- Stop 'La Raza' From Getting YOUR Taxpayer Dollars to Fund Racist Schools

Tens of millions of Americans filed their taxes this week. But few of them are aware that MILLIONS of their tax dollars fund the activities and agenda of a radical, racially-divisive organization that uses those funds against their values.

The National Council of La Raza - literally "The Race" - opposes commonsense immigration enforcement against illegal aliens, or even to secure the borders. They oppose efforts to stop illegal aliens from voting, or receiving driver's licenses, or welfare. Even though more than 75% of Americans disagree with La Raza on those issues, those same taxpayers FUND La Raza's activities - more than $5 million alone in the last year they filed a tax return.

But perhaps the most disturbing activities La Raza engages in is to support racially-divisive charter schools in nearly half the states of our nation. These schools utilize so-called "La Raza Studies", which teach the almost exclusively Hispanic students that American laws and culture are racist, and that the American Southwest was STOLEN from Mexico, and must one day be "reconquered" by Hispanics.

THIS MUST END. Defund La Raza is launching a major advertising and social media effort to expose La Raza to the vast majority of Americans who do not know their own taxes fund this radical group against their own interests and values.

Race-Baiting Mainstream Views.

There are many immigrant groups joined in the overall "La Raza" movement. The most prominent and mainstream organization is the National Council de La Raza -- the Council of "The Race". Most politicians and reporters see La Raza as no different from a "Latino" version of the Rotary Club. But there is no comparison. La Raza takes in more than $20 million every year. And it abuses its non-profit status to push a racially-divisive agenda that includes opposition to nearly ANY enforcement or restrictions against illegal aliens - frequently calling opponents "racists" for not kowtowing to their positions. For example, a former La Raza President said: “U.S. English is to Hispanics as the Ku Klux Klan is to blacks.” He was referring to U.S. English, the nation’s oldest, largest citizens’ action group dedicated to preserving the unifying role of the English language in the United States.

Advised Mexican Government on Lobbying Congress to Pass Amnesty

Similarly states, from Arizona to Georgia have been vilified as racist for merely trying to control the massive numbers of illegal immigrants undercutting American workers and increasing crime and welfare-use rates. This despite the fact that large majorities of Americans support such measures. La Raza even advised the Mexican government on how to lobby for illegal alien amnesty!

Yet - using this Hispanic race-card - "the Race" more often than not gets their way. Nowhere more evident than the millions it receives every year in government grants. In just the past three years alone, La Raza received nearly $12 million of Federal grants. Of this total nearly $1 million per year is used for "lobbying". In other words, YOUR government pays La Raza to lobby YOUR government to increase its grant money, nearly always in support of an agenda YOU oppose. Is this what you support?

“We don’t want to drink from a White water fountain"

But perhaps the most insidious activities subsidized by your tax dollars fund are the militant ethnic nationalist charter schools (at least $8 million in federal education grants). The schools include Aztlan Academy in Tucson, Ariz., the Mexicayotl Academy in Nogales, Ariz., Academia Cesar Chavez Charter School in St. Paul, Minn., and La Academia Semillas del Pueblo in Los Angeles, whose principal said: “We don’t want to drink from a White water fountain, we have our own wells and our natural reservoirs and our way of collecting rain in our aqueducts. We don’t need a White water fountain . . . ultimately the White way, the American way, the neo liberal, capitalist way of life will eventually lead to our own destruction.”

Students at Aztlan Academy in Tucson, AZ  learned that California, Arizona, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas are really "Aztlan", the ancient homeland of the Aztecs, and still rightfully belong to their descendants, people of indigenous Mexican heritage, according to a teacher who blew the whistle on the previously unknown curriculum. Students were told that few Mexicans took advanced high school courses because their “white teachers” didn’t believe they were capable and wanted to prevent them from getting ahead.

"Viva La Raza!"

These schools that teach racial separation and anti-American propaganda are supported by YOUR TAX DOLLARS via grants to La Raza. The curriculum engenders racial division, demeans America’s civil institutions, undermines public servants, discounted any virtues in western civilization and teaches disdain for American sovereignty. The United States itself is the enemy - a racist occupier of "Mexican land". And Mexican and racial superiority is encouraged, with often horrific results (see photo below).
