Burn Baby Burn: Riots and Violence in the Modern World (1993)

2 months ago

Finally the undiluted truth about the nations bloodiest uprisings…uncensored raw footage of civil unrest presented here without the apologist spin of network reporting. Burn, Baby, Burn provides in-depth analysis of the civil rights movement the radical doctrine of Malcolm X., the Black Panthers and the triumphs and rarely discussed failures of Dr. Martin Luther King. There’s also a detailed and riveting overview of the 1992 Los Angeles riots, as well as a graphic look at episodes of worldwide unrest and rebellion.


The 1992 Los Angeles riots were a series of riots and civil disturbances that occurred in Los Angeles County in April and May 1992. Unrest began in South Central Los Angeles on April 29, after a trial jury acquitted four officers of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) for usage of excessive force in the arrest and beating of Rodney King, which had been videotaped and widely viewed in TV broadcasts. – Wikipedia

  1. All that about Rodney King was staged up until the police tried to beat him to death. He never recovered, neither d's the stores on Normandy, 28 years later. Yet your more concerned about a dog or cat. Get that concern for him an beings an jobs, schools, food. Medicines!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Check this out. In 1962 when the rights movement was at full swing the riot broke out 30 years later 1992 the LA riot Sparks over the cops found not guilty free for beating the sht of a black person. And the only reason we saw the clip was because a man was seeing from his window did what needed to be recorded. In 2 years it would be 30 years since the 1992 riot think about the famous people alive then and where are they now think about the people who we're alive then where are they now yeah 30 years isn't much add it up and it's only been 60 years since the black people were looked as second human and you ask why cops kill minorities

  3. I wish if MLK and JFK didn't go away how much better Greater overwhelming not only America would be but the World as we know it .Just me from South side of Chicago.

  4. The Struggle Go's On..Here we are today not really any better off, if anything it's Worse.I WISH PEOPLE WOULD WAKE UP AND SEE WHO THEIR REAL ENEMY IS.. GOVERNMENT !!!

  5. Feels like there is a prejudiced bias from the narrator. At first it was interesting to hear about the violent protestors after MLK but his portrayal of the people rioting in LA and the events feels like it's in favor of the guilty murderous police officers. It may have been welfare checks on May 1st but it's also heavily documented that the National Guard came in on May 1st 1992 and people started to beg off. I've seen the footage. Also Rodney no matter how guilty he was, did not ever EVER deserve that kind of beating he was given. They should have stopped long before it was caught on camera.

  6. This documentary is told from the mind of a white supremacist. It does not tell why black people resorted to violence. It also shows how white supremacy controls black people via welfare and other government programs.

  7. I love this channel. It comes with facts that his been TELEVISED for decades. We have been their test subjects for such a long time. I dont how some of our ignorant folk pertaining to those who think times had changed. Peeped the narrator, :militant ex con" :uneducated Blacks" words used to desrcibe a people who generations are still fighting thru challenges.
