The Crips are an independent African American street gang started in Los Angeles, California in the 1960's. The gangs founders are Stanley Tookie Williams & Raymond Lee Washington. There are several sets and subsets in the Crips street gang, and they're all known for wearing a blue bandana to the left side of their back pockets to show affiliation(some wear a secondary color to seperate theirselves from other Crip sets). The reason for the Crips wearing a blue bandana to the left side of their back pocket is because one of the Crips original members named Curtis Buddha Morrow used to wear a blue bandana to the back side of his left pocket as a fashion statement and when he died the Crips kept up the tradition in honor of him, they also wear blue because the color blue represents royalty.
