Tony I found this article interesting because Ive lived and worked in the Heights most of my life and have never seen a group of cholos. Though I applaud their patriotism I am concerned about the signs and the face masks, yet you say they are not gang members? Surely its not what they are portraying, and their skepticism about you being a police office, was that just for immigration issues or they are hiding something?
look lil gurl just because they MEXICAN dont have to do anything with immigration. AND what if there was something else they was hidding?
Wow! They go hard!!! They are full-on Cali Cholos. I know there is a large Mexican population around these parts but I’ve never seen them represent like that before!
@Angy, the gang signs just go with the outfits. A part of Cholo lifestyle they were emulating. Asking if I was a cop is a question that I would’ve asked myself. Most teenagers and adults from the inner city are weary of cops anyway. I’ve had run in with cops in the past solely based on the color of my skin and being in my own neighborhood. Everything is not always what one perceives or assume. I stopped cause the beauty in what they where doing and how they where expressing themselves. Thank you for you comment, I appreciate it.

Of course their in a gang. The Surenos is a gang that originated in Southern California. The color is of course blue and the sign is 13. Note the picture of the guys holding hands on the lowrider bikes.

haha str8 wannabe serio its make me laugh my grandpa was an OG from whitefence gang… now days since theres internet GENTE LIKE THIZ claim to be surenos or homies fuck NETBANGERS PAISAI ONLY POSSIN FOT HA CAMERA TO TELL THERE LIL BADASSS
A group of people gathering with the same likes, thoughts and believes are a gang.
What about the big gang of the group of vilderberg who control this world. The gang of people who owns big corporates that polutes your water, and nukes your food.
And they where suits, almost all same color “dark blue and black”. They do the same signs, gestures and handshakes. They pimp their fancy cars. They make alliances with other gangs like”politics” They have a number too “like the 13″ I think theyr called the group of a hundred”
Its all relative.
Now, most of you missed the true escence of this article.
TONY…I think was a great moment and intercultural exchange.
You showed respect when you spoke to them in Spanish.
