Why do young people love to gang-bang?

Gang Bang

By Brandon Dixon

It’s a shame the way we love to gang bang.
Growing up in an environment where niggahs slang caine,
struggling, tryin’ to survive
on another niggah’s high.

Things seem to never change,
just time, dates, faces, places and the way the game is played.
All bitches is loving you for’ what you got,
and the niggahs is hatin’ and plottin’ on tryin’ to take your knot.

It’s a shame the way we love to gang bang.
Niggahs rep they hood to the fullest, rather it be a Crip, Blood, or Hustler gang.
As he rolls through the enemy’s hood, tryin to make a name for himself, he hangs out the window, the ground catches his fall.
Now, they’re gaspin’ fo’ their last breath.
Drops of blood turns into pools,
mothers at their child’s side screaming “o lord why?”

It’s a shame the way we love to gang bang.
Back in the day homies looked out for those in the pen for representin’ da hood.
All was one.
Now, homies is out for self, rollin with inner hood clicks.
Niggah’s is snitchin’ at will, busters is getting all the funds, and living off the rep of the real ones,
homegirls representin’ and is harder than most niggahs.

    This poem is really deep in many ways but the title says it all. “It’s a shame” really says allot to me and I hope it does to others as well who are considering getting involved with gangs. I understand how tough it can be out there for our youth and finding the gang to release stress and help to cope with life is not the answer. This guy has apparently seen it all out and in prison and now with his experience he can write about what really happens as a gang member. Thanks for sharing this poem with us, Brandon Dixon

    Only small minded people with no direction in life and wasted on drugs or alcohol are more apt to become gang bangers. To some, it’s handed down from generation to generation. They are told that is how they become men. Luckily, suburban white kids are no longer emulating these losers as much as they used to. This newer “black” music that has overcome gangster rap, is like gay dance music or something, so soon we will be seeing an influx of homos instead of wanna be gang bangers. The word gang bang when I was growing up meant four dudes to one girl. Now it will mean four dudes to one dude…

    I honestly don’t think there’s was nothin’ wrong with bangin’ WHEN IT FIRST STARTED. Nothin’ wrong wit protecting your neighborhood from foreign invaders. If the Mexicans going around talkin’ bout they “hate guys” this and “Mayate” that ain’t nothin’ wrong wit forming an alliance like the blacks in the Harbor Gateway area where that 14 year old gurl was ki*led by that pucci gang 204th street. I wouldn’t c nothin’ wrong if the black youth banded together and shot back at that pucci gang. NOW, only problem wit gangbangin’ is when there’s no order along with the drugs and stuff. That made it out of control with innocent people gettin ki*led and stuff. Now it’s like a royal rumble. It’s nearly every gang for itself. No direction just mayhem.

    Unfortunately, gang banging is a part of life for some youth. That is the hustlin’ and sexual gang bang. It is an unfortunate reality that will only cease when more positive gestures, deeds, experiences, influences and actions are readily available to those at risk. For those of us doing well we should mentor someone that is not. If time is an issue then a monetary donation to programs that support at risk youth would be honorable. Even if we are not doing well financially, if you are a concerned parent to your child be a surrogate to someone that does not have a concerned parent. If all of us try to reach one child, just one, it will snow ball. That one person will not just change their way of thinking but will begin to emulate then teach others. It may not end by our lifetime but our children, or their children, may experience it. Let’s all try to make a difference.

    I joined a gang Vista King Trogans back in the 80’s because the mexicans kept jumping me. so the homies said if i wore the blue rag they would push their blankes off and they were true to their word. plus the ladies loved the bad guy stuff. watched quite a few people get ki*led in my life time. including my older brother. stay in school and leave the gangs and dope alone.

  11. A gang is a family. A foundation where you can be taught to protect others and make money. School don’t teach you that sh*% . Thats why people love to gang bang. Either get rich or die bein high.
