Big Stretch speaks on Belizean ancestry and the many LA gangs with Belizean members

STREETGANGS.COM | February 12, 2015

EXPOSITION PARK- Belizeans have migrated to Los Angeles in significant numbers since the 1960s and they settled in South Los Angeles, along the Western, Normandie, and Vermont corridors. By the 1980s, Belizeans began joining traditional Black American street gangs in South LA, often times assimilating to Black culture where there Belizean background went undetected as they had the ability to speak American English and their own creole dialect with family.

Today, many of South LA’s street gangs on the westside are predominately Belizean. This includes nearly every gang from Venice to Florence between Vermont and Crenshaw. The Fruit Town Brims, Rollin 30s Crips, 52 Hoover Gangsters, Trouble Gangster Crips, Van Ness Gangsters, Rollin 20s Bloods, Rollin 40s Crips and the Black P Stones from the City and Jungle have large Belizean membership.

Today, Belizean gang members like Big Stretch are proud to claim their culture and heritage.
