One of Los Angeles' most notorious street gangs, Florencia 13, stands accused of targeting African Americans — even those without gang affiliations.

Farai Chideya talks with Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca about a string of indictments against the gang, which include racially motivated homicides.

They are joined by NPR's Mandalit del Barco and L.A.-based writer and journalist Earl Ofari Hutchinson, author of The Latino Challenge to Black America.
