So I have this Sociology project, to give a presentation on the Crips and the Bloods.
Anyone have any good documentaries on them?
The only thing I found on them as far as documetaries are Made In America and Gangland.
I have some personal experience with them, but would like to know if yall could help me out a bit.
Not exactly... But Im not gonna get into a gang history timeline
But I dont kno, and Im not gonna look it up right now cuz I really dont care all that much, if Tookie waz already in prison by the time the Bloodz banded together against the Crips.
Pac ran w/ the bloods and used them to get street cred. He waz never a gangsta... We'll probaly never know if Shug waz controlling Pac on puppet stringz, or Pac waz the one orchestrating hiz image...
But fuck all that. Howz your paper doing? No offense, but izn't writing a paper on the war bout Bloodz and Crips like writing a paper about Muslims and Jews? Kinda old hat... I would narrow it down between 2 sets, but thats just me.

2pac - Kinda Blood
Had a cousin who was a Blood... he'z dead tho
The Crip Founder Tokie wrote MANY books and articles about gang life and the poverty and society that surroundz it while he waz on Death Row. I don't know if he really tackled so much about the war between the bloods and crips tho. I think he waz in prison by the time the Bloods got founded.
Look him up, and your golden...
Theze links will get you started in the right direction.
