Too-literal translation?[edit]

I question the literal use of the translation of "La Raza" as "The Race". With context it's used as "The People" or "The Community" as exemplified below with "La Raza FC" or The Community/Peoples FC. Hence this translation would be a "False Friend" when translated without context. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.202.195.144 (talk) 20:24, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

That's an interesting opinion and may even be correct, but we need reliable sources to provide such an analysis of the original versus contemporary meaning(s) and interpretations. There is no question whatsoever that the original meaning was 'race'; this is integral to both Vasconcelos's La raza cósmica and Paz's El laberinto de la soledad.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  17:07, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

origin[edit]

The article says the term originates in a 1925 article. But it goes back to the older term la raza hispana. Fiesta de la Raza (Columbus Day) was first celebrated in 1914, according to es:La Raza. As a concept it stems from the colonial casta system. --92.208.46.192 (talk) 05:19, 6 August 2016 (UTC)

Octavio Paz[edit]

We need to integrate some material about Octavio Paz and El laberinto de la soledad ('The Labyrinth of Solitude') which developed la Raza ideas further, beyond Vasconcelos.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  17:07, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
