Enough rambling for today... 7/14

Here is Hilary Clinton speaking to La Raza 

 As an ethnic activist I would point out that at 10:30 minutes in, she makes the usual hackneyed comparison between the wages of men and women.   But she's a little more specific and argues that it's outrageous that Hispanic women make less than White men.   I wonder how much they make less than Bill Clinton? 

In the context of the anti-White culture that Whites themselves have allowed to grow she's not talking about Chinese immigrants, not Jewish men, not Japanese men... no matter what the income disparities are for these other groups could be fraudulently drawn up.  Instead she's making fraudulent/feminist claims about  White men to an ethnic lobby group calling themselves the Race.* 

So apparently she needs to be arrested for possibly causing a hate crime?  (Never shout "White man!" in a crowded theater because then the White community will have to have a debate about the limits of free speech and what not.)

The third major national Hispanic organization, also founded in 1968, is National Council of La Raza. La raza literally means “the race” in Spanish. Hispanic activists often use this term for Hispanics as a group, just as blacks call other blacks “brothers.” Like the other groups, La Raza promotes official recognition of Spanish, increased immigration, preferences for Hispanics, and amnesty for illegal immigrants.
In 1994, La Raza gave its “Chicano of the Year” award to University of Texas professor Jose Angel Guitierrez, who has said, “We have got to eliminate the Gringo, and what I mean by that is that if the worse comes to the worst, we have got
to kill him.”40 Professor Gutierrez has also said: “We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. It’s a matter of time. The explosion is in our population. You must believe that you are entitled to govern . . . . Se estan cagando cabrones de miedo! (They [whites] are sh*tting in their pants with fear.) I love it!”41  [Not likely...  Lol.]   In 2004, at a Latino Civil Rights Summit, he added, “We are the future of America. . . . We’re going to Latinize this country.”42

A smaller group, the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund (now called LatinoJustice PRLDEF) attracted national attention when it became known that Sonia Sotomayor, originally from Puerto Rico and now a US Supreme Court justice, was an active board member from 1980 to 1992. Like other advocacy groups, it promoted the particularist interests of Puerto Ricans.43

Miss Sotomayor does not believe judges always can or should rise above personal circumstances. “Whether born from experience or inherent physiological or cultural differences,” she says, “our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging.” She has questioned whether impartiality that goes beyond sex or race “is possible in all, or even in most cases.” She claims that a parochial perspective leads to better decisions: “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”44

Side note, these minority/majority groups don't even necessarily like each other within socially constructed categories like "Hispanic."  In fact, some of them actually tend to hate the guts of other group of people within their own supposed group.  But for now, the usual applies...  America is perceived as an implicitly White majority/oppressor nation even if witless White people pretty much don't even know that they exist as a group and are perceived that way by other groups.  "Me just individual.  Me good individual, not racist...  me not even care if my family, kin and race lives on. Me, ma moo?"  Etc.   

One of the ironies about the way a lot of White people dismiss race and ethnicity with an airy wave of their hand or a DREAM  (What's next, a fantasy about unicorns?)  is that the man who gave them his own dream was trying to be a racial and ethnic activist for his own group.  And it's likely that if MLK had lived, he'd be standing right next to Jesse Jackson now.
