As for surs when us and the homies do gang bang on magnolia street 15-16 thick, tho it ain't often, when we do nigga we get excited when we cross path with surrs nigga no matter where they from, we fight more amongst ourselves over who gets to temple drop who, and who gets to pocket check who, nigga... Wallets, weed, coke, blue rags, throwbacks, shanks, muthafuchan, hats, chains nigga name that shit, we come up and take that shit on a grimey jack move nigga...

Funny shit is we always tell these sureno ass niggas, if one of the homies got beef with a sur from some other barrio nigga we hit up that whole click, we talk nigga, let them niggas know its strictly one on one fade nigga, toe to toe, nobody jumps in, and if one of they bois do jump in, we let them know ahead of time that somebody finna get shot.

Blacks in the Bay area don't take that same approach. They don't trip when Nortenos use that word. Anyone else uses it? It'll be a different story. I don't know what else to tell you. Seems to me you just don't understand N. California. In fact, it's obvious you don't. So, why speak on it?
Why speak it?LOL.......I'll give you a pass homeboy,I'll tell you like this if I hear any mexican saying the N-word I'm fenna check em' point blank!!!!!!!And by the way about Oak Park being like the bay.lmao.....you dont know shit huh?Fool Oak Park has a whole nation of bloods and don't forget about the ''Heights''Blood City...how is that bay area influence?Norteno are Influence by Blacks....Blacks aint Influnce by Nortenos.....~REAL TALK PARTNER~.......(one of meaning saying that N/M use that is black slang)
If Nortenos are influenced by Blacks, then why don't they just drop the Norteno thing altogether? Why the Spanish varrio names, like Decoto, Varrio Centro Sacra, Varrio Franklone Sacra, etc?

Why the VFW symbol?

Why the lowrider arte with Cesar Chavez blended in with the bouncing Impala?

Why is Calo (Spanglish) still being used in many Norte rap songs, and, was used in just about all Norte rap songs only 5 years ago?

I'm not from Oak Park, but you're getting pretty close to home for me. Let me tell you like this, and this is the truth. Oak Park has one thing common with L.A., CLAIMING BLOOD. Little else.

The difference between me and you is that I went to high school in Oak Park, and you know what you know about Oak Park from watching youtube.

And, you have the right to check anyone you want for calling you the N word. You'll never hear me saying that word. So, if that's what's stuck up your a** right now, let it go. I will never disrespect a Black man or woman by saying that word unless it's damned certain it's being used in the 3rd person, and about the word itself.

I don't champion the fact that many Nortenos use that word, either. They probably don't run around using it freely. Probably just around tight homies that they grew up with. But, even that's a pass. No White boys are saying that word.

That's a loaded response for two simple points that I made; 1) Nortenos used to go into L.A. and start funk with Surenos, and, yes, Magic Mountain was a common spot for this being that it's the first stop in the Grapevine on the way to L.A. Lot's of Nortenos used to go their back in the day, flamed up, looking for Surenos. Anymore? No. That point was made to describe something that took place a couple of decades ago. 2) There could be some Nortenos in L.A. for whatever reason, but, obviously, they aren't gang banging, at least not actively.

All I brought up was a reference to the past and a what if scenario on the present, really in response to Individual's comment, and I think you misunderstood a great deal of it. Especially in the end when you say, 'Not to hate on 'y'all'. Who are you referring to when you say 'yall?
You are a mathafucking lie!!!!!!Nortenos cant even push the FAKE sur out of their own town,SO WHY and the fu-- are they going to drive over 300mi. to set trip on some rivals????They can't even drive around the corner to check the fake ones and you say they go to magic mountain to look for the real ones hahaha........you should be banned for faking the funk!!!!!!!!!!!You make real N/M sound silly as fu--!Damn new wave Norteno...
I was reffering to the 1980s, a time when Nortenos certainly were pushing the Sur out of their town. Yes, I know guys that used to drive 400 miles, to Magic Mountain, soley because they knew there would always be a gang of Surenos there and so that they could fight them. I don't know if it was a right of passage or that they just had death wishes, but back in those days that's the kinb of s't Nortenos did to test each others' manhood. Kind of like the 3 guys cutting threw Hazard at the beginning of American Me.

No fake s't. I wasn't talking about today. To be honest, I don't know if Nortenos do that anymore. But I know they did 20 years ago. Don't know what to tell you. I wish I would have went along and filmed them, just to post it on youtube (your obvious source for Norteno info..), only thing is I was 12 years old at the time.

Do yourself a favor, read somebody's entire post before you go off on a tangent. For the third time, my point was a historical reference, not a reference on what Nortenos are doing today. Couldn't tell you. I'm out of that loop. But I know my history, especially on Sacramento, some Nortenos and some Bloods. Try me, anytime.

Some/A lot of Surenos seem to think all Nortenos act Black. Some/A lot of Nortenos from Salinas to San Jose over to San Joaquin Valley (Maybe not Sacarmento.) are just as Chicano if not more than some Surenos. Now places where Mexicans & Blacks tent to have the best working relationship in Northern California I believe San Francisco, Oakland and East Bay and maybe Sacarmento, Black influence or more prevalent. But, w/Some of their Chicano heritage interwined.

It's funny to me as how some/A lot of Surenos hate Blacks, but yet I see Sureno Rappers use some Black slang: dog, crackin, etc... and some of their gang-bang style.

I know they fought whites back in the day,but the thing with chicago, its not as racial nowadays like on both coasts, you got whiteboys reppin GDs, VLs, SCR has close relations with hoover, LKs basically let in any race.
