      Black Guerilla Family

      The issue around Tookie recently, and tomorrow is the date.. It made me revisit all of my research I've done about prisons. But since Tookie was most likely part of the BGF in his early prison years. It creates some questions that are not related to him but the sociology within prisons.

      If you may or may not know, us Chicanos have our Norte(red) and Sur(blue) gangs, and in prison, they still are seperated by color, however with the Black Guerilla Family, they unite, regardless if on the street if they were bloods or crips.

      Why do you think this is? At first I thought it would be because the black population is not nearly as high as the Chicanos in California prisons, so maybe that is why the BGF is more tight-knit? Or is it simply that the Blacks have their shit together in there and have a higher regard for brotherhood in prisons?

      I've read Monster by a former crip from LA and i never remember him mentioned BGF. Also in the eastcoast Bloods and Crips was basically started because the latin kings were running shit. Maybe someone can fill us in.

      BGF says all gang afilliations are dropped and unite under one cause strength in numbers.And when it comes to the Chicano gangs in Califas they seperate by location meaning Northern and Southern or farmers versis the city boys.At one time the brothers stayed seperated by the red and the blue and they where being harassed from all sides. So a council was put together when an even amount of leaders from the Bloods and an equal amount of leaders from Crips and the BGF was in full affect. The BGF has been around since the early 70's. Comrade george Jackson has spoken of the BGF in one his books.

      he was messen with sum of them BGF kats tho... cuz da CCO-Consolidated Crips Organization.. he became part of didnt have no beef with the UBN United Bloods Nation...and they dealt wit BGF brothas up in there. da New Afrikans, BGF, CCO, UBN and Norte's was kool....da Surenos, WHite power groups and the "uncultured'' Crips were enemies.

      Bloods on eastcoast started round 93 in Rikers Island cuz alot bros was catchen hell from Netas n Kings. Bloods n Kings are more or less "kool" now though. United under the "5" People Nation,just bangen on Crips for most part out here. (SOME) da Bloods n a few Crip sets, from what I hear, kool wit da NewPanthers nowdays...

      That is interesting, I didnt know George Jackson wrote books, although most of the Black Panther leaders did write books. I only have some books by Mumia, Bobby and Huey, none of the rest.....but I'm broke right now ....so I just put Jackson's books on my wishlist, I'll buy them next time I get paid

      Can a mod move this thread to the appropiate forum please

      Feds arrest 23 in multistate drug, money-laundering ring

      So-called Black Mafia Family laundered $270 million over 15 years, feds say

      DETROIT -- Federal authorities say they have broken up a cocaine-trafficking ring that laundered more than $270 million over 15 years in an operation that began in Michigan and branched out across the country.

      The organization, known on the streets as the Black Mafia Family, had ties to the rap music industry, and its two leaders have appeared in rap videos, said Robert L. Corso, special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Agency in Detroit.

      "They were in fact just another group of thugs who brought fear, intimidation and violence to the streets of Detroit," he said.

      Local and federal authorities in Michigan, California, Florida, Kentucky, Texas, Georgia, Arkansas and Mississippi arrested 23 people Friday, and two suspects remained at large, authorities said.

      They face charges that include conspiracy, drug possession with intent to deliver and money laundering, according to a federal grand jury indictment unsealed Friday in Detroit.

      U.S. Attorney Stephen J. Murphy said local and federal authorities have been after the ring since 2000 and recently were able to pull several old cases together from many different states.

      Authorities said the gang dealt in "multi-kilogram" quantities of cocaine. Since 1999, authorities seized cocaine from the group in Polk County, Texas; Flagstaff, Ariz.; Kansas City, Mo.; Collin County, Texas; Crawford County, Ark.; Florissant, Mo.; St. Louis; and Woodland Hills, Calif.

      The gang bought more than $1 million worth of winning lottery tickets at inflated prices "in an effort to launder the cash through legitimate means," Murphy said. They would then use the winnings to purchase homes and vehicles, hiding the fact that the true source of the money was drug sales.

      Sandi Carter, assistant special agent in the Detroit office of the Internal Revenue Service, said the gang was able to find the winning Daily 4 lottery tickets through contacts in the Detroit area.

      According to the indictment, the gang was led by Terry L. Flenory, 35, of Los Angeles, and his brother, Demetrius E. Flenory, 45, of Atlanta.

      They started the ring in the Detroit area in the mid-1990s, and it spread to other states as it became more successful, authorities said. Members would use vehicles with hidden compartments to transport the cash from cocaine sales, authorities said.

      The gang also bought and leased luxury cars and real estate through false names to conceal the source of their money, the indictment said. Corso alleged that the gang leaders used their ties to rap musicians to find luxury car brokers.

      Authorities said they will seek forfeiture of 10 homes, 18 vehicles and $1.2 million that already have been confiscated. The homes are located in the Detroit and Los Angeles areas.

      Murphy said local and federal authorities had touched the edges of the organization for years but had not tied their work together until recently. Investigators were able to link old cases through telephones used by the Flenory brothers, he said.

      These guys aren't revolutionaries and don't have a socio-political theory that guides them. They're just dope dealers who tried to break into the music industry.

      Well i was claiming 93 Gangsta Blood for the longest, then when i was in the belly i met some Gods that had all the answers ---- BGF isnt a gang- its bigger than that, u got BGF members who are lawyers and doctors, its main purpose is protection of your black brothers (and sisters). Dont confuse BGF with BMF (the real black mafia) some people may be involved with both but they are two seperate entities

      I know...but I have heard rumors that they are related. But if the BGF are such revolutionaries...then why do they back sellouts such as 50 Cent? (G-G-G...)

      The BGF is a prison gang and it has little or no affiliation to street gangs. And the BGF was a west coast thang...
