From the Paper:"On April 29, 1992 Los Angeles erupted into what has been known as the L.A. riots. Many people have compared these riots to the Watts riots of 1965. While there are some parallels between the two occurrences, there are major differences as well.
The 1965 Watts riots may have signaled the eclipse of an old order, WASP and conservative, personified by then-Mayor Sam Yorty and Police Chief William Parker.. By the mid-1960s, a new governing coalition was already emerging, linking the black and Jewish communities, liberal on social issues, friendly to corporate priorities, and soon to be presided over by Tom Bradley. The Watts riots pointed out that black people needed a voice in government and with this new, liberal coalition it seemed likely that they would get it. There would be money and effort put into rebuilding the black community."
