sorry if I'm skipping over others' opinions but I really don't want to read 7 pages of Yes and No. In my personal opinion, they're harmless. I understand that they do a lot of fighting and arguing and such but controversy sells, 1. I live in an area filled with people who really are in gangs and start fights. When I compare these guys, who really get into shit, to ANY online gang... I can only shake my head and mind my own business. If it takes a group of people to curse out one person, let them think they won. If you don't like how they dress then don't dress like them -- they probably don't like how you dress, either. If you don't like how they talk, put them on ignore. As far as money goes, Home is a cashcow as we all know and you couldn't be any more correct -- adding more urban clothing to suit these people would be a benefit to Sony in a monitary value. I'd even dress my avi in some urban-styled clothing.
When you see a fam, gang, club or even an orgy on he Singstar dance floor, just remind yourself of when you were a child and played with your toys. Using your imagination and playing pretend. While they're pretending they're Al Capone and his family or some NYC gang, pretend they're something else.
