HOW HAS LA EVOLVED SINCE THE RIOTS?
Angelenos have a variety of ways to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the LA riots. CBS2 has a list of all the activities and events happening Sunday.
LA Times food critic Jonathan Gold makes the case that the LA riots inspired a culinary upheaval. “After the riots, L.A.’s insularity somehow fostered restaurants with a strength of purpose, even stronger and more specific than they had previously been,” says the Pulitzer Prize winning critic.
South LA’s schools are the lowest-ranked in the school district, the unemployment rate is at 20 percent and lots of the money that was promised to the community after the riots never materialized, reports CBS. The “empty lots have remained as scars 20 years later.”
LAPD reform after the LA riots: In a live chat for the LA Times, civil rights attorney Connie Rice says, “When I look at Oakland, we’re light years ahead.”
A survey from the Center for the Study of Los Angeles at Loyola Marymount University shows that Angelenos think racial groups are getting along “very well,” and that riots are unlikely to break out again like they did in 1992.
Skid Row reformer General Jeff says that while Downtown LA has improved since the riots, Skid Row and South LA haven’t. “You start to wonder, is it because those communities’ majority is African American? Are African Americans doing it to themselves?” Jeff asks Neon Tommy. “Or is the funding not reaching the people?”
