A gang founded in LA by Raymond C. Washington and Stanley "Tookie" Williams. Originally the gang was meant to follow up the anti-racism gang named black panthers, but because it excisted from teenagers they didn't manage to do that. Eventually the gang ended up doing crimes and defending themselfs from other gangs.

The gang adopted blue as their gang color and wear adidas = All Day I Destroy A Slob(insult for blood), Fubu = Fuck U Bloods Up, K Swiss = Kill slobs when i see slobs and Britain Knights - BK = Blood Killas.

If you even suspect a territory to be 'crips turf' run for your life cause if they suspect you to be a rival gang member they will kill you without sorry.
Crips kick yo ass when you least expect it.

Stands for Community Revolution In Progress. If you see any crips outside of the United States then their FAKE wanabes that think its cool to throw the blue flag and intimidate others. My last trip to Germany i was amazed to see how many white youths over there were so infatuated with gang culture in the US they go as far as to mimic their "c" walk and dress like them aswell.

A member of the San Francisco based street gang called the Crips. Blue-clad archrival of the red-clad Bloods. The name Crip originates from the original name of the Bloods; "Piru". In reverse, that's Urip, and then the "U" is rotated to say "Crip". Voila.

Extremely large gang that oringinated in L.A. California. They rivals to the other main street gang in L.A. the bloods. Crips where blue bandanas around their mouth or in their left back pocket. They are known to where blue clothing and are an extrememly dangerous and highly respected gang! They use the word cuzz when addressing each other. They also have hand signs which they use to identify each other.

When writing they also tend to cross out 'b's in words annd replace them with 'c's(this tends to show disrespect).
Crips manly consist of blacks but in many prisons accross the United States white crips are appearing in ever greater numbers.
