Area gangs confused by Superman's wardrobe colors
The blue tights, red cape, and yellow-and-red chest insignia of an iconic American superhero have left some East Tennessee gang members scratching their heads. After spotting a flying man in his gang's territory Thursday, Knoxville Crip Raymond Williams spent a few confused moments debating whether to rob and beat the airborne tourist, or to instead invite him to help expand his growing drug distribution network. Williams is not alone. In recent days, gang members have been all like, what the hell, man? "Traditionally we have seen Crips wearing blue, Bloods wearing red and members of the Latin Kings wearing yellow or gold," said Knoxville police spokesperson Tinah Miller. "This guy has all three colors of underwear. It's like he has no fear. Or fashion sense. "
