Related, yet distinct research examines the similarities and differences of black and Latino public opinion on various policy issues. Here, the assumption is that issue or policy similarity is at least as important as the extent of groups’ attitudes toward each other. In short, both of these lines of research place greatest importance on essentially individual-level opinion and perceptions but seldom if ever address actual governmental decision making per se.

House of Representatives on issues identified as among the most important by the advocacy groups and we assess the degree to which minority lawmakers’ voting does or does not indicate conflict; we also consider whether the voting of these MCs appears to suggest support for the concerns of the “other” group.

The “bottom line” is that there is no evidence of conflict.
