As Latinos assume new roles of authority in the community, they must shed their own prejudices against women, the disabled and gays, an ethnic studies professor Tuesday told members of a new Latino leadership program.

California's unemployment rate declined last month to 9.5%, down from 9.8%, but the state remains mired in a jobs slump, with only scant signs of a turnaround, the Labor Department reported Friday. The national jobless figure also improved, dipping to 7.1% from 7.3%. But both the national and state numbers simply reflect a shrinkage of the work force as 508,000 fewer Americans sought jobs in January.

Occasionally, White hears that the man has sold some of the increasingly valuable pieces and uses others as collateral for bank loans. What can White do?
