Raymond Washington from a 1974 police mug shot

Raymond Lee Washington grew up on 76th Street on the East Side of Los Angeles near Fremont High School and is the founder of what would later be known as the Crips. It was in 1969 when Washington organized several neighborhood kids in a click called the Baby Avenues (aka Avenue Cribs). By late 1971 the Cribs where being referred to as the Crips and their reputation around Los Angeles grew. It was around this time when Washington met Stanley Tookie Williams, who lived on the westside and recruited him into the Crips. In 1999, Alex Alonso published a detailed history on the Crips in Territoriality Among African American Street Gangs in Los Angeles which in 2000 inspired the documentary, Lords of the Mafia (aka Gangsta King) which tells the story of how the Crips formed in Los Angeles.

Raymond Lee Washington was killed on August 9, 1979, five months after Tookie Williams was arrested for quadruple murder. No one was was ever arrested in Washington’s murder.

An article about Raymond Washington was published in issue #5 of Allhood Magazine.

    The war between crips and bloods has been going on for more then 40 years. u crackers can stop war all over the world but cant stop it in our very own country. the reason being is bc yal fucks are afraid of a young black man with a gun. u rather we kill each other then to try to stop it.

  20. rico

    I pray one day you stupid niggas get it. Hate your kind, tske from your kind this the new method of slavery= dead or in jail with a few that slip through the crack. (Equivalent of house niggas) yall playing into the cracka’s hands. Glorifying bullshit I hope all y’all under the age of 10.

    Cslip has some unique grammar. What does “resource more” mean exactly? Police urselves, govern urselves,i guess it doesnt mean spelling or educate urselves. Making a living the best way you know how….hmmm i guess thats why you dont own anything urselves or have respect for anything including “urselves”. Every other minority group that came to this country found a way to take care of themselves, educate and protect themselves, then get the hell outta the ghetto. Without killing each other. Blacks are the only group who havent been able to solve this problem. They dont understand the simplest of things. Whats the purpose of a belt? If it doesnt hold your pants up? You would rather walk around having to use 1 hand to hold up your pants and keep them from falling off your stupid ass. The world would be a better place if they could learn how to hold and fire a handgun. Aiming it sideways is stupid and inaccurate. Just like everything else, you wont take the time to learn anything properly. Do me a favor and learn how to read so i dont have to wait in line behind you at burger king while you ask how much each item costs even though prices are clearly marked. One more thing…what has 6 balls and screws black people? The lottery. Is that enough “resource” fo yo ass. Shit for brains animal. Im glad jews and koreans own everything in your neighborhoods. They are the only ones who can tolerate your behavior. They wont be there long bc like everyone else except you, they have a plan to get out of their disadvantaged situation. They will exploit your stupidity until there is no more money to make then move. Then a black owner will probably buy the place and go out of business within 2 years bc they have no clue how to take care of anything. Or they will get robbed or shot by one of their own kind. Great way to “take care of things the best you can”. FYI, thats your problem…your best isnt even close to good enough. Just look at the whole continent of Africa…its a disaster.
