Race and ethnicity

Los Angeles is home to people from more than 140 countries speaking 224 different identified languages.
[114] Ethnic enclaves like Chinatown, Historic Filipinotown, Koreatown, Little Armenia, Little Ethiopia, Tehrangeles, Little Tokyo, and Thai Town provide examples of the polyglot character of Los Angeles.
According to the 2010 Census, the racial makeup of Los Angeles included: 1,888,158 Whites (49.8%), 365,118 African Americans (9.6%), 28,215 Native Americans (0.7%), 426,959 Asians (11.3%), 5,577 Pacific Islanders (0.1%), 902,959 from other races (23.8%), and 175,635 (4.6%) from two or more races.[113] Hispanics or Latinos of any race were 1,838,822 persons (48.5%).
Non-Hispanic whites were 28.7% of the population in 2010,[113] compared to 86.3% in 1940.[115] Mexicans make up the largest ethnic group of Latinos at 31.9% of Los Angeles' population, followed by Salvadorans (6.0%) and Guatemalans (3.6%). The Latino population is spread throughout the city of Los Angeles and its metropolitan area but it is most heavily concentrated in the East Los Angeles region, which has a long established Mexican American and Central American community.
The largest Asian ethnic groups are Filipinos (3.2%) and Koreans (2.9%), which have their own established ethnic enclaves−Koreatown in the Wilshire Center and Historic Filipinotown. Chinese people, which make up 1.8% of Los Angeles' population, reside mostly outside of Los Angeles city limits and rather in the San Gabriel Valley of eastern Los Angeles County, but make a sizable presence in the city, notably in Chinatown. Chinatown and Thaitown are also home to many Thais and Cambodians, which make up 0.3% and 0.1% of Los Angeles' population, respectively. Japanese comprise 0.9% of L.A.'s population, and have an established Little Tokyo in the city's downtown, and another significant community of Japanese Americans is located in the Sawtelle district of West Los Angeles. Vietnamese make up 0.5% of Los Angeles' population. Indians make up 0.9% of the city's population.
The city of Los Angeles and its metropolitan area are home to a large Middle Eastern population, including Armenians and Iranians, partially residing in enclaves like Little Armenia and Tehrangeles.
African Americans have the largest establishment in South Los Angeles, including the industrial neighborhoods of Crenshaw and Watts.[116] In 1970, the Census Bureau reported city's population as 17.9% black, 61.1% non-Hispanic white and 17.1% Hispanic.[115] However, since the 1980s, there has been a large influx of immigration from Mexico and Central America which have outnumbered the blacks in South Los Angeles. South Los Angeles, as well as neighboring communities such as the city of Compton that were home to predominant African American populations are now transforming into Hispanic communities.[117]
Pacific Islanders make up 0.1% of Los Angeles' population, and are concentrated in southwestern Los Angeles County, namely in Long Beach and Carson, which are home to thousands of Samoan Americans.[118]

The Mexicans are literally chasing the blacks from L.A. Even the Crips and Bloods admit they are being "exterminated." Oh well, blacks have had centuries to bring themselves out of the gutter and have resisted all attempts to bring them into mainstream America, preferring to wait for handouts. The Mexicans will do much better, I'm sure of it.

