Either way, I agree with you. It is very sad.
Actually i live within shouting distance of an MS-13 hotspot in Alexandria and they on occasion make their presence known. Not to mention there is a lesser known latino gang that Alexandria has to deal with.

Actually: crossing out then your crew 'tagging' its grafitti is a challenge.

OTOH; covering up gang graffiti (especially by the authorities) tends to mess with many gangbanger's minds and quite frequently they give up.

Again, a small minority of graffiti is gang graffiti. Even in LA, its very unlikely for you to see gang graffiti unless you go into their neighborhoods.

We occasionally see that graffiti crap here even in my neighborhood------and, once the city receives a report, it is painted over immediately. Apparently; our taggers seem to get the message.......it is never put back up.

That Anglo Americans are doing a lot of graffiti when the stereotype is that its illegals?
Illegals doing graffiti makes me LMAO.

"Pedro, I'm really tired from building those houses. But I still feel like going out a spraypainting some walls."
"Si. I think we should make life worse for Americans. Lets go."


Its more like,

"hey, bradley! Lets go bombing, bro!"
"Yeah, dude, that would be totally DOPE!"
"Did your mom buy you the new 50 Cent album??"
"Fo shizzle!"
"Sweeeeet"



I would think even you would be amused by the indignation of some of the people on here reacting to that statement that something bad might be done by White people. I know I was.

I can say WHY I think a good part of it is middle class white kids/young adults.
I've met a lot of graffiti writers, I know a lot about the scene.


Can you say WHY you think its exclusively Latinos and illegals?
