But their is a lot of symbolism behind what could be classified as a cult.
Not so much with the "Latin Kings" who also use a Five Point Star, Although their's arises from the Puerto Rico Flag.
The Latin Kings:
Are as follows...
Iron Team (Alchemical and True Color of Iron is Red) = "Neighborhood Watch Program"
Lead Team (Alchemical and True Color of Lead is Black) = "Tenant Association"
Gold Team (Alchemical and True Color of Gold is Yellow) = "Building Management"
Such are the three colors of the Latin Kings and with it their "Mettle!"
The Crown, whilst taken for granted and more often than not misused and repeatedly replaced with other crowns (
) is a tool which defines their
regard for human affairs. Nothing else is to be attributed unto it.
Human affairs which time and again play out within their community.
Not many definitions.
It is divied up into three sets and its base...
The first set is the five towering pillars of the crown which are called points.
Respect... Although in their community it is more occutlic than anything else. It is not based on moral ethics. Instead on the potential leadership of
the command. The "Respect" is code name for "Psychology"
A science which draws in unto itself a profound reverence we may intend to call hereafter "Respect."
Honesty... As stated earlier, it is more occultic than anything else. It is code name for "Politics"
This too is a science which bears heavy a toll on the community.
Unity... Herein found is an alternative to protest. Instead it is more reliant on penal codes and there enforcement.
This is code name for "Penalization" and or "Penal System"
In street terms it is regarded as being forced to live under guidelines and hierarchies. Sadly tho... it is uneducated. However, if it is a science...
it will generally prepare them for the ultimate assault on their community. They may well enough defend it or die trying. Untiy eh?!?
Knowledge... This is code name for the science, yes! the science known as "Politheism"
The belief in many deities. Whilst no one in particular is considered all mighty... they tend to lean more toward the understanding that each portion
of deity and/or deities has a grand contribution to human affairs. Thus they do not rule out any form of worship and praise. This they do with
cunning. Not with moral ehtic.
In the streets you are hunter or hunted.
Love... This is code name for the science know only as "Philosophy"
Whilst it seems harmless and even at time pointless. Philosophy, to them, defines their tenets and codes, as well as their ethics. So... to make a
long story short... Philospohy is the science of moral conduct!
They place great emphasis on certain particulars and requisites. I can not define them for you under penalty of death!
The second set is what is called the "Five Diamonds"
These they substitute as representing the five senses of mortal man.
However... it is not the case hereafter when community is involved. The former is just an instruction to initiate.
The latter deals heavily with five particulars.
Now, on to...
The five stones.
These genrally are taught to define rank. But again it is not the case when community is o involved.
The first stone:
Symbolizes "Ownership!" A dream come true in america!
They seek to establish themselves as heirs and owners. Hence The "Onyx Stone" represents the absolute.
Onyx is code name for operation "Ownership"
The second stone:
This is slighty off base. They are accredited with the ordeal of administration. These are not heirs, but rather individuals of choice and utilize
every available resource to establish the higher custom known as "Good Living."
They are represented by the "Pearl Stone"
Their craft is based on civil law and community renewal. These are a great contribution to the organization.
The third stone:
This is drawn from a particular class of citizenry. These are known as the (A dream come true in America!) "Militia" which is represented by the
"Emerald Stone" ---> What more need I say!
The fourth stone:
This too is a particular class of citizenry. These are partners in the human affairs and contriute aught but business and generate income. It is
represented by the "Ruby Stone"
The fifth stone:
This particular class of citizenry is more reliant on the spirituality of the grand scheme.
They tend to lean more toward the sciences and the strong and profound belief in deity.
A mighty fine class they are. Generals have been know to spur from this class. They are represented by the "Amber Stone."
Note that each ends with "Hip" So if you see mortal king with hand on hip... blah blah blah.
Lastly... There is the base of the crown.
It represents the actual deity of social class. This is not defined as minority class. Nationality!