SocietyShooting of Trayvon MartinLos Angeles
LOS ANGELES (AP)-- Protesters ran through Los Angeles streets Monday night, breaking windows, attacking people on sidewalks and at one point raiding a Wal-Mart store, while others blocked a major freeway in the San Francisco Bay Area in the third night of demonstrations in California over George Zimmerman's Florida acquittal in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Thirteen people were arrested after multiple acts of vandalism and several assaults in Los Angeles' Crenshaw District, Mayor Eric Garcetti and Police Chief Charlie Beck said at a news conference.
Garcetti and Beck didn't elaborate on the assaults or any injuries, but at least one man could be seen in the street with a head injury.
More than 300 officers were called to the scene and were at first slow to directly engage protesters in an attempt to allow a peaceful end to the demonstration, Beck said. But the chief said police would take a much stricter posture in the coming nights.
"This will not be allowed to continue," Beck said.
Several hundred mostly peaceful protesters gathered Monday night at Leimert Park southwest of downtown LA, many of them chanting, praying and singing.
But a smaller group of between 100 and 150 people splintered off and began blocking traffic on nearby Crenshaw Boulevard, some of them jumping on cars and breaking windows at liquor stores and fast food outlets.
Several protesters ran into a Wal-Mart store, where they knocked down displays before store security chased them out, and police began guarding the door.
Tonya Williams was shopping with her daughter when the protesters burst in and security briefly locked down the store.
"We thought we were going to be stuck in there," Williams said. "We saw the merchandise all thrown around. They had pulled the rack down, and there was merchandise all over the floor."
TV news helicopters showed some people kicking and punching others along the street, including two people sitting on a bus bench.
Police declared the gathering an unlawful assembly about three hours after it began, and most of the crowd left the street.
Garcetti, who returned early from an East Coast trip because of the demonstrations, praised the "overwhelming majority" who protested peacefully.
"We are a better city than what we have seen tonight in the hands of a few people," the mayor said.
In Oakland, dozens of demonstrators briefly blocked all lanes of Interstate 880 at the tail end of rush hour, stopping traffic in both directions for several minutes before lanes were cleared by authorities. Several protesters laid their bicycles on the ground in front of stopped cars.
"You've got to go. You will go to jail," one police officer shouted at demonstrators who were blocking traffic, the Oakland Tribune reported. However, police decided not to make arrests as the marchers, chanting "Justice for Trayvon Martin," were directed back to surface streets.
Later, another group tried to march up the onramp to Interstate 580 before being turned away by Oakland police and California Highway Patrol officers.
The freeway protesters broke off from a larger group organized via social media that gathered at Oakland City Hall about an hour earlier.
More than a half-dozen people were arrested on charges of vandalism and assault, both felony and misdemeanor, Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said.

More than a half-dozen people were arrested on charges of vandalism and assault, both felony and misdemeanor, Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said.
Over the weekend, demonstrators in Oakland and Los Angeles blocked traffic and clashed with police in protests over a Florida jury's acquittal of neighborhood watch volunteer Zimmerman in the shooting death of the unarmed black teenager.
Police shot beanbag rounds and arrested six people — including one on suspicion of assaulting an officer — while breaking up relatively small demonstrations before dawn.
No injuries were reported to either demonstrators or officers.
Most demonstrations around the state were peaceful.
Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer sent a letter Monday to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder supporting the Justice Department decision to review the case to determine whether Martin's civil rights were violated.
"I respect the fact that the jury has spoken ... but I don't think this should be the last word," Boxer wrote in the letter.

