No where is this more evident than in Miami. African Americans who have lived in South Florida for generations have become marginalized by the influx of Cubans and other Latinos. Preference for low income housing goes to Hispanics, because often those running the program are Hispanic. Minimum wage jobs go to those who speak Spanish. It is sad.

True. I have witnessed their self-loathing firsthand. After laughing hysterically, I had to correct a black woman from the Dominican Republic, who had the nerve to tell me she is often mistaken for being black. I guess she thought having Spanish as her native language somehow changed her DNA. It's sad.

Indeed it is sad. But, this is only the beginning. Black folks are also being denied jobs and chased out of neighborhoods in the DC area. As a matter of fact, I have yet to see blacks employed at Hispanic-owned businesses.

So...what's the solution?
This is why I hope Romney wins so he could stop what Obama is doing regarding giving these 2 millions illegals qnything.

This is one area where I hoped blacks and white amercinas could see common ground.

That is something not often discussed, preference for light skinned Latinos. I have a friend from Puerto Rico, who was "told" she was not eligible for paperwork for unemployment insurance because she was NOT Puerto Rican...ummm....she was born there, she is definitely Puerto Rican...but she is black. She has told me she is often treated very poorly because of her skin color, by other Hispanics.

In fact, they don't give a damn about black folks, that is, other than to use black pawns to further their agenda. Once that's accomplished, they will promptly drop black supporters, and distance themselves from anything even marginally related to black Americans.
Once in power, the ethnocentric racists will ensure that their own has total control over our government. The only thing OTH's will be good for in America will be paying the taxes in order to finance the newly selected corrupt regime and over abundant breeding masses.

This. So-called Black leaders have Black people thinking that illegal immigrants and Black Americans are supposed to "work together." It's imagine how blind they are being about it. Won't be any teamwork when Black people look up and realize they have been pushed out considerably.

So true. I watched a video of a conference in which the keynote speaker was a Hispanic professor. During the Q&A session, a black woman said her support for Hispanic "undocumented" is due to the fact they share the same African roots, and therefore, are her brothers and sisters. It was rather embarrassing when the professor corrected her. He told her few black Americans share the same roots as the majority of Hispanics in this country, in particular, the Mexican majority. He said, in fact, most Hispanics feel no connection whatsoever to black Americans. He also mentioned their lack of "white guilt" and the impact it will have on black Americans in areas with a Hispanic majority. Frankly, I was surprised by his candor. I wish I could recall his name and the title of his book. I posted the video in a thread, but I don't remember the title.

Romney will not do anything to curb illegal immigration..NOTHING.
Just like Obama, if Romney wins the office he will further the illegal amnesty agenda.

And as a related side note; Romney has Hispanic roots in his family tree.

I will wait and see what Romney will do but we already know what Obama has and will do. No, Romney has no Hispanic roots. Hispanic is a culture and none of the Romney's were practicing Hispanics culturally. His father was born in an American colony in Mexico and that is it! His father held Mexican citizenship but that doesn't make him nor his family Hispanic in any way.
