"Latinos Are the New Blacks"

Maybe Steve Colbert is right when he says on his fake news show that "Latinos are the new Blacks. "Or at least the WSJ seems to agree: Blacks vs. Latinos in New Race Cases. "A new wave of race-discrimination cases is appearing: African-Americans who feel they're being passed over for Hispanics. The cases highlight mounting tension between Hispanics and blacks in the workplace."

These tensions are of course evident in school reform, though they're not at a particular high point. I still remember when a family friend and longtime educator told me that Title I was for the black kids, and Title VII was for the Latino kids.
