La Raza accuses NBC of giving Trump a 'platform of hate' for SNL invite

Hispanic hate group La Raza ("The Race") is accusing NBC of ignoring their concerns and giving a "slap in the face" to Hispanic viewers for inviting Donald Trump to guest host "Saturday Night Live."

NBC broke off its relationship with Trump last summer after the candidate blasted U.S. immigration policies and accused Mexico of sending violent criminals into the U.S.

Washington Times:

The National Council of La Raza accused NBC and its iconic show “Saturday Night Live” of becoming a platform of “hate” for inviting Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump to host the program on Nov. 7.

Janet Murgia, president of the NCLR, said she expected better out of a network that over the summer severed ties with Mr. Trump after he announced his campaign with a vow to get tough on illegal immigrants, and accused Mexico of sending rapists and other bad elements to the U.S.

This is a slap in the face to the millions of Hispanic viewers who watch SNL, NBC, and the rest of the NBC/Universal family. We urge that SNL and NBC re-consider this ill-advised decision,” Ms. Murguia said in a statement.
 
She said the program has only had one Hispanic cast member in its history, and never had a female Hispanic, yet all the while “engaged in Latina stereotyping over the years, and has brushed aside our community’s concerns when we have pointed that out.”
NBC is not exactly reversing its policy regarding Trump.  They cut business ties with the tycoon, who co-owned his show The Apprentice and the Miss Universe Pageant, but that hasn't prevented the network from inviting him to appear on Meet the Press or other shows. 
 
La Raza criticizing Trump for bigotry is giggle-worthy.  They have been referred to by some as the "Hispanic KKK" – a virulently anti-white, anti-American organization that believes in reclaiming the entire southwestern U.S. as well as California for Mexico ("Aztlán").  They are strong supporters of open borders and thought that the president's immigration policies are far too weak.
 
The people at NBC want it both ways.  They want to appear to be tough on Trump to appease Hispanics while taking advantage of his drawing power to boost the ratings of one of their iconic shows.  That's pretty cynical – even for a major TV network. 
 
Meanwhile, The Donald takes it all in stride and is looking forward to his SNL appearance on November 7.
