Washington Post Peruvian Campaign Opens Up Race Issue: "The population in Peru is 82 percent Amerindian and mixed race. The white minority, which generally controls economics and politics, amounts to 15 percent, with the remainder divided among small Asian and black minorities. Discrimination against the 45 percent of Peruvians of pure Indian blood and an additional percentage of mixed-race Peruvians is strong. This is particularly true in Lima, Peru's capital, 350 miles north of Cuzco." See the remarks in the last entry yesterday for some examples of racism in the campaign.
