The LA riots are the answer to the question “why can’t we all just get along” — posed, ironically, by Rodney King during the riots. The late George Wallace (the comic) made fun of Rodney King’s airheaded ramble.
My favorite irony and example of stupidity came from the idiot who complained — after taking part in the incineration of the mostly Asian-owned businesses — that there wasn’t anywhere to shop, no laundrymats, no liquor stores, nothing.
The next major news item which was a direct result of those riots was the acquittal of OJ.

Race relations are better because now there is only one race there...
that there wasnt anywhere to shop, no laundrymats, no liquor stores, nothing.
Do they even speak English in that part of town now?

"Like many others, Miss Hwang's family is armed now with a Glock 17 pistol, a Beretta and a shotgun and they plan to barricade themselves in their store to fight off looters." "The Korea Young Adult Team of Los Angeles, bought five AK-47 rifles." "We made a mistake last year," said Yong Kim, the group's leader. "This time we won't. I don't know why Koreans are always a special target for African Americans, but if they are going to attack our community then we are going to pay them back."

A lot of these short bus riders are under the impression that the retail trade has margins in excess of fifty cents per dollar spent, when the real amount is in the low single digits. Which is why so many of the retailers did not bother to rebuild. Those who had adequate insurance essentially got bought out by the insurance company. Those without adequate insurance did not have the capital to rebuild. I'm betting large numbers got cleaned out because of inadequate insurance because they never thought anything like the riots would ever occur in the US of A.
