Vocabulary of disturbances [06 Apr 2006|03:21pm]

Interesting. Black people riot, white people protest. Some valid counterpoints in the comments, but I think it's still something to think about.

I also think that black people "riot" because there is alliteration with "race", and when was the last time you heard a violent disturbance by a group of white people described as a "race riot"?
