How to Read American Gang Graffiti


Motoring down the 101 and exiting the freeway, I stopped at a local the Mickie Ds, the restroom was marked up with Chicano gang graffiti or more correctly what is known colloquially as a “placa.” The set is Pico Rivera East L.A County, however I believe they may have an affiliate in North Hollywood(?) as I also encountered some graff on a wall in East Hollywood also.
