The Bloods were formed by a variety of street gangs to oppose the rising influence of the Crips. They were founded in LA in 1972, and their dress code colors are red. They use hand signs for gang symbols.
The Bloods are a street gang that originated in Los Angeles, California. Their name comes from the fact that they often wore red clothing to show their affiliation. The Bloods are a part of numerous criminal activities, including robbery, drug dealing, and murder. They are estimated to have a membership of 20,000 to 25,000 people.
The Bloods are predominantly African American, while the Crips have members from all different racial backgrounds.

There is no official leader of the Bloods gang, but it is split into sets with its own hierarchical structure.
