Even though Bradley says "April 26th, 1992" it's actually April 29th, 1992... And I'm a nerd and literally have an alarm set on my phone to remind me of this day annually... Because, well why not? It's a kick ass song. 🎼🎶 • • • • • #sublime #april291992 #riots #wannaletitburn #riotsonthestreets #Savage #RodneyKing #BradleyNowell #40ozToFreedomWasGoodToo #DateRape #music #90skid #rockerchick #MyBestFriendSingsEveryWord #SheIsBetterThanYou #nerdalert #rock #punk #ska

Los Angeles Riots | Photo by #KirkMcCoy On April 29, 1992, four #LAPD officers were acquitted for the beating of #RodneyKing, sparking a national debate about polic brutality and injustice. After the verdict, angry crowds gathered on corners around Los Angeles. This, to me, is the best photo from the tons of great street photography from this fateful time in our history. I have since walked and photographed on these same blocks and talked to folks who were front and center during the riots. They are still receiving the same treatment. 24 years later.. #ArtAboveReality #LosAngeles #LookWhatArtFound #ArtInspires #Inspiring #Global #Artistic #Expression #Creative #Art #LIFE #artwork #PhotoJournalism #PostOfTheDay #StreetPhotography #Journalism #ArtJournalism #ArtPhotography #photoaday #instagrammer #photo #artist #arte #instaart #instaphoto

The 1992 Los Angeles Uprising began 24 years ago today: April 29, 1992. Above, an LA Times photo of a destroyed shopping mall at Pico and La Brea. The graffiti reads: "Look what you created". It's anybody's guess who they're blaming. #LosAngeles #1992 #Uprising #Riot #Rebellion #CivilUnrest #RodneyKing

What is your favorite Hip Hop track based on the riots? Why did we not get the same response from Hip Hop after Trayvon Martin or Michael Brown? Will we ever get "conscious rap" back? Speak on it!!!

24 years ago, LA burned: ~3600 buildings set on fire, ~1100 of them burned to the ground (a large chunk being Korean immigrant businesses), a billion dollars in damages (close to $1.7 billion in today's money) - still one of the most harrowing days of my life yet I'm amazed at how much our city has grown since then #lariots #rodneyking #latashaharlins #florencenormandie #koreatown #raceriot #anarchy #neveragain

"The officers -- Laurence Powell, Timothy Wind, Theodore Briseno and Stacey Koon -- were charged with criminal offenses, including assault with a deadly weapon. Their trial was originally set to be held in Los Angeles, but defense attorneys successfully argued that a fair trial in Los Angeles would be impossible because of the publicity. The trial was moved to Simi Valley, a predominantly white suburb of L.A. The jury was comprised of ten white people, one Hispanic person and one Asian person, and many objected to the fact that there were no African-American jurors." #RodneyKing #LARiots #Aquittal #policebrutality #martiallaw #policestate #Racism #policeterrorism #stopandsearch #whitesupremacy #whiteprivilege #blukluxklan

#Repost @unspokenlegacy ・・・ The grainy black and white footage of King's beating offered proof of what the black community had been complaining about for decades - police brutality. Twenty-four years ago anger led to days of looting and burning, 54 deaths and 1 billion dollars worth of damage to the city. A state of emergency was declared in South Central Los Angeles. In the wake of the riots the LAPD was forced to change. Some LAPD officers reporting on disturbances in the black communities of South Los Angeles in 1992 used code to describe disturbances in their areas: NHI - "No Humans Involved". Members of the predominantly white, male police force said it was "gallows humour" and regularly described the African-Americans they were meant to protect and serve as "monkeys" and "gorillas". An independent commission to investigate the King beating detailed a culture of racism and abuse within the LAPD, where excessive force was not only tolerated but often covered up by fellow officers in a code of silence. "With the Rodney King beating and the riots, that was the beginning of the end of the old imperial LAPD. Because LAPD had a very arrogant, 'we're above the law' attitude," says Connie Rice, a civil rights lawyer. "It was the first time the black community's complaints couldn't be denied and swept under the rug." The commission, led by future US Secretary of State Warren Christopher, depicted an out of control LAPD with rogue officers beating suspects and bragging about it over patrol cars' communication systems. The report published the messages to illustrate the King beating was not an isolated incident. It noted that LAPD management monitored the messages but did nothing about the abuse. 24 Years down the line it doesn't seem like anything has changed, police brutality is still a big issue today in the Black Community. #Unspokenlegacy #Rodneyking #LA #policebrutality #blackpeople #awareness #corruption #corrupt #LAPD #losangeles #Blackamerica #realitycheck #truth #thetruthhurts #injustice

"April 29th was #powertothepeople and we might just see a sequel..." - @icecube "They had to get #Rodney to stop me cuz ya what, we would have tore this muafuka up!" - @icecube Whether you decide to #acknowledge it or not, this is #history. This is #AmericanHistory. This is #BlackHistory. History tends to repeat itself. Can you not see it all around? Couldn't #comprehend the #severity of the situation at 5 years old.

The eyes of the world were on my city as today marks the 24th anneversary of the L.A. riots I have was living in echo park at the time and remember seeing the sky filled with smoke and ashes falling down. I remember going through Korea town and seeing shop owners on their rooftops armed with riffles and M-16s I remember the sears in Hollywood getting looted. Browns and blacks marching down the streets together. I saw all this first hand way before social media before Facebook IG and twitter just riding around on my bike. I remember seeing the National Guard posted up in downtown in humvees it looked like a war zone. It was a dark day for my beautiful city and with all the recent police shootings not just in L.A. but in all America has anything even changed? Or gotten worse? I pray my kids don't see the things I have... #lariots #losangeles #april29 #notguilty #rodneyking

29 April 1992. Rodney King trial verdict announced. A jury of 10 whites, one Hispanic, and oneFilipinain the Los Angeles suburb of Simi Valley acquits four police officers who had been charged with using excessive force in arresting black motorist Rodney King a year earlier. The announcement of the verdict, which enraged the black community, prompted widespread rioting throughout much of the sprawling city. It wasn’t until three days later that the arson and looting finally ended. #rodneyking #policebrutality #police #trial #jury #california #la #losangeles #america #amerikkka #riots #white #black #africanamerican #geschiedenis #history

🔊 LISTEN UP!!! Being born & raised in the City of Angels also means that one should acknowledge the rich and heavy history of this beautiful city. On this day, twenty-four years ago, four white police officers were acquitted for the beating of Mr. Rodney King. The wrongful decision sparked the light which ignited the infamous Los Angeles Riots. At this time, my fifteen year old mom was seven months pregnant with my sister and all I can think about is how scared or how unsure my mom must have been. How my family, who were all very near the area of the events, coped and managed. I will never be able to truly understand the emotions of this day- the livelihoods destroyed, the families torn, and the lives lost. The Riots lasted for a total of five days. Over these dangerous days, more than 50 were dead, over 2,000 injured, and an estimated cost of $1 billion in damages of over a thousand buildings and structures. I wanted to share this because with what's happening in the world, it seems all to similar. Fret not, because whether you're a Native Angeleno, or someone who loves my home just as much as I do, all you have to do is share this history. pc: @abcnews #LARiots #RodneyKing #April291992 @losangeles_city @latimes
