Compton is like the ocean. It's real pretty, but anytime anything can happen. The city has two major gangfactions : Southside Crips (SSC) who reside around Alondra Boulevard and intersection Avalon Blvd; And Piru Bloods in the North East section of Compton, just below Lynwood. Other sets include Leuders Park Piru, Elm Lane Piru, Kelly Park Crips, Compton Varrio 70's, Compton Varrio Largos, and the Varrio Alondra's. Murders peaked at an all time high in 1994 with 90 homicides, making it the third most dangerous city per capita in the USA. Between the years 1985 to May 2006, there have been 1397 murders in Compton, most of which are gang/drug related and involve young Black/Hispanic men between the 15-29 age bracket. A young Black male, is 25 times more likely to die from homicide compared to a White male of the same age living in the city. Despite popular misconceptions, the people of Compton are on the whole friendly and welcoming, and do not all deal drugs and gang bang which has been so cunningly potrayed in the bullshit corporate machine. Anytime you come into Compton, you will immediately sense a strong Community Spirit and kinship amongst its people which you wouldn't find in a White gated community in some Californian suburb out in the hills.

The Game is from Compton but he was never serious about his Blood affiliation until he made a record.

There's nothing "cool" about being a gangsta. It ain't cool to pose in front of the camera with a gun in your hand pretending to come from an environment you know nothing about. Especially if you're a White boy from the Suburbs. Has anyone ever told you that you look like a complete moron with that rag top over your paled-out face? Yes, a mutant buffon who generates hysterical laughter, amongst the real criminals of this world. Not only are you a disgrace to the Caucasian race, but the human race too.

On a personal note: I know people who have been shot at. I have friends who have died on the streets. There's nothing "cool" or "hard" about that. Do you think the people who live in the projects and have lost a relative/friend to gunplay are going to look up to a gangster? No. As much as you want to believe that gangbangin is a tough career move, it ain't worth shit in my opinion. It doesn't help much when you have guys like 50 Cent around either. Here is a man who endorses reckless violence and immoral animalism amongst today's youth. His gangsta posturing fulfils the stereotypical image, in which every Black man in America is trying to get away from. His "bad ass" roleplaying is responsible for perpetuating the already grim reality of black-on-black violence in America. All that talk about "killing a motherfucker like it ain't no thang" is nothing but a fucked up tool, which corporate record companies like to sell off for stupid, young, impressionable surburnanite teens who don't know the first thing about living in a harsh, dangerous environment like Compton or St. Louis. I'm sure even less have actually experienced the sudden murder of a young relative or friend . Because here's the reality: when someone you know's dies, its not like in the movies. You can talk all you want about street credibility but don't say shit if all you know about the "hood" is what you've seen on the cinema screen or listened to on your stereo system. When somebody gets shot, they don't struggle for air and say something witty and dramatic before they go... they just fall on the ground, shit their pants, and have their brains gone to the back of their fucking heads. But hey, I guess that would be considered "cool" and "gangsta" in your little make-believe world, right?

A White boy who takes the Gangsta rap image too far by embodying the worst aspects of inner city sterotypes. For the majority of wiggas, retrieving information about "the hood" comes from listening to corporate produced, mass marketed, bubble gum "fad rap" albums from the likes of 50 Cent and The Game. Wiggers usually have trouble conversating in an intelligible manner of any kind and have a tendency to drive around in their mommy's or daddy's motors, listening to the latest "fad rap" album because it makes them feel oh-so "hard" in an otherwise safe surburban setting.
Wigger: "Yo, wassup my niggas, how's it hangin' black?"

Black Man 1: "Yo, you just shot the Wigga, cuz"
Black Man 2: "A white Boy. He wanted equality. I gave it to him. Now he's just a statistic like the rest of us"

Crenshaw and neighboring Leimert Park is one of the largest middle-class black neighborhoods in the United States, despite heavy damage from the 1992 riots and the 1994 earthquake. However, the growth of the gang-dominated crack cocaine trade in the 1980s made Crenshaw district one of the most violent neighborhoods in Los Angeles, with the stretch of Crenshaw Boulevard between Slauson Avenue and Adams Boulevard remaining a virtual free-fire zone for years. For the most of its length Crenshaw is just another unremarkable South Central thoroughfare. It runs from Long Beach in the south up to Wilshire Boulevard where it ends. The fact that Crenshaw stops dead at the northen edge of South Central - at the point where the racial mix starts to change rapidly - gives the street its own significance. Since the fifties, Crenshaw has been a street which African Americans can think of as pretty much their own. Other than that, the only other notable peculiarity of Crenshaw's geography comes around the junction with Slauson; at this point it becomes the widest street in Los Angeles, divided by a central reservation, laid out long ago with grand ambition that somehow it hasn't yet lived up to, except once a week, on Sundays, when the street really comes alive with the Sunday-night cruise. From Adams, past the Crenshaw-Baldwin Hills Mall, through Leimart Park and down Imperial, Black and Mexican youths come out flossin their chromes, and motors. It's the time when African American and Latino youth gets to rule three miles of tarmac. The Crenshaw Cruise is a carnival that anyone can join, and it's free. There are so few places where young men and women can hang out together in South Central, without trouble. There is little public space and local parks routinely become territories of individual gangs. The bigger streets, like Crenshaw, often form the borderlands between gang turfs, are neutral ground, as long as you stick to the street itself. This lack of safe space for people to meet feeds back into gang animosities. If there were more situations like the Crenshaw cruise availble, in which members of different gangs could socialise together there would be less mutual fear and hatred on the streets.
