Amazing pics. All these teenagers in these pics, if they became active with gangs, are quadruple OGs today, but look at them, just lost teens. That pic of them all sitting around at the bottom of the Watts Towers, just lost souls with nothing to look forward too. Wish we knew their names.

I know right

Look at that blood graffiti.

Thats probably literally the first bloods ever in history who wrote that. (Not the kids in the shot obviously) but whoever wrote it.

The magazine article said the owner wrote that on there to let the watts rioters know it was black owned.

Shit maybe that's where "bloods" came from.

I know bone mentioned "blood brothers" in the bastards of the party documentary...

that "Blood" graffiti is not gang graffiti. It says "Blood Brother" which was not a gang reference I don't think. What corner was that pic?
