FYI: More than 8 in 10 Latinos in a national survey said they felt discrimination based on language or ethnicity keeps other Latinos from succeeding, and one in three said they or someone close to them had recently faced this sort of bias. The Kaiser Family Foundation and the Pew Hispanic Center surveyed about 3,000 randomly selected Latinos this spring on topics ranging from discrimination to identity to health care. They published their trove of data on Tuesday. Some highlights: more than half the respondents identified themselves with the country their family emigrated from, 9 out of 10 saw English skills as essential, and a third had been laid off or fired in the previous year.
