I was recently asked this question...here is my response:
My basic argument is that the only thing that changed has been the crime rates and demographics of South Central. Crime is down significantly since 1992. It is about 1/3 of what it was in term of raw homicide numbers. Also, South Central is by far a majority Latino area now. It was much "Blacker" in 1992.
The basic causes of the the riots are unchanged though. To understand this, the causes of the riot must be understood.

I updated the banner to reflect the changes in the address. The site address has been changed from a yola-based address to http://southcentralhistory.com. I also created links on the front page. I want to add in the sources soon. I may have to wait on the lessons plans for a little while due to losing my flash drive!
