4 Los Angeles Latino Gang Members Convicted of Anti-Black Conspiracy
The jury finds that the defendants terrorized African Americans to try to drive them from the Highland Park neighborhood.
By Joe Mozingo
Times Staff Writer

August 2, 2006

Four members of a Latino gang in Highland Park were found guilty Tuesday of unleashing a barrage of assaults and killings to push African Americans out of the predominantly Latino community in northeast Los Angeles.

The verdicts in a downtown federal courtroom marked the first time a street gang had been convicted of breaking federal hate crime laws, traditionally employed against white supremacist groups like skinheads and the Ku Klux Klan.

"I'm glad the truth is out," said Luisa Prudhomme, whose 21-year-old son, Anthony, was killed when Avenues members allegedly kicked open his door and shot him in the head as he lay on a futon.

"This wasn't just regular gang activity as usual," she said. "This was hate crime. They promoted hatred and racism and ignorance."

Members of a violent Hispanic street gang killed at least three people in south Nashville, shot several more and met often to plan more attacks on rival gangs, according to a federal indictment announced Wednesday.

Thirteen members of the MS-13 gang could face life sentences for the crimes, including a shooting at a Gallatin Pike nightclub and the gunning down of two teenagers on Nolensville Road.

Craig Morford, U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee, said the gang members also collected dues to support fellow gang members jailed throughout the United States and Latin America, said.

A monthslong investigation found that members of the small Nashville chapter of the MS-13, many of them in the country illegally, don't seem to be involved in drugs or criminal acts beyond violence, Morford said.

But while the Latino gangs' racial terror campaign is not new, gang experts and law enforcement authorities say the intensity and frequency of anti-black terrorism is now escalating, as the amount of turf in Los Angeles claimed by Latino gangs continues to increase rapidly. And, as more and more blacks leave inner-city L.A. for safer neighborhoods, those who remain are more vulnerable.

"I don't see much history left for blacks in Los Angeles," says LAPD probation officer James Lewis, who is himself black and deals specifically with Latino gang members in northeast Los Angeles, including the Avenues. "It plays out not just with the gang members, but also the way things are going [for blacks] throughout Los Angeles."

There’s no physical sign, barrier, or even a chalk line that marks the zone where a Black can’t enter at the risk of grave harm.

But the zone is there, and Blacks know that if they enter it they can be beaten, shot at, or killed. The twist is that the forbidden zone is not in a redneck, backwoods, and Deep South town during the rigid and violent Jim Crow segregation era. The bigger twist is that the Klan, Neo-Nazis, racist skinheads, and bikers didn’t establish the racially restrictive zone. Purported Latino gang members established it. The forbidden zone is in a small, mixed ethnic bedroom community in Los Angeles. The year is 2007, not 1947.

A Black family that recently fled the community in fear for their lives bluntly told a reporter that they left because Blacks there are scared to death. In the past year, the hate terror escalated to the point where Blacks tell tormenting tales of being harried when they leave their homes, or their children walk to school. They say that they are forbidden to go into a park, and a convenience store.

This is not a bad case of racial paranoia run amok. Blacks have been taunted, harassed, beaten and shot at in this community. But the tragic murder of a 14-year-old Black girl and the wounding of two other young Blacks in the forbidden zone sparked anguish, rage, and finally drew some local media attention.

The murder drew gasps of disbelief that in America in 2007 in a big, Northern cosmopolitan city, with a Latino mayor, and that routinely back pats itself for its ethnic diversity, there is an entire area that Blacks are banned from on threat of injury or death at the hands of other non-whites, and city officials refuse to do anything about it.

Here's the problem with this:

No one has documented an increase in "hate killing" anywhere.

I believe that the only increase in Latino on Black "hate killings" has taken place in the very active imaginations of white racists.

The Hutchinson Report: Thanks to Latino Gangs, There’s a Zone in L.A. Where Blacks Risk Death if They Enter

Another Excerpt from Black America Web

Latino on black (and black on Latino) violence is hardly an aberration in Los Angeles and other places.

According to police reports, there have been more than a dozen murder attempts in other parts of Los Angeles by alleged Latino gang members on mostly young blacks that have NO KNOWN GANG INVOLVEMENT in the latter part of 2006.

Pledging to be a mayor who represents all of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa handily defeated incumbent Jim Hahn Tuesday to become the first Latino mayor of the city since 1872.

He hopes to minimize Brown on Black violence

More from the Black American Web

http://www.blackamericaweb.com/site.aspx/sayi...

