Centering Black Latinidad 13/04/2023

“Despite Afro-Latinxs’ higher educational attainment rates and labor market participation, they experience anti-Blackness in the economy and society.”

Centering Black Latinidad In this brief, we use the 2015-19 American Community Survey microdata to analyze the U.S. Afro-Latinx population, including their unique trends in education, employment, and homeownership.


“Profound and revelatory, Racial Innocence tackles head-on the insidious grip of white supremacy on our communities and how we all might free ourselves from its predation. Tanya Katerí Hernández is fearless and brilliant . . . What fire!”—Junot Díaz

The first comprehensive book about anti-Black bias in the Latino community that unpacks the misconception that Latinos are “exempt” from racism due to their ethnicity and multicultural background

Racial Innocence will challenge what you thought about racism and bias and demonstrate that it’s possible for a historically marginalized group to experience discrimination and also be discriminatory. Racism is deeply complex, and law professor and comparative race relations expert Tanya Katerí Hernández exposes “the Latino racial innocence cloak” that often veils Latino complicity in racism. As Latinos are the second-largest ethnic group in the US, this revelation is critical to dismantling systemic racism. Basing her work on interviews, discrimination case files, and civil rights law, Hernández reveals Latino anti-Black bias in the workplace, the housing market, schools, places of recreation, the criminal justice system, and Latino families.

By focusing on racism perpetrated by communities outside those of White non-Latino people, Racial Innocence brings to light the many Afro-Latino and African American victims of anti-Blackness at the hands of other people of color. Through exploring the interwoven fabric of discrimination and examining the cause of these issues, we can begin to move toward a more egalitarian society.

When ethnicity, race and nationality aren’t the same thing.


I always see these runaways enslaved ads in Puerto Rico to remind me that there was a time when Black people in Puerto Rico were more concerned with physical and mental freedom rather than waving a Puerto Rican flag 🇵🇷 that could care less about them. There was a time when Black Puerto Ricans were Black before being Puerto Rican. Nowadays, such concept is almost unfathomable.

Siempre veo estos anuncios de Negros/as prófugos para acordarme de que hubo un tiempo cuando la gente Negra estaban más preocupados con libertad física y mental en vez de menear una bandera puertorriqueña 🇵🇷 que no tiene ningún interés en ellos. Hubo un tiempo cuando los/las Negros/as puertorriqueños eran Negros/as antes de ser puertorriqueños/as. Hoy en día, tal concepto es casi impensable.
