White criminals tend to be in cliques or drug crews and not gangs anyway.

Gangs have colors, a hierarchy, strict rules they follow, written rules, secret languages, and signs.

White criminals stay under the radar more cause usually there "homies" only run 20 or so deep and consist of groups of friends who grew up together or went to school together. They don't have a hierarchy, rules, colors, a language, or signs. They merely commit crimes, scheme, and chill together.

Think of friends, but there bound together by there lust to make money thru illegal enterprise. Many white criminals have legit jobs too on the side. They also don't have turf, just general areas thats not gang turf. where they commit there crimes and sell there drugs at because thats where they can make money at without having to deal with vicious large gangs.

Many are affiliated and have friends, customers, and connects in real gangs though. That's just part of the criminal sub-culture. If your serious about committing crime you probably know and associate with real gang members on a business level.

They also stay under the radar because they don't tend to "floss" and aren't making millions like all big gangs, there also much less violent. than gangs or even minorities crews because they don't need to be, and being feared isn't as important in there sub-culture or environment. Alot of them also dress and talk like typical "preppy whiteboys".

Theirs alot of black neighborhood cliques and crews but they get classified as gangs because they don't travel as much as white cliques and crews, have colors, signs, claim a hood, and in general emulate the large gangs. They are also more violent because they want to establish fear in rivals because they hustle in harder environments, or feel like they have something to prove.

With this being said there are whites in black gangs like bloods and crips and they are not as uncommon as you think, just like there are whites in the hood and they are not as uncommon as you think.

Maybe you can get away with saying "few" but "very few" is wrong. A significant number of Kings and Counts are white. Maybe it's a small number but it's visible and significant if you come to the right neighborhoods or go to the right high schools. Bloom Trail High School, for instance.
