In the 30-60's there were criminals that where part of Organised crime like Al Capone and committed crimes such as Racketeering, counterfeiting, illegal gambling, illegal drug dealing, and murder and were also know as mobsters
Today's gangsters are just people who don't how to spell the word and spell it gangsta however they still do some of the crimes up above but they are pussies and weaklings.
However people still think of gangsters in the the earlier times due to movies like the Godfather and Goodfellas.
Modern day Gangster: *spells gangsta*
Random guy:*walks up to gangster* it spelled "Gangster" not "Gangsta".
Gangster: I'm gonna shoot yo dawg. *pulls out hand gun*
Random guy: * gives light slap*
Gangster:*cries like wa wa*
Random guy: *thinks seriously*

Gangsters are often portrayed as members of the African American Underclass when they come from a variety of backgrounds. True Gangsters were members of Mafias and commited white collar crimes. They were generally wealthy, prestigous, and unlike the "Gangsters" of today, had an elementary school education.
The other type of Gangster would be the trash that prowls the streets. Their habitats range from D-class projects to shitty homes with appliances on the lawn and they have little knowledge of the outside world, resulting in a lack of morals, and the intelligence of an aggressive goat. Gangsters often rob stores with items anyone can afford, they have killed the innocent, including small children. Gangsters are sick bastards that have no value. They plague cities. Gangsters cause racism and without them, the US would be a much better country. Gangsters hate the police, heck they hate anyting that is more valuable in society than they are.
How tough Gangsters are:
Gangster: Wat da fuck, get da fuck of my turf
7 Year Old: I'm telling my mom
Gangster: *Pulls out Colt .45* I'll pop a cap up yo ass bitch
7 Year Old: *Throws a light punch*
Gangster: *Starts Crying*

A person who is a part of a larger "gang" who believes smoking weed, doing drugs, murdering people, and breaking the law is cool and thug, they should think about that once they are in jail.
"If I had bad diarrhea, and i raised that diarrhea as my own child, and if I beat it, and that little piece of shit dropped out of high school, then it would become a modern day Gangster. I would rather stick my dick into a ceiling fan" -Franku Senpai, Future King of the Web.
