Listeners Take on Struggles of Puerto Ricans in NY

Friday, November 27, 2009

Last Friday on Morning Edition we told a story about the struggles of Puerto Ricans in New York. Statistics show that despite many success stories, they are among the poorest and least educated New Yorkers. The story sparked an energetic conversation in the comments section of reporter Marianne McCune's blog post. And we wanted you to hear a sample of their responses.

If you'd like to hear the story, read the comments, or participate in the conversation, you can check it out on our news blog.