Los Angeles Suburb Heads for Dubious Title: U.S. Murder Capital
By Greg Baumann and Daniel Taub
Jan. 23 (Bloomberg)-- Compton, California, is a Los Angeles suburb of single-family homes and apartment buildings, crisscrossed by tree-lined boulevards with Mexican food stands and grocery stores on the corners.
It's also a battleground for drug gangs, police say, and may have the highest murder rate in the U.S.
Homicides in Compton soared 72 percent last year, with 67 murders in a city of 97,000 people. That probably outstripped the rate in places such as Camden, New Jersey, that are perennially at risk of being branded as the country's murder capital, says Scott Morgan, president of Morgan Quitno Press, which compiles crime statistics.
Each killing in Compton, which is patrolled by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, costs about $1 million to investigate and prosecute, says R. Doyle Campbell, assistant sheriff. The crimes also scare away business, says Jack Kyser, chief economist with the nonprofit Economic Development Corp. of Los Angeles County.
``They're trying to grow their economy, but headlines like this would obviously make a business think twice,'' he said.
That stifles growth in the city, Kyser says. Compton's median household income of $31,819 is about 25 percent less than the U.S. average.
Compton's economy, once supported by heavy industry, is dominated by distribution companies that take advantage of its location along a freeway between the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and inland cities. The city had 8.4 percent unemployment in November, more than the 5.1 percent in California and 4.8 percent national rate, according to the state Employment Development Department.
Against the Trend
The rise in murders contrasts with declines in many major cities. Los Angeles had 250 in the first half of 2005, down from 269 a year earlier, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. New York's homicides fell 14 percent to 238 in the period.
In 2004, Camden had the highest murder rate, 60.8 per 100,000 people, according to Lawrence, Kansas-based Morgan Quitno. Compton was seventh, at 40.2. That jumped to 69.1 last year. National listings from the FBI come out in October.
Gang Wars
``Everywhere you go in the city, it's someone's gang area,'' Sergeant Vincent Plair said while on patrol in Compton last month. About 50 gangs vie for control of the crack cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana markets, he says.
The crimes frustrate sheriff's deputies who resorted to gun trade-ins in an effort to get weapons off the streets. They collected 610 guns last month, including Uzis, Tec-9s and AK-47s. In exchange, they gave gift certificates for as much as $100 at retailers such as Circuit City Stores Inc., Toys ``R'' Us Inc. and Ralphs Grocery Co.

The crimes frustrate sheriff's deputies who resorted to gun trade-ins in an effort to get weapons off the streets. They collected 610 guns last month, including Uzis, Tec-9s and AK-47s. In exchange, they gave gift certificates for as much as $100 at retailers such as Circuit City Stores Inc., Toys ``R'' Us Inc. and Ralphs Grocery Co.

The killings didn't end. The final slaying of the year took place New Year's Eve, when 19-year-old Jose Casillas was shot and killed at 1:35 a.m. outside a party. The case remains unsolved, says Captain Ray Peavy, who runs the homicide bureau.

Murders increased partly because gang members are shifting to sidewalk assassinations rather than Southern California's signature drive-by shootings, says Captain Eric Hamilton, who runs the Compton station for the sheriff's department. About 120 officers work at the station.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca last week activated a task force that will devote 15 homicide detectives to Compton cases and add five narcotics investigators and 31 gang officers to the city's force, Campbell says.

Price of Violence

Compton's elected leaders, not the sheriff's department, are responsible for failing to curb murders in the community, says Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton, who has cut violent crime in his jurisdiction for three consecutive years.

``Compton is one of the most violent couple of square miles in the country,'' Bratton said this month after a news conference in downtown Los Angeles.``You get what you pay for, and Compton has to wake up to the fact that they need to find the resources to fund more police.''

The sheriff's department took over patrols in the city in 2002 after then-Mayor Omar Bradley disbanded Compton's 113-member police force, saying it was too expensive and ineffective. He later was convicted of misappropriating public funds.

Compton's city council this month approved allocating an additional $225,000 to pay for more deputies. Mayor Eric Perrodin, a former police officer in the city who also was a Los Angeles County deputy district attorney, didn't return four calls and an e-mail seeking comment.

Citizen Fears

Besides gun drives and increased patrols, deputies in Compton are trying to change a culture among some in the city who abide murder because of fear of retribution, Hamilton says.

The department has set up block clubs to establish ties between officers and residents, including one on Poinsettia Avenue led by Brenda Postelle, 64.

When a shooting took place on her street last year for the first time, Postelle, a retired telecommunications worker who has lived in Compton for 45 years, and neighbors called an emergency block club meeting. Deputies attended and put a dummy patrol car on the street for three days, she says.

``If we see something out there, someone out there shooting someone or doing a crime, what good will it do to turn my back?'' Postelle asked.``It's the citizens' fault as well as the person who is doing it.''

