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?
