Is it weird that I want a cologne that smells like it so I can have those memories flood back all the time?
Not sure how true this is, but if it is that is really interesting.
Not OP but gangs (and, by extension, hate groups, which tend to function as gangs) often provide forms of social service to relevant communities. This is one of the ways they can gain new membership, and why some communities tend to idolize or sympathize with them. Moreover, it's a reason many gangs are founded in the first place. When you've got nobody else looking out for you, they're there to protect you, to provide for you, to give charity in a crisis or to give safety in a warzone.
The bloods formed to protect people when the Crips were beating and killing folk. The Crips were formed like a club to help Black kids in poverty who were banned from groups like the Boy Scouts because of their race, like a social club but also a sort of welfare network of its own. The Yakuza were some of the first responders to the tsunami, while the mafia offered alternative economic growth and social status to disadvantaged Italians. Hell, in some places, the mafia runs basic services like trash pickup.
Organised crime and gangs in general are a sort of social net, so the KKK would be too by extension I suppose.
