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 have added a video page that includes links to documentaries on the LA Riots, Gang History, and the Crack Epidemic. I still want to add some lessons in, update the Green Book, and work on typos and editing. More coming soon, as always!
