East Side Dreams reaches out to the youth and shows kids involved in gangs that there is a way out. When involved in a gang you feel there is no way out, nobody understands your struggle and your chances of dying is 60% more than the average person. It is important to reach out to the youth and Art Rodriguez has done a great job contributing to that cause. The gang life I can relate too. In my experience and in the music that the older homies use to influence their young recruits always explain the struggle that once you are in there is no way out.
First Lansky like Schultz had a rough childhood and lived in poverty. At a young age he was looking for fast ways to make money. This search for money regardless of the circumstances separates Lansky and Schultz from others at the time.

Kendrick Lamar is one such artist, he grew up in Compton, California, a city known for its crime. His father was a member of a street gang, and Kendrick’s family had ties to the famous gang the Bloods. Lamar was raised in a rough neighborhood during the 90s, but he overcame his history and became a successful artist and is using his voice for a greater purpose like reappropriating a racists slur. In the song “I” Kendrick successfully reappropriates the n-word by being a member of a marginalized group, empowering his group, and reconstructing the racist slur.

As a producer/director it is hard to precisely depict genuine occasions that depend on a genuine story. Edward James Olmos went up against that test as he featured and coordinated the gang related motion picture in light of genuine occasions titled American Me. Brutal scenes go with the job when making films about packs and mobsters, and Olmos saved no cost with American Me. Olmos ' offered a reasonable delineation of how the Mexican Mafia started and in addition what it resembled for a youthful Chicano to experience childhood in Los Angeles amid the 1980 's, and the 1940 's. What can be troublesome about recounting the account of posse life is the way that on the off chance that you reveal excessively data about what truly happened, there can be shocking repercussions that accompany it.
Andrew Jackson was brought up through humble beginnings and hardships throughout his lifetime, starting out as the son of poor Irish immigrants to becoming the seventh president of the United States in 1828.

Jackson’s policies were criticized throughout the nation, earning him a very questionable spot in history. While some may argue that Andrew Jackson supported the “common man” and tried to do what was best for the majority of the nation, his economic policies and his treatment towards the Native Americans
Humans are social creatures who thrive upon other’s approval, crave love and community, and are driven by their emotions. Gangs are created to feed those urges; people find a community who accepts them, take control of their own future and find an identity for themselves. In the 1960s, the first gang emerged in LA. The gang comprised of young, African-American men, who felt they only had themselves to depend on. Excluded from the Boy Scouts, stopped regularly by the police, and feared by much of the LA population, they felt alienated from the rest of the world.
It was destined to bring untold wealth to a few and unbridled violence and death to many” (Maclean 68). “While no one gang had dominance over the entire city of Chicago, Johnny Torrio and Al Capone would change all that” (Maclean 71). “When it had become apparent that the Volstead Act would become law, Torrio immediately began making plans for the Colosimo mob to cash in on it. Unfortunately, Colosimo wasn’t interested: he was happy with his brothel and casino empire as it was” (Maclean 71).
