2). After the unnecessary, portrayed as “defensive” actions of Wilson, protests rattled the country regarding Caucasian police brutality towards African American men. Following Ferguson, police brutality was exemplified later in Baltimore. In “Nonviolence as Compliance,” Ta Nehisi Coates, a cultural and social journalist for The Atlantic, a well known developing cultural and literary commenting American Magazine, described the Baltimore events. Freddie Gray, a young African American from South Baltimore, was found with a switchblade walking on the street and was relentlessly beat into the ground by officers until his spinal cord was fatally fractured (Ta-Nehisi 7).

A lot of attention and controversy surrounded this trial just because of how it hit America. The trial involved lingering racial tensions in America which seperated many Americans. The trial ultimately led to the riots of L.A. and the total destruction of the city. The riots lasted for days and resulted in thousands of dollars and even lives lost. These riots were so big that the United States National guard had to be called in order to calm down the people of Los Angeles.
Thesis From the mid 1910s to the early 1960s there were many riots that occured, because of racial tensions built up between the the whites and the blacks world wide. Coming from Will Brown being accused of rapping a young white girl, and to Eugene Williams having rocks thrown at him causing him to drown. Segregation at this time was unjustified due to racism still being heavily considered as the right thing to do. These riots caused the United States to be even more segregated, due to unequal rights and no laws being created at the time to help and protect African Americans. During these riots there were cases of police brutality and whites being able to do whatever they choose to do, because they felt as if it was a justified reason to stop the African Americans from rioting.
The 1960’s and before was a miserable time for the LGBT+ community, with simply expressing love being illegal. Police stormed into gay clubs to arrest said “criminals,” which is exactly what happened on June 28, 1969. The community was already fed up with the past - this just fueled the fire. Danny Garvin, a Stonewall rioter, said, “Something snapped. It’s like, this is not right.” Indeed this was how all protestors, gay straight or otherwise, felt in this moment.

In the case of the rise of black power, black muslims also known as the nation of islam “founded by Elijah Muhammad in the 1930’s” preached black superiority and separatism from an evil white world.

At the Glenrowan station, Ned tried to derail the train tracks to send all the innocent police men crashing for doing their duty.

This march will become known as Bloody Sunday...because of the violent attack that took place on blacks by the police (Wallenfeldt). This march was watched by millions of Americans and through this march, many whites saw just how cruel the blacks were treated. King organized another march on the same bridge that Bloody Sunday took place, and in this march hundreds of whites traveled to Selma to participate in the march. Another example of the movie portraying history right is when we see Johnson giving his famous “we shall overcome” speech, when confirming the equality between black and
Almost immediately, the rides were met with opposition as they began their journey into the southern states, with the first attacks on riders coming in Rock Hill, California. The riders however, undaunted by the growing opposition facing them, continued on to Alabama, where on May 14th they experienced more extreme hostilities. Riders in Anniston stopped to change their tyres, which were slashed at the city’s bus station, when their bus was firebombed and burnt before the riders were brutally beaten by a mob of almost 200 people .

Also, the bombing impacted the support to end segregation greatly and adding more support from many angry people because of the four innocent little girl’s
People acted out of anger and displeasure in the moment so they fought and fought, One race was tired of being mistreated so they tried to make a difference, the other race didn’t want anything to change and wanted them to stay in their miserable place. I’ve read online many events where a black person and a white person did the same crime but there’s this thing called white privilege which let’s them get away or won’t suffer as much. I think this is very much sad because it’s been almost a century since the Race Riots have started and almost nothing changed except African-American getting the equal amount of rights. That’s sure an improvement but people are still immature and uneducated enough to learn how to not be racist, I see nothing wrong with black people but there are people who still do. Seeing how today’s society is still unchanged in some areas, I still personally think the Chicago Race Riots would still have started even without Eugene William’s death but at a much later
what they thought was the solution was to start breaking things and protesting in violence like a child would. The riot nearly had three dozen juveniles arrested and more than 200 adults were taken into custody after people set fires to cars and businesses, with lots of looted stores.

The 2015 Ferguson riots are another example.
Because police brutality has increased to such extremes, misconduct has had many impacts on society and the law. Currently, there is great mistrust between citizens and police departments.
