Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Political issues and social problems such as immigration, prison, bilingual education, employment, political jockeying, changing ethnic dynamics, and racial stereotypes that both divide and unite blacks and Latinos are examined in this topical analysis. This cutting-edge argument looks at how both minority groups frame and interpret these issues through the prism of their experience. It blends the personal and the analytical and ultimately serves as a guide to navigate race and ethnic relations through 21st-century America.

Review:

"Social critic Hutchinson (The Emerging Black GOP Majority) deftly explains the challenges posed by immigration to an African-American audience wary of a Latino threat played up by the media. As the growing Latino electorate gains political favor, Hutchinson observes that the black community is wondering where new immigrants stand nationally on key issues of education, housing, jobs, health care and political empowerment. A backlash has mobilized black protests on amnesty and border enforcement, he adds, while many Latino immigrants, as well as former Mexican president Vicente Fox, have embraced negative stereotypes about African-Americans, causing a bitter schism between the two cultures. Though Hutchinson tends to emphasize the conflicts that have defeated coalition-building and compromise, and some of his opinions are delivered in very broad terms (such as suggesting that Latinos support the Iraq war), this abbreviated book generally invites a fruitful dialogue on the obstacles to unifying black and brown communities. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Writer and activist Earl Ofari Hutchinson begins 'The Latino Challenge to Black America,' on a promising note. He recalls an incident on a cultural trip to China in 1974, when he assumed that a fellow delegate from Chicago named Miguel was Puerto Rican. Miguel, who was Mexican American, didn't appreciate the assumption, and his 'pithy but agitated' retort was 'both a revelation and an education.'...

Synopsis:

Problems such as immigration, prison, bilingual education, employment, political jockeying, changing ethnic dynamics, and racial stereotypes that divide and unite blacks and Latinos are examined in this topical analysis.
