Purple Hearts, black gang in East LA

Many neighborhoods can not maintain themselves with the level of competition. They may get pulled into other neighborhoods or they just fade out. Only discuss those areas from LOS ANGELES that are gone.

My Homeboys pops was from Purple Hearts out of the Aliso Village. He was a ex-military officer. But i want to say he was a Purple Heart in the Late-40's, maybe the 50's. But i can be wrong. Would have to hit my guy up to ask. They moved out Aliso Village and land in the Crenshaw District in 1971. So you might be right, 1960's.

Called him Hondu. He died back in 2013 0r 14.

He used to fight against the Apaches.

Some Famous Local Boxer from Apaches was his main rivial. They are Newspaper articles on the Boxer. He got killed in Downtown L.A. i forgot his name. Maybe if you search for ELA or Aliso Village Boxer.
