gangsters vs. thugs

Something that really infuriates me is people saying that "yeah I'm such a thug" or "I live the thug life". People who believe they're cool because they're thugs are retarded. Theres a difference between thugs and gangsters. A thug is a terrible human being. Someone with no soul that just seeks to hurt people. Here's an example of a thug...

Thugs dont do much more than shoot people and get shot themselves. They dont accomplish much beyond killing or hurting people. They're just wannabe gangsters. I can't understand why anyone would want to label themselves as a person who kills for the sake of killing...

As for gangsters, a gang is more of an institution. Gangsters are more like businessmen. I prefer to use the term mafia or cartel with real gangs. Their main intention isn't to kill, but to make money in most cases. Al Capone was a real gangster. He controlled the economy and made boatloads of money. Here are some real gangsters:


  1. Hey Angel! I really love your blog. I also love that we're reading the same book! Or rather, read the same book. Id have to agree on all accounts in this post. I don't see why anyone would want to be labeled a gangster or a thug. I guess it's just a part of some Mexican culture. Killing is unforgivable and it's not something you can just forget about. It will always be in the back of your mind. Even if you get away with it, you still have the guilt of what you've done and the bad decisions you've made. Anywho, I really enjoyed this! Keep blogging!

    1. I can't believe you actually took the time to read this post....

      Killing isn't as bad as you think. it's just like watching people die in real life. its not such a bad experience as people believe it to be. Its traumatizing for a moment, then you forget about it after some time...

    2. another thing people dont realize is that there are actually gangsters that dont really do anything wrong. They dress like the OG gangsters, and have their swagger and money making talents. The dont actually kill people sometimes...

  2. Well, there are the gangsters who act like businessmen such as Al Capone or the ones detailed in Gang Leader for a Day, but there are also those who engage in meaningless violence and fruitless vandalism. "Thug" isn't really a term that is used properly (same with "punk," "moron," and "idiot"), but it doesn't really matter anymore, does it? These terms are used as catch-alls, and the real owners of those terms probably don't care about what the general populace thinks, it doesn't really matter.

  3. Hey Angel! I really never thought about the difference between a gangster or a thug. I just try to stay away from anything related to that. However your blog cvaught my attention. I never really knew the difference between them, but now I do and I am really surprised that someone might want to be labeled as a killer. That is pretty messed up an dI can see why that bothers you. If I wanted to be called anything, the last thing I would want to be called is a murderer or a thug

  4. Sarah Seward are you really that f ing ignorant or just that damn racist????? To the blogger you are right there is a difference between a thug nd a gangster and you are right for the most part though there are a few more things that makes the difference. Now back to sara you might want to get ur facts straight the so called "Thug life" movement was started by black people. So before you insult my race again check your damn facts before you post
