the jewish community in crown heights is pretty stable. the jews there aren't crazy.

Based on my experiences with Albanians I'd have to say that they probably are being racist. When I lived in Boston I worked with a bunch of Albanians and they used to talk so much trash about people of other races and whenever something happened to them it was always discrimination "because they're Albanian"...nobody cares if you're Albanian, most people hear you talk and think you're Russian, so shut up with that!!

There's a decent amount of Albanians in Bedford Park, and I haven't noticed any tensions (but I'm not in high school). They seem very family oriented, and tend to keep to themselves. I see lots of Albanian women at the playground, but there's only one Albanian woman I speak to regularly, although the other women seem nice enough. They look after their children well (which unfortunately I can't say for everyone).

Don't kids in high school always seperate pretty much based on race/ethnicity? And therefore if you live in an even blue collar area or even regular middle class area this means fighting alongside your group?

Not to sound bad but kids fight in high school. Its just a sad fact. I didnt go to a bad/ghetto high school at all graduated 05, but it had over 3,000 kids. It was in Indianapolis so we only had blacks whites and mexican but it was 40 % black 50% white and 10% hispanic. We all got along in school but everytime there was a party or something we all got along for a while but when a fight started between and it was black vs white you would automatically side next to "your" group.

As recently as 1996 I think, there was a full blown race riot at the same school. Although I have to be honest I see it getting alot better in my area now. And the fights were definatley between the more ghetto/white trash kids in school. The good kids minded their business.

and also hear in brooklyn a lot of albanian girls date black and latino men, but when it comes marriage they better find a Albanian man quick.
Italians and Irish don't dress like that? i'm 100% irish, born, raised and live in washington heights and i dressed like that when i was younger, blue yankee fitted, celtic cross chain, baggy jeans, air force ones, matching shirts. i don't consider dressing black and i would never say that, i say dressing nice or 'fresh' not black. like BronxCambo said its more of city thing. did you ever see how guidos dress btw?
I also got a few tattoos that I DEEPLY regret getting...but u cant take tattoos away lol =P

I've heard this about Serbs too, but keep in mind that a Bosnian(which we have quite a few in this part of the state) told me this.

Also did anyone hear of this gang? The Irish Hoods? I found details on them:

A vicious Irish-american gang based in NYC, mainly in the Bronx and Upper Manhattan, also founds in areas of Brooklyn, Queens and Yonkers, NY. Some suggest they are an off-shoot of the violent Westies gang, and sometimes are called the 'Lil Westies'. They are usually seen wearing dark green and many members have tattoos of the Shamrock, Celtic Cross, or sayings in Gaelic . They're main rivals are Most Black gangs, and The Trinitarios and they are allied with numerous Mexican, Italian and Albanian gangs throughout the Bronx. They do roll deep, usually 10 or more, and they also attack on random with their signature 'Stomping out' and they also attack with baseball bats and switch-blades, most members also carry 9 millies. they are a primarily young gang with many members still in High School. There are an estimated 500something Irish Hood members in the NY area, they are known as one of the most unpredictable, violent gangs around and they're heavy in the Woodlawn, Bedford Park, Bainbridge, Van Cortlandt, Riverdale, and parts of Pelham Pkwy areas of the Bronx, Yonkers and Northern Manhattan.

They were established in the 1980s as a "Bronx version" of the Westies. They only had 70 members until the 90s then more and more started joining rapidly during the 90s and early 2000k. Most members are Irish-American with a small Italian minority. There are over 500 Irish Hoods in the bronx, manhattan, yonkers and queens. They were started to protect their 'blocks' now they sell drugs, commit murder, jump people, offer protection for money, sell fire-arms and i read that 5 members of IH were arrested a few weeks ago for viciously gang-raping a rival Trinitario gang members MOTHER and slicing her throat in an attempt to scare the trinitarios. They aren't one of those 'good guy' gangs, they are animals just like any other gang member. the days of the Fordham Baldies are long gone I could see. Raping someones mother...despicable. they should be sentenced to life in prison. dirtbags.

Yup, I remember when that whole beef started. It was over green they both wear green and they started a brutal war over it. Irish Hoods probably have more weight in the North Bronx but in the rest of the Bronx they dont have nothing compared to the Trinitarios. I heard about the Irish Hoods, they are some bad dudes, I heard theyre affiliated with MS-13. But theyve been going at with Trinitarios for a long time and Trinitarios have over 1000 members in just NYC, Irish Hoods have 500. Both of them are animals, I know for a fact, I was jumped by the Trinis before they are all sick thugs with no regard for life and belong locked up with the key thrown away. My friend used to live in Bainbridge a big Irish Hood location he said when he went down a certain block he got the worst stares ever and he was Rican, he said one night he got off the train 2 Irish Hoods with masks attacked him and stomped him out and even after he gave them his wallet, and he said he would give them anything just let him go, he has a daughter and one of these punks still pulled out a blade and was going to stab him, he was so lucky that a cop came down the street, they jetted out of there. but not without bruising his lung, breaking his nose and smashing his head on the pavement. he had to be hospitalized. all of these dudes of animals and need to put be in jail. by the way heres the Trinitarios Gangland special on the History channel, it shows just how brutal they are and what we're dealing with.
