Gangster/Gangsta A Gangster is a member of a professional crime organisation, such as a gang or a mafia group. Usually, members of the mafia or similar organization are referred to as mobsters while individual high-scale criminals who participate in mob-like activity or members of a small criminal enterprise are referred to as gangsters. There can be overlap, however, such as in the case of Dutch Schultz, who ran his own independent gang yet also worked as part of a coalition of Jewish mobsters aligned with the Italian mafia. Anyone who believes gangsters are always black couldn't be more wrong black people had nothing to do with gangsterism untill gangster rap, for instance famous gangsters (The Kray Twins, John Gotti and Don Vito Cascio Ferro)

Gangstas are usually white but can be black.
