"Aquí Estamos a la Fuerza". Interracial Relations in a New Latino/a Destination City



This study explores the experiences of Latino/a migrants in a multiethnic neighborhood in Durham, North Carolina (USA) - a new destination city for Latino/a migration. While low dissimilarity indices point to their spatial inclusion in this neighborhood, interview data indicate the multifaceted and sometimes contradictory ways that Latino/a migrants experience life in a new destination for immigration. For example, their positive views of their neighborhood and "americano" neighbors belie their social isolation. I identify Latino/as' inter- and intra-racial patterns of interactions in this neighborhood, which highlight the nonlinear relationship between social and spatial distance.
