Example text

The list goes on, and the gaps between whites and blacks or Latinos€– while reduced in some instances and over a very long time frame€ – persist. The ratio between black and white unemployment rates, for instance, is about the same in 2008 as it was in 1972 and roughly comparable patterns emerge for Latinos. In short, there are ample grounds to assume that politically, economically, and socially, black and Latino struggles are similar; indeed, they have important commonalities and are “one” in some important ways.

An implication of two-tiered pluralism applied specifically to minority intergroup relations is that black-Latino relations is different from the common “black-white paradigm” that has long shaped the thinking about intergroup politics. Not only are different groups analyzed (that is, blacks-Latinos rather than black-white, or group competition in general) but both blacks and Latinos are largely in the “second tier” of politics due to their similar socioeconomic status, combined with a “racialized” status to a greater or lesser degree.

Additionally, however, even if ideas or interests are shared, they may not have the same degree of salience for each group. Thus, one group’s important issue may simply not be high on the agenda of the other. This is more likely to happen, we think, in the institutions of the national government since the range of potential issues is broader here if contrasted relative to what it is in local politics, and the probability of a salient policy for one group being directly at odds with the other is lessened.
