Translated fully to English, “La Raza Lawyers of San Diego” means, “The Race Lawyers of Saint James”.
Now, apparently, The Race Lawyers of Saint James don’t wish to be confused with other organizations with the Spanish wording for “The Race”, or, “La Raza”.
According to various groups going by the name “La Raza” they are not affiliated.
For me, it’s a matter of little difference. As far as I can tell, the term “La Raza” is uniquely used to reference Hispanic peoples and referring to them as “The Race”. Any group using “La Raza” in it’s name is by definition —– racist.
I suppose La Raza could be appropriately used if referencing the entire Human Race, but, I don’t believe such a case exists today. The term as it is used today is bizarre, nescience, and idiotic. Hispanics of Spanish descent are Caucasians just as people in America of other European descent are Caucasians.
I hope you all have enjoyed today’s Spanish lesson.
