State Sen. Art Torres' message at the First AME Church (Oct. 12) was timely and much needed. We all must heed the call to stand on common ground. Being mindful and respectful of various perspectives, we must end ethnic tension. His proposal for a multicultural research institute brings us closer to ending racial hostility. As one committed to improving race relations in our city, I appreciate a more systemic approach to race relations beyond reactive discourse. It is about time we deal with multiculturalism in a substantive framework to create the human relations infrastructure we so desperately need.

How do you deal with a neighbor whose dog barks all night long? Encourage teen-agers next door to turn the volume down on their stereos? Stop neighbors from parking their RV in front of your house? There are ways to resolve such differences without going to court. City and county departments, including law enforcement officers, handle the most common neighborhood complaints: litter, abandoned cars, zoning violations and planning enforcement.

Too often when a marriage fails, the two partners lament that they loved each other but "love was not enough." The statement points out the obvious fact that good intentions alone cannot sustain a relationship. Los Angeles' Black-Korean Alliance had lots of good intentions; unfortunately, that clearly was not enough to enable it to survive.

These programs certainly deserve to be better known and more widely used.

Samoans were "getting ready to burn down Compton," said Faletogo, who summoned other matais , or chiefs, for an emergency meeting. The chiefs faced a dilemma: How could they demand justice for what the Samoan community perceived as a grave affront without inciting more violence?

The alliance of about 30 community groups broke up last month, about six years after it formed with the aid of the Los Angeles County Human Relations Commission.
