Abstract:I examine race relations between African Americans and Latin@s in the context of Southern California. Both groups have been historically discriminated, and are now participating in activities that some may call “racist” towards one another. This thesis departs from the Southern California “race riots” in school settings during the early1990’s. As a result, the students were punished by the Los Angeles Police Department as an instrument of order. Although “order” was brought back to the local high schools, minimal action was taken about the so-called "race riots" root causes. There was no talk about the circumstances in place where black and brown youth live, make up the high populations of residents, nor the lack of resources that are non-existent in the community. There was a lack of sound initiatives aimed at assisting this crisis in Southern California.
