This effect is strongest in cities with high levels of cleavages between whites and African Americans. In an analysis of Houston and San Antonio elections using ecological inference to estimate racial and ethnic turnout rates, I find that it is non-white residents who are disproportionately voting in these elections. Next, I use propensity score matching to analyze survey data on protest participation by residents of fourteen big U.S. cities. I find significant variation in protest rates across cities, even after controlling for socioeconomic factors and political beliefs. Central to explaining the variation across cities is the density of informal networks, a critical mass of potential protestors, and history of oppositional culture. Finally, I compare two protest episodes following incidents of police brutality, one in Chicago and one in New York
