White Gangbangers in Argentina

Original link not working, but this photo album is similar. The text refers to the original link.

Click on the photo album to see more of these idiots acting all tough and throwing gang signs. They are from Cordoba, Argentina, which is in the center of Argentina. Known from growing wine grapes, relatively dry climate in the rain shadow of the Andes. These folks look like Whites, which seemed strange to me. An Argentine friend of mine told me that they were typical Argentine mestizos. If that is so, then your Argentine mestizo looks awfully damned White.

I knew that Hispanic-Black US gang culture was spreading to other areas, particularly mestizo and Indian populations in Latin America and I believe Black and mulatto populations in the Caribbean. I have also seen pics of Filipinos and Negritos in the Philippines who have adopted US gang culture. There are some Australian Aborigines and Polynesians who have adopted it too. The Polynesians like to imitate US Black culture, possibly because they feel closer to Blacks. In gang fights at LA schools, the Samoans would always line up with the Blacks.

If you have any information on other regions where US gang culture is spreading, please let us know in the comments. I guess this is one of the only products we are exporting anymore.

    I think Tulio linked to some rappers from Poznan, Poland quite a while ago.

    Apparently there’s a thriving hip hop scene there, though this old article from the NY Times says the lyrics are not as bling-oriented as that of US rappers:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2002/04/05/world/poznan-journal-polish-hip-hop-rocks-the-homies-on-the-blok.html?src=pm

    While Polish hip-hop’s anger may echo that of urban African-American youths, the lyrics barely touch on familiar American themes of police violence or racism (Poland is virtually all-white). Fancy cars, guns and gold chains are not part of the picture — given the relatively small potential market in this country of 39 million, and the relative poverty of most fans, riches are out of the question.

    Instead, hip-hop here celebrates the grimness of life in the bloki. Occasionally, the songs stray into political territory, bemoaning widespread corruption or efforts to join the European Union, a step that many in the Bloki believe will drive up prices more and drive away jobs.

    Rhymers like Peja say they don’t want to get rich fast, or even get out of the bloki, clinging instead to the life they know and casting themselves in the tradition of Poland’s most famous 19th-century poet, Adam Mickiewicz, and the ”Mloda Polska,” or Young Poland movement that defined the country’s national image in the decades before Poland won freedom in 1918.

    ”If Mickiewicz was alive today, he’d be a good rhymer,” Doniu said.

    What and Asian gangsters rapping in French(?), English and Chinese(??)

    Cordoba it’s in the center of Argentina, not the west.

    Is it possible that “conquistadores” people were more agressive (natural selection) that the average of the spanish of that time ? It would maybe explain the high rate of crimality there…

    Maybe you don’t understand that here the social construction is much more about social status than it is the race. Obviously Amerindian phenotypes are associated with low social status, while white phenotypes are associated with high social status, but is not a rule.

    • “Obviously Amerindian phenotypes are associated with low social status, while white phenotypes are associated with high social status, but is not a rule.”

      That’s probably why studies on the subject use the term “correlation” in some fashion.

  6. Tulio

    Robert, think you need to check that link again, lol.

  7. jorge

    The link is down, but I think that I know what he refers.

    Probably the pictures were like these.

    All pictures here: http://imgur.com/a/TlTj5

    I put mainly pictures of whites because the title of the post was about this.

    This type of things affect young people from working class and especially underclass (eventually some middle class young), no matter if they are “pure” whites, very mixed whites, very mixed Amerindians or “pure” Amerindians.

    In fact, most part of “pure” Amerindians are those who live in indigenous communities, that are relatively isolated and quiet comparing to slums (including shanty towns, that are the poorest slums) in mid-sized and big cities. Equally, also there are some “pure” ones in towns and cities.

    Here no one will refer with some term equivalent to “whigger” to a white that act “ghetto” (like you say), here no matter race for this things. In all case, sometimes people mock when middle or upper class young try to seem tough.

    • Well the problem with your argument, like others, is that it is a strawman.

      By the HBD logic, it’s not that such behavior can ONLY exist in one race, rather it has different prevalence ratios within races.

