True about skinheads. The Misfits wrote `London Dungeon` because they were arrested after getting in a fight with a gang of skinheads waiting to hear The Jam.

"When, EVER, have skinheads danced to reggae music?"

Skinheads weren`t originally racist nazi`s and I think only became that in America. In England during the late 70`s and early 80`s they were into reggae and two tone etc watch some `this is England 86` and there`s even the song skinhead moonstomp by symarip that`ll give you the jist of what they were originally.

They listned to Anarchy in the UK once, and decided all punks are anarchists. Nice work.

Yeah, "pork pie hat" is either something I`ve never heard of, or never cared enough to translate/remember. Now I know and knowing is half the battle.

Skin heads, as with most social groups, do not all share the same ideology and values.

There are ShARPies. Skinheads against racial prejudice.

There are very racist groups of skins as well, the Tri-State Skins in my area are a good example of that.

Some are simply very militant in organization and allow members of any race or creed.


There is no stereotype out there that 100% describes a group of people.

Skinheads that were racist came later. Original skinheads were not racist infact quite the opposite. Skinheads called the racist people who got had hair cuts like that "boneheads" but the media never the less called them skinheads.
