Diversity Is Strength...It's Also "Rainbow Riots"

In 2001, Jared Taylor wrote about the Cincinatti Riots, in a passage that I considered a little harsh at the time:
"It is a mistake to assume blacks riot because they have some legitimate grievance. Blacks are likely to riot whenever there is a large number of them together in one place. A rap concert or a basketball game is as good an excuse for a riot as “racial profiling and police brutality.” Just last month we reported that black high-school students at a rally for racial preferences in Berkeley, California, sacked a shoe store and sent a white man to the hospital. The Mardi Gras violence in New Orleans, Philadelphia, and Seattle was yet another example of blacks going on anti-white rampages the moment circumstances made it seem safe to do so. [Cincinnati Burning, American Renaissance, June 2001]"
Of course, I can't think of any other explanation for people who riot when their team wins. But Los Angeles riots are different—the 1992 Rodney King riots were known as "rainbow riots" because of the participation of not only blacks, but recent Hispanic immigrants.

The recent Lakers riot, according to LAPD Officer "Jack Dunphy," is an example of this:

Though most of the crowd inside the Staples Center remained in their seats for some time after the game so as to witness the presentation of the championship trophy, the clientele of the nearby restaurants and taverns, having fortified themselves for their post-game exertions, soon spilled out onto the streets. For many of these people, the Laker victory was merely the second reason for celebration that day: they had already been inspired to new heights of exuberance by Mexico’s win over France in the day’s World Cup soccer action. Indeed, Mexican flags were much in evidence among the revelers.[What I Saw at the Lakers Riots, by Jack Dunphy, PajamasMedia, June 20, 2010]
And here's a note from the end of Time To Rethink Immigration, by Peter Brimelow, 1992,

At a Cabinet meeting today, Attorney General William P. Barr said nearly one-third of the first 6,000 [Los Angeles] riot suspects arrested and processed through the court system were illegal aliens, according to a senior Administration official. Barr has not proposed any special effort to have them deported, a Justice Department spokesman said."
