In "Population & Steets in Deborth City," the director shows the violence that took place in Watts in 1968. Debord fails to understand the nature of social death, and the insurgents who occupied Watts were portrayed as attempting to build a new proletarian consciousness by deconstructing the world of commodities. This portrayal of social death undermines Debord's attempt to explain the insurgents' aims to make the world "better." Situationist scholar Jason E. Smith points out that Debord was "misconfigured in his belief in the appropriation of capitalist culture."

In the book, Debord discusses how the right to the city must start with making the city useful for people who are oppressed and deprived. Debord claims that the right to the city begins from the position of the oppressed and deprived, and then works its way up against a system defined by falling rate of use value that deprives through abundance, and creates a world ripe for appropriation.

Despite the racial motivations behind the riots in Watts, the film does not portray these as a racial conflict. Instead, the rioters left whites in their way and attacked white policemen. Although Martin Luther King acknowledged the riots were beyond his expertise, he said "this was beyond his specialty."
