Racial prejudice, particularly against blacks, remains the greatest cause of housing segregation in Los Angeles County--more powerful than costs or the desire to live among similar people, a newly published academic study declares. Yet Angelenos appear to be more open to living in ethnically diverse neighborhoods than they were a generation ago, the report in the Social Science Research quarterly concluded. That seemed to be particularly true of varying mixtures of whites, Asians and Latinos.

Asian-American groups in Los Angeles have formed the first broad-based coalition among their usually divided communities, establishing an organization called Asian Pacific Americans for a New L.A. Setting the agenda for the diverse coalition is expected to be a contentious process.

On the afternoon of April 29, 1992, after hearing that the officers who beat Rodney King had been acquitted, I headed with a friend down to First A.M.E. Church in South-Central Los Angeles to attend a rally. We never made it. As we closed in on Western Avenue and West Adams Boulevard, our car was stopped by scores of people, mostly black men, milling about in the streets; the air was thick with a gathering anger. Minutes later that anger morphed into action - thrown bottles, a hurled trash can. It was clear that things were getting out of hand, and so we turned around.

Iluminado," an exhibition of photographs by eight Chicano artists.
