Communities in Transition

March 01, 1992

The series on black-Latino coexistence in South Los Angeles is very much needed. I went through many of those same problems a decade ago when we arrived in this country and decided to stay in Inglewood because we were used to integrated neighborhoods in Cuba (and all over Latin America).

I remember very clearly a local newspaper that kept predicting a racial war--they called it "a hot summer"--that never happened. That makes me appreciate better your article "Arrival of Latinos Spurs Black Self-Examination" (Feb. 18).

But in another section to illustrate an article about Inglewood's image, The Times really blew it: You chose a photo of a bus "marred by graffiti" in the "business district."

That could be the 212 bus line that starts here and goes all the way to North Hollywood and Burbank Airport. Or the 111 that goes through "good neighborhoods" to Whittier. Or any other line. How do you know the graffiti on the bus started in Inglewood? Tell me.
