I suppose television would come into play on the point you're making here but it's interesting you would say that Vatos were emulating Blacks "in the late 80's-early 90's" perhaps this was true upon some Cholos from that time frame? I'm not sure. I don't recall Cholos emulating Brothas in general if ever around here but were definitely started to show more mainstream influences by the mid to late 90's.

LOL, thanks Cold Bear! I tried to make this point about 3 pages ago homie! It appears that we have a pattern of getting off topic on these racial rants, and it messes up the conversation and insight. Maybe someone will shed some light as to , Why Surenos love old Black soul music?

When you say old Black soul music do you mean "oldies" - early 60's, Motown - or the stuff on the Old School comp albums - 70's to early 80's funk/soul/rnb?

@ femun- you got a good point there playa! The thing that makes this ironic is, the fact that the Surenos love black soul music, but are at war with blacks. I would think that because of this, they would not want to identify at all with the african american culture. I guess it's true that music transcends all bounderies.

I have to agree with femun, I've met racist Surenos and I've met Surenos that was cool as hell!
LA is not Nazi Germany. A Race War is when the FULL resources of one people is dedicated to the FULL annihilation of the other. The reality is... black gangs war with black gangs and Mexican gangs war with Mexican gangs far more than they war with each other. We live in a multicultural society so you always going to have hate crimes, but these crimes are still too few and far between to call them all-out "Race Wars"

@ Femun & Tre- I understand and hear both of your positions. However, if you listen to not just the media, but many bangers they say differently. I know this has been discussed on other threads, but I think it's important to note. In the documentary Dead Homies (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UagKer5y ... 5CAD74479D) several gang members discuss this issue. In particular, Fat Rat from payback and Cartoon from RSC. Additionally, in the documentary War Stories, monster Kody discusses this issue, and feels that there is a war. Maybe I phrased it incorrectly in my previous post. I am not saying that mexicans are at war with blacks, I'm saying that there is a war with Surenos and Black gangs. Even my family members who bang and have spent many years incarcerated feel that there is a war. It's my belief that the prison system breeds this animosity and it spills into the streets. The big homies get out and school the young homies on this mindset and it permeates into our society. There are Mexican and Black gangs killing each other now, that in past years lived together and in some instances did business together. Yes there are mexican gangs that co-exist but often its based on the old philosophy, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend". However, in most cases once that common enemy is removed, the once friends become enemies. That's just my view.

@Quepolo3 you make a good point about the big homie scenario but the fact is these incidents are still few and far between. Come to LA and see for yourself. All you guys that aren't from LA have these strong opinions just cuz you heard some song lyrics saw some youtube vids etc... The guys from LA tell you otherwise but thats not good enough.

@Femun- I lived in LA for 10 years. Not only that, I just left LA, not even a month ago. I come to LA at least 2-3 times a year. When I moved there in 93' the only people I knew was my Family. Just so happens a few of them are bangers. Additionally, I use to spend alot of time in the jungles, while attending Lodge Meetings. When I first started working, I was at an office in Huntington Park @ Enterprise Rent-Car on Pacific and Slauson. We used to Market every body shop, dealership, auto shop between Adams to Imperial, and From Figuroa to Atlantic. So if you know the area, you know that is a lot of shops and they are all in the hood. Then I got a job as a claims adjuster doing property claims in LA, Orange and Riverside Counties. So believe me bruh, I know quite a bit about LA and the Gang culture. Having said that, I'm not a gang banger so there are many things I can't speak on.

why do surenos love old black music? SAME REASON BLACK BANGERS-dress/drive/and get inked in the manner of the Sureno.

We find whats best about a culture and take what we like EVERYONE DOES IT. ESPECIALLY IN AMERICA.

My favorite food? Italian
Favorite Music? RNB ( African American )
Favorite Vehicles? Hondas and Lexus ( japanese and german)
Favorite form of Art? Chicano and Japanese.


The best of the best. African American music isnt African---its American derived from Africans experiences in America. Simple. Just Like Chicano Art isnt Mexican but American derived from Mexicans experience in America.

Whatever the reason the worlds fashion and art is heavily laced with Japanese and Chicano forms of tattooing....its on shirts/surfboards/peoples skin/shorts/boards/album covers/ and on athletes and actors bodies.

The Art had never been seen outside the Southwestern United States BARRIOS. Its a chicano thing and its OUR BIGGEST IDENTIFIER. Should Lil Wayne/Tyga and others be allowed to wear it without acknowledgement? NIL.I believe as much as this thread takes on chicanos for listening to black music!!

The form of tattooing is EXTREMELY personal to the movement. When rap was being exploited by Vanilla Ice and many other whites in the early 90s, Blacks were in an uproar ....OUTSIDE of MAYUGASTANK.....ME----their arent any chicanos in the world of tattooing-art-fashion lacing blacks/whites up for getting our inkstyles. I merely brought it up when blacks throughout this thread and others derided chicano rappers and denied the origins of the art/the crip-blood look/westcoast styles and much more......all these fashions/styles/artwork and more came from a people ( CHICANOS ) seeking out an identity as the children of immigrants raised in America such as did the Italians in NYC.

