Shit, does anybody have a list of in what order did the gangs join the alliance?
For Blacks, it started when Larry Hoover formed the folk alliance right, and then Jeff Fort got in creating an alliance against them.
For the Hispanics, North side kings and South side kings got together so the only Hispanic gangs that recruited in prison were folks.
