“Reason no.467 not to go anywhere near Bushwick.”
The Bloods are alive and well in NYC. Yes, those Bloods. Besides the obvious, red gear and and intricate handshakes, there are other symbols to look out for. It’s pretty easy to identify the Bloods’ markings from all the other scribblings on the street if you know what to look for. So next time you’re spending the day in Bushwick–shopping for plantains, bootleg DVDs, $700 apartments, or whatever–keep an eye out. Once you see the signs, make that rice and beans to go, quickly hop on the closest B38 bus and bolt before you get shot.
After the ROAR, become and expert in gang graffiti forensics.

One of the surefire signs that you are looking at the work of the Bloods is to look for the star, its always a central feature of their scrawls.
