"...However, by focusing only on the Rodney King and Reginald Denny incidences, whereby white cops patrolling affluent suburbs beat a black motorist
and blacks later take revenge on a white trucker in the ghetto, the 1992 Los Angeles riots may give some a misleading impression of an event of black versus white.

Some scholars consider the 1992 Los Angeles riots as America’s first multi-cultural riots (Anderson et al. 1992; Kwong 1992). In fact, writer Wanda
Coleman states,“[A]s I was a witness, people—of
nearly every ethnic description—were in the
streets smiling as they looted”(2002, 37). If this is true, then the nature of rioting in the United States, particularly in Los Angeles, is
growing out of the black/white paradigm
of the 1960s and developing into something new and more diverse.

To support this notion of multi-cultural riots, Petersilia and Abrahamse (1993) analyzed 7,056-arrest records from April 30, 1992 to May 9, 1992 and found that Latinos made up fifty-one percent of those arrested (see Figure 4).

This not only adds to the complexity of studying riots, but also debunks any notion that the 1992 Los Angeles riots were exclusively an
African-American uprising...."

The civil disturbance occurred in two distinct phases. The arson phase was a classic replay of the long, hot summers of the mid 1960s and showed elements of the solidaristic and expressive behavior so common to that period and did not have any noticeable Latino participation. The generalized looting phase, which did include noticeable Latino involvement, was individualistic and instrumental, akin to looting that often takes place in the case of a natural disaster.

Abstract. The role of Latinos in the Los Angeles civil disturbance of 1992 has not been explored. An early explanation was that Latino residents of South Central ...

Latinos took no part in arson or violence. Just the looting 4 days after.

Latinos were the initial victims of the crowd violence, one third of those killed, one third of those arrested. One third to one half of the businesses looted were Latino owned, according to a 1993 report prepared by the Latinos Futures Research Group for the Latino Coalition for a New Los Angeles.

In "Latinos and the Future of Los Angeles," the authors note that "curiously, many largely Latinos areas were untouched by the violence, even though those areas were inhabited by poorly educated Latinos living and working in poverty," the same reasoning used by many other researchers to explain the violence that erupted in the Black community.

"The vast majority of Latinos were not involved in the looting or arson," according to David Hayes-Bautista, Ph.D., one of the reports lead authors. Dr. Hayes-Bautista is currently Professor of Medicine and Director of the Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture at the School of Medicine, UCLA.

EGP spoke to Dr. Hayes-Bautista and asked him about the Latino involvement in the riots, and whether he thought the same conditions that sparked the unrest are still present today.

"The 1992 riots were essentially two different riots," he told EGP. From a sociological perspective, there were two disturbances, in one Latinos were participants and in the other, they were the victims, he said.

Dr. Hayes-Bautista said while Latinos did participate in the rioting and looting, it's important to note that they were not a part of the initial outbreak of violence....

after the riots were over, we saw many instances of Latinos returning the items they had stolen," he noted. They went back to the business and apologized, he said, but again, that was in the areas where the sense of community was the strongest.

Latinos, like African Americans, had many complaints about how they were treated by the LAPD and the Sheriffs; it's something they had in common.

Yet, during the riots, many of the residents of East Los Angeles came to the aid of the LAPD and the National Guard, according to a story in EGP newspapers.

"LAPD Thanks E.L.A. Residents," May 7, 1992: Although there were a few minor incidents of looting, the majority of citizens continued to show restraint and respect the law," said Capt. Bob Medina.

"They were quick to come to the aid of police and the National Guard, and, in many cases, provide food, drink and lodging at no cost for the officers who were protecting their homes and businesses," Medina said.

Brainiac, I disagree with Dr. Hayes-Bautista's secondary conclusion: It's NOT important to note that they were not a part of the initial outbreak of violence. Insurance claims adjusters and police officers don't care if the store was burned out and looted by a guy named "Ricky Sanchez" within the first 6 hours of the riot....or if he waited until 9 hours after the first 911 calls came in.

The most important point is what Dr. Hayes-Bautista is honest enough to admit: Latinos did participate in the rioting and looting.

I would just add that arrest records indicate they participated quite HEAVILY in the rioting and looting. LOL
