Crips and Bloods: Made in America Reviews
Overall, this all began even before the founding of the gangs, going back to the migration of black families from the deep south. They found a living situation that was better than the one they left of course but also one where where their children would face police brutality which would eventually lead to the Watts Riot.(The documentary with some nostalgia refers to this as an uprising.) That would prove no matter how much violent resistance there is, the resulting crackdown will be that much worse.
At the same time, "Crips and Bloods: Made in America" relies on too much background, even rewinding back to the beginning at one late point. Also, the documentary quotes the cliche of the lack of a male role model, when it fails to take in consideration the extremely high unemployment rate amongst young black men which Bernie Sanders has just stated is around 50%.
interesting documentation, some of the history is explained
