yeah his credentials are definitely a who's who of conservative media. That said I feel like it's a one way relationship? Like conservatives will back some of his """"tamer"""" stuff because it's...

I've read a few articles that suggest that Johnson might be an actual sociopath or have some sort of mental condition. Not that it excuses his act, he's definitely in a league of his own. That said,...

It's not a myth, but at the same time, skinhead culture isn't exactly a culture that's covered by mainstream media, or the sort of music news that AP or any popular sites cover. So you get this thing...

Okay, so in the public eye this subculture is associated with racism but in reality, not so much.

That's not meant to be condescending, I'm just trying to figure out where the argument is here.

I've had family members associated with skinhead bands in Canada in the 80s, maybe I'm bias or have a different perspective.

FWIW, SHARP (skins against racial prejudice) is a group and their FB page...

I guess I got tied up in defending skinhead when that's not my intention; where I'm from at least, skinhead is associated with working class punks rather than anything racist. That racists adopted...

Didn't know they were a poc, my bad. i don't know what that has to do with being condescending or making a weird assumption about a subculture though.

Yeah it's probably best you cut the condescending bullshit here on a topic where you clearly have no idea what you're talking about. Stop talking for all POCs, it's probably best.

thank you? for what? lol

skinhead has nothing to do with racism. that there are skinheads who are ultra right wing holds no bearing on the subculture.

Yeah this. To my understanding, the skinhead aesthetic was birthed from working class UK, partially in response to rude boys (fancy dressers, listened to dub and early ska, fedora and checkered...

shocking actually, considering they're still really really catholic. Isn't abortion still super illegal?

Either way that's awesome

Also, categorizing skin heads as racists is a wide sweeping generalization. Tons of skins are in it because they identify with the blue collar, working class aesthetic. That there's an overlap...

at least in hockey, I know some prospects regularly drop a few rounds. maybe STL knew no one would draft him so they waited it out. maybe he didn't fit the team's needs. I dunno.

I remember him being projected to go between the 4th-6th, and then went 7th round. I don't think a drop of a round or two that late in the draft in totally unheard of. But he might've been drafted...

I also am not as well versed in football as I am in hockey, but that's definitely a good point in that a lot of bad players suit up. It's possible that he has ostracized by being gay, in fact it's...
