Does anyone know about the Turbans, a black gang from the Bronx during the 1970s?

I know a little about them. They weren't black they were mostly Puerto Rican. The guy in the video is black PR. They were one of the bigger gangs in the Bronx in the 70's. They had a lot of viet nam vets and were known as being a little older than most other gang membersof the time. They wore Black and gold club jackets with Turbans on the back in old english lettering and sometimes black berets with a gold pom pom. Their main rivals were the Royal Javelins. The gang the guys is yelling at in the video is the Seven Immortals
