Making the Case for a United Latino Front

"Unity of any underprivileged or disenfranchised group en masse is a revolution. Such a revolution becomes a threat to the status quo and to the influence of those in power."

Can Latinos find a new power in numbers? Obviously, we'd like to believe so. As the fastest-growing segment of the population, we can only claim our rightful place if we step forward and join African Americans as people of color. Because at the end of the day, no matter our shade, the system writes us off as "nonwhite." La revolución es nuestra, y ahora es el momento.
