Latinos and Blacks: What Unites and Divides Us?
Abstract:Last December we initiated an open discussion among four Latinos and Blacks: a woman and a man from each group. Our discussions focused on what unites and divides these two distinct, complex, unique and overlapping groups and what may stand in the way of Blacks and Latinos becoming true allies as friends, peers and bosses. Our time together was a learning experience and we touched on many subjects, including immigration, nationality, assimilation, language, race, ethnicity, skin color and appearance.
