HOMIES SERIES 12 FIGURINES!! THIS IS THE 12th SERIES PUT OUT BY DAVID GONZALES CREATOR OF THE HOMIES. The Homies are a
group of tightly knit Chicano buddies who have grown up in the Mexican American barrio (neighborhood) of "Quien Sabe",
(who knows) located in East Los Angeles. Their separate and distinct personalities and characteristics together make up
a single, composite entity that is the "HOMIES." In an inner-city world plagued by poverty, oppression, violence, and
drugs, the Homies have formed a strong and binding cultural support system that enables them to overcome the surrounding
negativity and allows for laughter and good times as an anecdote for reality. The word "Homies" itself is a popular
street term that refers to someone from your hometown or, in a broader sense, anyone that you would acknowledge as your
friend. In use in the West Coast Latino community for decades, the word "Homies" has crossed over into the now
mainstream Hip-Hop street culture that has taken America's young people by storm.
