A new Loyola Marymount University poll reveals Los Angeles residents are increasingly concerned about a repeat of the 1992 race riots the roiled the city, and nearly 60 percent now think a similar outbreak is likely in the next five years.
The LMU report, titled “LA Riots 25 Years Later,” shows the highest percentage of L.A. residents who think another race riot is looming since the survey was first conducted in 1997 – a figure that’s 10 percent higher than 2012.
The statistic increased this year for the first time in two decades, and researchers believe it’s likely because of a variety of factors, “including the more polarized national dialogue on race sparked by police shootings in Ferguson, Mo., and elsewhere, as well as by the tenor of last year’s presidential election.”
“Economic disparity continues to increase, and at the end of the day, that is what causes disruption,” said Fernando Guerra, a political science professor who has worked on the survey since the 90s. “People are trying to get along and want to get along, but they understand economic tension boils over to political and social tension.”
