How do the historians, Capeci and Wilkerson, explain the cause of the Detroit riots? Was the riot for personal gain, an irrational act, or a form of protest? As you reviewed the primary sources, what motivated the rioters to act? Does mob mentality play a role in events such as this one? Do we see these actions (riots) in our history of the US (Revolution, colonial, Civil War, WWI)? Search for some events in US History. Do you think the historians’ explanations, for the cause of the riots, viable? Why or why not? Explain with details.