If you’ve been reading certain news reports for the past two weeks, you’ll know this particular race war is going on in California. And it involves, in the words of Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca,“daily ‘brown on black’ violence,” according to a recent article in The Washington Post.

Yes, the so-called Third World unity, where “people of color” are supposed to have some kind of solidarity simply because they aren’t white, is officially dead.

.... Last year, Clarence Thomas voted with a minority of two other justices who said that California could indeed segregate inmates by race for security reasons.

(Because of repeated incidents of Latinos beating and or killing Black inmates)

Are L.A. Freeway Shootings Racially Motivated?

LOS ANGELES — As an 18-year-old black woman lies in critical condition from the latest freeway shooting, activist Najee Ali termed the spate of roadway violence racially motivated and called upon the FBI to investigate the attacks in the same manner that the agency probed the killings of blacks in the Jim Crow era of the South.

Ali called a news conference Monday after two weekend freeway shootings left a teenage El Monte woman hospitalized in Lynwood’s St. Francis Medical Center in critical condition. Police, who would not identify the woman, said she had been shot three times while riding in a Nissan Altima on the Foothill (210) Freeway near Irwindale at about 10 p.m. Saturday. Two others in the vehicle were unhurt.

In an earlier Saturday morning shooting, the right front window of a tow truck carrying an adult and a child was shot out as it drove south on the Ventura (101) Freeway near Camarillo, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department reported. No one was hurt in the tow truck shooting.

The victims of both shootings described their assailants as bald Latino men riding in dark-colored Hondas. Ali described the victims of both shootings as African Americans.

Playing politics with the lives of Black America.

Quoted from LATINI LISTA
http://latinalista.blogspot.com/2007/01/newsf...

LATINO MEMBERS OF THE 204th STREET GANG VOW TO STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST BLACKS

... IF THEY GET A NEW RECREATION CENTER

Newsflash: Latino Gangs Do Have Brains &#151; and Hope
In a previous posting, I spoke about the sad situation in a Los Angeles-area community where Latino on black crime and intimidation was so rampant that a 14-year-old black girl was gunned down by two Latino gang members simply because of the color of her skin.

Now comes word that a truce has been brokered with this gang and they're willing to live in peace if — they get a rec center!

Of course, that's not all but it strikes me as pretty sad, and testament to the fact, that those areas of the city that are considered primarily low-income and minority populated, are the ones that are routinely neglected by city officials.

Gang members of the 204th Street gang in Harbor Gateway sat down with the director of Project Islamic Hope, Najee Ali, and agreed to stop tormenting the black residents of the area if their demands were met

Per NPR's news this morning it was admitted that NONE of the Gang Leaders attended the city's TRUCE MEETING.(So I guess this Recreation Center you cited above was proposed by someone other than the gang leaders)

Gang violence in LA is up 44%, the majority of which are a result of Latino vrs. African American gangs.

Although Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has stated that they will put the gangs out of business, latino gang members are increasing told that they have to KILL SOMEONE (typically African American) to be accepted into the gang, as oppossed to the typical gang "Beat Down" that used to be their entrance fee into the gang.

Ethnic Cleansing in L.A.

By Brentin Mock
AlterNet

Anthony Prudhomme was slain by members of the Avenues, a Latino street gang. But he was not a rival gang member, or a police informant, or a drug dealer. The Avenues did not target him for the content of his character, or even the contents of his apartment.

They targeted him for the color of his skin.

Prudhomme was murdered because he identified himself as black (he was in fact mixed-race) in a neighborhood occupied by one of the many Latino street gangs in Los Angeles County. Incredibly, even though these gangs are fundamentally criminal enterprises interested mainly in money, gang experts inside and outside the government say that they are now engaged in a campaign of ‘ethnic cleansing’— racial terror that is directed solely at African Americans.

‘The way I hear these knuckleheads tell it, they don’t want their neighborhoods infested with blacks, as if it’s an infestation,’ says respected Los Angeles gang expert Tony Rafael, who interviewed several Latino street gang leaders for an upcoming book on the Mexican Mafia, the dominant Latino gang in Southern California.‘It’s pure racial animosity that manifests itself in a policy of a major criminal organization.’

Here's my problem with this:

Violent crime is down 10percent in LA last year and crime overall is down 15 percent.

Many more black people were dying in the 80s/90s in LA because of gang violence.

But when the alleged perpetrators are Hispanic, suddenly white people get very concerned about violence. I think this is hypocrisy and it smacks of racism.

YOU ARE USING THE CURRENT SITUATION TO FURTHER YOUR OWN RACIST GOALS--not to protect black lives for which you care very little.
