"A Boy Like That," from Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim's musical West Side Story, is a song about racism in which a Puerto Rican girl tries to convince her dead boyfriend's sister to leave her Polish boyfriend and "stick to [her] own kind." In the musical, it is sung in counterpoint to "I Have a Love," the young lover's defense of her romance. It was also included in the 1976 Sondheim revue Side By Side By Sondheim.
