Law and Politics in Post-Modern California: Coalition or Conflict between African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latina/os?

Kevin R. Johnson, "Law and Politics in Post-Modern California: Coalition or Conflict between African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latina/os?" Ethnicities 4:3 (2004): 381-401. Although this article is a few years old, it remains topicial.  Here is an abstract:

This article considers the future of relations between African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latina/os in the political process in the United States and evaluates the prospects for social change. To do so, this article focuses on Los Angeles, California, which for a number of years has experienced the demographic change that is beginning to be replicated across the nation. Particular attention is paid to interethnic conflict and the need to redefine the conventional ‘civil rights’ discourse to reflect the changing socio-economic landscape of postmodern California.
