• Yes, riots are the language of the unheard.

    Riots occur when people feel like they do not have a voice. They are the way that the unheard is trying to express themselves and to make themselves known. The only way the unheard feel that they are able to become heard is to go out in public and disrupt normal activities with signs and yelling. Therefore, riots are the language that the unheard uses to make themselves seen and heard.

  • Yes i agree.

    Riots are the language of the unheard. This is because the rioters try to raise their grievances. The rioters are sometimes not listened to since their actions are wanting. On the other hand, i believe they should be listened to since they have a say. They should be given a chance to air their views.

  • Yes, riots are the language of the unheard for those that feel justified in doing so.

    Everyone is entitled to their voice being heard. When people feel unheard they believe in taking additional action by rioting. I believe that it does not solve the issue in any way whatsoever, however, while in the moment and in their pain, people feel justified in rioting because they have not been heard. When people feel they have been heard, it validates them. It tells them that their voice counts. Riots are the result of people feeling they have been dismissed and unfortunately believe they have no other choice but to take action by force.

  • They are the language of the loud.

    No, riots are not the language of the unheard, because they are the language of people who want their way. People rioting are willing to disrupt other, innocent people, in an attempt to get what they want. They do not care what other people think, or if the people they disrupt are responsible for what they are suffering or not. The unheard people are the people huddled at home, afraid to speak.

I'm in between on this one. I would say that at times this is true, for those who feel that nonviolence will be ignored or even met with force. At other times however I feel that riots are caused by people giving in to their baser instincts, or taking advantage of the anonymity of a crowd in order to steal and destroy even if they have no care about the crowds cause.
