Well, that’s the $64,000 question…

…isn’t it?

(O. Ricardo Pimentel) stated that there is only one race, the human race.

If that’s true, then what is the National Council of La Raza all about?

Yep. And the NAACP, the New Black Panther Party, MEChA, La Raza Unida, ad nauseum, ad infinitum. I suppose there are always going to be racial grievance-mongers around; it may well just be a fact of life at this point. Even so, it’s more than a bit disingenuous for O. Ricardo Pimentel to advocate for these groups and then out of the other side of his mouth say things like “there is only one race.” To be fair, many of these groups don’t even try to hide their racism — but they ought to be shouted down at every opportunity, and they’re not. And that says a lot about the state of race relations in this country, none of which is good.

    I hate to mention this, but he could be thinking similar to the Muslims, in that his group is the one (true) race, and everyone else is mudmen or devil-spawn. Most groups throughout history have done this to one degree or another, but only a few still cling tightly to it. As an example, almost every American Indian tribe refer to themselves as “The People”and whatever other tribes are around are “The Enemy”.
