A Detroit Tigers Hat Is A Gang Hat

New, 2 comments

Whenever I see somebody in the streets wearing a Detroit Tigers hat, it automatically induces a head nod out of me. "What's up? Go Tigers," is the implication. Now, after seeing Complex.com's list of the 10 most gang-affiliated hats in sports, I might be a little more reluctant to acknowledge a complete stranger wearing a Tigers hat. The Detroit Tigers hat is No. 7 on the list:

Adopted by: Gangster Disciples (Chicago)

↵

Why: The "D" stands for Disciple and the GD colors are black and blue.

↵

Complex says: Let's be real: A regular Detroit citizen rocking a Tigers' fitted is just as likely to shoot you as a GD.

100 street cred points to anyone wearing a Tigers hat, I guess. Just be careful of those wearing a Twins hat, as it's also gang related.
