HOW THE LOST OF REVOLUTIONARY TEMPEST LEAD TO GANGBANGIN’!

By the early 1970s the assassination of revolutionary Black male political leaders in LA and abroad had created a climate of loss and chaos that was ripe for the growth of the gang element due to feelings of disempowerment that grew from a lack of Black resistance. Suddenly, this spirit of resistance, which had been grounded in an oppositional belief that white power was limited, that it could be challenged and transformed, had dissipated. Without the revolutionary zeal of “Black Power” the Black youth in LA were defenseless in face of their oppressors. Many already harbored feelings of being abandoned by the Black Nationalist organizations. And US organization leader Maulana Karenga had been slandered as a FBI informant. Thus, this organization did not appeal to the LA youth.  Divested of affect, alienated from these organizations the sense of powerlessness caused by the absence of a revolutionary tempest would give way to the gang element. Tookie would write of the matter:  

The Crips was a vehicle to provide us with illusionary empowerment, payback, camaraderie, protection, thuggery, and a host of other benefits. We wanted to be exempt from being disenfranchised, dyseducated, disempowered, and destitute…We were seventeen-year-olds with minds polluted by misconceptions, and we wanted to be emancipated from the struggle against the conditions seeking our extinction or emasculation. But regardless of hostile opposition or lack of social privilege, my vested interest, like everyone else’s, was simply to survive…

This can be said to have been the case in the Bay Area and elsewhere throughout the nation where Black Nationalism would eventually loose its zeal. However, it would be the Big Four, the Vice Lords, Black Disciples, etc., instead of the Crips and Bloods that would appeal to the ghetto youth….
