this is a race riot. just read a book that says they are back. and they are.
The Hunger Games features a race riot as well. One of the mostly black districts rises up violently when their tribute, a young black girl, is killed (naturally by a white male tribute). They smash the place up pretty good before being hosed down civil-rights style by the lily white fascist police. It’s amazing how syncronized the media are in justifying and provoking this stuff.
