The Face Of Skinheads Essay, Research Paper Kevin M. Sullivan Jr. Sociology October 13, 2000 The Face of Skinheads Webster?s Dictionary defines skinheads, “as usually a white male belonging to any of various, sometimes violent, youth gangs whose members have close-shaven hair and often espouse white-supremacist beliefs.” I had the pleasure, more like displeasure, of looking up information on skinheads and found that they are not at all as the dictionary defined them as. They are worse then any of those English majors could imagine. Skinheads are very violent and ignorant people, they feel that they are superior to all other races. They follow the rules set down by Adolf Hitler, his teachings and his bigotry fuel their fight. Such people as Tom Metzger, Terrible Tommy,

Leon Degrelle, Alex Curtis, and Shane McCormick, publisher of Hammerskin Press and leader of Hammerskins.com, view themselves as superior. I have decided to focus on these five people to show you how terrible these white supremacist groups are. Tom Metzger is the director of a very extensive group called the, “White Aryan Resistance.” His view is that whites are supreme and all other races, especially African Americans and Jews, are inferior. He has six children, five of them girls, women are also looked at as inferior to white men. His son has grown to be just like him. His son, John Metzger, has also been involved in riots and brawls. John was arrested in Toronto, in 1992, for giving a speech that was, “likely to commit an indictable offense.”(resist.com) John like his

father is a hated person. Tom Metzger has been involved in, “brawls, riots, negotiations with the Black Panthers and Louis Farrakhan, half dozen assassination attempts, and he also won the Democratic Primary in 1980.”(resist.com) His attitude towards his life and the situations he has been in is one of happiness. He has no remorse for any of the crimes or any of the violent acts he was involved in. He is one of the most hated people in the political scene. He uses Hitler?s teachings to guide his life. Terrible Tommy is of course an alias for an Aryan on-line paper publisher. I read the articles that were published on the W.A.R. web-site, W.A.R. stands for White Aryan Resistance. These articles show that the Aryan race feel that all other races are inferior. These articles

call the presidential election, “Two Aryan Morons at the front of the pack with an assortment of non-Aryans and unknowns bringing up the rear.”(resist.com) His comments on the United States have a very racist tone. His views on society and how the U.S. is run are very far fetched and very racist he places blame on all other races. Here is a excerpt from one of the many letters written by Terrible Tommy: “During the last century before the total collapse of Rome, the Romans had adopted the practice of giving “citizenship” to foreigners and slaves. Thus, as multi-culturalism, consumerism, Jewism and Jewish Christianity, crude capitalism, and prostitution became so rampant in the government that the “tax base” of the government could no longer support the needs of the

white people. In the case of American, it will be the mongrel horde of Jewish controlled mestizo, negro, asiatic, mulatto mud hybrids that is sweeping down from the hills to overthrow the white population. America has built it?s present day house on a weak foundation of sand?so that when the rains come and the winds blow, the ground gives way and great is the fall.”(resist.com) He says that the United States is falling for allowing people to come here and start a new life. That is no true at all. He says the non-whites are taking white jobs, again not true. People who usually immigrate into this country come illegally are forced to work under the table at unsafe jobs and are usually paid under minimum wage. They are forced to live like dogs and are force to live with little or
