Two reports of interest from the Mumford Center at SUNY Albany:

OF CONTINUING INTEREST HOW RACE COUNTS FOR 
HISPANIC AMERICANS  

There are nearly a million black Hispanics in the U.S., and they are 
more similar to non-Hispanic blacks than to other Hispanic racial 
groups. The fastest growing segment of the Hispanic community 
describes itself not as black or white, but simply as Hispanic. This 
report describes how race is counted among Hispanics, and shows 
that different Hispanic racial groups are very distinct in terms of 
socioeconomic status and residential patterns. The full report can

PEOPLE & POLITICS IN AMERICA'S BIG CITIES  

The Challenges to Urban Democracy How Immigration Is Changing 
the Political Terrain in America's Largest Cities The report 
describes the emergence of new immigrant minority groups - 
changing the competition for urban power from one that pits native 
minorities against whites to one that pits new immigrants not only 
against whites, but also against native minorities. Download report
