god. doesn't walk around in south-central pretty much. on script and books will be more than thirty odd years one of the longest one more time in history of this country. and can always be someone else is ready to kill me because of where i'm going to take over here and kill one of them when they come over me you want to find me born until you came dogs run away get out of this what are you going want to hear over the past twenty years alone in the only county there's been over fifteen thousand game related that. if you had fifteen thousand
people killing each other in any other country there would be diplomats there would be mediators that would go to the u.n. . have been a good album born and raised and i'm a die and. i would choose my destiny my destination show me. in the southern portion of the richest city in the richest state in america is a cluster of neighborhoods the streets in boulevards laid out in a grid between the concrete ribbons of freeway. two miles to the west is a pacific. highway and the beaches that money. five miles to the north jewel deal
drive never leave those. seven miles to the east to corner of hollywood by twenty five miles south those orange county and disneyland. surrounded by the california dream this region has sown legs. on its streets there up to the country's most violent outbreak of civil unrest not once twice it's also the home of america's two most infamous african-american gangs crips and bloods is bloody forty year feud has taken five times as many lives as the long running sectarian conflict in northern ireland it was devastating body count continues today. but in south los angeles. life wasn't always this way.
to. the one nine hundred fifty s. three friends from south l.a. ron byrd become us grew up reaching for their piece of the american dream. the most significant thing was when i went to join the boy scouts good boy scouts of america. my mother taking up to the scout to be good your robert plant where the original bill if one thousand nine hundred thirty three to nine hundred eighty three parked in our neighborhood right there go up there to join the boy scouts my mother did not the scout master. it was nice but he chose my mother well i don't know what some of the parents might object because it was a white troop. to the state be prepared do
a good turn daily the scout is trustworthy loyal friend it could just kind of be careful brave clean river that's the boy scouts of america bunch of races. with names like the businessmen gladiators and slawson black teenagers began forming their own street plants returned. to the neighborhood was situated in an area where we were assigned and designated pollution won't come from sixty second to call slawson park that's where the name comes from a. sausage involved into what many consider to be a lady's first modern african-american game. but we never called ourselves that that was something that the city and the police like to scrap we were clubs.
which drew me to slauson was that they mirrored who i was and it made one feel like one had some status and you had an identity and identity that you didn't have anywhere else. the sense of family there's a sense of acceptance you also have a way to wilson power because now you've got numbers. to lose. in those days we give you a point when a. code you had to be there because everybody else in town knew but you. keep basic or how good are those things i say these days my dear i say i would be cheering here in atlanta we're back to the studio here to go sideburns off and browse off before we. just what we call wolf and oh you know what the i was go ahead that's what he said and he's done this you know if you look at the somebody tell me i'm getting. but it wasn't really about destroying and somebody else just
a competitive they you know just competing with each other. this time of produce all the time. my mother. always said you know what did you do just as i didn't do anything you know see people including parents could not believe that the man just a lot of. young black men in this society have always been represented as the most threatening figures possible. their viewed as being people. will commit crimes. from one hundred fifty to one nine hundred sixty six
the los angeles police department was commanded by chief william. g. parker ran a police department like a military unit and the people who boarded brought us were black residents. are. not that good. and so the cops were treating these young black men as though they were enemies as they were in warfare. it was an open secret that one of the tacit duties of the l.a.p.d. was to make sure people were in the right neighborhoods at the right time and alameda boulevard was the white curtain in l.a. you didn't cross alameda for no reason at all east of these away areas. linwood
southgate we couldn't go there you had cops that didn't want you there and blacks that danes to cross the line were quickly put in place by police officers. one time i was walking down the street on seventy seventh and central and the man said hey you. heard what i care what you say you and they ran on the curb jumped out of currency didn't you hear it's called you sir heard say you but my name is not you so no get up against the wall and such a song and it look like i've been robbed. that's why out of the rubble and she looks just like you. so the idea was to create not only a segregated society but the idea that those of darker hue were in theory and should be treated as such. and after a while you begin to internalize this and you develop
a deep seated self-hatred. because you see yourself as having almost no value. in a free society i'm walking down the street but he's got the nerve to ask me where you go where you come you know he'll damn good as well going. i mean a damn thing is where it came from. where you go. people ask you what are you doing here you go anywhere and ask anybody else what they do and. you stop an ass going to but also in a society why do you exist. got to stay out of sand and you got the nerve to ask me that all day every day now what do you think that does to me psychologically what does it tell me what message there might be and fear every day so you know understand it every day speed me a spoon for the hatred. every day that's my doc. you
see. it's just a question of when is this going to erupt and appalled whom is it going to erupt i will attack myself am i going to tag my brother you understand my blood type my own image you know. going to eventually attack the cause of my anger and my frustration. at seven pm on the sea level one thousand and sixty five in the corners of a hundred sixteenth and avalon twenty one year old watts resident marquette frye was pulled over by the california highway patrol on suspicion of drunk driving a routine traffic stop until police insisted on impounding frys car despite being less than two blocks from school fry's mother won't call join the rapidly growing
crowd belong with marquette grew increasingly belligerent of what they felt was the heavy handed police response l.a.p.d. reinforcements are called in a scuffle broke out and friday his mother rina brother was taken into custody. the squad cars rolled away but the crowd continue to swell as word of the incident swept through the neighborhood when i woke up one hundred fifty two now when i told my quarter from the dartanion to me what happened is they jumped on market. we just got more and more said it was a cumulative thing it was one racist traffic stop two minutes. us. the first.
