Gangsters and racism

The Los Angeles Times has an interesting article on Latino gang racism against Black families in Compton, a suburb of that city.  It used to be majority Black, but is now majority Latino as the latter racial group takes over, both demographically and - from the sound of things - criminally.  Here's an excerpt.

Federal authorities have alleged in several indictments in the last decade that the Mexican Mafia prison gang has ordered street gangs under its control to attack African Americans. Leaders of the Azusa 13 gang were sentenced to lengthy prison terms earlier this month for leading a policy of attacking African American residents and expelling them from the town.

Similar attacks have taken place in Harbor Gateway, Highland Park, Pacoima, San Bernardino, Canoga Park and Wilmington, among other places. In the Compton case, sheriff's officials say the gang appears to have been acting on its own initiative.

. . .

"This gang has always made it clear they have a racial hatred for black people," said Westin, who has worked in the area for more than two decades. "They justify in their own sick minds because of their rivalry with the Compton black gangs. They repeatedly used racial epithets, they use racial hatred graffiti and they tag up the black church a lot."

There's more at the link.

I've seen this in other cities too, and in prison gangs, where racial tensions can become extreme, even murderous.  The situation is made worse by drug money from Mexico, where the cartels are looking to use local Latino gangs as couriers and distributors of their product.  In order to 'corner the market' for themselves, some gangs are attacking others, seeking to dominate a suburb or town or city.  It's going to get worse, I fear, because the so-called 'War On Drugs' is one of this country's more spectacular failures.

I wonder how long it will be until the media starts blaming straight white guys like me for this situation?

They already have, The Great and Powerful Oz.

From the Liberal Hysterical-Historical Library:

White slave traders forced the black, Africans into involuntary servitude and the plantation owners raped the inocent black women.

White Conquistadors enslaved the Central American indians and raped their benign women.

Thus, in both cases the evil, malevolent white genes were injected into both groups causing them to be violent, remorseless beasts.

The same thing is happening in Chicago, but it's being swept under the rug... Lot of illegals are heading out of the SW for Chicago since it's "safer" for them.

This has been going on for years in LA.

Both Harbor Gateway and Wilmington have changed drastically since we visited last year. HG, which is not Torrance, even though that is their mailing address, is LA City, and slowly from '61 to '72 moved out whites to be replaced by AAs. Illegal Mexicans have always been in there, now are the majority.
Wilmington, because of it's location, has predominantly been Mexican since I can remember.
I'm surprised Carson is not on this list, but that could be because it got a Casino around '94/95.
There is going to be a doozie of a turf war one day, which will include Carson, Bellflower, Artesia and parts of LB. The cartels are alive and well in CA.
The ferocity is displayed even in Central Jail, where prisoners have to be separated and segregated according not only by color, but also gang affiliations.
