California whiteboys run their neighborhood first then go up to more hardcore gangs. Venice White Boys, SFV peckerwood, OC faggot.. whatever you start out in county and prison identified by your race and where your from. Then the AB, NL, FAIM types recruit from there or you can just bang your neighborhood. For example "street rules" you supposedly can't tattoo SFV on your belly if you haven't done dirt for it in prison even though everyone from that area is identified as SFV (San Fernando Valley)
yeah, I've seen a few videos from white guys around the country who have done time in prison. most of them don't agree with the racism in the California prison system, but almost all of them wish the whites in their state prisons had the same unity/gang structure of California's.
As the saying goes, "in here, you're the nigga". The structure was put in place a long time ago for strength in numbers. Along the way it became all about dope. Now I hear the PC yards are packed with people who are just sick of the bullshit.
