People who lack the mental power to read. Having this mental disability causes them to lash out at other people with the same disability. They have to wear colors to recognize who is on their side because they cannot tell friends from enemies. They pretend to be tough but are such big pussies they will not go anywhere without a large number of people wearing the same colors.

When they fight they hold their guns diagonal towards the sky with one arm out and move their wrist downwards to point the gun (this is known as holding it "ghetto stlye" and is the trademark of their mental inability which causes a 200% drop in accuracy) at opposing gangs or police.
50 (or fiddy) cent and Snoop Dogg both claim to be from the bloods and crips.

50 cents inability to read and Snoop Doggs missing teeth support this claim.

stupid ass shit.
GANGS that lonely kids join so they can feel wanted,and important.and mostly to brag to their friends about,and act like total bad asses.Alot of them try to start being so in middle school.they throw up their little handsigns and wear blue and red teeshirts.they go around dissing theie friends,trying to start little girl fights.when really if they got in the middle of the real bloods and crips, well it wouldnt be such a good idea. but whatever.
its all a waste of time and a quick way to get into trouble.

crip:hollah C'S UP B'S DOWN!~
crip:Wut you said? I'll get my water gun and pop a cap.
Crip:ok dew!at the park
bloods and crips:LETS GO MANG
crips mom:come home johnny you have to eat dinner and finish your homewrok!

Two extremely ignorant gangs that its no
wonder theres so much black on black crime today. These gangs are really something that kids shouldnt idolize.
These gangs formed outta Compton Califoria (and in some other Cali areas I think) and have been rivals since the
80's or some shit (I'm not sure how long) Bloods wear red and crips of course blue.

Can be related to halo.

They are different are in a lot of ways.
1.Red vs Blue requires strategy and teamwork.
Bloods AND CRIPS requires nothing but guns.
2.Red vs Blue can be fun or frustrating.
Bloods vs Crips is just stupid.
You go to jail,die or get injured.
So play halo, dont join gangs.

Sometime around the late 70's, to late 80's a lot of small gangs in LA came together. They called themselves the crips and strated ttaking out other sall gnags, they were preactically ustopable until most of the remaining gangs formed into the Bloodz,(founded by Sylvester Scott and Vincent Owens) they chose eveything oppesite to the crips( founded by Raymond C. Washington and Tookie Williams). West Side= East Side blue=red...and so on. they are outnumbered by crips but more than make for it by being more violent.
a typical story of Bloods and Crips :my boys was driving down the street and saw a car full of krabs(crips)they falshed their sign and then shots got fired. they sped off, no one was hurt, but some of my freinds (bloodz) got arrested.(true story)
