A race riot

Race Riots are mass uprisings motivated by race. Uprisings labelled race riots may or may not actually be motivated by race, but media tends to portray rioting which seems to be confined to one racial, ethnic, or cultural group as race riots.

In the US (some of the big ones) Edit

  • New York Draft Riot of 1863 -
  • Red Summer (1919) -[1]
  • Tulsa Riot of 1921 - [2][3]
