Stanley Tookie Williams met Raymond Lee Washington in 1969, and the two decided to unite their local gang members from the west and east sides of South Central Los Angeles in order to battle neighboring street gangs. Gang activity in South Central Los Angeles has its roots in a variety of factors dating back to the 1950s and '60s, including post-World War II economic decline leading to joblessness and poverty, racial segregation leading to the formation of black "street clubs" by young African American men who were excluded from organizations such as the Boy Scouts, and the waning of black nationalist organizations such as the Black Panther Party and the Black Power Movement.

By 1978, there were 45 Crips gangs, called sets, operating in Los Angeles.

The gang became increasingly violent as they attempted to expand their turf.

The Crips have over 800 sets with 30,000 to 35,000 members and associate members, including more than 13,000 members in Los Angeles.

It would later turn violent as gang warfare ensued between former allies.

This battle continued and by 1973, the Piru Street Boys wanted to end the violence and called a meeting with other gangs that were targeted by the Crips.

The Crips, also known as Original Crip Homies (OCH), are a gang based in the coastal regions of Southern California.

They were founded in Los Angeles, California in 1969 mainly by Raymond Washington and Stanley Williams.

The growth and power of the gang really took off in the early 1980s when crack cocaine hit the streets.

In the early 1980s, Crips sets began distributing crack cocaine in Los Angeles.

Historically, members have been primarily of African-American heritage.
