Latinos and African Americans together account for more than 20 percent of the country's population. Instead of uniting with the growing numbers of Latinos, a new book says that African Americans feel threatened by them. Can they build a coalition or will the two groups remain divided? Join Neal Conan and his guests to look at the conflict between Latinos and African Americans.

Guests:

Nicolas Vaca
*Author of The Presumed Alliance: The Unspoken Conflict Between Latinos and Blacks and What it Means for America