You and others who grew around chicanos know the art...and the form of tattooing for what it is and youve seen it your entire lives inked on mexicans.....outside of the Southwest ( TEXAS-ARIZONA-NEW MEXICO-NEVADA-COLORADO ) the world had never known the grey shading-line work-play on fonts and placements of Southern Mexican-Americans.

This art has exploded throughout Europe/Russia/Canada.........and these people have never lived-breathed or met a Mexican American in fact Chicanos are RARE indeed outside of the above (5) states.

Blacks are far more dispersed throughout the USA and have far more influence for this reason. To hear policyking and others deny ............the origins of the clothing/styles/art/look/cars/ as if they originated amongst any people anywhere EXCEPT chicanos is a racist and afront to what my people been thru and what made the look what it is.

Give me soulfood-rnb-speakeasys-jazz-bluegrass-dice games-ebonics-cotton-lemonade-watermelons-BBQs-southern slavery-Southern Slavery derived art............thats the black American experience..............after all 29 MILLION African Americans reside in those states to this day and not a spot throughout them were any of them getting inked up/smashing lowlows/wearing red/bleu to identify their gangs/throwing gang signs/graffing/ ro doing anything ELSE in dispute on thsi thread!!!!!!!!

Fact: there's no big univeral street gang culture out there. There's three main gang cultures in the US today: LA black, Cholo/SW Chicano and Chicago. If we're being totally honest, LA black gangs have had the biggest impact nationwide.

i dont know why yall even arguing about the first gang in america.

they are neither black or Chicano .

the first gang in america IS OBVIOUSLY WHITE. Western Gangs,Nigger killing Gangs,Outlaw Gangs. them folks been around since 1650 or something.

and how does it even matter whose race had the first gang. theres been plenny crew of niggas that took over a hood that was ran by some other niggas for a long time.

and Everybody been on black people shit...its cool though...its because black is powerful, all the pain our ancestors endured helped us thrive(music,culture,athletically,every body wants to fukk a black guy etc)

yea black people like mexican food and might dress white to work. but in the most part black folks do our own thing.

we get immolated ...a lot of chicano's and some whites dress baggy and say NIGGA a lot even when referring to each other...its cool though

Its really not an all out war between black gangs and surenos.I believe ,those clips from the video just give an example of how politics operate in jail and how they always have been since the 80s. In Jail your race is your allegiance ,and so the Damus and Locs would always be on the other side of the fence towards the Surenos.

But the politics and dealings inside jail are very different from what goes on in the street, I don't find it legit for most people to suggest its an all out war between black gangs and surenos just because they are problems between both behind the wall.

Mexican gangs would not usually align themselves with black gangs just because they have a common enemy especially with tensions now, a lot of those alliances you see with Mexican gangs are because they have some history with each other,ie the Swans and F13.And they are quite a few alliances between both Mexican and black gangs.

@ViciousRidah- That's an interesting point. I think that both you and Silencioso make good points, but what are the factors you are using the as the basis for this view? Are you talking primarily about the emergence of those sets in other places throughout the country, or indicators like crime rates or other influences? I think that is important to note, because I agree that both LA and Chi town's Black and Latino gangs have definately had the biggest impact on a national level, but I think they have in different ways, so it's important to distinguish them.

I am talking about they are more Folks and Peoples gangs in nationwide then they are Bloods and Crips.I even think Alabama has more GDs than bloods and crips combined.The south is has a lot of GDs,4CHs,Stones,and Vice Lords ,add to the fact they have more legitimate ties to Chi Townon average than out of town bloods and crips would have to LA .And the Midwest also has more Folks and Brothers, even in midwestern cities were the Bloods and Crips take prominence like KC and St Louis, you still have a full load of GDs there.

@ ViciousRidah- I thought that's what you were saying, I agree. You are absolutely right that GD's are definately the biggest gang in the south, and that the Chicago influence is huge down here. I remember guys in Alabama claiming Peoples and Folks when I was high school in the early eighties. You really did not hear about many LA sets being in the south until after the movie colors.

LA BLACK???????????/ how so? what is really uniqe about LA black gangs? I mean they changed up the cholo style a little and came up with flannels that werent buttoned at the top, dickies that sagged instead of being pulled up and chucks instead of stacy adams?

What else? When I see red/blue I see Californias (2) largest gangs Nortenos and Surenos.....who were wearing those colors dozens of years BEFORE crips and bloods. If blacks from California did anything it was to bring HIP HOP NEW YORK styles to the westcoast. PERIOD. But on their own? NADA.

New York styles and Chicago styles are IDENTICAL .......its the NEW YORK EAST COAST look that is Americas other underground youth/urban/minority style. What is polar opposites from East Coast Hip Hop Fashion is teh Southwestern Cholo gangster look. The one the rappers of the 1990s exported to America as if they didnt steal the look from chicanos!

