Harlem Residents Outraged by Sale of Major League Baseball Caps With Gang Colors
Official Major League Baseball caps blatantly featuring colors and symbols for some of America's deadliest street gangs are turning up on store shelves in Harlem, MyFOXNY.com reported Friday.
Outraged local activists charge that New Era, the caps' manufacturer, and the New York Yankees — whose famous interlocking NY cap features a choice of a red and black bandanna design for the Bloods, blue and gray for the Crips and a gold crown for the Latin Kings — and Major League Baseball are deliberately marketing to gang members and wannabes.

The citizens should collectively save the "outrage" for the ones who wear these, then display it openly and without reservation.

There are a ton of athletes that are affiliated with gangs. Not being racists or prejudice, but look at were a majority of todays "professional" athletes are coming from. A vast majority seem to be from inner city poor neighborhoods of large cities which are breeding grounds for gangs.

I went to a class on gangs a few years ago and they showed pics of professional athletes displaying gang signs. We were told if you watched sports enough and paid attention you would notice them. I rarely watch sports though so I never really noticed.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)
