Human, migrants, and civil rights groups- their importance

Almost every country on earth is battling issues of human rights violations. Human rights violations are injustices committed against the fundamental human rights set out by the international community under the banner of United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.

One of the countries in the world that is has been faced with its fair share of human rights violation is the United States. Despite this fact, it remains one of the countries that uphold human rights adequately. The United States is very outspoken on issues of human rights violation that happen either on their land or any other country in the world.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

This is an organization that is based in Arizona. Its main activities revolve around providing financial solutions to non-profit migrants’ rights groups that exist in Arizona. The organization was started through the efforts of two journalists, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was initiated with $3.75 million. So far they have funded a good number of rights groups in the state.

The Southern Poverty Law Center

The Southern Poverty Law Center has an intriguing map of the United States that shows the locations of 917 hate groups throughout the entire country. On the map, symbols denote what kind of organization each location is.

For example, an orange circle with a white fist inside means white nationalist; a light blue circle with a white circle inside means anti-Muslim; a dark blue circle with a white circle on the inside means Black Separatist; a red circle with an X inside means Neo-Confederate; a dark blue circle with a triangle pointing down means anti-LGBTQ; an orange circle with a red square inside means anti-immigrant; a black circle with a gray X means Holocaust denial; a green circle with a white circle inside that is green on the inside means general hate; a gray circle with a Ku Klux Klan hat means Ku Klux Klan; a yellow circle with a three pointed crown means Christian identity; a gray circle with a swastika on the inside means Neo-Nazi; a red circle with a black music note means hate-music and a gray circle with a black goblet means radical traditional Catholicism. These symbols are not symbols that these organizations give themselves—they are just symbols that the Southern Poverty Law Center puts on their website to denote what kind of organization is which, so that no one gets confused.

If you click on a symbol for a hate group location, a little bubble will pop up telling what the organization is called and what type of organization it is, in words.

Something to consider is the fact that now at days, the media and the politicians are pushing the notion that certain views are inherently “wrong” or “hateful,” and that people with such views should not be given a chance to be included in peaceful, scholarly dialogue.

All of these organizations that are listed on the site are different, and it is pretty reasonable to believe that the individuals who take part in these organizations have a variety of views. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Mike Lacey: https://about.me/jim_larkin and http://james-larkin.com/

Among these many organizations, there could be some that are peaceful and have very reasonable, justifiable views that are just politically incorrect because they go against the specific views of the Southern Poverty Law Center.

There could also be some organizations that are weirder, more hostile and wish to wreak physical and legal havoc upon other people’s lives—and are perhaps more heavily involved in degenerate activities. Each group has its own set of beliefs and goals.

The reasonable organizations and the crazy organizations are grouped under one umbrella, when they probably should not be.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

Fortunately, the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is not on that list. This is because of the fact that they are pro-Hispanic and pro-undocumented immigrant—the most pro-immigrant that you can ever get.

They are also pro LGBTQ. However, it is of sound judgment to think that the SPLC and others with the same views as the SPLC would consider the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund as a “hate group” if it focused on the plight of White Americans—even if the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was still pro-immigrant and pro LGTQ.
