They were founded in the early s as part of efforts of protection   for Southeast Asian immigrants and refugees from the more numerous American gangs in their localities. The Asian Boyz gang was formed in Long Beach, California in the early s, drawing members from immigrant communities from Southeast Asia. Their identity also attracts notable controversy, being that the Cambodian sets are notoriously influential and decorated as their own faction of Crips that is, among other things, racially or ethnically distinct. Although the Asian Boyz gang comprise their own identity as an organization, the identity itself is largely interpreted as an umbrella of individual Crip gangs or "sets"; hence their alternative monikers "Asian Crips" and "Asian Boyz Crip". Though the relationships between these individual sets are unclear, the various Southeast Asian members tend to work with people of their own national, ethnic or cultural background. More recent publications since have revealed even more information about the gang, notable details include the alliance of a number of gangs based in Long Beach, California referred to as SEAs, an abbreviation of Suicidal Town, Exotic Family City Crip and Asian Boyz.

The stereotypes of gangs have always been within the demographics of Latinos and African-Americans, but other races, which include Caucasians and Asians, also have small number of gang members within their communities. Modern day Asian gangs, in which have heavy American influence, originally formed throughout the s, s, and s as a way to establish protection for themselves from other demographic groups who would attack the newly arrived foreigners. Asian gangs for years have flown under the radar within popular culture while having little to no media attention, but in many cities of California it has been well known about the hidden Asian lifestyle.
