But someone who calls themselves a Crip or a Blood in Toronto or a Mara in St. 25 There is also a problem of the media and researchers attributing criminal activity to gangs when they are not involved. There is always a danger that the cultural label of gang, and more specifically Crip or Blood, will be given to groups and activities that in reality are in no way associated with these gangs.

In response, black youth formed car clubs and gangs for defense. 8 Over time, they would become increasingly involved in robberies, thefts, gang fights, automobile thefts, and other street crimes. In the mid-1960s living conditions continued to worsen, and black neighborhoods were ripe for protest and rebellion. One of the most dramatic events was the Watts riot, or rebellion, that started on August 11, 1965, and ended six days later.

There are a few autobiographies, journalistic accounts, and law enforcement reports on them, but these can be very limited and biased. The bias is because both gangs remain fairly secretive about what they do, and both members and outsiders often write about impressions rather than facts.

Both gangs and their individual members are frequently self-serving and do not focus on any higher political objective or cause.
