We in America shall arrive, before any other part of the world, at the creation of a new race fashioned out of the treasures of all the previous ones: The final race, the cosmic race.”(2) About 60% of Mexicans are Mestizos - a mixture of indigenous and European peoples. Mexico’s indigenous American Indians (Amerindians) are about 30% and Mexicans who are 100% Spanish (“whites”) are about 10%  of the total population. 

NCLR supports a network of charter schools across the United States.  A number of these charter schools openly advocate ethnic separatism and anti-American, anti-white attitudes. One example is La Academia Semillas del Pueblo in Los Angeles which engages in Indigenous Education: “Semillas students receive instruction in three languages: English, Spanish, and Nahuatl (the indigenous language of Mexico)...” “HUEHUETLAMACHILISTLE, in Nahuatl, is how Semillas refers to Aztec cultural, environmental, historic and cosmic knowledge systems. Huehuetlamachilistle names the cosmovision or as best translated into English the wisdom about the universe and the relations among all that exists within it as experienced over time by Peoples indigenous to

North America.” “In addition to a core expertise on Aztec culture, our educators have learned from the elders and oral traditions of the Haudenosaunee Confederation of Nations, the Zuni Pueblo, the Quiche Maya, and the Inca of Ecuador, all of which have struggled to straddle the challenge of ancient memory and modern reality.”(3)

Nahuati was the Aztec language, not Mexico's. La Raza seems to have forgotten that the Spanish destroyed the Aztec, Mayan and Inca empires.

La Raza claims discrimination severely limits the economic and social opportunities available to Hispanic Americans. This is only true if you are here illegally. La Raza demands illegals be eligible for drivers licences(5), to open bank accounts, rent an apartment, etc.

In 2002, NCLR, in partnership with Freddie Mac, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and US Bank, launched En Su Casa to serve the low- to moderate income market.(6) La Raza helped cause the crash of the housing market in 2008 due to all the subprime loans issued to low income Mexican Americans.

La Raza opposes enforcement of “E-Verify” to determine if a job applicant is in the US illegally. La Raza opposes all laws that would require proof of eligibility to vote.(9) LaRaza opposes the 287(g) program, where state and local police are trained to enforce federal immigration laws.(7)

La Raza claims Latino youth are unfairly targeted by law enforcement and supported Senate bill S. 678 and House bill HR 6029. Introduced in 2009, this bill would reduce so called Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC). States would be required to follow a series of five steps to identify and reduce the ‘disproportionate’ contact of minority youth with the juvenile justice system. States would be required to develop plans to provide alternatives to detention that are culturally and linguistically competent.(8) Although La Raza denies it, La Raza wants arrest quotas to hide the fact that so many Latino youth are criminals. La Raza is blame shifting for the character defects of criminal Latinos.

NCLR opposed President Bush’s signing of the “Secure Fence Act of 2006,” which authorized the construction of 700 miles of new fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border. La Raza used fear and inaccurate claims against the bill.(9) La Raza also opposed a bill to prohibit unauthorized tunnels between the US and Mexico.(9)

In 2007, NCLR opposed the state of Oklahoma’s tough, enforcement-first immigration laws, which cut off welfare benefits to illegal aliens, stiffened sanctions against employers who hired illegals, and strengthened cooperation and information-sharing between local and federal authorities.(10)

La Raza opposed Proposition 187 in California in 1994, where the state was spending over $3 BILLION a year in aid to illegal aliens. Proposition 187 had this introduction on the ballot: “The People of California find and declare as follows: That they have suffered and are suffering economic hardship caused by the presence of illegal immigrants in this state. That they have suffered and are suffering personal injury and damage caused by the criminal conduct of illegal immigrants in this state. That they have a right to the protection of their government from any person or persons entering this country unlawfully.” Proposition 187 passed by 59 to 41 percent but was eventually declared unconstitutional by liberal judges after being challenged in court by La Raza, the morally clueless Clinton administration and other anti-American groups. Clinton was more interested in getting more voters for the Democratic party then doing what was right. 

On July 13, 2003 at the La Raza 2003 Annual Conference, Raul Yzaguirre, the former racist President of La Raza said: “I'm going to ask you to think back 10 years. Do you remember the vicious anti immigrant attacks in the mid 1990's? Proposition 187 in California and similar proposals elsewhere were ugly efforts to hurt the Latino community. They were direct and blatant attacks.”  

La Raza opposed Arizona’s law SB 1070 which was intended to give the police the power to enforce immigration law that Obama refuses to enforce. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer attacked critics of the bill. "We in Arizona have been more than patient waiting for Washington to act," Brewer said after signing the law. The law represents another tool for the state to "work to solve a crisis we did not create and the federal government has refused to fix - the crisis caused by illegal immigration along Arizona's porous border.”(11)

La Raza demands amnesty for 12 million illegals now in the country. The current racist president, Janet Murguia, spoke to the Chicano Federation Luncheon on May 6, 2005 and demanded “A path to legal status for the immigrants who are here and whose hard work does so much to sustain this country. It’s not an amnesty - our friends and neighbors don’t need to be “pardoned”. We need to get people their green cards and eventually on a path to citizenship.”(12) Notice she said illegals don’t need pardoned.

La La Raza is not troubled that the Mexican parents of 50,000 kids just dumped their kids across the border in the US. Then La Raza blames Americans for not being compassionate. The children should be sent back to Mexico - to their parents.(13)


La Raza pays lip service to upholding immigration law but opposes deportations and wants amnesty. Demanding others obey the law, La Raza makes endless excuses to justify illegal immigration, putting illegals above the law. La Raza demands that illegals be treated as if they are legal and ignores the fact that there is a border between the US and Mexico. La Raza supporters are racists, but are so closed minded they don’t even know it. Claiming to be righteous, they are the ultimate hypocrites.
