Advocacy groups respond to Latino KKK allegations

Carolina advocate Andrea Bazán says she was stunned to hear conservatives compare the largest Hispanic advocacy group to the Ku Klux Klan.

Our colleagues at the (Raleigh) News & Observer report that the nomination of a Hispanic woman to the Supreme Court has brought allegations few thought possible. Some conservatives say Sonia Sotomayor's former membership with the National Council of La Raza should disqualify her for the high court.

La Raza is a Washington-based private non-profit. Its mission is to reduce poverty and discrimination and improve the opportunities for Hispanic Americans. It also aggressively supports immigration reform that includes a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and advocated for illegal immigrants to pay in-state college tuition fees.

Former Congressman Tom Tancredo called La Raza "a Latino KKK without the hoods and nooses." And conservative political commentator Rush Limbaugh compared Sotomayor to David Duke, who is a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

“It’s outrageous,” Bazán, who chair La Raza’s board, told the paper.

Much of the focus has been on the group’s name: La Raza, which can mean “the race”
Ron Woodard, who leads enforcement advocacy group N.C. Listen, said "They seem to play the race game and to be focused on their race because of their name."

State Sen. Phil Berger, an Eden Republican, who is sponsoring a bill that would bar illegal immigrants from community colleges, said he’s troubled by La Raza’s advocacy work for illegal immigrants.

"If she's a member of the group and she agrees with their policy positions, that would argue against her being on the Supreme Court," he said.

But others say these allegations against La Raza and Sotomayor are a subversive political strategy, much like was used against African American organizations during the civil rights movement.

Said Bazán: "I think we should be looking at the Sotomayor nomination and discussing her qualifications as a judge."

So what's the difference between La Raza, The Black Panthers, The Nation of Islam and the KKK?
Not really much when you boil them down to their core principals! Sure, the KKK has committed condemnable violent acts in the past but so have the Black Panthers, Nation of Islam and La Raza for that matter!
Any group that tries to advance one race over another is simply UN-AMERICAN!
America was founded on the PRINCIPALS of equal opportunity.
Sure, some of the founding fathers were slave owners and had racial beliefs but the fundamental principals they laid down in this nations charter would allow for the true meaning of "all men are created equal" to eventually come forth.
And it did!
By the 1970's all institutionalized racism and sexism had been abolished and we truly became the nation most of our forefathers dreamed of.
No, racism and the thoughts and beliefs in the hearts of the individual can NEVER be legislated away but the legal protections were in place and the opportunities envisioned by the forefathers had come to fruition despite those not socially unacceptable feelings of racism. Jim Crow died... good riddens!
So we all have a level playing field, right?
No, some groups believe their race is more entitled to the opportunities and entitlements this nation presents.
This spawned "affirmative action" which by all definition IS RACISM!
Sadly, it's some of the same people that advocated and struggled for EQUALITY that now demand concession, compensation, reparations and to be put above all others NOT because of the achievements, accomplishments or merits of the individual but because of victimization, discrimination, persecution or oppression of the race.
Same, we were at such a great point in history when the words of the great humanitarian MLK were finally coming true; "when a man is judged by the content of his character and not by the color of his skin"
Racism is racism despite what new name you give it.

LA RAZA? You are no better than the Black Panthers, KKK, NAZI's or any other racist group that tries to elevate one race over another!

EricX, have to agree. Black is a race, just like white and asian. But LaRaza is touting Hispanic as a race, which they are not--it is only a group that seems to support Spanish-speaking illegals. It irritates me to no end that they have managed to confuse so many terms used on TV--illegal alien is heard infrequently, while undocumented immigrant is becoming much more common in TV speech.
None of the groups you mentioned are viable representatives and should be condemned,but then there is the ACLU which will defend anyone's right to freedom of speech, no matter how treasonous it may be.
