Sample text

Chapters 3–6 examine dimensions of black-Latino relations at the national level using descriptive data and quantitative analysis. In Chapter 7, we consider intergroup relations by focusing on several specific public policies to further examine the idea that policy attributes might generate various types of group relationships, given the ideological and interest factors entailed. These examples are simply meant to illustrate or highlight evidence not readily apparent in other types and dimensions of data in our study.

National Politics wrote, “Our separate struggles are really one. A struggle for freedom, for dignity, and for humanity” (Chavez 1990). The notion that blacks and Latinos share a similar struggle for civil, economic, and political rights is neither new nor objectively naïve. While the black struggle is the basis for most of the civil rights era legislation in the 1960s and 1970s, Latino rights became a part of a range of laws and other policies adopted during this era (Skrentny 2002). Affirmative action programs aimed at boosting economic and, importantly, educational equality have been applied to both groups, and the current animosity toward groups that benefit from affirmative action programs seems to vary by region, based on the size of the black or Latino population.

This analysis of elites from both groups, at the national level, offers distinct evidence on the questions, focused on important elements of the national policy-making process. We systematically examine interelite behaviors of two sets of minority advocacy groups and two sets of members of Congress (blacks and Latinos) at the national level to determine the nature of the interminority group relations there; and we contrast that evidence with what is suggested in the urban politics research. Attention is also given, if indirectly, to another iteration of intergroup relations€– that is, the role of whites is part of the story as well.
