Why did blacks and Hispanics loot in the 1992 La riots?

Every video i've seen about the riots.. It's mostly been the majority black.. then Hispanic.

Why did they feel the need to steal and cause over 1 billion in property damage?

    Unfortunately, looting is common in almost every riot. This is nothing new. Blacks, Whites, Hispanics and all other races had experience in looting while a riot goes on. Looting can not exist without rioting. The people that looted in the 1992 riot were opportunistic. If this was a White riot, the same would have happen. This is not a Black and White issue.
