I am from Wichita, KS a city with a population of 380,000 people a lot smaller then Los Angeles. I decided to post this in the LA forum because I feel like I will get more answers here then somewhere else. Anyways I have been reading some things on this website and other sites that describe Surenos as being racist and hating Black people. Well this is kind of a suprise to me because my Girlfriend is Mexican and her brother is a Sureno and I get along with him fine as well as his friends.I also work with two Hispanic guys who are Surenos as well and I get along with them also.I asked my girlfriend's boyfriend if it was true that alot of Surenos don't like Black people and he said that was not true.I told him about what I had read online and he said every place is different.So I was wondering if anyone who has dealt with Surenos could claify. IS it just a LA thing or do most Surenos dislike Black people?

It's mostly a business thing. Competition breeds discontent in the drugs trade.

Well, LA Surenos are the soldiers of a powerful prison gang who is allied with white supremacist gangs, so of course they're anti-black. LA Surenos are very much against black men and Latinas dating. But if you're in areas like the Westside, the Hollywood area, and Wilshire area, you'll be fine.

You...asked your girlfriend's boyfriend?

The second part of that sentence is easy (Surenos really don't like Black people), but the first part is the more vexing announcement.

Women often refer to their female friends as girlfriends.

I've noticed that the Latino community in LA is - in general - incredibly anti-Black. It's the strangest thing I've ever seen because most Latinos tend to stay to themselves which doesn't lead to there being a lot of negative interactions in the first place.

But then again, LA is fairly segregated, so it shouldn't surprise me that much.

It is, in large part, a prison thing that spills out to the community.

It saddens me. Chicago and NYC are very united compared to here.
