Divide and conquer is one of the oldest strategies those in power have used to maintain their power. Since the Los Angeles uprising, there’s been growing attention to relations between the African American and Latino communities. The April edition of Harper’s Magazine includes a dialogue called "Our Next Race Question: The uneasiness between blacks and Latinos" SALIM MUWAKKIL in Chicago. State Senator Jesus Garcia is a Mexican American legislator from Chicago, a board member of the National Association of Latino Elected Officials, and a leader in building black-Latino coalitions.
