At school, the different ways people dress classify 'gangs'...which goes as such:

The 'tree kids' are the 'punk' kids, mostly in black, and various accessories, they all have tempers (I'm friends with many) and are the ones most of the 'normal' kids are scared of.


The 'wall kids' are the goth/misc misfit kids, are the ones that eat kind of over by 'the tree' but just lean against the wall and wear more black than the previous group, plus the black makeup and such. (I'm friends with some.)


The band kids sit infront of the band building. (I know all of them.)


And the 'nazi kids' eat at the opposite side of the court yard from the 'tree' and 'wall' kids. They're really not nazi's, some of them just have shaved heads, so everyone thought they were. In all actualness, they're just the lacrosse team. These are my current lunch group.



Anyway, there was a big thing last year between the 'tree' kids and the 'nazi' kids...which ended in anti-nazi patches being made, and suspension, and an almost all-out brawl. So yes, they all got called into a big meeting, and were told that if any of the 'gangs' from the court yard got in any more trouble, they'd be expelled...

It's stupid really. But yes, now our school is a 'gang' school because one group of people that dress alike get mad at another and it turns into badness.

Thankfully everything calmed down this year.

Aww. We have real gangs at my school. They attack day laborers and steal from 7-11s.

As far as emo goes, there's a significant following of groups like Hawthorne Heights among some of the kids who watch MTV and lots of the hipsters like Bright Eyes. No one really dresses according to emo style, though. Closest thing to it (as far as I can see) would be the theater kids, who have a penchant for black-framed glasses and poorly dyed hair (though the hot color to rebel with is red-brown). The theater kids are weak imitations of theater kids long past--these noobs think that theater is composed of Rent, Avenue Q and maybe a quick stop over to Wicked. And they all like Ashlee Simpson.

Clique-wise, there's the boys who play lacrosse, all of whom quote Dane Cook and secretly long to be wrestlers, and the girls who comb and curl their eyelashes. Most of these girls wear low-slung jeans, polo shirts and shrunken sweaters, and listen to the Garden State soundtrack. We used to have a significant hippie population, but most of those petered out after their fifth year of high school. There's also the black girls who tend to make themselves interchangable*, much to my dismay. They wear fur-trimmed high-heeled boots and very slick lips. There's a clan of trendy Jewish boys who enroll in too many AP classes and whine about it. Frankly, I miss the hippies.

*this is different from the monotony of other cliques because this one appears to be common to everyone in a race-gender group, as opposed to a sports team or group who swap makeup tips--thereby making the one who draws the generalizations profoundly uncomfortable. But it is very difficult to find a black girl at my school who doesn't fall into this group.
