Slauson Girl Speaks: Black & Brown Relations in Los Angeles

Los Angeles, CA--On this episode of Slauson Girl Speaks, I have a discussion with Black and Brown folks on Black and Brown relationships currently in Los Angeles.

We discuss historical tensions of the two groups as well as the rise in attacks against Latino street vendors posted online by Black youth. The conversation also touched on the immigrant experience and what causes migration to the U.S, as well as many of the anti-Black attitudes in the Latino community.

Jobs, white supremacy, colorism and what true solidarity looks like for both communities was also the topic of conversation–along with so much more!

These topics, as uncomfortable as they can be, are a continuing conversation that must be had so that we can truly mend relationships and have a solid base of solidarity amongst both groups.

I encourage people to continue the conversation with those in your community and on your platforms, if you feel comfortable doing so.
