quote:I survived the riot of... 1992, by using good judgment ....
So did 75% of other Black folks in the area. "...the LA riot in 92 was not a black riot at all, .... According to the LAPD itself, about 60 percent of the rioters were LATINO, 25 percent were BLACK, and 13 percent were WHITE, while perhaps 2 percent were asian or unclassified, though the media represented it as nothing more than black deviance. By definition, this was a friggin' rainbow riot, with all kinds of folks involved. None of this makes it any better, but it is worth pointing out that referring to such an event as a black riot, which seemed to be implied above, is dishonest."
--so saith de white man: Tim Wise--
Anecdote does not an argument make.
