** The Almighty Gaylords were founded in 1953 by two veterans of TheKoreanWar named Anthony "Johnny Boy" Anarina and Bobby Shipball, and at one point they were the largest Caucasian gang in Chicago and the third-largest gang overall. Their peak of power was in TheSeventies and TheEighties but in the mid-1990's, they closed down the majority of their sets due to a mix of police crackdowns and older gang members retiring. They are the only major Caucasian gang with sets in the city proper, two small chapters in Sayre Park and Kilbourn Park with a large set in the suburb of Addison, Illinois. They also have a large presence in the rural Midwest, particularly in Des Moines, Iowa and rural Indiana, and have a few chapters in the Appalachian coalfields (most notably in Pikeville, Kentucky). They have been part of the People Nation gang alliance since 1979.

* Chicago has had many actual white street gangs throughout it history, most of them operating between TheFifties and TheNineties, though a few such as the Almighty Gaylords, Simon City Royals, Stoned Freaks, Insane C-Notes, and the Harrison Gents are still in operation today, albeit mostly in the outer suburbs of the city and in the rural Midwest, losing most of their turf in Chicago proper due to a mix of gentrification, heavy police pressure, and white flight making recruitment more difficult in the main parts of the city. Most of these gangs were originally more along the lines of GreaserDelinqeuents before evolving into this trope.

They have been part of the People Nation gang alliance since 1979.
** The Simon City Royals were the arch-rivals of the Gaylords and are heavily involved in the drug trade. They are part of the Folk Nation gang alliance and are closely allied with the Gangster Disciples, an African-American gang. However, most of the Simon City Royals these days are based in TheDeepSouth, particularly in Mississippi and Louisiana, where they hold a lot of sway in the joint.
** The Harrison Gents were able to remain in Chicago proper by opening up their ranks to Latinos in the late 1970's and then actively recruiting Latinos in the 1980s and 1990s. They are a Folk Nation gang allied with the Simon City Royals and Gangster Disciples.
** The Stoned Freaks are notable for originating in the later years of TheSixties as a gang of mostly white hippies who banded together to protect themselves from being preyed on by other gangs. They are in the People Nation and are close allies of the Latin Kings and especially the Gaylords. They have one active chapter in the Chicago suburb of Fox Lake, Illinois, and in addition to gang activities, the Stoned Freaks are also a major party crew in the Chicago club scene.
**The Insane C-Notes are a gang comprised mostly of Italian-Americans and was founded in 1952 as a recruitment farm for TheMafia in Chicago. Originally membership was exclusive to Italians and those of Italian descent, but in the early 1970's, they opened up recruitment to anyone who was white and lived in the areas that the C-Notes claimed as their turf. In 1995, they joined the Folk Nation gang alliance because the power of the gang's Mafia benefactors were waning rapidly. In 2000, the C-Notes opened up recruitment to Latinos and Asian-Americans, making them a case of EqualOpportunityEvil like the Harrison Gents two decades earlier.

* Pretty much all of the gangs in ''SaintsRow'', though membership in these seems to be more a factor of the part of the city one is from than ethnic heritage.

* In ''TheAllenAndCraigShow'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uxiF5NO1j8 Episode 12]], the cameraman (nameless, referred to as "camera guy") is kidnapped by two white thugsters with their eyes on the camera and "a guy to hold it".

*** In the second game, there was the Brotherhood (the "dregs", mostly white), the Ronin (Japanese), and the Sons of Samedi (drug runners, mostly Haitian).

*** In the second game, there was the Brotherhood (the "dregs", mostly white), the Ronin (Japanese), and the Sons of Samedi (drug runners, mostly Haitian). Of course, this was primarily the ethnicity of the leadership: all three gangs had a lot of white members simply because that was who they could readily recruit in Stilwater.
