Anyone who does shit to give the Juggalos a bad name, IS NOT A JUGGALO THEMSELVES. THEY ARE FAKE.

I agree. Why would anyone want to commit a crime in the name of Juggalos. That makes no sense because then we all take heat for it, but more importantly ICP and everyone on Psychopathic Records gets blamed for it.

juggalos are a family not a gang and they're right when they say that anyone that commits a crime in the name of juggalos is not one themselves. I'm tired of people thinking that just becasue a group decides to not fit the biased stand point of "normal" they are written off as a threat to society. So you know what? if you think a juggalo is a gang member i offer you this advice: why don't you try learning something about them. because you'll be surprised about what they really stand for.

.. explain for those who don't associate with Juggalos what a Juggalo stands for & how you can justify the assertion that Juggalos, as a whole, are a family.

Rather than emblazoning your anti-disestablishment components, telling anyone who says or thinks different to fuck off & telling us to get educated, how 'bout you let us in on the Juggalo movement.

Alright, you wanna' know what a juggalo is. Simple as this, we listen to Psychopathic Records! We have love for our fellow Lo's and Lettes. And not all of us are into "hard drugs" or anything like that. In fact I was at the gathering this year and I didn't do a single drug or drink! And it is true, the juffalos do give us true los and lettes a bad name. But whatever, one persons explanation probably won't change your mind, so keep thinking what you want.

I've Been a Juggalo a long time...I hate to say it but we do have gang like qualities...I was talkin' to my lady and we looked at it like this...If you saw a fellow juggalo getting beat down by a juffalo or some other fool...would you jump in and help em out? whether you knew them or not...inevitably the answer is yes..That is a gang like attitude...As well...We always got love for one don't have to know another juggalo to be fam...We are Instant homies...thats how gangs handle themselves..thats why cops classify us as gangs..As well we Identify ourselves with symbols...A hatchet man necklace or ICP T-shirt or jersey...Thats how gang members Identify each other by tats and clothing styles!!! I ain't saying I like it.. but we are like a gang...we run in packs and we always support and back up fam wheter I personally know them or not...even so, if thats how it is..who cares..Down for life yo...MMFCL

I would have to disagree with both sides of this argument. While we have the tendency to carry ourselves as a gang the key difference is choice, "if ya aint with us then forget us". There are no initiation rites or getting "jumped in" you are free to walk away whenever. Of course the very essence of what we are makes it a lifestyle,or a unwritten code of values,a belief that we don't belong.There are people that think, act and do as we do that have never even heard of icp. All it is we found a calling to a society that accepts us as we are,we are a metaphorical family, because regardless of who you are your welcome. I work with people everyday that do not call themselves juggalos or even listen to icp that have the juggalo mindset,so bottom line is we are what we are there are juggalo nerds, gang bangers, junkies, thugs, scrubs, metal heads and even business owners.We are to diverse to be categorized by the word gang but we are way more than fans........Agree or Disagree hit me up

It insn't fair to label juggalos as a gang, what your doing i stripping of our identity, not to mention the pride we have as juggalos, we feel excepted, saying we're a gang is like bying a speaker system for your car when you don't have one, it doesn't make any sense, just stop labeling as a gang, some of us are really starting to get pissed off, what your doing is profiling, you can't judge us just by the music we listen to, or what we choose ware and act, just because some people decide to comits crime and call themselfs juggalos, when have the people don't even know what a juggalo is, even though they claim to be one, so stop discriminating us

I disagree with both sides of the argument as well. Juggalos are neither just fans or gangs, but misguided youths feeling beat down by society and they listen to two men rapping and paint their faces and chant as if they are a bunch of cultists. They say "MCL" all the time, usually following something severely grammatically incorrect. Example: "Ima juggalo fo lyfe, yo. MCL!!!!!!!!!!"

Just for you information, those who say they aren't like a gang, please stop calling your fellow fag..I meant juggalos "family." When you call people who you don't even know but who share a common style "family" it sounds like you are indeed a gang.

And I am not ignorant of juggalos and their lifestyle. I happen to like ICP a bit but you don't have to like ICP to be a true juggalo. A juggalo is really someone who is comfortable being themselves no matter what, and you punks have stolen the word and made it to be a fan of ICP. A big screw you to all the Juggalos/lettes. Go screw yourselves.

ok people look, My mom was the one that got me listening to ICP. I have been listening to it since I was 2 1/2 years old. I am now 17. Juggalos/Lettes are NOT a gang. We are Family. Just because we recognize eachother the same way that a gang would does NOT mean that we are a gang. When we are walkin down the road and we see someone that has a Hatchet man Charm, An ICP Jersey, a tattoo or anything then it helps us not feel so alone because that means that there are others like us out there.

Its the dumb f^ckin Juffaho's that give us real Juggalos/Lettes a bad name. Just because they think that they have to be hard and be like a gang they screw it up for the ones that have been down for awhile and know what its about. To understand most of the Juggalos/Lettes and what they get from ICP and theiur lyrics you have to actually sit down and listen to them!!!

Dont judge a book by its cover! Not all of us are bad and not all of us do stupid shit to look cool. Just because of the way that we talk and the way we recognize eachother doesnt mean that we are fuckin retarded. Some of us are actually very talented and very educated. The people that talk shit on us just dont want to give us the time to realize this!!


MMFWCL to ALL the homies across the world!!

#1. Not all Juggalos paint their faces up
#2. Stupid music? That's your opnion.
#3. "Get a real family." We all do have real families which we love very much. Family doesn't have to be related.
#4. "Get a real job" Not all Juggalos are bums. I for one have a very important, and high paying job. I've talked to other ninjas who are in the same boat as me.
