Anonymous said: so you're completely okay with associating yourself with something that is fundamentally and intrinsically based on hate because you're too lazy to educate yourself? In a way, I kind of have to thank you, because you just helped me realize why cultural appropriation (of poc's) is so fundamentally wrong.
For someone who is saying I’m too lazy to educate myself you sure didn’t even give the time to look this shit up on wikipedia did you? But because I’m a wonderful person let me copy and paste for you:
"A skinhead is a member of a subculture that originated among working class youths in London, England in the 1960s and then soon spread to other parts of the United Kingdom, and later to other countries around the world. Named for their close-cropped or shaven heads, the first skinheads were greatly influenced by West Indian (specifically Jamaican) rude boys and British mods, in terms of fashion, music and lifestyle. Originally, the skinhead subculture was mainly based on those elements, not politics or race. In fact, many British Skinheads during the 1960s were black”
This is the first fucking paragraph. Have some more:
"In the United States, anti-racist skinheads countered the neo-Nazi stereotype by forming organisations such as the Minneapolis Baldies, which started in 1986; Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice (SHARP), which was founded in New York City in 1987 and then spread to other countries; and Anti-Racist Action (ARA), which was formed in the late 1980s by members of the Minneapolis Baldies and other activists.
On the far left of the skinhead subculture, redskins and anarchist skinheads take a militant anti-fascist and pro-working class stance. In the United Kingdom, two groups with significant numbers of leftist skinhead members were Red Action, which started in 1981, and Anti-Fascist Action, which started in 1985. Internationally, the most notable left-wing skinhead organisation is Red and Anarchist Skinheads, which formed in the New York City area in 1993 and then spread to other countries”
Next time you want to call someone lazy please at least do a little more work than they did. That is just rude.
