    ..or as they call it a tribe The gang reference fits perfectly though.. You can't just decide one day you are going to be in a gang.. you have to be accepted by the members and have to prove yourself to them and sometimes even be jumped in [think circumcision]. Take gypsies for example -- you can't just one day decide to be a gypsy -- you'd have to be accepted in - again , tribal/gang like. Heck, even among blacks.. they're tribal too. To be really accepted into their community requires time , respect and them testing you, learning you in order to trust you and even then you will still catch flak from those who don't know you very well - however your having respect and acceptance among other blacks who are respected goes a long way. Seems like everyone is tribal except large parts of N West Euros !
