The Los Angeles Times' Gregory Rodriguez quotes Professor Richard Thompson Ford in a piece about the "Clinton campaign's assertion that Latinos historically haven't voted for black candidates":

"It could make black voters more hostile to Latinos," [Ford] said. "And Latinos who hear it might think that they somehow ought to be at odds with blacks. These kinds of statements generate interracial tensions."
