CHOICE Review

Mindiola (sociology, Univ. of Houston), Niemann (comparative cultures, Washington State Univ.), and Rodriguez (sociology, Univ. of Houston) interviewed 1,200 black and Hispanic residents about black-brown relations in Houston, Texas, the fourth largest US city and the southern city with the largest black and Hispanic populations. The study emerged from the traditional black-white dichotomy in the media and scholarship, which ignores racial complexity and the substantial demographic growth in the Hispanic community, both US and foreign born. The authors outline the common intergroup stereotypes, areas of disagreement, and the fascinating findings that black and Hispanic women hold more negative attitudes toward each other's groups than their male counterparts. The study concludes with areas of intergroup agreement and places for creating common identity around similar experiences of discrimination and exclusion, and around shared values, such as education, the role of government in creating social change, the importance of cultural maintenance, and the belief that discrimination can be overcome. This is an excellent case study based on a large sample size and grounded in strong research of intergroup relations and history. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended.
