Answer #9

“The Crips are a primarily, but not exclusively, African American gang founded in Los Angeles, California in 1971 mainly by 17-year-old Raymond Washington and Stanley Williams. What was once a single alliance between two autonomous gangs is now a loosely connected network of individual sets, often engaged in open warfare with one another.

The Crips are one of the largest and most violent associations of street gangs in the United States.[2] with an estimated 30,000 to 35,000 members. The gang is known to be involved in murders, robberies, drug dealing, among many other criminal pursuits. The gang is notorious for its gang members’ flamboyant use of the color blue in their clothing. However, this practice has waned due to contentious police crackdowns on gang members.

Crips are publicly known to have an intense and bitter rivalry with the Bloods.

Crips have been documented in the U.S. military, found in bases in the United States and abroad.[6]”

“The Bloods are one of the street gangs originally founded in Los Angeles. The gang is widely known for its rivalry with the Crips. They are identified by the red color worn by their members and their gang symbol which is a sign for pirus or Bloods. The Bloods are made up of various sub-groups known as “sets” between which significant differences exist such as colors, clothing, and operations. Since their formation, the Blood gangs have branched out throughout the United States, with over 15,000 members nationwide.[3][4] Bloods have been documented in the US military, found in both US and overseas bases. [5]”

Answer #11

It didn’t start with racism. It started with a betrayal between the alliance, from which was caused by a small group of the two who had done some work under the table away from the two gang’ notice. A deal went sour between a 19 year old man named Lawrence H. (Crips) and a 20 year old man named Raymond S. (Pirus) Whereso the Pirus member and two suspects shot Lawrence H. and two of his comrades. One had gotten to safety and reported this to a higherarch which then accused the Pirus group of these acts, which they denied, due to the members of Pirus not sharing this event with their own members. This started the Crips in their own mission of retribution against the Pirus members who unknowingly were guilty, and so they retaliated back and forth… So on goes in current times. The accusations were found to be true in future trial of the victim’s families (sided by other witnesses), versus the killers. Though, too much blood was shed to just throw it away. Too many people were hurt and seeked revenge. So on, so forth.

Answer #12

It did start with racism - although that is not the reason anymore.

The crips and the bloods - are similar to two rivaling football teams. Everyone has a rival.

When it comes to gang - the reason they fight the most is because of territory. They claim certain places as theirs - as when someone crosses their territory lines from another gang -they take them out.

Answer #13

a lot of gangs are against each other.

Answer #14

form my understanding (I could be wrong) it was all started about racism.

like I think the crypts are against white people or most racist ones or something and the bloods dont have a problem with a lot of white people or maybe all of them.

and the bloods are called the bloods because they all started as crypts and then the ‘bloods’ or ‘traitors’ as the crypts called them, went against the crypts and started their own thing.

and the bloods call the crypts ‘crabs’ because you knwo how crabs will all help each other out to get out of a tank or something, but then when one of them do, they pull them back down.

thats what I was told by someone. I might be wrong thoough.

(p.s.s the bloods were red and I think the crypts were blue, I have a friend that claims he’s a ‘crypt’ so he shaves off 3 lines at the end of each eyebrow)

I hope I helped , sorry if I didnt =]

Answer #15

They fight because thats all they know how to do. Because they dont get along with each other. Just because they live in different nieghborhoods. Some fight just to look cool or to prove that they are “tough” I was a gang memember…The second stupidest thing I’ve ever done was to join a gang. (fyi I was a Latin King)

Answer #16

watch I bet a new gang will form crips and bloods all over the world will leave there current gang and join the north side barnys(purple because its a mix between the to gangs).

Answer #17

umm because they are enimies && the bloods dont like the color blue && the crips dont like the color red so they fight like retareds they are…but I like the bloods cause my frands in the bloods because her boyfriend made her join or he would slit her throght.lol
