FROM THIS EPISODE

In one of the world’s most diverse cities, blacks and Latinos get along for the most part. But the prejudice of a few is compounded by economic and political competition. There’s racism in some schools. In prisons, racial tensions are so high that inmates are segregated. Gang murders most often are committed by one racial group against its own members—but race is the likely motive in a spate of recent killings.

Main Topic From the Streets to the White House: Black and Latino Race Relations
LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and LAPD Chief William Bratton have been reluctant to attribute gang murders to racial animosity. Eighty-seven percent of the suspects in Latino killings are Latinos; sixty-five percent of suspects in black killings are black. But after a recent spate of vicious attacks reported nation-wide, they conceded there has been a racial element at play.
