Just watched Bloods and Crips: Made in America on Netflix. Damn, that shit made my heart hurt and it made me think and it made me see how the American made systems are put in place to keep black people down and how some of us are like ‘fuck that’ and we make our own.
If you check it out, make sure to pay close attention to the WWII era and the “Black Power” era of the late 1960s…you’ll see how the power structure doesnt want us to get out of the hood and make it. It was sickening but something that needed to be said, needed to be heard, and needed to be shown. Educate yourself, no matter your color, and watch this documentary.
