      I remember seeing the riots on tv as a kid. Can’t lie I was afraid but I was glad that black people made a stand against that ruling that set Rodney King’s attackers free.

      I have not had a chance to watch the airing, but I lived in South Central during the riots so I’m kind of excited to see how VH1 & Snoop depict the riots.

      People/film makers/etc – Love to depict the riots as some kind of ‘come up’ for black/latino folks because they were looting, but what people don’t realize is that at a certain point during the riots looting also became a primary means of survival. When I think back to that shit it’s kind of crazy to image living through it.
