Are there many South American majority gangs in the US? I only know of one. An Ecuadoran gang in Brooklyn NY called Sombra Negra. I've heard the larger Latino gangs in NY like LK, Neta and DDP have some South Americans, also. South American Latinos seem among the least likely minorities to go in for gang banging.

LK and Ñetas definitely have South and Central Americans

I had a LK at my gym from some projects I forget in Queens who had also used to live near Downtown LA a ways back. He was not mexican but also not Caribbean I forgot his nationality. Ñetas whole thing is accepting everybody so yeah they have everything in there.

I can't see that being true for DDP but maybe 3nis

There's more activists from South America than gangsters in NYC LOL I don't think there are any majority South American gangs maybe Central American
