DURHAM -- Latino immigrants bring negative attitudes toward blacks with them from their home countries rather than develop them after they arrive here, a team including four Duke and two UNC researchers say.

The study, which will appear in the August issue of the Journal of Politics analyzed survey data drawn from Durham residents in 2003.

Latinos also more often identified with whites than blacks, although whites were less likely to see themselves as having much in common with Latinos.

The survey asked 500 residents nearly equally divided among the three groups. The researchers chose Durham because of its nearly 500 percent increase in Latino population between 1990 and 2000, and because its black population spans socioeconomic levels.

"What surprised us most was the high level of negative stereotypes on the part of Latino immigrants," said Paula McClain, a professor of political science at Duke University and the study's lead author. "We were also, I guess, pleasantly surprised at the low level of stereotypes of blacks held by whites in Durham. Less than 10 percent of our sample of whites held negative stereotypes of blacks. And that blacks were more tolerant of Latino immigrants than Latino immigrants were of blacks."

The survey asked such questions as whether members of one group saw the others as hardworking, trustworthy or easy to get along with.

A majority of Latino immigrants, 58.9 percent, said few or almost no blacks are hardworking. Nearly one-third said few if any blacks are easy to get along with. And nearly 57 percent said few if any blacks could be trusted.

Only one-third of blacks, on the other hand, said they distrusted Latino immigrants; 42.8 percent said most or nearly all Latinos are easy to get along with; and 72 percent characterized them as hard-working.

Negative views toward blacks tended to be higher among male Latinos but lower among those who were more educated. Although it was too small to be statistically significant, some evidence suggested that unfavorable perceptions lessen with time spent in the United States.

Latinos seemed unlikely to have absorbed the attitudes from whites, the researchers said, mostly because whites were more positive toward blacks. Only 9.3 percent of whites said few blacks work hard, only 8.4 percent said few or no blacks are hard to get along with and only 9.6 percent said few if any blacks can be trusted.

More than three-quarters, 78 percent, of Latinos said they have more in common with whites than blacks. But whites said they have more in common with blacks -- 45.9 percent, as opposed to 22.2 percent saying they have more in common with Latinos.

Blacks were split on whether they have more in common with Latinos or whites -- 49.6 percent and 45.5 percent, respectively.

Through El Centro Hispano, Durham's Latino community supports advocacy for the economic interests of poor people of all races and ethnic backgrounds in Durham, said Alba Onofrio, El Centro's director. One way it does so is as a member organization of Durham CAN, which stands for Congregations, a.ssociations and Neighborhoods.

Friction arises from causes besides race, she said.

"We find that more often it's a matter of class and not of race," Onofrio said.

And although Hispanics are El Centro's main constituency, it aids other local immigrants, such as the Tanzanian a.ssociation, which meets at its offices, she said.

Onofrio suggested that Durham Latinos' attitudes toward blacks may be affected by black-on-Hispanic robbery, which gained a high profile in the mid-1990s as Latino immigration to Durham increased. But that, too, has more to do with blacks and Latinos living in close proximity, with both groups in dire economic straits, rather than race per se, she said.

"That creates a tension, because people aren't able to see out of that box that they live in," she said.

Although the study didn't look at crime, other evidence suggests Latino immigrants' attitudes about race may be formed in Mexico, where most Durham immigrants are from, McClain said. Recent studies there have documented racism and discrimination toward darker-skinned people, she said.

Three others of the study's 10 authors are at Duke: Niambi M. Carter, Victoria DeFrancesco Soto and Monique Lyle. UNC researchers Gerald F. Lackey and Kendra Davenport Cotton participated, as did J. Alan Kendrick of St. Augustine's College in Raleigh.

In the United States, relations can improve as long as people are willing to examine their presuppositions, McClain said.

"If you recognize these attitudes exist, you can begin to ameliorate them," she said. "The question is, since they exist, what do we do about them?"

I think it's a class thing...in south american and caribbean countries complextion is a pretty good indicator of socioeconomic standing...most of the time. So it's only natural for immigrants to come to North America with these preconceived ideas...

