The Airborne arrives in Detroit, 1967.
Interesting analysis, as far as it goes. My own analysis would point out that predatory, collectivist governments almost always benefit from such chaos, which in any case is a function of class and culture, not race. I once met a National Guard veteran of the Detroit riot in 1967 at a show of the Ohio Gun Collectors Association, probably about 1977 or so. The conversation somehow got around to the riot and the efficacy of M-1 Garand fire on arsonists. The veteran had shot a rioter about to set fire to a building and was completely unapologetic. "What was I supposed to do? Kiss him?" he asked rhetorically. The Guardsman was black. The riots were used later that year as an excuse for the passage of the Gun Control Act of 1968. It ain't about race, it's about power, folks -- mostly government power. Keep that in mind.
