I work in a prison and know about the Neo-Nazi/skinheads!
"When I heard Frank Meeink interviewed on National Public Radio recently, I knew I had to buy this book. I work in a prison, and know of this kind of belief system that the minority of white young men espouse to feel less powerless in an overwhelmingly black prison population. It is a microcosm of the powerlessness felt by increasing numbers of young white males in a country which, probably by this 2010 census, will be revealed that a number tipping over 50% of the population will be listed as "people of color" as compared with the percentage of white population in the U.S. Why should we know about this? Because it will impact our children who attend college and who are exposed to neo-Nazis like Frank Meeink, who wrote about a college student who he once "held down so another skinhead could pry a hammer from his head...when I glanced down at the bloody face of [the] college student, I had been seized by a horrible realization: 'He could be my Uncle Dave,' my childhood hero, the guy I could've been, should've been, if everything in my whole f'g. life had been different...But I'd shaken that thought off the second it flashed across my mind, and I kicked that poor college kid more, harder...I laughed at his suffering...And for years...I believed I was fighting a holy war...I was raining down God's justice on an evil world." Read this book and find out from the inside why a skinhead like Frank Meeink became who he was, and why he decided to stop being what he was. Knowledge, I tell my "guys" in prison, is power--and so is awareness! I am waiting for the response paper written by one young man who told me that "Hitler fought a holy war". I'm hoping this will start a dialogue, which will be interesting, at least. We all live in our safe little lives, but when something like the Oklahoma City bombing happens, and someone like Frank Meeink says he knows why and how it might have happened, it behooves us to listen and learn. Well written and a fascinating and unfortunately timely subject! I highly recommend it!"
