Race Riots/ Urban Riots in the United States- Document Based Question

Race Riots/ Urban Riots in the United States- Document Based Question

Race Riots/ Urban Riots in the United States Essential Question: To what degree is change dependent on Conflict? And Can Conflict be Prevented? Background: Riots are shocking events where the ordinary rules of society break down. London 2011 was gripped by the sight of burning cars and hooded youths looting shops. But why do riots happen? What reason could there be for such destruction? Is it poverty and unemployment? Are people alienated from society? Or was it simple opportunism by criminals? Are they provoked by police brutality? Or did the police do too little to stop them? Are they the sign of a breakdown in morality? Are they a product of a “culture of dependency”? Or do some people just want to see the world burn? The United States has its own history of civil unrest; and much of our history involves poverty, race, in cities. Therefore, it is worthwhile to look at some of the dynamics and causes of the major urban race riots that have occurred in the United States. Many Riots from the late 20th century till today, stand out as particularly dramatic moments in American urban history, and it is useful to tease out some of the historical contingencies and large social conditions that produced these periods of strife in order to prevent more violence from occurring. - Source: Nielsen, Author Robert. “What Causes Riots?” Whistling In The Wind, 1 Mar. 2013, whistlinginthewind.org/2013/02/28/what-causes-riots/.
