* Those chavs may be posers, but on occasion you get one that's a tad more psycho than usual. Watch out for that one.

** Latino is not a race as much as it is an identity; While the average Latino is half white/half native, Asian and White Latinos who are also members of gangs aren't unheard of. * The prison-based Aryan Brotherhood, Nazi Lowriders, Public Enemy Number 1, and similar prison gangs tend to be more this in real life than ideological white supremacists, at least in many states. The AB in California had a long-standing relationship with La Eme to sell drugs and to ally against the blacks, and NLR accepts light-skinned Latinos as members.

** Latino is not a race as much as it is an identity; but a cultural identity. While the average Latino is half white/half native, has Amerindian and white ancestry, Asian and White white Latinos who are also members of gangs aren't unheard of. * The prison-based Aryan Brotherhood, Nazi Lowriders, Public Enemy Number 1, and similar prison gangs tend to be more this in real life than ideological white supremacists, at least in many states. The AB in California had a long-standing relationship with La Eme (the Mexican Mafia) to sell drugs and to ally as allies against the blacks, and NLR accepts light-skinned Latinos as members.

* Maryland based gang Dead Man Inc. started out as a non-white supremacist prison gang for white inmates, and became a street gang as members were released. * Public-service pamphlets issued by police and sheriffs' departments often employ artists who depict whites, blacks, and Latinos in equal measure as both lawmen and lawbreakers, regardless of how inaccurate this may be in a given area. (Native Americans get shortchanged because they're viewed as culturally invisible, and Asians don't show up often probably because [[FacialProfiling it's hard to quickly sketch an Asian without making him look like a caricature]].)

* Gender-based version in ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'': While instructing a counter-terrorism unit, Starr tells them to shoot the women first- if they managed to be accepted as a fellow soldier by her squadmates it's because she's more dangerous than all the others.

* Any protrayal of American or European street gangs in manga or anime. Examples include ''Banana Fish'', ''Manga/{{Fake}}'' and ''GunsmithCats''. Any work portraying Asian gangs will sometimes also show them interacting with TheMafia, though rarely with common street thugs.

* When Too Cool (Brian Christopher and Scott Taylor, formerly the AmbiguouslyGay tag team Too Much) returned after being off TV for a few months, they used this as a gimmick. However, after only about a month they joined up with Wrestling/{{Rikishi}}, turned face, and became [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy Pretty Fly For White Guys]] instead.

* In ads for the 2005 ''Royal Rumble'', Wrestling/{{WWE}} [[JustForPun played on the double meaning of the word "rumble"]] by riffing on ''Film/WestSideStory'', with the ''Raw'' Superstars as the Jets and the ones from ''[=SmackDown=]'' as the Sharks. This was probably because at that time, ''[=SmackDown=]'' featured almost all the promotion's Latino talent: Wrestling/EddieGuerrero and his nephew Wrestling/{{Chavo|GuerreroJr}}, Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr, and Wrestling/{{Carlito| Colon}} Caribbean Cool (who actually ''was'' Puerto Rican). However, the ''Raw'' gang, while mostly white, did include Wrestling/{{Batista}} (half-Asian, half-Caucasian), so WWE obviously weren't trying to be ''too'' literal.

* In ''Film/PulpFiction'', Marsellus Wallace's gang seems to be very ethnically diverse; Wallace (VingRhames, so black), is in charge of Vince (JohnTravolta) and Jules ({{Creator/SamuelLJackson}}) (amongst others), and has connections with both black and white criminals.

* Of course, the runaway success of Wrestling/{{new World order}} proved once and for all that colors, robbery, vandalism and gangsterism is one of the best ways to get results in professional wrestling, or at least you'd think that way by the number of times the stable has been imitated. Since most of their spiritual successors are in Wrestling/{{WCW}}'s home country, USA, where most professional wrestling promotions have an overwhelming roster of European ancestry, this resulted in the 1990s to early 2010s having a lot of white gang bangers in wrestling (Wrestling/{{ECW}}'s {{parody}}, [[Wrestling/TheBlueMeanie blue]] [[Wrestling/{{Nova}} World]] [[Wrestling/StevieRichards order]], for example, Wrestling/{{N|ational Wrestling Alliance}}WA's [[DistaffCounterpart fWo]] for another). That said, the nWo had Vincent and an entire Japanese branch. Many of their imitators had non white members like Aisha Sunshin and the latino World order was mostly non white.

* Also, some of the gangs from ''JetSetRadio''. Poison Jam are a good example, and they also worked for an Asian boss for a while. The main characters are a mix of ethnicities, including White, Black, Japanese and possibly other kinds of Asian (Beat is Korean, at least according to a popular {{Fanon}} theory).
