    U.S.RIOT COMMISSION ON CIVIL DISORDERS
    The 1967 Report can be read as the 2014 report history recycles it self.

    Tom Wicker of the New York Times wrote this introduction remark:

    “The single overriding cause of rioting in the cities was not any one thing commonly adduced-unemployment, lack of education, poverty, exploitation-but that it was all of those things and more, expressed in the insidious and pervasive white sense of the inferiority of black men. Here is the essence of the charge: What white Americans have never fully understood-but what the Negro can never forget-is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it”.

    One of the points I agree with this report was a call for Year –round Education for disadvantage students:

    “The present, anachronistic practice of releasing hundreds of thousands of children from a relatively full school schedule to idleness in the summer months is both a substantial factor in producing disorders and a tragic waste of time and facilities” p. 445
