The electoral contest in the 13th congressional race between congressman Charles Rangel and Dominican- born Adriano Espaillat offers us a valuable lesson regarding communities of color.  Those in the mainstream media engaging in journalistic malpractice tried to construct a Black vs. Latinos scenario or a Dominican-Puerto Rican family feud.  When all is said and done those in the grassroots communities continue to live in  mutual respect and love.  As to the politicians let them not confuse personal ambition with the aspirations of the people.
