Why is sons fighting for the stripe

from Wu-Tang Clan – A Better Tomorrow Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Why are we fighting for stripes (military ranks)

or why we only fighting for a stripe when we should be fighting for the whole flag

Perhaps since the stripes are blue (Crips) and red (Bloods) he is wondering why so many impoverished youths join gangs.
