Abstract:

Since blacks and Latinos share similar economic and political interests, analysts assume that both groups should be political allies. However, the ability of blacks and Latinos to achieve strong and durable coalitions has proven far more difficult than assumed. Given recent findings that suggest conflict between the two groups may be a product of their group competition for economic resources, the study examines the influence of localized employment and housing conditions on individualsâ?? perceived zero-sum competition with the out-group. According to realistic group conflict theory, competition over group interests should encourage individuals to perceive the out-group as a threat. The analysis relies upon data from the 1992 Multi-City Study of Urban Inequality (MCSUI) and 1998 Los Angeles County Social Survey (LACSS). Both surveys: 1) provide samples within metropolitan areas that are comprised of large numbers of racial and ethnic minorities, 2) collect over-samples of African-American and Latino residents and 3) afford the opportunity to merge the survey data with contextual data collected from the U.S. Census Bureau. Overall, the project will contribute to the political science literature on racial and ethnic relations by showing that personal and group interests have a significant role to play in politics, especially among racial and ethnic minorities that enjoy limited access to scarce economic and political resources. The findings from this work will be extended in a broader project to examine the political consequences of blacks and Latinosâ?? perceived zero-sum competition with one another.
