Jeff Wallenfeldt, the author of the article published on Britannica, wrote, “Although many Angelenos in the late 20th century prided themselves on their city’s ethnic diversity, there was a strong feeling on Los Angeles’s minority communities that the city’s predominantly white police force practiced racial profiling and engaged in racist brutality against African Americans and Hispanics” (Wallenfeldt). CNN reported that five days after the riots started, over 50 people were dead and approximately 2,000 injured. The damage from the riot was estimated to cost around one billion dollars (“Los Angeles Riots Fast Facts”).

Every child gets “The REAL Talk,” but every talk is different. For most African Americans the the talk includes how the world is not a fair place if a person is different, if African Americans want to get somewhere, they have to work twice as hard, and In the US last year, 223 African Americans were killed by police due to police brutality. One third of those people were unarmed, and should not have been seen as a threat, but they were still killed. 12 of these people were under the age of 18. African Americans should not have to be scared to go outside any day thinking they might not make it home.
The Cincinnati Race Riots has been starting in the late 1800’s which the author believes it is still occurring in today’s world. Police Brutality is one of the main reasons for rioting and fighting.

"One important demographic change underlay the experience of African-Americans during the Roosevelt years. The migration of African-Americans from the South to the urban North, which began in 1910, continued in the 1930s and accelerated in the 1940s during World War II. As a result, black Americans during the Roosevelt years lived for the most part either in the urban North or in the rural South, although the Depression chased increasingly large numbers of blacks to southern cities as well. In the North, blacks encountered de facto segregation, racism, and discrimination in housing and public services; nevertheless, they were able to vote and had better job opportunities.
A second reason why african americans are protesting on black lives matter is because african americans are being killed by the police officers and nothing 's being done.”Nearly 1 in 3 black people killed by police in 2015 were identified as unarmed, though the actual number is likely higher due to underreporting”(Mapping 1).We feel as if we are being lynched.People feel as if nothing 's changed since slavery.African americans can 't even trust going to the cops nomore.Its to the point where we can 't even drive or walk down the street without getting stopped by a police officer.For example there was an african american that was walking down the street with a arizona and a pack of skittles he was then stopped by a police officer killed.Justice was not served for the

The Ku Klux Klan is not as big as it used to be but that doesn’t keep many races from living in fear. These are many reasons that over the past few years the Ku Klux Klan has developed majorly in many ways, and how they have caused other minorities to live with physical and mental issues.

With around 2 million individuals unaccounted for, more than 240,000 individuals are constrained into neighboring Chad, and an expected 480,000 individuals are slaughtered. Many have died or have been murdered, but what 's going on to the rest? Much of the population have fled their homes to camps in surrounding cities to live but are still being watched by the Janjaweed army outside the camps.

The primary goal of Project C was peaceful protest, but it didn't stay peaceful for long.
