There are 4 Hispanic hoods on the map that were founded by non-Hispanics... which ones?
Three founded by Blacks, and the other by Whites.
Tmc (east la)
Those are my guesses.
Good guesses. You got one right.
The Mob Crew in East L.A. was started by a Black dude from 1st Street East Coast Crips in Aliso Village in the early 1980's.
The other ones:
Nut Hood Watts 13 -- broke off from Nut Hood Watts Crips. Similar to how Grape Street Crip broke off from Watts Varrio Grape.
Santa Monica 13 -- originally began as the 'Santa Monica Tomato Patch Gang' (1920's or so), which was primarily Black, but had some Whites and later some Hispanics. The Hispanic population in the area began to grow by the 40's and 50's, and by the 1950's is when it began to get its own identity and become a Hispanic varrio.
Dog Town -- originally started by Whites, particularly Irish & Italians in the late 1890's.
Damn i was gonna pick nut hood but i forgot . Do they share hood with nut hood watts crip? I used to hang with the homie from Weigand Colonia in his hood and never heard of the nut hood 13. He told me they beef with nut hood crips though and a Og from nut hood pulled up on us in front of his house and said the homie Donut just got out and drove away. My homie from Colonia said he was trying to recruit me on some weird shit i guess because i was young and black. Also when we went to his other homie from Colonia house around the corner, a young nut hood crip passed by on a bike but they didn't do nothing. It was about 5 of them but i guess they didn't wanna bring heat to that house. Those watts gangs are too close. We had to walk through varrio Grape hood to get to his and the gang territory changed as we were walking through a long ass alley. This was around 04. Im pretty sure Colonia and Nut hood crips have territory issues.
Yeah, Nut Hood 13 is in the same hood as Nut Hood Crips. At first I questioned if Nut Hood 13 even existed, but I saw this news story about two guys from Nut Hood arrested, and both are clearly Hispanic/mestizo:

In the picture you can clearly see a Latino with "NUT HOOD" tatted on his face... and I think I remember seeing Nut Hood Watts 13 graffiti posted on the Internet before a few months ago.
My guess is they're a small or not very active hood, since it's hard to find info on them.
Yeah Watts gangs are close together. Same with Compton. Another place where a lot of gangs are cramped together are the Low Bottoms (as you can see on the map). And the Macarthur Park-Pico Union area.
What hood did you grow up in? (I grew up in 18th Street Rimpau & School Yard Crips in Mid City) I was thinking you were Hispanic...
I pretty much grew up in 20 bloods/ Drifters 23st hood but i lived in group homes all over the place. I stayed on Redondo just north of Washington before which was school yard/ 18st hood. I remember 18st being all over that area on both sides of the freeway. Isn't that area around Adams and La brea called rancho park? If so do you know if 18st rancho park get their name from that neighborhood or the park by Dorsey high? I still see Rancho park hit up over there around La brea.
Rancho Park is definitely the name of the park there... I never heard of the neighborhood being called "Rancho Park."
Not sure where exactly 18th Street Rancho Park claims. Not sure if they're connected to the same hood as the 18 Smiley/Alsace cliques or what... Heard different stories about 18 RPK -- the first one was that they tried to establish themselves and got booted out by BPS and are nomads now... The other story is that they're still around just not that deep. I saw 18 RPK hitups in the Rollin 40s territory which is kind of far from Ranch Park.
A part of me is thinking that 18th Street in that West Adams/Jefferson Park area might be more spread out and might connect to damn near 7th Ave or Arlington or even Western. I'm not sure which Hispanic hoods are in West Boulevard Crip territory...
That 18st set by between 7th ave and Edgehill is correct. They might hit up outside those borders but that's all they have on lock. I stayed in a group home on the corner of 12th av and Jefferson now it's a church i think. Some 18s lived on Edgehill south of Jefferson and they didn't pass that street. Some Bps were just north of 12th av and on both sides of Norton and Jefferson. 30s was all around and now Bps are gone and only 30s on those streets. Now on 29th and 30th on the west side of Crenshaw, i been seeing 18st hitup for years. They are spread around west blvd crip hood and i know because a family of 18st lived across the street from my uncle on Harcourt south of Adams and my cousin said 18s be around the neighborhood. I think those 2 close 18st hoods connect because 18st was around Washington and Redondo.
