Re: Do Blacks dispute that Mexicans originated LA gang culture??

Mexican gangs aren't responsible for LA gang culture that's the stupidest shit I've ever heard. Guess we just have to erase the history and presence of white, asian, black, islander and so on gangs in LA. By your logic we should be givin it up to the Irish because they set a lot of precedents that ...

Re: Do Blacks dispute that Mexicans originated LA gang culture??

Damn u messin up ur argument by giving out false info, and not reading up on history mayuga. Tatoo culture in America is not a Chicano invention, freaks, sailors and other outcast oddball white people were immersed in the tatto culture, (which by the way always had tats of ladies) before olde engli...

Re: Do Blacks dispute that Mexicans originated LA gang culture??

Hell yeah I’m going to continue calling you a racist, because wasn’t it you who referred to black folks on another post on this thread as “nigs”? But that’s beside the point. Arguing whether or not you’re a racist is simply a moot point, for it is what it is. With that said, Nortes wearing red banda...

Re: Do Blacks dispute that Mexicans originated LA gang culture??

In one of the above posts, I said I never stated that black folks codified the old English letter writing practice. What I should've said was: "I never said black folks were the first to codify the practice of using old English letters."

Re: Do Blacks dispute that Mexicans originated LA gang culture??

Speaking of the bandanna thing, as it relates to the bloods. The only reason why the bloods chose the red bandanna, was due to them reacting to the crips and their choosing of the blue bandanna. Not only that, black folks back in the day use to refer to themselves as 'blood', therefore those who ref...

Re: Do Blacks dispute that Mexicans originated LA gang culture??

And another thing let me disabuse folks of the notion that the crips and bloods started because of ese gangs. I use to hear that a lot in the late 90's and early part of this century. Don't hear it too much nowadays, but I remember that during the time periods I just mentioned, which wasn't all that...

And another thing, black folks didn't get the wearing of the red and blue bandanna from mexican gangs, and I doubt very seriously that eses were claiming area codes back in the 60's, seeing as how in those days, there weren't that many area codes, for a particular area. I remember in the 70's, where...

Re: Do Blacks dispute that Mexicans originated LA gang culture??

Blacks move to fast to stay with one thing, Mexicans are more about mantaining tradition.

This is like telling me that Brenton Woods is a mexican, simply becaus...

My understanding is Blacks added to the Lowrider Culture, true enough, but it still doesn't take away from the fact that it was started by Chicanos. you're talking about one element of Lowrider culture, that came after. Regardless of whether Chicanos created lowrider culture and whatnot, you do hav...

And let's remember that much of what we now know as "Pachuco" culture, was rooted in black culture of the 30's and 40's, from the threads (clothes), music, slang, walk, dances, and the like.

Another reason why this war may be "deflating" which is something that I told Alonso awhile, and that is-THE BLACK POPULATION IN L.A. IS DEFLATING.
