    During this period, there was intense racism in Los Angeles where African Americans were viewed as dangerous people. African Americans had little to no freedom because if they left their neighborhood to go to a white neighborhood like Lynwood and Alameda, they would get interrogated like a criminal. In the documentary, Peralta shows the Watts Riot of 1965 as an example of urban unrest. According to Healey (2013), he compares race riots during the 19th century and the urban unrest of 1965 by…
