eddie falcon is one real ass nigga

wow, and here i was going to make fun of the author for feeling the need to point out he's "Chicano" (shouldn't it be Xican@ if you're going full jargon on it?)

Looks like it's taken from the description on https://myspace.com/fortythievessf

IVAW is a nationalist organization.

Could have strong nationalist tendencies among membership, but in their mission/values/vision it recognizes the community created by those who've served in and been affected by the GWOT who have come to disagree with it as defining membership. And their second value recognizes that the military culture has worked to "dehumanize our so-called enemies, as well as ourselves. Everyone deserves dignity and respect; we recognize the humanity of all people."
