What is the name of the group of riots that took place in Los Angeles, California in 1965 following the arrest of a black motorist, that resulted in over forty million dollars worth of property damage?
Answer Watts Riots
The riots weren't just a reaction to the arrest. Rather, the outrage stemmed from institutional racism. Things including high unemployment, lack of jobs, housing/redlining, and poor quality schools all contributed to the cause of the riots.
