The Rosados are a Hispanic street gang started in Los Angeles, California in the 1960's. Their founder is Rosario Rodriguez Rosado. They wear the colors pink & black to show their gang affiliation. They wear pink because Rosado is not only the last name of their founder, but also Spanish for pink. They wear black because the black represents the oppression and the depression the gang has suffered. The gangs symbol is the pink panther cartoon character. Their main rivals are other Hispanic street gangs, such as La Gran Mafia, and La Familia. They also war with several other street gangs such as the Bloods, Pirus, Brims, Crips, Hoover Criminals, Black Mafia Family, Tiny Rascals Gang, Oriental Outlaws Gang, Polynesian Warriors Nation, and the Arabian Posse Nation, just to name a few.
