Also their are more African americans behind prision bars. however, I cannot find anything along these lines. It has to be something from Los Angeles ortimes Ny times. Thank you.

    Here are a number of articles from the LA Times on racism. If you need more specific articles, use google and put in LA Times, racism, prisons (or wages)

    One other element you may want to find out about is the slew of causes that were behind the 1965 Watts Riots in LA. Here are some ideas for that:

    1. Taxis and buses wouldn't go into particular parts of the city (mainly Watts) because of danger and violence.

    2. If people could get jobs but didn't have their own cars, they'd have a very hard time getting to work (since there were no buses -- and who could afford taxis?).

    3. There were no hospitals or medical facilities in the Watts area.

    The list is long. Be sure to research not only the riots that occurred after the Rodney King verdict in 1992, but also the 1965 riots. And don't limit your search terms to "los angeles riots" -- include "south la" and south central la" and "watts" in your searches.
