"I was out in Watts during the riots. One young man said to me-and Andy Young, Bayard Rustin, and Bernard Lee, who were with me-'We won!' I said, 'What do you mean; we won? Thirty-some people dead-all but two are Negroes. You've destroyed your own. What do you mean; we won?' And he said, 'We made them pay attention to us.' When people are voiceless, they will have temper tantrums like a little child who has not been paid attention to. And riots are massive temper tantrums from a neglected and voiceless people."
-Martin Luther King Jr.
