Success Followed by Complacency
In a news report, the writers of a piece on a possible organizing movement among Latinos said that in the past "Success was followed by complacency." That seems to be true and is probably one of the reasons that Latinos cannot get sufficiently organized to exercise their potential political clout in this country. Because each of us comes from countries who have differing relationships with the USA, organizing is difficult. The article from the Washington Post does explain some of this, but knowing this will not help to keep people together on political issues.
