5.0 out of 5 stars How is this title not available on Amazon????, February 24, 2011
This film is amazing...details a little known history between the FBI-initiated destruction of Black Liberation movements of 60s/70s with the illegal cointel pro program, and the role of economic and political policies under the neoliberal/conservative backlash in leading to the rise of the Bloods and Crips. Does an excellent job investigating the origins of gang life and the current realities of communities besieged by it in a way that dispels with racist mainstream myths that gang violence is a product of deviant/savage/inherently criminal Black and Brown youth. Tragic and enraging but an invaluable accomplishment in resisting the elision of experiences of marginalized communities of color and the silencing of the damning history out of which "gang culture" emerged. Just how damning that history is may help to explain why the title isn't available on Amazon...
