My quest for sustainability - starts with our own kitchen!

In light of the most recent immigration issues; I recently wrote on the UFW, and the NCLR FaceBook page. Sad to say that the comment was deleted so I wrote it again. Below is a copy.

"My comment was deleted. Hopefully you don't delete this copy of my previous message. He is a copy of a letter I sent

I want to send you a message.
We need a Raza Caucus. An organization to unite ALL e.g. the Chicano, Latino, Hispanic, Mexican, Central and South American origin living in the US. We need a political organization like the NAACP.

We currently have no political voice. (If we did, we wouldn't be in this situation.)

So I challenge you ALL to organize. The problem is that we all seem to want the spot light and for this reason, it has not happened,.. yet.


All of these mentioned terms (labels) are designed to divide us and keep us from uniting our voice, while we are continued to be victimize by political propaganda as issues of immigration are designed to polarize the nation.

We are use because we have no voice.

This will continue to happen every time the U.S. economy tanks. It happened in the 80's, the 90's, and now again. While states create unconstitutional law (Arizona SB1070) and Propositions( California Prop 187).

SO I BEG YOU! Please organize! Organizations like the UFW, and the NCLR, and all the dormant organizations MUST UNITE!

We need to organize our own kitchen FIRST!


A friend wrote a comment to my comment: Or you could even take it beyond race, and unite for human rights! Whites, blacks, and Asians support Hispanic causes too

She is right, but the cry here is for a Chicano/ Latino/ Hispanic/ Mexican, Central and South American voice.

For example when the nation talks about immigration, and immigration reform what do you think about? Be honest. The media, through fear propaganda, has created a a public impression, an instinct rather, to make you think about day labors or migrant worker. Right? Despite the fact that Asians, Europeans, and Canadians as well as Africans are also part of this issue, not just people migrating from Mexico.

Let me put it to you this way. When a big corporations like HP outsources jobs to ASIA ( which includes India),- which is middle class jobs - No one makes a stink about it; But take the jobs of janitors, meat packers, or a back breaking job as to harvesting crops and the whole nation gets up in flames. I guess I am just SICK OF IT!

If you would like to know more about me read my blog. I am in the alternative energy business. Solar, geothermal, and wind power. My quest for sustainability."

Peace and love to you all.

  1. This is great. I am for the fact that OUR Mexican brothers, who have a long history with The "Americas" , has been disregarded. Did they not pick our crops, build and clean our houses, and serve us food in a land thought to be theirs, too? I find the Mexican American's being the most efficiant in more than the ways that the GOP continuously badgers about. In fact because they lost the Presidential elections, (yes ever since then) they have made their money on talk shows BASHING THE PRESIDENT. I may not agree with all of the GOP , nor Dem policies. But what do you pick from the worst of 2 EVILS? I tend to pick a GOOD one...if there is such a thing. This IS for a certainty, what the propaganda would make you believe. Thank you my friend and brother in spirit.
