“Blood oranges imply the existence of Crip oranges”

"Bloods” and “Crips” are the names of rival gangs in California. There is a “blood orange,” and some have suggested there must be a “crip orange.”

“Got some blood oranges. Woke up to a territory war in the kitchen with their rival crip oranges. (via @awryone)” was posted on Twitter by Ticia Drake Isom on September 22, 2009. “I have been informed that no… there is no such thing as crip orange… only blood orange ... #knowledgeIsPower” was posted on Twitter by 🤟🏾☄️ | Ziiiro on January 14, 2012. “RT @duplicitron: I accidentally left a blood orange next to a crip orange and now there’s fucking juice everywhere” was posted on Twitter by 𝕡𝕙𝕠𝕤𝕡𝕙𝕠𝕣 𝕘𝕝𝕠𝕨 on August 26, 2012.

Wikipedia: Blood orange
The blood orange is a variety of orange (Citrus × sinensis) (also referred to as raspberry orange) with crimson, almost blood-colored flesh.

Wikipedia: Bloods
The Bloods, also known as Original Blood Family (OBF), are a primarily African-American street gang founded in Los Angeles, California. The gang is widely known for its rivalry with the Crips.

Wikipedia: 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. Once a single alliance between two autonomous gangs, they are now a loosely connected network of individual “sets”, often engaged in open warfare with one another.
