Hello /R9k/, what's your opinion on street gangs and would you ever consider joining one? There are many gangs that allow membership regardless of creed, color, race, or religion. They are tight knit groups that will get you more opportunities for wealth and social status. 2/3 of gang members have reported mental health issues and 1/3 have attempted suicide so you might have something to relate to already.
i don't understand gangs. like, aren't they actually just a violent group of friends? it's weird that they have some sort of official distinction but even weirder that gangs call themselves gangs.
you're just a group of friends, the idiots.
What you think is a gang isnt actually a gang, its fairly clear you never grew up in a neighborhood that had real gang presence. A lot of times a gang member might have a childhood friend from a different set and end up having to break that friendship just for the gang.
Gangs are actually organizations, not just a rag tag crew of people that hang out.
went in at 12
still have those friends but damn, its hard
my friends hit up this place in Tampa on the USF campus and man, it is real stressful and makes u feel bad. it was this middle eastern guy and his friends and (what I think) was his gf. this tall blonde qt in nice clothes who was obviously not from FL, especially not tampa, and was scared as fuck, and it made me feel bad. we made off with alot of weed tho

gang members are in gangs because they grew up in whatever section of the hood they're from
they'd think you're a cop desu
I think they're pretty interesting. From what I understand, their gang wars are feud-based urban warfare, with the added threat of cops. Most people look down on it, but I think it's kinda cool how they've invented a whole new type of warfare.
My Father, Uncle, Cousins, and Brother are all in a Bike gang. The only reason I never got involved was because I discovered the Internet.
Being in a Skinhead gang would be fun in my opinion
You do realize most "street gangs" are 99% niggers and latinos right? A lot of them don't work, are unproductive members of society and frankly just feed off the government like a virus.
There are also some gangs that require you to commit your life to the gang, that means if they say "jump" you say "How high?" and if they ask you to die than you die. It can be just as bad as a cult.
But back to my original statement, street gangs are comprised of nothing but niggers and latinos who are basically just animals that rape, steal, murder and do drugs, you might see a few white people but those are usually white people that tried to adopt the nigger lifestyle.
I have nothing positive at all to say about "street gangs" or "gangs" in general, it's degenerate heathens that are a massive plague on society.
I know a few crips and I've considered joining, but gangs play by stupid rules. If they operated more cleverly and covertly I'd join one. Also if you're in a gang and you get thrown in prison some scumbag in the gang who is higher than you is probably going to order you to murder someone, and if you refuse they'll try to have you killed (or so it seems).
It's better to be a citizen than a gang member. It's a lot less hassle.
