Re: KKk in so. cali

Let's not confuse your typical peckerwood/skinhead type with the Klan. Actual KKK is tiny in membership nationwide, and primarily in areas where they always had a hold-ie the south and midwest. They're somewhat secretive in nature and are probably going to be more loudmouth than active... There migh...

Re: Biker gangs

Apparently people have a problem with the word "recruit".. Of course OMC's like the Mongols or the Vagos aren't hitting up the varrios to "recruit" members, but we can all agree that it's not uncommon for members of those clubs to have street gang backgrounds. It's semantics. The...

Re: DO you support homies and what they symbolize?

"Homies" are nothing more than goofy trinkets, collectors items to some. To an adult with his/her own perspective on life, theyr'e utterly harmless. To an impressionable child, it may send or re-enforce the wrong message. "Homies" irrefutably represent gang members and the gang c...
