Its a Mexican gang in LA started in a place called Florencia. Roughly 2,000 members mostly in Souther Cali and Arizona/New Mexico
The 13 stands for the letter "M" which means they are an affiliate of the mexican mafia - as M is the 13th letter in the alphabet
They also go by F13 for short and normally mark there territory by graffiti with arrows and F13. it can be observed when in the Florencia are of Cali at the back of Liquor stores and street corner walls
Recently, as of 2007, they have been in the news for killing random black people (innocent) as they did not know if they had gang affiliations. It has created alot of racial tension - particularyly in the prison population as seen in 2007's black/mexican prison riots.
Hope peace and understanding come soon.

An insult to someone from the east coast - Usually those with gang affiliations (crips, etc).
The slang-word "cheese toast" is basically a distortion of "EAST coast"
Started out in LA amongst Latino gangmembers. The mexican F13 gang was known to have ran up on a innocent random black man at a bus stop in 2007 and yelled "Cheese toast!" and shot him (he lived though) for believing just because he was black he was in a rival black gang. Pretty sad...
Cheese toast is also said like "cheese toast nigga" or "cheese toast slob" - (slob is a bad word for a blood gang member)
Cheese Toast - it comes from the word "EAST COAST"
gang member - "Ay holmes u see that cheese toast fool down the block, lets smoke him"
white kid in california - "Fuck the CHEESE TOAST!"
