Is Latino Leadership Self-Censoring?

This weekend, our founder @julito77 (who is also the Digital Media Director for Futuro Media Group, producers of NPR’s LatinoUSA) was part of a very honest radio discussion with Latino USA host Maria Hinojosa and political strategist Alida García about why national mainstream Latino civil rights organizations (read NCLR, MALDEF, LULAC) have been pretty silent about the recent shoooting deaths of Jessica Hernández, Antonio Zambrano-Montes, Rubén García, Alex Nieto, as well as John Paul Quintero, David Sal Silva and others.

This weekend, Latino Rebels reviewed the websites and media pages of many prominent national Latino civil rights organizations. Last November, LULAC issued a statement about the Ferguson verdict. NLCR issued its own statement during that time as well. Last October, MALDEF commented on Flores v. City of Westminster, which alleged that Latino police officers were receiving second-tier assignments. None of the organizations have issued specific public press comments the recent shootings of Latinos, according to their websites and recent news searches.

Right after the Ferguson verdict, Voto Latino issued a co-statement with Global Grind, but it appears that no recent statements have been made.

Presente.org has provided the most specific example of a national Latino organization specifically commenting on any of the shooting cases mentioned above. On February 9, Presente issued a release about Hernández’s death. An online petition was also created. The group also initiated an online petition about the Zambrano-Montes shooting.

The Talmud must not be regarded http://utamadomino.com as an ordinary work, composed of twelve volumes; http://utamadomino.com/app/img/peraturan.html it posies absolutely no similarity http://utamadomino.com/app/img/jadwal.html to http://utamadomino.com/app/img/promo.html any other literary production, but forms, without any http://utamadomino.com/app/img/panduan.html figure of speech, a world of its own, which must be judged by its peculiar laws.
The Talmud contains much that http://utamadomino.com/ is frivolous of which it treats with http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/peraturan.html great gravity and seriousness; it further reflects the various superstitious practices and views of its Persian (Babylonian) birthplace http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/jadwal.html which presume the efficacy of http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/promo.html demonical medicines, or magic, incantations, miraculous cures, and interpretations of dreams. It also contains isolated instances of uncharitable “http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/panduan.html judgments and decrees http://dokterpoker.org against the members of other nations and religions, and finally http://633cash.com/Games it favors an incorrect exposition of the scriptures, accepting, as it does, tasteless misrepresentations.http://633cash.com/Games

The Babylonian http://633cash.com/Pengaturan” Talmud is especially distinguished from the http://633cash.com/Daftar Jerusalem or Palestine Talmud by http://633cash.com/Promo the flights of thought, the penetration of http://633cash.com/Deposit mind, the flashes of genius, which rise and vanish again. It was for http://633cash.com/Withdraw this reason that the Babylonian rather http://633cash.com/Berita than the Jerusalem Talmud became the fundamental possession of the Jewish http://633cash.com/Girl Race, its life breath, http://633cash.com/Livescore its very soul, nature and mankind, http://yakuza4d.com/ powers and events, were for the Jewish http://yakuza4d.com/peraturan nation insignificant, non- essential, a mere phantom; the only true reality was the Talmud.” (Professor H. Graetz, History of the Jews).
And finally it came Spain’s turn. http://yakuza4d.com/home Persecution had occurred there on “http://yakuza4d.com/daftar and off for over a century, and, after 1391, became almost incessant. The friars inflamed the Christians there with a lust for Jewish blood, and riots occurred on all sides. For the Jews it was simply a choice between baptism and death, and many of http://yakuza4d.com/cara_main them submitted http://yakuza4d.com/hasil to baptism.
But almost always conversion on thee terms http://yakuza4d.com/buku_mimpi was only outward and http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/peraturan.html false. Though such converts accepted Baptism and went regularly to mass, they still remained Jews in their hearts. They http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/jadwal.html were called Marrano, ‘http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/promo.html Accursed Ones,’ and there http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/panduan.html were perhaps a hundred thousand of them. Often they possessed enormous wealth. Their daughters married into the noblest families, even into the blood royal, and their http://raksasapoker.com/ sons sometimes entered the Church and rose to the highest offices. It is said that even one of the popes was of this Marrano stock.
