When we consider the multi-layered complexity and controversy of "la raza", it is no wonder that Janet Murgia, who is a woman of good will working in a tough political environment, often refers to her organization by its initials, calling it simply "NCLR". And it's no wonder that more militant Latinos express their advocacy for illegal immigration by shouting, "Viva la Raza!"
