I have lived in and around L.A. for many years and when I first moved there I was worned about racist and skinhead gangs,however while I was down their I didnt notice any at all.I saw lots of black and mexican gangs but never had any real problem.I also saw alot more asian gangs than I expected.Anyways,If anyone knows of any white gangs I would love some info on them like where they are and if they are any real danger,just curious and would love some feedback.
Thank You

Nazi Low Riders are a white gang. They're all over So Cal but really heavy up in the Lancaster area.

The Armenian gangs are caucasian, bigtime rivals of the Maratrucha Salvadora (Latino) gangs in the San Fernando Valley.

The motorcycle "clubs" like the Mongols really don't affect ordinary citizens like the Latino gangs do.

White gangs are more concerned about their politcial power in the US, they don't really go out there and start shootin up blocks and such. If anything, they pretty much keep a low presence and try to blend in with society. As far as for crimes, they aren't as dangerous as the media says they are. Hispanic and Black gangs are far way more dangerous than White gangs so you might consider them with more caution. I live in South, Los Angeles so trust me, I know...

In the "I.E." in Southwest Riverside County there are a few skinhead gangs. It was much worse 10 years ago. In the City of Los Angeles, it's the Black and Mexican gangs that you need to look out for! Did you know a Mexican gang claims Hollywood Blvd. (On the Walk of Fame!) I almost learned the hardway from 15 Mexican gangsters....****** Idiots! Regardless...check adl.org or the jewish sites. They can give better information

There's really very few White gangs, compared to the others. White gangs are a "boogyman" invented by the liberals in Hollywood and the other media, trying to convey the notion that gangsterism cuts across all races and classes.

Default They are there

There are definately white gangs in Los Angeles, you have NLR, PEN1 and various other peckerwood gangs throughout LA, they dont have no where near the numbers that black and hispanic gangs have but they are definatley there.
Areas they tend to be in are Long Beach, Venice, SFV, SGV and all through the OC especially the beach areas. But you also have biker gangs like the Hells Angels, Mongols, Vagos as well in LA county, LA is no different to any other city in the world when it comes to gangs, NYC and even cities in Europe have streetgangs and organized crime, you can go to any corner of the world and cities have gangs, LA is no where near the worst city for gangs and is actually a very good place to live.

DC15, the statistics will prove you wrong about gangs. There are more gangs here quantitatively than anywhere else, and they are dangerous gangs as opposed to pimply little street urchin punks swarming the shantyslums around the world. Plus, this is the hub, the magnet for the worst of the worst. We now have the Russian, Armenian and Asian gangs thinking L.A. is the bee's knees as well as out homegrown Latino and African American gangs who operate with impunity by sheer numbers. Los Angeles thugs are the template for bad people everywhere. Other posters confirm this as well.
