This is what happens after damn near 50 years of continually throwing over 90% of your votes to the Democratic party without making them EARN IT first.

WASHINGTON -- Vice President Joe Biden rallied Latino members of Congress on Thursday to push for immigration reform, calling Latinos "the center of the nation's future" and reminding them that their political power will only grow after the last presidential election.

"The way to make the mark ... is for the Hispanic community to step up and step out and let the world know, let the Republicans know, let others know that if you ignore the needs and concerns of the Hispanic community, you will not win," Biden said at a swearing-in event hosted by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, a nonpartisan group that runs programs encouraging Latino leadership.

A record 26 members were welcomed into the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which is separate from the institute, on Thursday. Not all Latino members of Congress joined the caucus, but their total, too, http://abcnews.go.com/ABC_Univision/Politics/record-number-latinos-serve-congress/story?id=18122130#.UOWyhonjmBN" rel="nofollow - is a record : There are three senators and 33 House members of Latino descent in the 113th Congress.

Many of them are strong supporters of immigration reform, which also ranked high -- though not first -- on the list of priorities of Latino voters. President Barack Obama has promised swift action and http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/02/obama-immigration-reform_n_2398507.html" rel="nofollow - will begin major work on the issue this month now that the "fiscal cliff" battle is out of the way. Members of Congress are already beginning to craft a deal and hope it can receive a vote by the end of the summer.

The president made something of a down payment on his promise of reform last summer when he announced that his administration would grant deferred action on deportation for some undocumented young people, often referred to as Dreamers.

Before the deferred action announcement, Biden told Thursday's crowd, he and Cecilia Muñoz, director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, had met with now-retired Rep. Charlie Gonzalez (D-Texas), who chaired the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, to discuss what could be done for Dreamers.

Although deferred action was considered by many a risky political choice, Biden said he and Muñoz "absolutely believed that what we were about to do was not only the right thing to do, but that it would be embraced by the vast majority of the American people."

They found they were right, the vice president said. Obama http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/07/latino-voters-election-2012_n_2085922.html" rel="nofollow - won more than 70 percent of the Latino vote in his reelection bid.

Biden said the American people also recognize what Latinos, including those who are undocumented, can and will contribute to the country.

"It's no longer about what can be done for the Hispanic community," he said. "The question is what the Hispanic community is going to do to take this country to a totally new place."

It's also expected that the Black vote will not be at 93% in 2016 .
We won't go to the other side but ppl are not predicting that any candidate can produce a turnout of blacks like BO.

Vice President Joe Biden says the 2012 election will be forever viewed as a turning point for the Latino community, whose political and economic power is "just about to take full flight."

"What's finally happened is the American people, the American people have finally begun to understand …the awesome potential, future potential of the Hispanic community," he said Thursday at a welcome reception for new Latino members of Congress. "...Now the nation -- and I might add the hemisphere -- understands the Hispanic community must be courted. Must be courted."

As long as we as a community continue to choose not to vote, take our education seriously, and focus on economic advancement we'll continue to be in the same situation.

It really doesn't matter how many "latinos" there are and whether the administration is catering to them.

They've been gaining political leverage for the last two decades. That's why it doesn't "matter" in the sense that some people are alluding to. First, when there were more of us and less of them we sat back on our laurels and allowed our community to destroy itself from the inside out. That's our own fault and we need to own that. It has nothing to do with how many of them there are because we could be winning if we actually wanted to.

Second, someone else doesn't have to lose for us to win. I honestly have no issue with them gaining political leverage. It's what we as a black people should have done and can still do. We just have to want to win, just like they clearly do.

Damn right. I'm starting my self-imposed exile to the Caribbean when I'm 30. I'm almost ready to give up. To hell with these Brothas. No point in trying to free slaves that don't wanna leave the plantation.

As you can see right here in this thread, most Negroes aint trying to accept this message. Even if this message was sent to every Negro in this damn country, the response would be the same.

Unless there is some type of cataclysmic event that forces Blacks to come together, then everything is in vain.

