 From: LULAC METRO-RICHMOND [council.4611@gmail.com] Sent: Wed 6/9/2010 7:56 AM cc: petesalas651@aol.com; lulacVA@lulac.org; sgm@mctyrelaw.com; andrestobar1@yahoo.com; melga315@aol.com; lulacDC@lulac.org; ada@ugada.webmail.com; arhiggins@ft.newyorklife.com; armandoef2@gmail.com; lulacNC@lulac.org; joseluisarzola@aol.com; lulacGA@lulac.org; ajbedard@bellsouth.net; ordoquia@bellsouth.net; zafosse@lulac.org; angie30004@hotmail.com; lulacFL@lulac.org; christmaswoman4@yahoo.com; Lulac.Doral@gmail.com; fabio_lam23@yahoo.com; dlrcop@aol.com; gmvales@tampabay.rr.com; julalva@aol.com; fabio@fabioandrade.com; lulacflorida@aol.com; rebfund@aol.com; lasnacionesnews@aol.com; juangomez116y@hotmail.com;  jasperint2@aol.com; zerimar4@comcast.net; garciamati@yahoo.com; l.corde8@hotmail.com; candycaramelo@aol.com Editor… Evidently you were under the impression that only non-Puerto Ricans would view your letter. This is one puertorriqueña who is very offended at your generalization of my island and her people. It’s important for all involved in a LULAC Council to be mindful of what the acronym stands for: League of United Latin American Citizens. Your Call to Action amounts to no more than AZ Senator Russell Pearce’s Immigration Bill in his state. There’s no need to tell you the backlash of that law in Arizona and what it has done to our communities. On behalf of our Council, I can tell you that every single Puerto Rican in our region is as outraged and committed to registering and taking voters to polls to fight the injustices to all Latinos. Although as U.S. citizens the law does not affect me, my souls is Latinas first, therefore, I take it personally. In conclusion, I say to you that whether it’s Rosa Rosales or any other  politician, the saying goes, “if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.” The test of a true National LULAC President is their passion
 
and how hard they will work to right the injustices to all Latin American Citizens regardless of their country of origin. Wipe your tears, roll up your sleeves and campaign hard at the  National Convention if want change. But, please, there are enough  people out there who would love nothing more than to see angry, bitter Latinos pecking away at each other. I strongly suggest that we stay focused on LULAC was meant to stand for, not the politics and in-fighting. Vilma Seymour, President Metro-Richmond Council 4611
Editor's Response:
 The Voice of the Mainland is a public publication, emailed to all LULAC'ers with known email addresses. There was no  presumption by the editor that only non-Puerto Ricans were going to read the publication. Latinos and non-Latinos of all ethnicities were sent a link to this publication. Getting the government and/or a rum  producer from Puerto Rico to finance the 400 islands who will attend the LULAC convention is Albuqueque to the tune of $800,000.00 is offensive, The government on the island is in a state of financiql crises. Where does it get $800,000.00 to finance this venture. If we find out that "rum" is behind this venture, we will boycott "rum" in the USA immediately. It is kind of hard to tell LULAC councils wherever they may be found to have cake sales and fundraisers to finance their delegtaes to the national convention in Albuquerque when you've got a sugar daddy financing the island Puerto Rico venture to the tune of $800,000.00.

I have a less eloquent response: Dear Editor, the only statement I agree with in your whole article is when you say "que pendejada", because truly that is what you have written, una pendejada. Quit trying to divide us. We have to stay united. Being an "island" Puerto Rican, as you characterize, I am very offended by your paranoic ramblings. To insinuate that the government in Puerto Rico is behind the growth of LULAC and wants to control us to further the statehood cause is ridiculous. I have been in this country for over 30 years and have seen a lot of  progress in latino issues, but we have a long way to go. And you are not helping. As sister Vilma said we are all committed to righting the injustices to all latinos regardless of our country of origin. Deja la pendejada porque "El pueblo unido jamás será vencido"!

Editor's Response:
The government of Puerto Rico was behind the island Puerto Rico ventures in LULAC from 1994 through the year 2002. "El pueblo unido jamás será vencido"! You said that right. We will not allow the government or a "rum" producer to take over LULAC. We, LULAC'ers has a historic legacy with LULAC. It was founded in the United States by Latino residents of the United States who struggled day and night, year after year to make things right for their families and their communities. We will never allow that legacy to be compromised by the conservative Republican government of Puerto Rico or a "rum" producer from Puerto Rico. From: Francisco J. Gonzalez [mailto:guajataca01@yahoo.com] Sent: Friday, June 11, 2010 4:42 PM To: Bernardo Eureste
