Race riots are the most glaring and contemporary displays of
the racial strife running through America's history. Mostly urban, mostly outside the South, and mostly white-instigated, the number and violence of
race riots increased as blacks migrated out of
the rural South and into the North and West's industrialized cities during the early part of
the twentieth-century. Though white / black violence has been the most common form of
racial violence, riots involving Asians and Hispanics are also included and examined.
