LA 1970's Varrios

Many neighborhoods can not maintain themselves with the level of competition. They may get pulled into other neighborhoods or they just fade out. Only discuss those areas from LOS ANGELES that are gone.

LA 1970's Varrios

Unread post by joker123 » June 23rd, 2009, 6:55 pm

A SHOUT OUT TO THE VARRIOS!

Back in the 1970s, the Chicano Varrios were already posted up representing in every side and sub-division of the city and the county of Los Angeles. The Varrios were not nearly as numerous as they are today since the explosion of the 1980s Varrios which formed from the Football teams, Tag Bangers and the Stoners Boys and Locos generation.

Most Varrios prior to the 1970s, claimed a much larger territory than those which followed upon in the decades of the 1980s and 1990s, and aside from the Central L.A. the East Side and the South Side areas, few other sections of the urban county were congested with Varrios. The Harbor Area, The North and East Valleys, West Los, North East and South East had some very old Varrios representing, but wide tracks of all those areas were devoid of any Varrios.

Back then, the same as nowadays, if a Varrio was known about or heard about in all corners of the county, it carried some weight behind it. It meant that the Varrio was being recognized as being amongst the most chingones. Being amongst the list of heard about Varrios was of utmost importance, for it was a sign that the Varrio had made its mark in the world of the gangland. It was of most importance to get your Varrio up on the County roll-call, and it mattered most that you held up yours with pride.

Most of those 1970s Varrios are still around and in essence a roll-call from the 1980s or 1990s would seem like repetitive of the 1970s. Nevertheless those 1970s Varrios deserve their own page in history. They deserve their names be remembered and a shout out for each of those old names would be a start.

From the 1970s era starting out with the North East L.A. area, a shout out to friend and foe Varrios alike . .

it looks like the SFV and South LA have grown the most since the 70's. West Los the least. In fact West LA has probably declined since the 70's.

You forgot a couple of West Los gangs:
Via Locos/Venice Via
West Side Locos
Venice White Boys (white cholos)

there may have been a gang just called West Los in the 70's. When I was a little kid I'd see that hit up by itself.

a few smaller gangs are missing from the Boyle Heights list - Royal Saints/Santos Royales (early 70's) and East Side Los.

Yeah my mom is like almost 60 and when she went to Lincoln High she said that Alpine St was deep there. I was also looking at some of my aunts old yearbooks from Lincoln and fools from C14,Alpine,38,FTR,ESR were all up in there signing her book. It made me think what was up with Clover at that time, if you had that many varrios at your school. This was before LHTS13,TST,and ELB. When I went to Lincoln it was DOMINATED by East Lake Boys, those fools were like 30 deep everyday after school.

yeah, from what i heard originally one of the founders of KAM was also from Clarence. he shot and killed a member from White Fence and that's when they became a gang. The beef still goes on to this day, Sometimes, you can hear about White Fence and KAM 13 going at each other.
