USA - Gang Sign Culture in Los Angeles

A young boy shows off what he has learned from his elder brothers hanging out on the stoop of his family's apartment. The Grape Street Watts Crips are a mostly African American street gang based in the Jordan Downs housing project in Watts. Their main enemies are the Bounty Hunter Bloods who are based in the neighboring Nickerson Gardens neighborhood, although their rivalry has ebbed since the gang truce following the 1992 Los Angeles riots.
