African-american Street Gangs In Los Angeles - 1,501 words
by Alejandro A. Alonso, M.S. In Los Angeles and other urban areas in the United States, the formation of street gangs increased at a steady pace through 1996. The Bloods and the Crips, the most well-known gangs of Los Angeles, are predominately African American and they have steadily increased in number since their beginnings in 1969.

... egotiate strategies to combat white intimidation and violence, the effectiveness of whites to fight against integration and residential segregation began to fail. Eventually 'white flight' occurred, as white residents began to move into the growing suburban areas that flourished in the 1950s, leaving the city areas of South Los Angeles behind. This left the central city of Los Angeles as a primarily black enclave, with blacks accounting for 71 percent of the inner-city population (Brunn et al. 1993: 53). By 1960, the three separate communities of Watts, Central Ave, and West Adams had amalgamated into one continuous black settlement area where low, middle, and upper class black neighborh ...

The most vicious and unrestrained application of COINTELPRO techniques during the late 1960s and early 1970s was clearly reserved for the BPP (Churchill & Wall 1990:61; Horne 1995:13). After several confrontations for over two years, the disputes between the BPP and US continued to the campus of UCLA resulting in the murders of BPP leaders. There are several versions of the events in the described oral histories of those who were present and those who knew the victims personally, but US members were ult ...

The Life and Legend of Howard Hughes Throughout the 20th century, it has been the media's job to pinpoint what events and people would prove to be an effective story.

Lenny Bruce - 1,212 words
Lenny Bruce Leonard Alfred Schneider, or more commonly known as Lenny Bruce, was a comedian, a family man, drug addict, and philosopher. A conventional Jewish child from Long Island, who joked about homosexuality, drugs, religion, and race. Arguably, he paved the way for the comics of today, paying the price for being twenty years ahead of his time. Addicted to vulgarity and drugs he became a regular in courtrooms across America. The humiliation he caused a Philadelphia judge is thought to be another reason he spent so much time in court. His untimely death still stirs speculation of murder, rather than just another junkie that overdosed. Bruce was born on October 13, 1925 in Long Island, Ne ...
