Los Angeles 1992: Civil Unrest and Media

 

Los Angeles 1992: Civil Unrest and Media
8 Jul 2012 - 4:56pm

 

Twenty years ago the media opened our minds and pushed our limits when we witnessed the brutal attack from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD in English) on the defenseless and unarmed Rodney King.  The verdict: the police were innocent.  The consequence: civil disobedience.  People took to the streets infuriated and sick of seeing history repeat itself.  They stole from their neighbors, ran from business to business taking everything they could, everything within their reach, and the owners defended themselves with arms.  The heart of Los Angeles was in flames and chaos.  This lasted for ten whole days.  And what did we see on television?  Images of Reginald Denny, a white man, who was hit, and Latinos, blacks and Koreans at war.  What we didn’t see was an investigation by the media that showed how the police were immobile, and did not help those who most needed their service at the time, and who were only ready to respond in affluent parts of Los Angeles (the west side of the city).  They also didn’t investigate what had been happening for decades, what had caused the last disturbance in 1968, or that conditions had stayed the same, or worse.  These factors, inequality of healthcare, education, housing, unemployment, and racism, were dividing the Latino, black and Korean communities and were the root cause of the injustices.  When the fire settled down, community leaders and neighbors began to unite, analyze, and respond to what had happened.  Various organizations were created and those that already existed were restructured, to create awareness of those social factors.  Some examples are the alliances formed between Latino, black, and Korean communities, the prohibition of reopening liquor stores, increase in the number of food markets, and the transformation of south Los Angeles.  Have those factors that affect our communities disappeared?  Not totally.  But the way we are able to respond and bring light to our truth and inform our realities has.(Images taken from the internet)

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I am one of the people in charge of the activities in our district. Since we had to do a Charity activity, we decided to agree that one of IDEPSCA's day center would be the ones today for us. Karen and Ali are both members of the church, I am also a member of the church. The case being is that it felt great to do something good for people or someone. Not everyone gets a chance to do this and thanks to IDEPSCA, Nathalie Cruz Orellano, Mario Lopez, & Marlom Portillo for allowing us to do this activity.

Soy miembro de La Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Últimos Días y yo soy uno de los responsables de las actividades de nuestro distrito. Desde que tuvimos que hacer una actividad de la Caridad, se decidió de acuerdo en que uno de los centro de día de IDEPSCA serían los que hoy en día para nosotros. Karen y Ali son miembros de la iglesia, yo(Diana) también soy un miembro de la iglesia. El caso de ser es que se sentía muy bien para hacer algo bueno para la gente o alguien. No todo el mundo tiene la oportunidad de hacer esto y gracias a IDEPSCA, Nathalie Cruz Orellano, Mario López, y Portillo Marlom por permitirnos realizar esta actividad. La gente en el centro de trabajo y en las esquinas de Home Depot fueron muy agradecidos, fue muy agradable ver sonrisas en los rostros de los pueblos. Hicimos bolsas de almuerzo con mantequilla de maní y mermelada, sándwiches de atún, botellas de agua, galletas o golosinas de diferentes tipos, las manzanas, y chips de todo tipo.

 

Espero que pronto se repita esto.

February, Black History Month.

During the last 85 years, different events are celebrated throughout the month of February to highlight the undeniable contributions African-Americans have made to the United States. The date was instituted through the efforts of Dr. Carter G. Woodson from Harvard University who in 1926 chose the month of February because it coincided with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass', an oustanding leader that fought for the freedom of his people even while being a slave himself, and Abraham Lincoln, the President that abolished slavery after the US CIvil War.

February, Black History Month.
