- After dramatic increasing of Latino population, politicians and researchers have great interest in the inter-minority relation as well as the relation between white and minority in American Politics. Prior studies mainly concentrate on the dyadic foundation for addressing the relation. This study focuses more on the intervention of the third party racial group for exploring the racial attitude toward each other. I apply the conventional wisdom which is a friend of fried is a friend and a friend of enemy is an enemy for analyzing the Latino’s attitude toward white, and the white’s attitude toward Latino with consideration of one’s attitude toward black. For testing this hypothesis, I employ the American Mosaic Project Survey data and conduct the ordered-logistic regression model. Empirical evidence displays that in white case, we can apply the conventional wisdom, but not in Latino case.
