Race in Los Angeles and the Presidential Campaign
Listen to/Watch entire show:
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.
