Relationships between Blacks and Latinos have sometimes been strained. People with brown skin have the same shortcomings and vulnerabilities as those of us with white skin—that includes the seven deadly sins. Pride, envy, and greed play a role in strained relationships whether it involves race or not. I’m thinking about this because of the question of how well a Black man will capture the Latino vote in this presidential campaign season. When Barak Obama used “Yes, we can” as his mantra in the New Hampshire concession speech, he was really saying “Si, se puede.”
