Black-Latino Competition

An interesting question with many unsatisfactory answers:

Columnist, writer and political analyst Dr Earl Ofari Hutchinson recently wrote about the changing racial landscape in Watts, in South Central Los Angeles,which over a 40-year period shifted from a predominantly black population to one where Latinos are in the majority.

However, the resulting competition for jobs, housing and healthcare has caused racial tensions and a shift in political power in favour of Latinos. So the question is, will we see this scenario repeated in other states and how will this affect black progression in America?
