"KILL 'EM! KILL 'EM!" they screamed, and kill they did until 37 lay dead and property damage ran into the millions of dollars in Los Angeles last August 12 through 17. BUT WHY? Officials accuse each other. Negroes accuse police. It is time you know the REAL CAUSE of race riots and what prophecy says about the great riots of the future. I couldn't believe it, at first. It sounded incredible, in the New Stanley Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya, on Jomo Kenyatta Boulevard, to be reading of race riots - IN LOS ANGELES! Suddenly the blood and violence was not only in Vietnam, or some remote corner of the earth - but in Los Angeles, a city priding itself on its relations between various racial groups. Back in Los Angeles two days later, an uneasy quiet layover the city. Traffic was measurably less, down town shoppers thinned down to a trickle. The first night in my own bed, in Pasadena, two gunshots exploded from a racing car in the street right outside. I began to think I would have been much safer back in Kenya, scene of the bloody Mau Mau uprisings only a few years ago.
