    Default two questions

    Hi Teacher,

    I am not quite sure about the meanings of the following two sentences. Please give me a hand.

    1. Further outcomes include the race riots which dominate the news with a
    historical consistency that has involved virtually every non-White racial
    group.

    2. Cottle identifies the competing repertoires of preferred terms used by
    journalists and their sources to define the contested realities of inner city
    disorder.

    Thanks a bunch.

    Default Re: two questions

    The first says that there have been race riots involving every non-white group and there may/will be more.
    Journalists use one term, presumably a more polite, more PC one, and the sources tend to use other tewrms, probably more colloquial.
