A white city councilman won the Democratic mayoral primary Tuesday, defeating two black candidates in this predominantly black city by promising to clean the streets of open-air drug markets and to have zero tolerance for crime.

The transformation of Christopher David Fisher began in the chaotic halls of Polytechnic High School in Long Beach, where he decided that someone needed to stick up for white people. It was there that Fisher, the churchgoing son of liberal educators who espoused racial tolerance, came to view himself as a victim of discrimination. He could not understand why the high school had special days for minorities, from Cinco de Mayo to black pride, but nothing comparable for Anglos.

Jean Brouwer lived in Inglewood when Inglewood was white, on a tree-lined street on the north side of town. She was proud of that three-bedroom house. She had thought nothing could make her leave her hometown. "But then they started busing. And as soon as they started busing, the colored people started moving in," Brouwer said. "I'm not saying they were bad people, but I was probably more prejudiced then than I am now, and at the time I didn't think (busing) was right."

It's your first day at the new job, and you've noticed something different. It's you. Your co-workers and your boss are not of your gender or background. You're a white male. Kevin O'Gorman, one of the few white employees--and the only white reporter--at the Voice & Viewpoint, a San Diego newspaper that covers the African American community, has some advice for someone caught in the process of reverse integration: Just relax--it worked for me, it can work for you.

July 28, 1991 | Ronald Brownstein, Ronald Brownstein is a Times national political correspondent.
These are the years of Willie Horton and Tawana Brawley, of Louis Farrakhan and David Duke, of Rodney King and the Central Park jogger, of quotas and code words, of politics sharpened to a lethal edge on the adamantine differences between black and white. Not since the 1960s have racial questions been so vivid and dense with emotion. Books about the urban underclass are nestled between the self-help manuals on the national best-seller lists.

More than 5,000 white applicants for firefighters jobs will not be permitted to take today's exam to join the Los Angeles Fire Department because of a federal consent decree aimed at increasing minority representation on the force, city officials said. About 8,000 people are expected to flock to Fairfax High School to take the Civil Service test, the first one offered in four years. Those who have been blocked, predominantly white men, are criticizing the process as being unfair.
