“This is an unprecedented group of individuals who have come together because they see a need in our country,” said LULAC National President Margaret Moran. “We are marching with trade unions, human and civil rights organizations, youth, students, faith groups, Latinos, African American, Jewish, Native American, Asian American and everyone who have a stake in this fight for a better quality of life. We all want our fundamental right to the American dream. We are holding our elected officials accountable.” To highlight the urgency of the One Nation Working Together movement, consider the figures released by the US Census Bureau yesterday showing that one in seven Americans – that’s 45.6 million people – lives in poverty in the United States. This is the third consecutive year of increases. African Americans saw an increase from 24.7% to 25.85%, and Hispanics living in poverty jumped from 23.2% to 25.3%.
I've got news for you lady, there is no fundamental right to the American dream. Look closely, it is the right to pursue happiness. PURSUE, not DEMAND. Nowhere in any of the documents does it say you have the right to demand anything. You are free to pursue your American dream, but ask those who have achieved it, you do not get it by marching down streets and making demands. I suggest you close that rather large mouth of yours, get off your duff and get to work yourself. Nobody is going to give you a thing, if you want it, earn it.
I must admit I almost fell off my chair when I read that you would like to "curb re-segregation attempts" in this country. Although they say that recognizing that you have a problem is the first step to recovery. I am glad you are going to renounce your racist ways that cause you to segregate yourself away from the rest of society. That is truly the first step. Congratulations for recognizing it.
How about you ask your Raza friends if they would consider putting a stop to the racial cleansing going on in Los Angeles? You must admit, that isn't very nice.
|Showing Their Respect - After The One Nation Rally - Will be cleaned up at taxpayer's expense? By same union workers who made mess?|
|Together, we make one god-awful mess! Sounds about right to me...as a campaign slogan|
|Just in case you had any doubt about who shows up to these gatherings - if only we could send them to North Korea to live in peace and liberty...|
Wait, what's the secret code again? Por La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada....what's that mean? something about for the race everything, nothing for anybody else?
Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (MEChA) In March of 1969, at Denver, Colorado the Crusade for Justice organized the National Chicano Youth Conference that drafted the basic premises for the Chicana/Chicano Movement in El Plan de Aztlán (EPA). A synopsis of El Plan stipulates:
- 1) We are Chicanas and Chicanos of Aztlán reclaiming the land of our birth (Chicana/Chicano Nation);
- 2) Aztlán belongs to indigenous people, who are sovereign and not subject to a foreign culture;
- 3) We are a union of free pueblos forming a bronze (Chicana/Chicano) Nation;
- 4) Chicano nationalism, as the key to mobilization and organization, is the common denominator to bring consensus to the Chicana/Chicano Movement;
- 5) Cultural values strengthen our identity as La Familia de La Raza; and
- 6) EPA, as a basic plan of Chicana/Chicano liberation, sought the formation of an independent national political party that would represent the sentiments of the Chicana/Chicano community.