market why not. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike stronger for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines two kinds a report. there are twelve cities in the united states in which half of the people with hiv aids lives within a year. this is a problem that. substantially preventable it was like the big elephant in the room and nobody wanted to talk about they were really good public health campaigns that people were really focused on this problem you certainly should be able to have a lot less a lot less human suffering. lake
at two pm a meeting was called a neighborhood rec center simply representatives from various community groups elected officials the l.a.p.d. the media. even marina from i think that we must stay off the streets i think the civil rights drive in america have demonstrated that well be that. the cutting through a call for order to move voice and only the night before was raised by thousands in the street and i would take. whether you like. this week the negro people down here. you should suck it up we know it's real and you can show it you greater than living it show that it doesn't work it doesn't destroy. it in the press as we were taking . their parents are coming from places where black men are expected to step
up the street and say yes to a twelve year old white boy. where black men are lynched with regularity. and so from their perspective los angeles looks wonderful they're certainly aware of the flaws but they recognize it's such an improvement their children however evan very different perspective. we come along and we teach you to. keep. crowds of topic americans again filled the streets. but this time over two hundred people and deputy sheriff talks. so here we are in a crowd at night when. things in such disarray and we're facing cops in the street . and they want to move the crowd back. so when
we move forward. and so you're looking at one of the. and your reading of people in the body language that says it's going to build. and they fired from around. the zone now. please a friday morning additional police were called in from all points of l.a. to squash what authorities were now termed a full scale life led to the call of the right to look. we were doing. a lot better but the reason that you can't say it is because of the so-called equal
intelligence to these tragedies i know. her little clip in what happens is that it becomes a big newspaper story which increases political pressure on the authorities to do something. illegal and then it probably is sixteen thousand national guard. little national guard particulars on a really funny to engage in civilian crowd completely at least. at that point they point to the other words which was the iron fist the are. a this these leads to
a virtual free fire zone where people could be shocked. making. the wrong time at the wrong intersection. the claim by police is that these the looters that were refusing orders to go to. the autopsies clearly show that people were shot in the back. and one has to really question whether or not a human one is worth all of your increase of fear. that is to say people were being killed for what can retrospect one of the most trivial of offense it's. really been undermined anything because we're talking about desperate people we're talking about people who have nothing to see no hope.
this is a criminal along los alamos with which we're confronted and that the only thing they understand is farce. that's been the learn taboo. is that black people and other the press people in this country are never to use violence to achieve what it is they want. but this country uses violence whenever it chooses and then it legitimizes the violence. you say need a mass is my life is of no value how can your property how can your society how can a civilization how can any of them or rules or any of the monuments how can any of
it be of any value to me. but all it has on the door for me is a rejection of us i'm i'm not. i'm not allowed to touch not allowed to partake. all my life i was rejected before i was born and the most reject nothing is open to me. and every time i'm not on a door and get rejected takes a little something out of. the package of i'm a ship down from a barbecue trip down in the bay is a testament to the revolutionary spirit. and so there was this sense that we have taken a stand and to be it sent the message out to the world. it. is. such.
a thing of the rebellion represented for us with the real fix celebrate christmas from sixty five until about seventy one again activity you know that of all time low because so many young people would join organizations like the student or they . already. destroyed black pride move saw the development of dynamic african-american organizations committed to instigating change from within. five years like byrd and ron now thought the power rather than other gangs were going along side groups like the black panthers and civic programs that range from free breakfast to neighborhood restoration to political activists
a little easier. this new black power structure quickly found itself in the crosshairs of government agencies like the f.b.i. . according to recently declassified documents f.b.i. director j. edgar hoover botched a covert counterintelligence operation against the black panthers. organization he described as the greatest threat to the internal security of the country. they turn around and squash goes. from a slawson intent to chapter founder alpinist bunchy card and john hugs were gunned down at a u.c.l.a. black student meeting while black panther found issue a new and bobby seale faced arrest and lengthy jail sentence.
in a few short years many of america's most influential. black leaders and either been incarcerated. or sas. they ran him down and chased him down a kind of down a murdered everybody they could and made their body else either go to exile or to lock them up in a penitentiary and when all that was over with a new element rose the call of crips. you see. in the late one nine hundred sixty s. and the black top playgrounds of fremont high school emerged this new order led by south l.a. teenager raymond washington generally quoted as the crips founding member. in response number of rival gangs formed an alliance calling themselves bloods moniker adopted by african-american soldiers serving in vietnam. the opposing
armies now in place battle flags were raised blue for crips and red for bullets. exactly which set our neighborhood true first place and why you never be known. for the next four decades boring crips and bloods sets the car the streets of south l.a. into a grid of rival territories. and . today these fractured communities are home to five generations of urban soldiers. really from well from. the u.s. this out is where we come from as a stall model kill or be killed. what's
