Dangerous, growing, yet unnoticed: the rise of America’s white gangs | Society | The Guardian

Great article. What it leaves out is that the founder of the Gangster Disciples is from Mississippi. In that sense, it is a home grown gang. This is life for a lot of poor white people. It isn’t a phenomenon relegated to Mississippi. I knew some of these fellas in Georgia.

“And still I see no changes, can’t a brother get a little peace?
There’s war in the streets and war in the Middle East
Instead of war on poverty, they got a war on drugs
So the police can bother me” — Tupac Shakur