LA BLACK???????????/ how so? what is really uniqe about LA black gangs? I mean they changed up the cholo style a little and came up with flannels that werent buttoned at the top, dickies that sagged instead of being pulled up and chucks instead of stacy adams?

What else? When I see red/blue I see Californias (2) largest gangs Nortenos and Surenos.....who were wearing those colors dozens of years BEFORE crips and bloods. If blacks from California did anything it was to bring HIP HOP NEW YORK styles to the westcoast. PERIOD. But on their own? NADA.

New York styles and Chicago styles are IDENTICAL .......its the NEW YORK EAST COAST look that is Americas other underground youth/urban/minority style. What is polar opposites from East Coast Hip Hop Fashion is teh Southwestern Cholo gangster look. The one the rappers of the 1990s exported to America as if they didnt steal the look from chicanos![/quote]

@Mayugastank- If you look at my clarification addressed to ViciousRidah, you would see that we are talking about the impact gangs from LA and Chicago have made overall. In particular, as it relates to other cities adopting those particular gangs. Although, when you see red/blue you see Californias (2) largest gangs Nortenos and Surenos, mostly everyone else in this country relates it to Bloods/Crips so on. I'm sure that you will agree ,that you tend to see Bloods/Crips/Folks/Brothers in almost every state. However, You can't say the same about the Surenos. I kw that this is futile and no matter what anyone says you will still have the same view, but I thought it was necessary to note.

they are neither black or Chicano .

the first gang in america IS OBVIOUSLY WHITE. Western Gangs,Nigger killing Gangs,Outlaw Gangs. them folks been around since 1650 or something.

and how does it even matter whose race had the first gang. theres been plenny crew of niggas that took over a hood that was ran by some other niggas for a long time.

and Everybody been on black people shit...its cool though...its because black is powerful, all the pain our ancestors endured helped us thrive(music,culture,athletically,every body wants to #%@& a black guy etc)

yea black people like mexican food and might dress white to work. but in the most part black folks do our own thing.

we get immolated ...a lot of chicano's and some whites dress baggy and say NIGGA a lot even when referring to each other...its cool though









Dressing Baggy is a black thing ?LOL.............as far as whom emulates whom........take a look at the million rappers sporting permanently on their bodies the designs/placements/coloring and symbols of MEXICAN AMERICAN GANG MEMBERS.............now take a look at chicanos and just pry deeply into what we do even remotely similar to blacks! yeah their is a few chicano rappers but everyone including other chicanos know their FAKE ASS HELL and CORNY AS HELL......personally I would like to take every chicano rapper and bitch slap him and tell him to wake the hell up..........


go tell Lil Wayne TYGA-JEEZY-WAK-MAINO-BOW WOW...............to stop acting mexican I mean they all were the fashions/inkwork/drive the whips and do just about everything Southwestern United States Chicanos DO!!!

As far as oldest gang..............WELL ITS HICTORICALLY DOCUMENTED THAT .......................Dogtown 13 and White Fence 13 are the oldest gangs in America still standing. Meaning that these gangs are here today ....exactly where they were in the early 19th century. They didnt fade out-die out-disappear. They are as thick and as deep as EVER.

These (2) gangs are outside of LA COSA NOSTRA .......the oldest criminal organizations WORLDWIDE.

I absoultely AGREE with everything you are saying. Yes America reiterates RED/BLUE with crips and bloods..................because Nortenos and Surenos arent or never did place teh importance on those colors as C/B .............a Sureno can go his entire life and never meet a Norteno vice versa.

BUT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>those colors and that style of dress appropriated by Crips and Bloods was used throughout the SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES by chicano .........it was a chicano uniform used from place to place. Outside of Los Angelos African Americans had NO GANGS AT ALL even closely or remotely similiar to the ones formed in the company of Mexican Americans. In Atlanta-New Orleans-Jackson-Montgomery-New York-DC-Miami- Tallahassee-Charlotte-Baltimore-Little Rock- and most every other HISTORIC AFRICAN AMERICAN CITIES.....................there was nothing similiar to the dickie/flannel/lowriding/stacking/white Td/501/chuck wearing and tatted down AFRICAN AMERICAN of Los Angelos............who resembled almost completely his Mexican American originator...............Blacks from Los Angelos exported a CHICANO style to the rest of black America..............sure it had its own twist and sure blacks gave it its own flavor...............BUT IT IS 110% MEXICAN AMERICAN. And it was never done/seen or practiced outside of SouthWeestern United States EXCEPT by CHICANOS. END OF STORY.

Fact: there's no big univeral street gang culture out there. There's three main gang cultures in the US today: LA black, Cholo/SW Chicano and Chicago. If we're being totally honest, LA black gangs have had the biggest impact nationwide.
There some people who would tell you a different story,I would say Chicago gangs make a bigger impact nationwide.
You could be right. There's probably more Folks/People gang members than Blood/Crip gang members out there. But I still think Crips/Bloods have had the most impact on modern gang stlye.
