How many white gangs are in America today?

Asked by xxporkxsodaxx (1386 points ) July 4th, 2008

I was watching Gangland and it got me thinking, every gang I see is minorities only, what gangs are out there today that are of Caucasian descent?

Skinheads. I went to junior high in Redlands CA and the majority of the gangs were SHARPS. There is a huge nugget of truth in the movie American History X. The SHARPS didn’t like the skinheads that went out beating up minorities. But both kinds were very prominent.

The skinhead movement is still really strong in certain parts of the country. And I would consider them gangs.

I can’t believe that I missed that, I sort of feel dumb now.

The KKK isn’t a “gang” they are an organization.

There were at least 30,000 gangs and 800,000 gang members active across the USA in 2007, up from 731,500 in 2002 and 750,000 in 2004. By 1999, Hispanics accounted for 47% of all gang members, Blacks 31%, Whites 13%, and Asians 6%.

sorry, i know thats not what you were asking about but i was reading that info on wikipedia earlier and so i thought id post it for you anyways, just incase anyone was curious…......
its hard to make a list of the white gangs in america, since there are probably several that i have never heard of but just off the top of my head :
Nazi Low Riders- aka NLR
Aryan Brotherhood – aka AB
Peckerwoods – aka Woods
Public Enemy No. 1 -aka PENI

just a side note, im pretty sure the kkk is actually known as a society.

In Reno Nevada straightedge is considered a gang by the Reno Police Dept. This happened because some straightedge kids kept beating down drunk kids. The cops take pictures of kids with straightedge tats like the XXX and other stuff and start files of all the straightedge kids they encounter for the gang unit.

Nazi, sharps, straightedge kids are all a bunch of morons.
White gangs exist mostly on the coasts if you exclude crap like race haters. Let’s not forget the Hells Angels! Just because you organize and make people pay dues so you can call yourself an organization or society does not make you either or except for on paper. Black flag is an all white punk gang that rides rails across America.
The Christian Evolution is white, m13 is mostly mexicans but there are a ton of white kids as well. Da Folks is a large white gang.

There are a lot of white gangs. In addition to the ones already mentioned, there are also a lot of biker gangs like Hells Angels, who are allies with the Aryan Brotherhood. Also there is the Italian mob, Russian mob, and many other organized crime gangs.
