On March 16th 1991, Latasha Harlins was killed at a Korean store for mistakenly stealing a bottle of juice at the age of 15. It was one of the sparks that caused the historic 1992 Los Angeles riots that left the city ravaged.
Netflix takes a look at the little girl who had dreams of being a lawyer and having her community be business owners to prevent the racism encountered in Asian stores across the neighborhoods.
Hip hop legend Tupac Shakur would always reference Latasha in his music and believed that she was never given her due justice along with millions of other people.
Little girl like LaTasha, had to die
She never got to see the bullet, just heard the shot
Her little body couldn’t take it, it shook and dropped
And when I saw it on the news I see busta’ girl killin’ ‘Tasha
Now I’m screamin’ f*** the world
Tupac Shakur – HellRazor
