Crip-Walking Continues To Seem Silly And Unthreatening

A tipster wrote in with the theory that C-walking, or Crip walking, the popular gangland expression through dance intended to show your friends that you love them and intimidate your enemies (aww) was not much different from the popular form of middle-aged entertainment, Riverdance. True.

Just to put things into perspective, there was a time in this country when gangs were considered such a threat to the youth of America and the very fabric of our society that sitcoms had entire episodes dedicated to understanding them. Also, The Warriors. Now they’re almost quaint. Gangs. Except for MS-13, that shit is the stuff of nightmares.
