Samoans in LA

These concepts are socially constructed and have been given much weight. What are your thoughts?

lol, word, there's some whites in Compton, i wonder if they b gettin down with Bloods and Crips, that would be funny. anyways. theres maaddd Somoans in Compton?


what would be so funny about white people being hoodstas in the hub? i get tired of people thinkin white people cant do shit jus because theyre white. yall need to come to the hood and i bet my OG nigga whiteboy will lay any nigga on here down.. quit down talkin a race.. yall dont want them doin it to u.. "do unto others, as you want them to do to you"


Your OG is white? LOL. he from Compton? isnt that illegal? i aint sayin nothin bout white niggas, the kool to me. i just didnt know they was in Compton, i know some hoodsta whiteboys. but very few. i think its dumb how whiteboys wanna bit off of our culture when long ago they was oppressing us kallin us niggers[/quote]

that's like sayin'...it's dumb how blacks live in beverly hills and dress in a&f...come on man...the world isn't that small...[/quote]



THATS DIFFERENT THEY HAVE MONEY MOVE INTO A NICER AREA THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT DUDE WAS TALKING ABOUT![/quote]

how is it different? same concept...because a white grows up in compton and around them...he is biting off their culture? same thing with a black kid who grew up in beverly hills...is he biting off the "white people's culture"?

In regards to why there are so many Samoans on the west coast its because its generally the first point in which people enter the US, also
America Samoa is classified as part of the US and citizens get permant residency in the US. Whereas Western Samoa are independent and the majority of people from there migrate the New Zealand and Australia.

Also I didnt realise that there was any white people in Compton, Anyone know of any white familys living in East LA.

San Francisco, Daly City and San Jose have a lot of samoans as well

Samoan and Tongans are definately different, Tongans tend to be a bit darker in skin colour and have different facial features. Samoans tend to have asian looking eyes, but they do speak a similar language as they are both classed as Polynesian.

Do Samoans get along with Tongans in LA or do they fued, I know that there is some bad blood between different pacific islanders.
Also are there any Hawaians or NZ Maoris living in LA or is it just Samoan and Tongans.

yea, a lotta Tongans and Samoans beef in LA. the Samoans outnumber the Tongans though. the biggest presence of Tongans is in Inglewood...that's where TCG is at. Samoans can be found in Carson, Long Beach and Compton. most beef cuz most Tongans is crips and most Samoans is Bloods, with the exception of PVCC and SOS. i ain't sayin' all of them beefin', but a lot are...

in the Bay, it's different...my homie, who is Tongan, is from East Palo Alto area...where there's a lotta Tongans and Samoans. he told me they all koo...for the most part...mostly personal beefs. ain't really no set-trippin' either...just a lotta grimy foos who slang or get down.

ain't too many other polys in LA...there's some Hawaiians.

WTF someone said Tongans are darker than samaons. Hell nah. Samoans are wayy darker than Tongans. And though samoans can easily be defined by there Long Course hair, Tongans is even more distinct. They have the longest hair in the region. Very straight. And Most tonguns have blue eyes, unlike samoans. But yeah Samaons and tongans beef in LA. SOS, TCG, PVCC, Crenshaw Mob, Roughneck Tribe. They all beef.

From what I understand Tongans, somoans, and fijians all have problems with each other and I think that has been part of their history since day one back on the islands and it just carried on to gang bangin. I know they highly populate new zealand too and its funny bekuz tonga is know as" the friendly islands"

Sometimes I'd tell people that I'm related to The Rock. Just thought I'd add that part in.

More curious to the fact that there are so many Samoans in Alaska. What's up with that?
