Crips

The Crips are one of the two largest Los Angeles, California youth gangs. The Crips, as opposed to the Bloods, are largely Hispanic. Due to the loose network of territorial gangs, there are significant differences between the various cliques[?]. The Crips are identified by the blue color worn by their members. While there have been bloody rivalries between the Crips and Bloods, a peace treaty[?] was recently negotiated, prompting a Nobel Peace Prize nomination. The gangs have branched out throughout the United States and even internationally.
