How serious should the use of gang vernacular be taken?
Jamiel Shaw had two myspace pages, and the following quote was taken from his older page from 2007. Unlike his current page, it was not set to “private” so anyone can access the page. Below is a partial screen capture of this page which has a quote in the “who I’d like to meet” section. Accessed: May 11, 2008 The quote above: “II’D LIKE 2 MEET OTHER B-DOGS SOME FREAKY GIRLS BECAUSE U GOT 2 BE A VERY FREAKY 2 TALK 2 ME. SOME crabs SO I CAN BEAT THOSE c-monstas. BUT MAINLY OTHER GIRLS. aND 2 TALK 2 MY FREAKS” http://www.myspace.com/lilckaboom Translation: – “B-Dogs” mean Blood member. – “”crabs” is a derogatory term for Crips – Also the name he choose for his URL is “lil cka boom” were the “ck” means Crip killer.
