The annual report of the Urban League on the State of Black America 2014  found that African Americans are twice as likely to be unemployed as whites (13.1 percent of blacks versus 6.5 percent whtes.) The rate for Latinos was 9.1 percent. But instead of focusing on institutionalized racism in American society the New York Times (April 2) headline read "Report Finds Hispanics Faring Better Than Blacks," preferring to compare African Americans and Hispanics, giving white supremacy a free pass. Divide anc conquer and old effective tactic.
