Only NY and CHI have over 100,000 Ricans because they arent as big a Latino group as the Mexicans are. And for Mexican population in the cities its LA, followed by Houston, then Chicago. So if yall gonna ask bout Ricans VS Mexicans yall should ask people whose city actually has both and huge numbers. Yall dont know bout no Ricans! If a Rican doesnt like a Mexican up here in Chicago its prolly because of anomosity that Ricans have now that Mexicans are sorta dominating the latino numbers in Chicago and are still increasing. While the Ricans have been around for decades and were the founders of the gangs like the Latin Kings, Maniac Latin Disciples, PR Stones, etc. And now alotta the Rican gangs (they are still majority Rican) have taken in other groups including the Mexicans. So a Chi Rican Latin King might be kinda arrogant to a Mexican Latin King since the ALKN has roots in the Puerto Rican struggle. All they reall have in common is Spanish but Ricans got that black and Mexicans got that Indian. Im just looking out from the outside because Im not Rican or Mexican, you have to ask one of them. And we have King Cobras in Chicago. I guess the Chi mobs just go every where it seems.
Majority of Latin Kings I know are all of Mexican origins, the original Latin King sets were all up north around the humbolt park area PR side of town, but even those are mostly Mexican now, The biggest latin king sets are all on the south side of the city, and just about all the latinos on the southside are all Mexican.
