SCIENCE, NATURE, HISTORY & CULTURE

Some people here apparently feel it’s a serious problem only if it’s a white person abused by a nonwhite person.

 Unfortunately America has a history and a cultural tradition of denigrating the humanity and personhood of Americans who are non-white-- the federal government's war against Native Americans, the enslavement of  black Americans, and their subsequent second-class citizenship of Jim Crow policies in the south, peppered with lynchings, are only two examples of this sort of thing.

And I'm just guessing that a number of individuals have never heard of the Zoot Suit Riots.

A little education goes a long way in understanding why some Americans are so rooted in bigotry.

this is very unfortunate ... but please take note: it took place in Minneapolis Minnesota ... not  Jackson Mississippi ...

It's a historical fact most businesses which are ransacked generally don't reopen but relocate elsewhere or not at all.  That only increases the unemployment , economic downturn within the riot area.

I believe that it is true also that remaining businesses in the area must raise prices to reflect increased cost of insurance and higher risk. This contributes to: "the high price of being poor" which prevents conditions from improving.
