There's two kinds in the modern world:
The cool ones with Italian accents, Tommy Guns and Tuxedos/Suits. (Deceased, but proud of them existing)
The really stupid ones that walk around like Gorillas wearing saggy pants, do-rags, and carrying Handguns, AK-47's, Machine guns, doing Graffiti, Crack, Meth, Heroin, Weed, and are stupid enough to hate racism, yet cause racism.
15 year old boy: "Um, hello?"
30 year old Gangsta: "Wazzup white trash, Bleach Stain, Cracka? da fuck ya doin here??"
Boy: "Nothing, dude"
Gangsta: "Dun be callin' me dude, muthafucka, I'll kill ya!" -bang bang-
Bloodz, Cripz, MS-13, Norteneo, Sureneo, are examples of Modern day gangs that terrorize the streets of innocent people and are proud of their acts of Murder, Violence, and whatever the fuck you wanna add.
Stupid assholes who love to kill babies, women, children and older people, who would like to kill anyone who is not their color, and just love being ignorant. School is dead to them, and they are proud to support that.
Teacher: "Ok, will anyone tell me what the answer is to number one? William?"
Gangster: "Nu-Uh nigga, my name be Trekka, so fuck dis shit, fuck you, FUCK YOU ALL, HAHA, I hope you gon' die, cuz educashun is stupid, got dat? SCHOOL ISH STUPID, FUCKIN' NIGGA CRACKA ASS WHITE TEACHA, Fuck dis place"
Shit-stains like these should be erased from the planet.
There are two types of "gangster":
1) A wannabe thug, often illiterate and an inhabitant of a downtrodden ghetto that hangs around in "gangs"; largely associated with the African-American subculture. These try-hard wanna be "gangstas" attempt to make themselves appear like real criminals by graffiting buildings, smoking/selling drugs and trying to looking all "bad-ass and macho an'-shit, yo". An utter degradation of what true gangsters represent (see below), and street wannabe "gangsta"-types don't hold a candle to what real gangsters are.
2) The *real* gangsters are those behind organised crime; most notably the Mafia. Responsible for blackmarket trade, epsionage, organised beatings/assassinations, etc. "The Godfather" portrays the archtype of true gangsters, showing the brutality of mob beatings, shootings, running rackets and abusing woman, alcohol and everything in between. The real gansters are *not* to be confused with the aforementioned definition, commonly used as it might be.
1) I'm da gangsta in da hood, yo. Bustin' shiznitz an' layin' da cuts straight sittin' on yo ass wiv me Colt 40 and homies, cuttin' back a fat split in me crib, yo.
2) "All right, you just shot 'em both. Now what do you do?"
"Sit down and finish my dinner."
Crip Lover BK 4 Life, you are an IDIOT. The first gangsters were not African-American, they were Italian. There are MILLIONS of white gangsters out there that aren't wankstas any more than your average Crip or Blood is.
Al Capone was a gangster. Tony Soprano is a gangster. Crip Lover BK 4 Life is NOT a gangster. Ja Rule is NOT a gangster.
A gangster is one who participates in organized crime, typically the Mafia; gangsters commit crimes (killing, gambling, drug dealing, prostitution) for money.
A mobster is a gangster.

What are you talking about? I've never even heard of a black gangster. Gang member, yeah, but not a gansgter. Gangster's, the real ones, are hardcore Italian.
wannabe: "Yo, sup, man, why you gettin all in my crib and face, dawg?!"
gangster: "I prefer that you speak english if you do not want me and my boys to see that you are "six feet under" very soon."
wannabe: "Whatchyo talking about, foo! That be some tight sheet!"
gangster: "very well. you have made your choice. I shall see that you get a proper funeral with the fish, so that you do not disturb me any longer."
(shoots him with a machine gun)
A badass who can give respect and gets respect. A member of the Mafia.
Not to be confused with retards that call themselves gangstas.

An individual who is a member of an organization that profits through organized crime. Also known as Mobsters. The guys in South Central strapped with guns and carrying large amounts of weed are more commonly known as 'gangbangers', not to be confused with 'gangsters', though both are equally dangerous.
Gangsters/Mobsters:Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, John Gotti.
Gangbangers:Bloods,Crips, most other South Central street fraternities.
Unlike what most people think a gangster is, a gangster is usually a white person in the mob. This term is also synonomyous with mobster. Gangsters usually hate the feds and in the golden days they bootlegged drugs but mainly alcohol and robbed banks. they had massive gunfights and had the nice sedans. Gangstas are the black ones in so cal popular in the early 90's. Even if you are black you must admit that white people are the best criminals.
Bonnie&Clyde, Al Capone, Jon Gotti, Pretty Boy Floyd, all were white and the biggest criminals to ever live. So bloods and crip that bitch.
