Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles, often called simply L.A., is the largest city in the state of California and the second-largest (only to New York City) in the United States. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Los Angeles metropolitan area has a total area of 4,850 square miles and is home to roughly 13 million people. Los Angeles was founded in 1781 by Spanish Captain Rivera y Moncada, yet it was not incorporated as a municipality until April 4, 1850—five months before California achieved statehood. It is the county seat of Los Angeles County. The Los Angeles area is one of the world's centers of culture, science, technology, international trade, and higher education, and is home to world-renowned institutions in a broad range of professional and cultural fields. The city and its immediate surrounding vicinity lead the world in producing popular entertainment—such as motion pictures, television, and recorded music—which forms the base of Los Angeles's international fame and global status.

    Where's the like button? So true! Let's burn, piliage, and destroy our own neighborhood and then blame these actions on someone else's actions and the outcomes of those actions! Dumbasses. Ever heard of the hamster wheel? A hamster is smart enough to get off it at some point! If the colors were turned I bet you wouldn't see a bunch of white people rioting and running around like crazy monkeys! Reginald Denny (the white guy who got the brick in the face) was almost killed in that riot and his best bud saved his life! And he was black. This has nothing to do with racism. It's all about narcissism, immaturity, and greed. "How dare you?" and "Give me more and give it to me now or I'll throw a tantrum!" That's all it was. Childish and hateful... period.

    I need some info for a class... will you help me by answering a few basic questions? - What kind of neighborhood would you consider this in 1991? - What is the demographic majority who lives in this neighborhood? - Was this Rodney King's neighborhood? - Do you know anyone who knows anything specific about this neighborhood in 1991 who can answer these questions if you can't? I'm trying for that A+. Any facts or links to facts would be so awesome!
