We are getting the word out about how racism sucks! These lapel pins signify a solidarity against racism in the skinhead and punk communities. This shows unity not only against racism, but also between skinheads and punks!
I got the tattoo S.P.E.A.R. when I was 17 years old which means “Skins and Punks Everywhere Against Racism”.
I hung out with punkers and skateboarders as a teen until I met my cousin’s boyfriend who was a skinhead. This was the same time that the Ruby Ridge / Randy Weaver incident came into view for me. I was the same age as Randy Weaver’s 14 year old son Sammy Weaver, who authorities shot in the back and sniped his mother while she was in her home holding an infant.
The impact of the LA Riots and other highly racist and highly volatile events in the world in 1992 had a great impact on me, and without known any other skinheads except for my cousin’s boyfriend whom I would live with shortly after meeting him, I started associating myself as a skinhead. After about 2 years of meeting really narcissistic and selfish people who claimed to be “skinheads” I decided to get this tattoo to stand against racism.
As far as I know, I was the first person to get this tattoo, with this acronym about this cause.
I could be wrong. But I have had this for over 21 years, and I have been all over the world, and I have never came across this anywhere before. My point is, that this is a message that I strongly believe in, and I believe racism is total shit.
Judging people on something so shallow as their color or nationality is the weakest of all possible scrutiny. I admit I am prejudice about things. I am not an angel in regard to prejudice. I still see a dipshit with facial piercings who is holding a sign up saying “need money” or “need food” or “fuck the rich”, and I think to my self “lazy bastard”.
But to judge someone on race, gender or nationality is of the most shallow and weak prejudices that I have ever known.
