    Some of truth about skinheads.

    This book is informing about the life of skinheads. But it isnt all true, they try to make it seem that all skinheads are bad, when a lot of them are just miss guided. It talks about how much we 'skinheads' hate other races. But that's not all completly true. It's not about the hate for others but the love of our own. It also talks about how drugs are a major part of our life, when no REAL skinhead does drugs. Drugs corrupt your mind and body, and thats not what we want for ourself and the future of the white race. I really think if you want to learn more about skinheads and about the movement, do your own research and talk to real skinheads. No one is ever going to know the real truth, unless a fellow skinhead writes his own book.
