Somethings never change
24 April 2017 | by rcmoore76137See all my reviews

A look back to 1965 and how it parallel to 1992 riots. Then seeing how events now were shaped by the past. "Those who don't learn from the past are doomed to repeat it." Race relations haven't changed much over the years. That is the main message told at the end.

It's a sad evidence to see the police chief and the mayor be at odds with one another. The riots was a keg that needed to go off.