I knew of the prejudice attitudes some latinos felt about us.

It kind of makes you wonder why the few that do feel this way would wake up and realize they are getting used by the elite just like blacks are and have been for decades.

But that moment will come soon in time.....

Just another reason for the white man to separate us. I'm latino, my dad came from honduras in 71' and there's hella blacks out there. They do have a preconception of blacks, but in San Francisco, I ended up in an all black and samoan school, so all my friends were black. Then i moved up north to a white county, and same thing, there was a natural friendship that was built between myself and blacks. Most of my friends are black, but i have a lot of white, polynesian, middle eastern friends. Latinos and blacks are more united in the Bay Area than in somewhere like Los Angeles. The Bay has so many different culture's it's like a melting pot like NY. People don't really trip off race over here, some do, but not enough to make a difference. My dad used to hate blacks, but over time, it was all because of the Black Panther sh*t that was going on back then, when they were terrorizing latinos for no reason, and they weren't like the blacks back in Honduras. To hate a race is ignorant. I wonder who these "qualified people" who were interviewed were? Here's the thing, we all have different colors, cultures, styles, languages, but we're all in this f!ght together, so many latinos ARE black, by skin, but come from Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Columbia, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, we have to accept them, because they're all our people. I don't see why everyone wants US to hate eachother, we're all just trying to succeed and not be sold like slaves to the federal prisons. True there's more latinos than blacks in the US. but who's the cause of that?? Corporate America, who has more influence than the Prez.

Props if ya feel me, and props if you're not gonna let no poll in the middle of nowhere change your feelings toward another. Cuz I won't.

who cares what they think...tell those low life spikes to get a job that pays more then 9.00
See this? That's ignorance. Come to Cali even the day laborers make like $12 and hour. maybe where you're from, but in Cali, we got dough, everybody does. You're probably the type that would blame a latino person cuz you can't get a job right? :finger:

Dumb fucs like you never get through in life with silly thoughts like that.

Similar to what "Hyphy" said, it depends where in the U.S. you are talking about as to how latinos and blacks view each other. Like NY is more of a united thing, I think, then L.A. and what not.

But that poll seems real suspect anyways. I don't believe for a second that only 10% of whites view blacks with negative stereotypes. That's total bullsh*t. I've been to North Carolina, and the white people there were racist as sh*t towards me. Security in the mall tried to jack my boy up for stealing, when he didn't take a damn thing.

In the South I can pretty much understand, Blacks and whites been here for awhile then you have those mexican immigrants coming in being so prejudicial with a low education.

sidenote:

Africans helped in the building of the aztec and inca civilizations and were incorporated in to their society. Africans transversed over the Atlantic ocean seeking trades over periods of time, it's documented there artifacts and
writings. A percentage of Africans a.ssimilated into their societies.

The oppressed just about always mimic the oppressors so who can really be surprised. We do it within our own race as well (the light skinned obsession). The black man is the most hated, yet most feared organism to ever exist.

But this article is just trying to start some sh*t

Yeah, also when slaves were initially brought over into the Americas, they were used as free labor right alongside the South American indians (Incas, etc.) that had been victims of European imperialization. They a.ssimilated into their societies through that.

Props for posting news, but these kind of threads do nothing except spread hate and fuel the fire between us. I hate to see that the threads that put one race against another are the ones that are always on fire. Until there are no more stories like this in the news, we can never begin to move foward.

You should have also put a poll choice that is not negative ie "who gives a fu*k about this story"

everybody thinks NY is like one big ball of racial harmony, where all races get along. it's the complete opposite. ny is one of the most segregated places in the country. when my older brother and cousins were in school they had all kids of race riots...black vs white, black vs puerto rican, white vs spanish etc.
I been living in NY for a couple of years now, and I ain't trying to say all races get along. I'm just saying, from what I see, blacks and latinos get along more than in a place like L.A. I guess it depends where you're at in NY though too.