      “In fact, most part of “pure” Amerindians are those who live in indigenous communities, that are relatively isolated and quiet comparing to slums (including shanty towns, that are the poorest slums) in mid-sized and big cities. Equally, also there are some “pure” ones in towns and cities.”

      Going by this anecdote alone, this is observed with many blacks in the rural south but it is still higher in regards to murder than whites.

        My argument is that here no matter the race for this things, is not rare seem white “ghetto” people like in your country. Because, in the post, he said like if was incredible and thinked that this things only affect Amerindians and blacks in Latin America, and this whites were some kind of “wiggers”, but not in Argentina.

          Technically the term “wigger” often refers to whites who didn’t have to be particularly mixed who imitate the ghetto culture, which is possible. This is mainly with lowerclass / middleclass whites to my knowledge.

          It is just a role that many lowerclass whites often fill.

    Mixed with white, but not white. Real white gangsters are in Eastern Europe.

    • jorge

      How not white? Many are basically whites, no matter if also have ancestry from another race. And persons of pictures are not gangsters, usually are lonely thieves. Gangsters don’t take pictures so freely and put it stupidly on internet.

  9. S.D.

    These people are clearly Mestizos and from the lower-classes, for the most part..

    Argentina’s racial structure is clear from a single picture: poorer people in slums are more likely to be Mestizos.

    A few of these so-called whites look pure Indian and most appear to be at least 25%.Amerindian.

    One can clearly see from the decaying surroundings that these are not Italian/German middle-class or upper-class Buenos Aries kids.

    One or two of them look pure Amerindian and the rest appear to be thoroughly Mestizo.

    • jorge

      I can put tons of pictures like this from whites, because here the thing it’s about social class, not race! Obviously there is a tendency of whites being in better conditions than Amerindians, but is not a rule.

      There are many whites in the working class and underclass, and many “pure”. And there are Amerindians in middle class and even some in upper class, but in this cases almost all are very mixed.

  10. S.D.

    Latin America in a nutshell: Mestizos living on the table scraps of whites, barefoot and pregnant.

    These are Mestizos from the slums, not Buenos Aries Cambrian Italians or Catalan Spanish.

    One or two are unmixed pure Amerindians.

    Most “white wannabes” in the United States or UK are in their 30’s and 40’s like Eminem and Ali G with a few grey hairs in their short bleached buzz-cut and a bit of belly bulging through their sleeveless muscle shirts.

    The 20 year old who was a “wannabe” in 1996 is now a bearded Hipster 2016.

    It’s yesterday’s fad of the 1990’s and 2000’s.

  12. S.D.

    White wannabes are going the way of the 80’s “butt-rockers” before them in the middle-class and upper-class of white American.

    Middle-class and upper middle-class white Americans who were wannabes in 1996 in their tracksuits are bearded hipsters in 2016 that look like Charles Manson in a pair of tight pants.

    Eminem and Ali G are getting on now and a few grey hairs are coming up in their bleach-blonde close-cropped hair (Both in their forties).

    It is a thing of the past for hipsters in their twenties or thirties today.

  13. S.D.

    In 1998 it was still possible for middle-class white sons of dentists to hang around Hispanic or African-Americans learning their slang or smoking “bud” with them.

    La Raza and Crips/Bloods today are far too politicized in their racial hatred of middle-class whites for such a cultural transmission to take place.

    An Eminem who hung around 8 mile today or Ali G would be beaten or killed the second he said “What’s cracking dawg”.

    Yesterday’s Wigger is today’s Hipster who wants to look like Charles Manson with a hillbilly beard in a pair of tight jeans.

    Today’s Wigger is now in his forties like Marshall Mather and has a few threads of grey running through his bleached hair.

    Wannabes are a bit like the nihilist head-banger whites of the eighties.

  14. S.D.

    Racial tensions between middle-class whites and La Raza or Black Crips is too high/politicized for the white children of middle-class dentists to hang around their areas “smokin’ bud” and “keepin’ it real”. Blacks are to politicized and ferociously anti-white for young hipsters to “keep it real” with them as they did in 1996.

