    I don't know what's more shocking...the KKK joining the Crips for a protest or the fact that there are actually Crips in Memphis. :shock:

    More like right outta Union. :thumb:

    Is Memphis just not "gangsta" enough to imagine there being Crips (and Bloods, and whoever else)? I lived on an island in North Carolina and there were Crips there. They're everywhere. They may not be huge in Memphis, but there are certain places you don't walk or drive down after dark, if at all.

    The Vice Lords, the Crips, and the Bloods all have their southern headquarters in Memphis.

    It ain't all about the music and booze on Beale.

    The Crips are pretty much nationwide aren't they? They had them in Houston, although the Latin gangs were a lot more numerous.

    I'm an optimistic person by nature, but I just can't help but think that cruel intentions are behind all of this...on both sides?:hmm:

    Yeah, but I just find it funny when people assume that Memphis, or any urban area, wouldn't have gangs, especially ones like the Crips. I mean, the school my wife teaches at is in a little rural, po-dunk town, but it's basically an inner-city school. Parents moved to the town from Memphis and it brought teenagers who were already gang members and it's spreading out. Teacher's get death threats, students get raped, armed robbery, etc.

    And if you walk in there you'll encounter 4 kids and at least 1 is involved in a gang.

    And this is a sleepy little farm community of about 1500.

    Oh, I know. It's just that Grape Street is a street in Los Angeles. Calling themselves Grape Street Crips is a form of totemic thinking.

    In related news, the Minnesota Vikings don't actually sail longboats to their games, either.

    Nowhere in my post did I say Memphis didn't have gangs.

    I wasn't referring to you specifically about Memphis not having gangs. I was referring to a wide held belief of many people that Memphis is not gangland.

    As far as geography goes the Minnesota Vikings suck.

    It's cool, it read as if you were addressing me. But it'd be a rare idiot who thinks that a city of almost a million doesn't have gangs, I'd imagine.

    Hence their preference for jet airplanes and not sailing ships. Much faster to leave the frozen Hell that is Minnestan.
