I have come to the conclusion after covering illegal immigration for such a long time and looking around at things that yes, groups like La Raza and the NAACP exist with one of their primary goals as being to actually foment hate and racism. They continuously point out race, they continuously demand only rights and privileges that only people of their race receive.
Now most Americans are level headed thinkers who don't focus on race on a daily basis. They don't sit around and talk about race no matter what their race is, however over the last few years I have heard them grumbling. I have heard them exclaim outrage at what is going on in this country. These normal, everyday people are being forced to recognize race by these obviously racist organizations. While these groups claim they are simply seeking equality and "color blindness", nothing could be further from the truth. They bring it up constantly and continuously point out the differences in races. They play the race card at every turn.
Now I haven't fallen for their insidious trap. I realize that there are just as many Hispanic, Black, Asian and White people who are for an America that obeys the laws and where everyone has an opportunity. There are many that are starting to get very angry though. They are becoming more racist and actually hateful where they were not before.
The more these groups make demands, like amnesty for illegal aliens simply because they are Hispanic illegal aliens, or make demands that Black kids with grades lower than Asian kids be admitted to schools ahead of Asians simply for the sake of "diversity", the more people they are actually turning against each other.
And that is their plan!
Without division between races these people are out of a job. They are profiting from hate that they are creating.
This country is about opportunity. It is for the opportunity of all who obey the law to have a chance at success. These groups in my opinion are what are going to cause the downfall of our great country.
And before you think I've forgotten about the religious wedges being forced on us by groups like CAIR, I have not. They are just as guilty of turning normal law abiding and hard working citizens of this country against people of their religion by their ridiculous demands of special treatment. It doesn't matter which religion we are talking about, when you make special demands that others don't receive you are pissing people off.
For those citizens out there who may be white and reading this and agreeing, please take a minute to think on this before you fall for these groups ploy to get you to hate. Go read my entry on whether you should join a white supremacist group. These groups want you to hate so they can point their finger and say "see there is racism and hate and it has always existed" where it previously had not.
They are the cause of hate and racism and we must fight them all at every turn!

My wife, a legal Korean immigrant, says that everyone is racist; that it is only natural.
It was observed by the actors on the set of the original "Planet of the Apes" that actors in orangatan, chimp, and gorilla costumes each congregated with those in the same costume.
People with similar social and ethnic backgrounds seem to gravitate to their own kind; this is not an indicator of sexism or racism, despite this we can treat others fairly.
The key is to acknowledge and own it by compensating and doing the fair and right thing. Equal treatment.
Affirmative action is sexist and racist since it discriminates against white males.
Taxpayer funded muslim footbaths? No. We have a separation of church and state. If it is wrong to have the taxpayer fund the christian religion is equally wrong to fund the muslim religion.
These groups seem to take the side of the perceived "underdog" instead of basing their positions on principles of equality and fairness, or in the case of illegal aliens, national sovereignty.

Ken Pope, the problem with these groups is that they are premised on the idea that America is racist. That is false. Compare us with, say, Korea. If you are not Korean and had a child with your wife, he or she would really know about legal discrimination.
People who see disparity and say it is proof that America is racist, forget to look at culture. Cultural diversity is real. Some groups do more homework than others. By blaming society, we fail to look at culture. We divide ourselves and can make no real progress via honest talk.
In the Robber's Cave experiment they found that summer camp groups of even the same demographic and racial background divide into competing groups. How did they put them back together again? They got them working together on a commmon task they could not solve alone (pushing a bus to a shop). Our appropriate goal is the one is working towards saving Western Civilization. If you are a citizen you should be concerned with what is good for America.
Problem is with these groups, they are only concerned with what is good for their group. They often define their demands within the assumption that they are victims. We need to all be on the same side. Ben Franklin said before the War, "We must all hang together, or we will surely hang separately."

Works well in both the public and private sector. As old as man, and a proven sales technique. Identify (or create) a problem and then offer yourself as the solution. Once you hook the customer, you give them a stake in whatever you are selling. Acolytes or rubes as needed. Demonize the competition as necessary to preserve profits or consolidate power. Carpetbaggers don't usually last very long. Politics and religions, with no tangible product to scrutinize, hang on a little longer. Digger is right, it is an insidious trap, one that plays well in a PC culture. The real sources of hate, intolerance and racism, need to have the light of the truth laid upon them 'at every turn'.

"While these groups claim they are simply seeking equality and "color blindness", nothing could be further from the truth. They bring it up constantly and continuously point out the differences in races. They play the race card at every turn."
Digger, you are the man! Recently the Supreme Court made a ruling and refused to take race into account; the liberal race baiters (who claim to be the principled democrats) went ballistic.
Affirmative action promotes the hiring of women and minorities; this excludes one group, white males. A very racist stand.
You are also correct about fomenting racist thoughts where there were none before. This is a result of our human defense mechanism assessing we are under unfair attack. Continue to stick to the high road, it will all work out.
I am a recovering democrat. RE Joe Horn; Rev Al, where are you, you're late. Time to grab your bullhorn and park outside Joe Horn's house, stirring up racial conflict while claiming you are making things better. Be sure to call CNN.

Someone finally said it.
How many are actually paying attention to this?
There are African-Americans, Mexican-Americans,
Asian-Americans, Arab-Americans, Native-Americans, etc.
Why cant they just be Americans? Or at least be Americans first?
You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.
You Call me "White boy," "Cracker," "Honkey,"
…..And that's OK.
But when I call you, Ni99er, Kike, Towel head, Sand-ni99er, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink
…..You call me a racist.
You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you.
…..So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day. You have Black History Month. You have Cesar Chavez Day. You Have Yom Hashoah You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi You have the NAACP.
You have BET.
If we had WET (White Entertainment Television)
…..We'd be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day
…..You would call us racists.
If we had White History Month
…..We'd be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to "advance" OUR lives ..
…..We'd be racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we have just the plain Chamber of Commerce
I Wonder who pays for that?
If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships
..... You know we'd be racists.
There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US , yet if there were "White colleges"
…..THAT would be a racist college.
In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching
For your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights,
…..You would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride ..
…..You call us racists.
You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society
…..You call him a racist.
I am proud.
…..But, you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists?
