    With their souls of patent leather,
    they come down the road.
    Hunched and nocturnal,
    Where they breathe they impose,
    silence of dark rubber,
    and fear of fine sand.

    New York is a meeting place for every race in the world, but the Chinese, Armenians, Russians, and Germans remain foreigners. So does everyone except the blacks. There is no doubt but that the blacks exercise great influence in North America, and, no matter what anyone says, they are the most delicate, spiritual element in that world.
    —Federico García Lorca (1898–1936)
