San Diego Hoods
View the Map of San Diego Gangs
Neighboring the Mexican border is the city of San Diego, also known as Daygo. Within the streets and the San Diego hoods is a mixture of all races that include white, black, Asian, and Hispanic. All have their own separate identities and all run with their own affiliations of San Diego gangs, while residing within their own territory and community.
As mentioned, the city has numerous San Diego gangs and affiliations of all of the races throughout the North County, Southeast, East Side, South Bay, and East County sections of the San Diego’s metropolitan area. Many of these gangs account for various Varrios and Hispanic gangs, as well a large influx white and biker gangs, Bloods and Crips, and Asian gangs like the Asian Boys, Oriental Crips and the Deep Valley Bloods.
It should be noted that previous generations of the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s of San Diego gangs were much more active, as many factors, like a larger police presence in the community or the less need to commit crimes, have led to less street activity than previous eras.

Breakdown of the San Diego Hoods
Southern California’s San Diego County is home to a population of over 3 million people, with the region’s black population equaling 6%, Asians accounting for 13%, the Hispanic population totaling 34%, and the white community being the largest with over 46% of the total population.
San Diego’s Black Population
Historically, the black population has resided in the neighborhoods and communities of the Southeast Side and the East Side, also referred as East Daygo. These two sections began to have an influx of African Americans during San Diego’s early days as black families were redlined and forced to live in specific communities of Southeast San Diego following their arrival into the city.
San Diego’s Asian Population
The Asian community of San Diego, which also includes the city’s Pacific Islander population, has been around as long as any other ethnic group. Many Asians originally came to California as workers in the shipping and fishing industry decades ago. Most of San Diego’s Asian population resides in the North County section of San Diego, as well sections in East San Diego and Southeast San Diego.
San Diego’s Hispanic Population
With a close location to the Mexican border the story of the city’s Hispanic population begins when the city was first developed. The San Diego Hispanic population began around the Old Town neighborhood, which is northwest of downtown San Diego, and would later expand into numerous neighborhoods throughout the city, with areas like Barrio Logan or Logan Heights being the most known.
