one of two things
1) An Italian or Irish "gangsta" who dropped out of school in the eight grade in order to perform heists,run numbers, and shoot members of their own ethnic community because they are doing something bad for buisness. Often they wear suits with buffoonishly sharp lapels while they emulate the characters in movies such as the Godfather. Most Italians hate to be called mobsters or asked if they know someone in the mafia because they understand that "Mobsters" are people who cause great harm to their communities via extortion of buisnesses.
2) A young minority male forced into a society of drug trafficking and distribution because of unfair treatment by the government who runs this country. Often they are involved in murders, drug dealing ect. because they were not given a good eduacation and the onl way they can get out of a ghetto is by being a joining the army,being a football or basketball star or selling narcotics. They are a part of a viscious cycle of incarceration, violence and fear. Often they must become dealers in order to pay for their baby's diapers.
1) The gangsta in the three piece suit taking two hundred dollars from the butcher and honorably giving $20 back to his neighborhood priest.
2)That gangsta in front of your corner store with his pants sagging (a habit he picked up in prison because inmates are not allowed to have belts)
