To Elbro and the rest of you LUCKY listeners....THE GREAT *BLACK/HISPANIC* DIVIDE
Yes, I'm a big THE BAND fan.........a DIVIDE came up in conversation today (see below) and I couldn't resist a chance to play THE BAND. From THIS ARTICLE:
's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court is a historic milestone for Latinos, but it resonates well beyond Hispanic pride. It is perhaps the most potent symbol yet of a 21st century rapprochement between the U.S.'s two largest minorities, Latino Americans and African Americans, who in the 20th century could be as violently distrustful of each other as blacks and whites were.
Elmer's Brother asked me "IS THERE A (Black/Hispanic) DIVIDE?" apparently.........a GREAT DIVIDE.
