When ghetto people drive broken down vehicles in circles at public intersections and in residential neighborhoods. These people—typically uneducated and poor black or Hispanic males—have little self-worth and lash out to community by disrupting people’s lives and destroying public property and neighborhood property values.

Some ghetto people support sideshows as a misguided cultural expression similar to one expressing oneself by committing violent crimes.
Hey Paco, did you hear about that thug who died in a sideshow? What an idiot, he was dancing around and got hit by that car. One down, 100,000 more thugs to go.

This is official Town Bizness! The sideshow started at lest twenty years ago in Deep East Oakland, CA. In the ghetto Eastmont mall parking lot. Now it can happen anywhere that Oakland people congregate.We might show up in your city next! It is an impromptu, car show. We ride the strip, stunt, get at, or mingle with the opposite sex, do donuts, figure 8's, hang out the windows while we drive, drive wit the doors open and basically do it real live, Yadada-mean! No one and I mean no one has a strip that cracks harder than the infamous Deep East Oakland, "Foothill Strip". Str8 Up!
We did it real big at the sideshow last night!

A show performed by some gay ass mofos from the gay yay area thinking they hard by actin all hyphy hyphy hyphy. These fools think they're hard core thugs but they the wackest, lamest, dumb mofos that think the world revolves around them. Someone needs to give them a clue and tell them to get out of their lame ass ghetto and quit fukin with other's properties. No respect, no dignity, these are some sad ass wankstas who think that fuckin with people's rides is "gangsta"!
