This paper analyses the relationship between ethnic violence and the social position of those belonging to a Turkish street gang in Frankfurt. The relationship is examined through a discussion of the cultural values which inform the gang's thefts of leather jackets worn by young Germans and the explanations provided by the gang members for their aggressive acts. Their violence is a response to the segregation, degradation and humiliation which these young Turks experience as 'foreigners' in Germany. Their rationalisations can be understood as attempts to justify their violence and to ignore the viewpoints of their victims.