LA is a city of angels and assholes there is no in between you either are or you aren't. We are a culturally diverse city that is beginning to tear down the walls of de-facto segregation of cultural communities. Crime is at a historic low despite reports above from 2006 saying otherwise. Compton is a joke. It's not ghetto. It is a paradise compared to areas of philadelphia and baltimore. Gang members out here are gun toting 14 year olds who go around scribbling on things marking their territory for who knows what anymore. Areas once gang infested are now revitalizing and going through gentrification. The younger generations are steering away from the traps that caught previous generations. There is a realization of the great public transportation we had in the 40's and the incurable transportation debacle the freeways caused out here and the financial death grip car ownership can bring. Today more than ever people walk in LA to get somewhere. LA is a hard city and it walls people off and makes them reclusive. That coupled with arrogance makes assholes of many Angelino's. There are angels a plenty here though cleaning up and soon a majority of us will be as pleasant as our climate.

Packs of young people cause chaos in Hollywood

LOS ANGELES (AP)— Packs of young people rampaged through Hollywood, knocked down people and stole cellphones and other items before a police sweep halted the marauding and arrested a dozen people, police said Wednesday.
Calls began coming in at around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday that youths — possibly organized through social media — were robbing people and stealing T-shirts and other goods from businesses, mainly on Hollywood Boulevard, Lt. Ray Valois said.
Fifteen to 20 young men and women were "attacking victims and taking property," he said. "Some people may have been knocked down or punched."
However, no serious injuries were reported.
As many as 40 people may have been involved, splitting into smaller groups and reforming as they looted people nearby, Valois said.
Surveillance video aired on television showed youths roaming along the famed Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Police Department had redeployed numerous officers to the city's Crenshaw District after violence broke out the previous night during protests of the George Zimmerman acquittal in Florida. Cmdr. Andrew Smith said it was believed the youths took advantage of that "and decided that this would be a good night to come up to Hollywood and act a little crazy."
Several people told journalists that they were surrounded by groups of youths that forced them to hand over cellphones, a watch and other items.
"I was filming celebrities coming out and all of a sudden I was approached by this group of people and one got my phone," Lori Aceves told KNBC-TV. "And all I know is this lady next to me — I have no idea who she was — but she grabbed me by the arm and she tucked me in and she moved me to a different store."
Her iPhone and other stolen items were later found in a backpack, the station said.
More than 100 police officers were called in and most arrests were made within five minutes, but officers swept the area for about an hour before the operation was completed, Valois said.
Twelve people — all but one under the age of 18 — were arrested and none lived in Hollywood, he said. Eleven were held on suspicion of robbery and one for receiving stolen property.
It appeared that the attackers were loosely organized through social media, including some Web messages urging people to gather in Hollywood "to riot," Valois said.
"They said,'let's go to Hollywood and have a riot,'" Smith said, referring to a specific group of kids who communicated on social media to organize the disturbance.
Other police officials said investigators had not yet determined the overall role social media had played in the disturbance.
It appeared that those arrested knew each other and while they may have arranged the rampage "it was not an open call," officer Bruce Borihanh said.
"It's more of an individual group action rather than any kind of social flash mob," he said.
The attacks followed the arrests of 14 people a night earlier in the Crenshaw District after about 150 people ran through the streets, jumped on cars, tried to break store windows and punched bystanders. A Wal-Mart store was vandalized. Police said that group split off from a peaceful protest over Zimmerman's acquittal in the shooting of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.
It was unclear whether the Hollywood marauders were inspired by either that violence or anger at Zimmerman's acquittal.
"None of these individuals was protesting, there was no physical evidence of that," Valois said. "They may be acting out."
Police plan to begin releasing images from security cameras in hope that the public can identify those who got away, Smith said.
The area may have been chosen because "Hollywood's open late, there's a lot of people here, we get a lot of media attention here," Valois said.
"I would not allow this to discourage any tourists or anyone coming to Hollywood Boulevard," he said. "I still believe it's a safe place."
Two protests Tuesday night in the Crenshaw District and downtown were peaceful.
