How common is racism within the Hispanic community?


Answer by  Zaka (2315)

Quite common. Hispanics comprise a large international and interracial grouping. Indigenous and black groups are commonly discriminated by caucasian hispanics. What most Americans ignore is that regional or cross-border prejudices abound in Latin America. One needs only look at the most populous Hispanic froup in America. Mexicans from the capital descrimminate against fellow Mexicans from the south of Mexico.

Asking how common racism is anywhere is a very difficult question. No two people can agree on what racism is. For example, laws which increase taxes for low-income earners could be racist if one minority is predominantly low-income. "The Hispanic community" is a misnomer since it includes a variety of people who don't necessarily share values.

Racism against whites (Anglos) is fairly common. Racism against blacks (African Americans) is almost universal and much more severe. There are actually organized Black on Hispanic gang wars in Los Angeles, with race based murders to clear different neighborhoods of the other ethnic group. Racism against Asians is less pronounced.
