Dear Gabachos, (white patriots and colonized hispanics)

We need more of these schools to teach the history of California and the open borders that allowed
white immigrants to come and abuse
mexican hospitality.

We should have built walls and assigned border agents to keep out
white folks.

Unfortunately, we now have overcrowding, a polluted landscape, greedy capitalists,
and the biggest prison system in the world.

But there is hope. Mexicans are once again growing in numbers since we are a passionate people who love to love.

Jose Huizar will have to answer to these claims. This school is in El Sereno his district. What are the qualifications of this racist principal? I can imagine th threats residents would have had if they tried to stop this school. I can't believe the crap they teach these kids. Goes back to the days of "Whites only" Negroes only" times.

Dear Wannabe Archie,

Bush and MECHA are conspiring?

Your ignorance must be blissful to incriminate yourself in public.

Do you have any idea what MECHA is about?

And no we don't hate white people.

As an acculturated Mexican-American, I value the freedom that has been given to me by those that offered it, by birth right and by earning it. We have to come to terms and know that what happened in the past is history, so stop with the chants of "we didn't cross the borders.." and so on. Bottom line is grow up, reach out to main stream america and embrace it as well as your heritage. Oh and one more thing, this is not Aztlan, if you study your pre-columbian history, that area is now known as Sinaloa. They have that posted in the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City, you would know if you have been there. And one more thing to those of ASSTLAN, "Baja le a los huevos que se amarilla el pan"

Edward Murguia wrote in 1975 in his book "Assimilation, Colonialism and the Mexican American People", that in order for Mexican immigrants to succeed in the U.S., some forms of assimilation of U.S. culture is necessary. This still holds true today and always will.

It is also necessary for them to retain their cultural beliefs, and there are many positive examples of U.S. acceptance and assimilation of of Mexican culture.

But to ignore U.S. culture while living in the U.S. is a path to failure.

Archie is right, for the first time ever.

What I think he's getting at is that they're conspiring in the sense that both sides have something to gain from it win or lose. It's a win-win for both of them. Same thing like Osama Bin Laden and the who now our biggest enemy was our closesy ally. (Iran-Contra)

MEChAnistas want their voz to be heard and notice all of a sudden that they want these things during election years. And when the elections are over they say NOTHING.

Because BUSH has done nothing about illegals in fact he's helping them into the country and his close, very close alligence to Fox makes it even more suspicious.
Because all of these illegals represent "family values" and remember the way Bush used his latino Nephew during the 2000 Republican convention, one of the key factors that lead to him to win.

Given the previous Republican GOP pandering with issues like Gay Rights and Abortion when they become center stage every 2 years, during election years.

So the middle of the road/on the fence voters who by the way listens and knee-jerks about it that's one of many reasons why the Repoopublicans are still in power.

But these Republicans takes advantage of these illegals so they can fund more $$$ into their elections.

Was ignoring Mexican culture while living in Mexican California & Texas a path to failure for the white immigrants that invaded these lands in the early to mid 1800's? History is just repeating itself, but in a different shade.

I would love to send my children to a school where they are not treated as second class citizens, no matter how many degrees I have or how much money I make.

Keep up the good work Marcos Aguilar, don't ever compromise. Our culture's survival is at stake.

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A local radio reporter was assaulted today while
leaving a Los Angeles charter school that his station has said imparts
separatist ethics, a station official said.

The reporter, Sandy Wells of KABC radio, was not hurt, said station
spokesman Steve Sheldon.

Wells was leaving the campus of Academia Semillas Del Pueblo, 4736
Huntington Drive, after interviewing the principal when a car came around the corner, jumped the curb and the driver tried to run him down, Sheldon said.

Wells managed to dodge the car, but the driver, a man who appeared to be in
his mid-20s, got out and tackled him, taking away his tape recorder, he said.

The incident was reported to police, Sheldon said, adding that it is believed to be linked to the station's reporting on the school.

The Los Angeles Unified School District said it would issue a statement on the assault later in the day.

Yeah, anything not fitting nicely into the white definition of objectivity is rogue and racists. Look up the term racists, fool. To be racists you must have the power and means to deny another race class rights and privileges. This school doesn't have that power - yet. Do you see any white kids crying to be let into this school? This at a time when there is serious discussion on imbedding micro chips into immigrants, just like dogs. Who has the power to be racists - whites! And white folk better hope that when the prophecy comes to pass the tables won't be turned.

Imbecile, gabacho is the correct spelling. You must be one of those idiot chicanos who claim cultural ties to Latin America. As a legal Mexican immigrant, you shame me.

You probably spell your little gang as 'vario' instead of the correct barrio, don't you?

sounds like you're a graduate of one of these schools. Clearly the remarks by this principal as outlined can be construed as racially intolerant AND unfortunately, it seems, his school has the power to influence young minds (at taxpayer expense). One would hope there will be a full and impartial investigation into the apparent assault that occurred today and the background of this school and principal.

Look up the principal, you fool. You will find he is married to an Asian women and his daughters are of Japanese descent. So much for your intolerance theory. Again, if it doesn't fit that narrow minded "white" definition then it is wrong.

And no, I didn't go to one of these schools, although I wish I would have. Yes, I am educated, but my Ivy League education didn't grant me any privileges in this white world. Unless I carry my diploma around my neck, I'n still some peon Mexican.

Why hasn't Jose Huizar come out and made a statement? I'm sure this school was under his watch as prez of LAUSD and now in his district.

There are many Latinos born and raised in LA who embrace our culture but know we are also AMERICANS. WE speak English and don't support gang banging and make excuses for them, don't buy from illegal vendors, don't trash our neighborhoods, don't take advantage of FREE services, don't drink with little kids in front of the house, etc. We are embarrassed by these illegals. They cause nothing but blight to this city and live like pigs. They are making LA another Tijuana. Piolin should announce on his radio program for them to clean up their neighborhoods.

The hot air on this blog's comments list is of such combustion as to make the Hindenburg look like a model of safety.

It's hard to see who's the "good guys" here. I have two extremes to choose from!

1) The neo-Pat Buchanan types who really do think its really Sam Yorty blogging. Typified by an Archie Bunker mentality and who wish George Bush would be more like that nice Richard Nixon fella, who was a REAL 'MERICAN. Listens to John and Ken and thinks the INVASION will mean the end of 'Merica.

2) Loud-mouthed, community-college educated MeChistas who took the whole warmed-over 60s AZTLAN material buried in the back of the mission statement too seriously. Tends to forget that anthropolists put the mythical Aztec homeland in modern-day northern Mexico and forget most of the southwestern U.S. was pretty much uninhabited (which is not to say the Mexican War was something our unironic Sam Yorty fans should celebate, but its food for thought about the whole "the border crossed on us" propaganda).

As a Mexican-American (a "colonized" pocho, I suppose) I don't feel either side is working for the betterment of California. One side wants to magically go back to California circa 1955, and the other wants to go to... California circa 1968. I'd rather have, yes, an assimilated immigrant population that is willingly American - and I think Califronia would be better with such immigrants than none at all.

We resume our regularly scheduled screaming, college-activist banter and KFI-listener cliches...

I do agree that we need to teach our children about our culture and root. The thing I don't agree with is that it becomes the main issue with the school. Academics take a back seat to cultural teachings. I've seen first hand what attending this school can do to a child, it's not good. The children are not being prepared properly for high school or real life.
