Largest Latino Rights Group, National Council Of La Raza Condemns NOM’s Race Baiting Strategy

“The cravenness on display from NOM is reminiscent of another bastion of intolerance, the anti-immigrant movement. They too have enough political savvy to realize that first, Latinos are an important demographic and voting block and second, that movements built on bigotry and intolerance are most successful when their shameful agenda stays hidden from the public. If NOM had stopped its indefatigable scheming for just a moment to learn something about our community, this diabolical plan would never have been hatched.

First, not all Latinos are immigrants. Second, Latino immigrants welcome integration into American society. Third, Latinos are not foolish enough to believe that NOM has our best interests at heart. And, fourth, despite what NOM may think, the Latino community overwhelmingly supports LGBT equality. The Movement Advancement Project released research recently that showed that 74 percent of Latinos “support marriage or marriage-like legal recognition for gay and lesbian couples.” – Statement from The National Council Of LaRaza the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States via Think Progress

BRAVO!
