New York basically originated gangbanging. Now before ya'll west coast niggas try whining and bitching read the rest of this post first. Back even before the Black Panthers fell apart in Cali New York had large sections of the city under control of different gangs. With so many immigrants coming into the city (especially during the Depression) and large ghettos being formed it was pretty much natural for groups of people to ban together to protect themselves and their hoods. Even during the 80's and early 90's when LA was getting mad press for the Blood and Crip shit, New York still had their own gangs like The Black Spades and The Deceptaconz. New York during the late 80's and early 90's was a warzone. Nowadays, not so much. These days NYC is mostly a bandwagon city. There are thousands of niggas out there looking like clowns, disrespecting the real NYC gangstas by copying what they see on Colors and Boys in the Hood. Not to say that theres no real gangstas in New York but the majority are false flagging. LA gangbanging basically revolutionized gangs across the country. Although colors were being used even before Crips and Bloods came about, LA sets did it to such an extent that other gangs across the country started to pick which color they liked better out of red and blue.
you from philly and we know how most niggas from the east either jump on the hate LA bandwagon from ny or get behind Ny when it comes to LA, so you not unbiased. and if you think LA gangs started with b's and c's, then you got it fucked up. The truth is LA has the oldest modern street gngs, meaning niggas pushing narcotic, identifying with a hood, havin different cliques, identifyin with names, throwin up signs, numbers, and colors, grafitti, etc. Check the mexican hoods out over here. and if you wanna go back to those white european immigrant gangs in Ny, well we can get back to the bandit gangs, and outlaw gangs in the west out here as well.
