Chapter 5 considers intergroup relations between Mexicans and African Americans in Winston-Salem. Contrary to previous studies, this chapter shows that a sense of shared minority status coupled with an absence of resource competition facilitated a high level of positive intergroup relations and social support between these racial minorities and increased the social distance between both groups and whites. This chapter describes the on-the-ground interactions and institutional efforts that shaped intergroup relations and make the case that status is key in formulating relationships among blacks, whites, and Latinos, producing what I call minority linked fate.

Keywords:   intergroup relations, African Americans, minority linked fate, Mexicans, Winston-Salem, whites, racial status, resource competition
