Where is 3rd Ward, 5th Ward, and Acres Homes

I apologize if these answers are posted elsewhere. When I was locked up, I ran into a lot of cats from Houston who said they were from 3rd Ward, 5th Ward, and Acres Homes. Some others were hollerin A-leaf but I can't remember if that was from Houston or Dallas. A lot of others from Dallas would talk...

Re: Do You Have A Hard Time Getting A Job DU 2 Gang History?

I am going to go on to my Ph.D. I am really interested in a program at UC-Irvine. Thanks for the encouragement. It's been hard. It's like you have to transfer the gangsta mentality to a different world. No matter how many times or how many ways the enemy came at you. If you weren't dead, you became ...

Re: BEING BLACK IN A SUR VARRIO \BEING A VATO IN A BLACK HOO

Don't take things out of context. I never said whites were weak in prison. More like grossly outnumbered in Texas prisons. I said the white gangs were extremely small, so that obviously means they could hold their own.

Re: Do You Have A Hard Time Getting A Job DU 2 Gang History?

I did time for Agg. Assault with a deadly weapon in Texas. I use to think that the people who came back to the pen five and six times were stupid, but I found out I was the stupid one. When I got out, no one wanted to give me a job. Jack-n-a-box wouldn't even hire me because they thought I would go ...

Re: BEING BLACK IN A SUR VARRIO \BEING A VATO IN A BLACK HOO

In prison it was different though. Blacks and Mexicans stuck with their own. Whites were either punked by the other races or joined the extremely small white gangs. Asians usually fell in with the Mexicans. Although most groups had racist attitudes and race fights would flare up. The majority of fig...

Re: BEING BLACK IN A SUR VARRIO \BEING A VATO IN A BLACK HOO

Growing up in San Antonio, most of the Blood and Crip gangs were of mixed ethnicity. Most of the neighborhoods were also mixed. On the South and West side, there may have been some Latin Folk sets with racist attitudes but it didn't matter because there was no one to be racist against, the entire ar...

Re: Gang Trivia, July 22, 2004, Pirus in Other Cities

The only set I've heard of in San Antonio, Texas is Tree Top Piru, although there wasn't very many of them, and they were as likely to wear green as they were to wear red.. There was one other type of Piru but it wasn't a gang. It was more a rank or status. Certain Blood sets had specific individual...
