Have you ever found yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time? Maybe you turned down the wrong street, made eye contact with the wrong person, or wore the wrong color. In some parts of the world, wearing the wrong color can get you shot, robbed, or beaten by gang members.
In the United States, gangs often identify themselves by their clothing or “colors.” Some of the most notorious gangs include Bloods and Crips. The Bloods gang is known for wearing red, while the Crips gang is known for wearing blue. If you’re not careful, wearing the wrong color can make you a target for gang violence.
But what if you deliberately want to disrespect gang members? What if you want to make them see red? In this article, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about disrespecting Bloods and making them see red.
Why would you want to disrespect Bloods?
Before we get into the nitty-gritty of how to disrespect Bloods, let’s take a step back and ask why anyone would want to do that in the first place. There could be several reasons:
- You want to commit a crime – Maybe you’re planning on robbing a store or a house in a Bloods neighborhood, and you want to intimidate the locals.
- You want to prove a point – Maybe you’re sick of living in fear and want to stand up to the gang members who rule your neighborhood.
- You want to gain street cred – Maybe you’re a member of a rival gang, and you want to show your loyalty and toughness by disrespecting Bloods.
Whatever your reason, it’s important to understand the risks involved. Disrespecting gangs can be dangerous, and it could get you hurt or killed.
The basics of Blood disrespect
So, how exactly do you disrespect Bloods? Here are some basic do’s and don’ts:
Do wear blue
If you want to disrespect Bloods, wearing blue is a good start. Blue is the color of the Crips gang, which is one of the Bloods’ biggest rivals. By wearing blue, you’re sending a message that you’re not afraid of them and that you support their enemies.
Don’t wear red
Whatever you do, don’t wear red. Red is the color of the Bloods gang, and wearing it is a surefire way to get their attention. Even if you’re not a member of a rival gang, wearing red could make you a target for violence.
Do use hand signals
Gang members use hand signals to communicate with each other, and learning some of these signals could help you disrespect Bloods. For example:
- “C” – Holding up your index and middle fingers to form a “C” is a sign of disrespect to Bloods, as it represents the Crips gang.
- “BK” – Holding up your index and pinky fingers to form a “BK” (for “Blood Killer”) is another sign of disrespect to Bloods.
Don’t use gang signs
Be careful not to use actual gang signs, as this could be seen as a sign of disrespect or aggression. Using gang signs could also make you a target for violence from rival gang members.
Do talk trash
If you’re feeling brave, you can try trash-talking Bloods to their face. Be warned, though, that this could escalate quickly and could result in physical violence.
Don’t show fear
Whatever you do, don’t show fear. Gang members thrive on intimidation, and if they sense that you’re afraid, they’ll be more likely to target you.
Advanced Blood disrespect techniques
If you’re feeling really bold, you can try some of these advanced Blood disrespect techniques:
Wear blue rags
One way to really get under the Bloods’ skin is to wear blue rags. Rags are a type of bandana that gang members often wear to represent their colors. By wearing a blue rag, you’re essentially saying “I’m wearing your enemy’s colors, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
Wear red with a line through it
If you really want to push the envelope, you can try wearing a red shirt with a diagonal blue line through it. This represents “blue-lining” – crossing out the Bloods’ colors with a rival gang’s colors.
Spray paint over Blood graffiti
If you see a Bloods graffiti tag in your neighborhood, you can try spray-painting over it with blue paint. This is a bold move that could anger Bloods and draw their attention to you, so use caution.
Create a fake gang
If you’re feeling creative, you can invent a fake gang and wear their colors. This is a risky move, as it could be seen as a sign of disrespect by both Bloods and other gangs.
Disrespecting Bloods can be dangerous, and it’s important to understand the risks involved. If you do decide to disrespect Bloods, remember to use caution and be aware of your surroundings. The last thing you want is to get caught in the middle of gang violence.
In the end, the best way to stay safe is to avoid gang-related activities altogether. If you see suspicious activity in your neighborhood or feel like you’re in danger, don’t hesitate to call the police.
Stay safe, and remember – it’s never worth risking your life to show off or prove a point.
