Nashville NAACP President frames Hispanics as threat to black identity, status

Nashville NAACP President Sonnye Dixon: "You can't forget about race. ... I think the problem with us as blacks is if we don't continue to talk about it, particularly with the growing number of Hispanics and other immigrants, we're going to be lost. And the things particularly addressed to our type of cultural sensitivity will be grouped all in the whole. ... [W]e fought for 50 years and we're going to have all the advantages go to persons who are Hispanic."
