On May 28, 2000, the Los Angeles Times ran an article about inter-racial cooperation in Los Angeles. When many inner-city neighborhoods celebrated Cinco de Mayo festivities,"it was black-run organizations that, as part of their mission of community service, mounted many of the the Cinco de Mayo celebrations. From churces and hospitals, to service and civil-rights groups, a network of African American organizations is quietly tending the needs of mostly poor Latino newcomers who have settled in formerely black neighborhoods."
