NAME YOUR HOOD NICKNAME

Unread post by Lonewolf » August 9th, 2004, 7:08 pm

Barrios and Gangs have a Nickname, Moniker or Acronym that they name their city or commnunity with. A lot of those will apply it to their Barrio or Gang name. What is yours called?
I compiled a list of them, feel free to correct or add to the list. If you can throw in some more info on your Town, also fell free to do so.

Alright S-DOOBIE, so we have one correction to the list. I know I've heard it, but maybe I've heard it wrong. Thanks for the correction though.

How about these others from Northern Califas,
SACRAMENTO = SACRA,
SAN JOSE = SAN JO,
BRODERICK = BEDROCK,
TURLOCK = TURLOCO,
WATSONVILLE = WATSON,
SAN MATEO = SAN MATAS,
FAIRFIELD = FAIRLAS,
PITTSBURG = PITAS,

From TEJAS,
EL PASO = EL CHUCO,
SAN ANTONIO = SAN ANTO,
CORPUS CHRISTI = CORPAS.

Keep the list going Homies, don't stop.

No dis here lonewolf, but sometimes it seems like if you don't really know something, you make up your own version or best guess just to see if someone corrects it. Kinda like you're just fishing for information. what's up with that?

I don't think you ever seen San Pipas either or half the others listed, but I can vouch as true for a fact just about all of them including "santa mona", but people from these places can speak for themselves. Keep in mind that a lot of these are not "gang names" only city or town nicknames, just like you use panik & I use lonewolf, so I hope you don't go thinking that they're actual gangs, some do use the names listed, but a lot of others don't. One more thing, the Mexicans can have a nickname for a city or town, while the Blacks can call it something completely different, like per say Pasadena, we call it Pasa for the most part, but the Blacks will call it Dena.

Now, about going fishing, "yes I do", I don't know nor claim to know everything or everybodys hood, least of all be an expert on them. But this is a place where I can come in and find out about them without having to actually drive down and see it first hand - even though I would like to do just that - and I do everytime I visit someone or get invited to a party somewhere, I also be always looking to spark up a conversation with anyone I meet, at work, at the park, friends of friends, friends of family, etc. You know what they say "It takes one to know one", and I do recognize "G's" anywhere. I don't see anything wrong with going fishing Panico, if you don't learn something new each day then it is a wasted day.

If you're going somewhere else with this "fishing" inquiry, then speak up and do your challenge, no need to dance around the subject.

I always come up and put up info for people to check out and add, correct, dismis, or whatever. You on the other hand have come up here and question sh-t without putting out anything concrete, just like the Orange County list of which I'm still waiting on you to put on "your" knowledge of "your" county, I ain't seen it yet, where is it ? complete it with the initials for each gang that you know ? Same goes for this list, what can you contribute ? So far you're only been a critic. I hit you up before and asked if you were Mexican or Hispanic and your answer was "no", so I say this to you Panico "no mames wey, no te claves y no the estriles en ondas de hadas" I say this to you in this manner because you have pissed me off, you don't know nada about us, so why are you continuing to come up here and question my credentials, if it was from other raza like BIG BANDIT, BAD BOY, BIGG LISTO, MARTINEZ, GIBBY and the like, I could have a few words back and forth, but from you "I'll tell you to stay on the sideline because you don't know zero and like I said before "If you know something for a fact then go ahead and put it up for all to see", but don't come up trying to say something and not saying anything. I never go on to the Asian, Crip, Blood, White forums or topics because even though I'm familiar to an extent with them I am not one of them therefore I won't challenge them, I'll put questions forward but not pretend to be what I'm not, so I stay out of those areas.
Panik, I thought you were cool, but I come to find out that you're just a wannabe Mexican or something, I for one reject you and your familiarity with our ways "straight up - you're too far away from understanding or ways - period". A LA GOMA CON TI CHANCLAS ESCUINCLE.
