Very few think about it, but almost every country has its low-class gangsters. And each of them has their own specific subculture and style.
France — Racaille
Racaille, as true Frenchmen, possess a flawless style. They prefer Lacoste, wear Lacoste belt bags, and think that the height of style is pants tucked into socks. They hang out at suburban train stations, listen to music on their cell phones, hit on chicks, gang up on nerds, and steal bags (which are not necessarily Lacoste).
USA — White trash
Low-class people are often called „white trash.“ They remind one of old, permanently drunk scouts. Most of them are unemployed, and they live in trailer parks. They like to drink beer with other dudes, start fights, tease some naive people, or hustle a house.
England — Chavs
Chavs live in poor suburban districts. London traffic is too heavy for them. Chavs look like typical thugs: sportswear, shaved heads, a cigarette stuck in their teeth, and a plastic glass in their hand. Their activities are also typical: deceiving people into parting with their money, raising alarm in the street, drinking in public places, and having a serious talk and chilling out, of course.
Japan — Yankii
Yankii are working-class Japanese youngsters. They are not tough guys like the yakuza, of course. But they are famous for being loud, rude, and refusing to take part in the strict manners of Japanese culture. A few curious facts: they like to squat and listen to Japanese gangsta-rap (which is probably about hard lives) while drinking sake. They are fond of motorcycles, and they dye their hair blond or orange.
India — Tapori
Tapori are street thugs from Mumbai. Their motto: „Milking a dummy is saint.“ That is why their main activity is hustling tourists. They like to use a lot of hair gel, wear huge gold chains and teeth, flirt with chicks by whistling after them, and dream of becoming Bollywood stars. The latter, by the way, actively uses their grotesque prototype in movies.
