URBAN AMERICAN GANGSTERS: What Can We Learn From Them?
Usually when you hear of a “GANG” in America there is a picture of disgust and remembrance of violence and social destructions. In the most recent history, it’s the actions of African Americans engaging in urban self destruction. However, the reality is that in America, gangs started with European immigrants such as the Irish (Dean O’Banien of North-Chicago), Italian (Al Capone of South-Chicago) and Polish (Bugsy Seigal of New York). Arguably, the behaviors of the founders of black gangs were heavily influenced by the examples of European gangsters beginning in early 1900.