    Patterns speak louder than words or opinions and young whites today have moved on from acting black to growing hillbilly beards and congregating around co-ops because black underclass settings are simply so dangerous and so racially politicized.

    Young whites are running for the cover of the loft and the beard.

    Marshall Mathers today would be killed in a minute on 8 MILE RD. instead of grudgingly tolerated because he bought some weed or 40 OZ for the homies.

    Racial tensions are too high these days to “keep it real” with the “homies” and middle-class whites who would “have been pretty fly for a white guy” twenty years ago are would be killed instantly in a black neighborhood.

    Black culture no longer has the allure to middle-class whites as the pathology becomes obvious.

    White sons of middle-class dentists have run for the cover of hillbilly Manson beards and co-op lofts because African-American and Mexicans have simply grown more hateful and violent towards whites since Eminiem was in vogue in the 1990’s and 2000’s.

    Hipsters want nothing to do with the black and Hispanic underclass.

    Wannabe’s have diminished to the core white-trash underclass. It’s simply no longer a middle-income fad for the children of white dentists to hang around minorities acting black.

  15. S.D.

    1996 Whites “chillin” out with rap music.

    2016 White hipsters wear hillbilly beards and avoid black areas like the plague.

    European and African tensions have fomented to the point where it simply unsafe for a white to hang around 8 Mile.

    Ice is more available in a trailer park than in the black projects as whites move on to other drug fashions while blacks continue to smoke crack or snort cocaine long after it has passed out of vogue..

  16. S.D.

    White wannabes are no longer middle-class whites. They have shrunken to a small portion of the white underclass. Middle-class whites are hipsters now.

    Hip young whites in America have no choice but to “act white” and avoid black ghetto or Mexican barrios-racial tension is simply to sever and politicized to “kick back” and “chill” with some homies like you did in 1996.

    Charles Manson hillbillies beards and tight pants are the trend.

  17. S.D.

    JORGE Mexican and Philippine Spanish families are mostly Andalusian.

    Pinochet and Che are among many South Americans whose families were Basque.

    I get the impression that Argentinian middle and upper-class families are Basque Spanish from the regions of Northern Spain.

    This is slightly in contrast with the Andalusian roots of Mexicans or Filipinos Mestizos.

  18. S.D.

    PHOTOGRAPHIC SURPRISED I did not realize SO MANY Mestizos or Indians lived in Argentina.

    Argentinians who come to America usually seem to have Italian or Basque families and none of these people resemble the Argentinians we see in the U.S.

    I am surprised HOW AMERINDIAN many Argentinian people are.

    Every country in the Americans has Amerindians and even in Canada they are often poor.

    But I did not realize entire towns or cities existed comprised of Amerindians in Argentina.

    • jorge

      Here are whites in the same way.

      This are working class/underclass thieves, but some are not thieves and simply try to look tough.

      Thievery here is a social problem, not racial. And mostly from big cities and, less, mid-sized cities.

    • jorge

      Well, obviously are more than many people think. Some think that here 90% or even 97% are white or mostly white. But not. At most, 80% are white/mostly white.

      This pictures for example are in a square of the downton of Resistencia (capital of Chaco province), a mid-sized city in the northeast of the country. In downtowns of any city always there are people from the whole city for obvious reasons (commercial movement, administrative transactions, banks, etc.), but who live there, at least here, usually are middle class people, especially in mid-sized cities. So, they are whiter than most part of the neighborhoods of cities, especially in the north of the country (poorest region of Argentina). In the pictures the people is watching some game of the Argentine national team during FIFA 2014 World Cup of football (soccer for you).

      This is in a square of the downtown of Buenos Aires (Amerindians are descendants of migrants from north of the country or of Bolivians, Peruvians, Paraguayans and Chileans). In Buenos Aires you can see many Amerindians in streets because immigration.

      This are working class/underclass people from different regions.

      This is people from the norhwest of the country (most Amerindian region of Argentina).

      This are Argentines descendants of Germans (in Crespo, a town in the Pampean region).

      And this are Amerindians that live in indigenous communities from different regions of the Argentine north.
