La Raza (Spanish for "The Race") has a motto. It says, “Por La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada". For those of you who do not read Spanish, this says translated, "For those of The Race, everything. For those not of The Race, nothing."
What do you think would happen to a white guy who stood up and said "For those of the White race, everything. For those not of the White race, nothing"? He would be dragged away in chains and charged with everything from hate speech to incitement to riot. Well then, why is it openly sanctioned for a person of Latino heritage to do so? Those people who belong to La Raza are simply against everything the United States stands for. They are not part of the Melting Pot, they do not want to assimilate. They do not want to be Americans.

There is a difference between appreciation for something versus pride in it.
What's to be proud of. God made me Hispanic, I didn't pick it!
I didn't accomplish it!
I can see being proud of an accomplishment, but race, no!
Maybe it's a way for a group to say, "We are a part of humanity and would like to be respected as such", and that's all it should be.