Stick a fork in it. I ain't got time to be on a losing team. I've said it before and I'll say it again, when Latinos take over I'mma be right there first in line doing the Bankhead bounce.

And us demanding it has nothing to do with how many latinos there are.

Case in point...the unfair crack/cocoaine laws. Because of our lack of interest in voting for local political seats (council, school board, state congress/senate, alderman, district attorney, controller, etc. etc.) we ended up with a set of sentencing laws that made huge swaths of our community felons who can never vote again. Why? Because the people who win the local seats become the people on the national stage (as senators, judges, governors, and presidential candidates).

We can't gain political leverage when most of our community can't vote or doesn't want to even though they have the ability. I recognize the influence of institutional racism and historical consequences of slavery but truth be told, we have done a lot of this to ourselves through the simple act of not voting when and where it matters. Voting on the local level is what makes change happen...it's the reason why Koreans do so well when they immigrate over here...its the reason why southeast asians are gaining traction where I live...and it's the reason why a lot of latino communities have prospered.

In this context I believe it's less about population which is established and will remain that way for a considerable length of time , and more about voting fluidity.

My parents like politics and always stressed the importance of voting but I grew up being taught by a lot of teachers and advisors connected to the civil rights movement .

We're having this conversation because both parties see the Latino vote along with its substantial numbers but its a vote that can be had .

That's not nearly the case with the black vote

As you can see right here in this thread, most Negroes aint trying to accept this message. Even if this message was sent to every Negro in this damn country, the response would be the same.

Unless there is some type of cataclysmic event that forces Blacks to come together, then everything is in vain.

Republicans want to win the next election so they are going to give in to any and all demands over the next four years.

 
Immigration reform is long overdue and really needs to happend. I don't see this as a major political "gain" for latinos.
 
Sure they will get you in line for citizenship which will take about years to complete and countless $$$.
 
I see latinos being feed the same bullsh*t as blacks, given just enough but never enough.
 
Citizenship is what latinos are looking for nada mas.

I gotta find the article again...but there was a great one comparing voting in the asian (includes korean, chinese, southeast asian, and pacific islander) community here in los angeles county vs. the black community. Apparently both communities have comparable numbers of people who can't vote (asians because of citizenship, blacks because of felony convictions). But the asian community is much smaller and still had much higher turnout even with the significant burden of language barriers. Which they were able to overcome because several asian-immigrant orgs worked in the communities for like a year before the election so that it wouldn't be an issue.

Black people, with no language barrier, and no citizenship barrier, basically just choose not to vote. It's shameful.

i understand why black people vote with an allegiance. the democratic party is comfortable, like our little safe haven.  

its like the tie that binds us when together and any crab the dares to crawl out the overcrowded bucket is automatically against our cause. i get that. 

problem is, we don't even have a cause. the democratic party knows this and takes our votes for granted. if we start making demands they'll be forced to either put up or shut up only if we follow latinos political strategy and make them fight for our allegiance.

That mindset is why we're in this situation.

Bet if black people had turned out en masse to vote against the three strikes law here in ca when it was first proposed we wouldn't be dealing with the consequences of it years later after it had a chance to help along the destruction of our families and communities. Finally got rid of it, but that doesn't help those who were affected by it before now.

Voting actually does a lot. It shapes communities. But hey, don't vote and you get what we have now.

Another example, people want to complain about how young black boys are overrepresented in in the numbers of suspensions in public schools. Should've gotten out there and voted for school board members and superintendents and mayors who support less punitive consequences for behavioral issues.

Voting works for people who actually vote.

They feel as if they have made it because racism is not blatant like our ancestors. When it's not in your face day to day, you often forget your struggle and those who struggled before you.

And blindly voting Republican is not going to make anyone take us seriously or solve all our problems. When it comes down to it, we should not be worried about the party...we should be voting in our self-interest.

I'm not going to vote against my self-interest so in general I don't vote Republican. But if it's in my self-interest then the label (republican, democrat, green, independent, whatever) doesn't matter.
