3720 words - 15 pages

When someone mentions the word "Skinhead" one usually thinks of nazis. The majority of Skinheads are not direct nazis', they just share some common beliefs. They are thought of as racist youth that hate non-whites and Jews. British skinheads beliefs go deeper, their hatred for other races comes from their strong love and dangerous pride of their race. This white power that the skinheads exult can be summed up in the "14 words" by David Lane, "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children".# White power is a way for skinheads to feel closer to other whites, and also to make them proud of being white. It is not possible for just a random group to successfully emerge without having any reason. Skinheads reasons were quite simple, their lifestyle deteriorating. The trigger of the second skinhead movement was caused by immigrants taking their jobs. The previous events that preceded the movement were economic decay, earlier racial tensions, and strong nationalistic feelings. It is very important to see how everything influenced and allowed the second generation skinhead to become so powerful.#In post WWII era England's economic condition was excellent and it allowed the general population to flourish. People enjoyed themselves and indulged in other activities other than work. The British would now see much more activity in their lives.

They originated from the Beats but were not focused on only one music genre. The new youth involved in this subculture were known as Teddy Boys. As did the Beats, the Teddy Boys to also listened to American music. Elvis Presley, Little Richard, and Jerry Lee Lewis were some of the artist that the Teddy Boys enjoyed the most. Also during this time the first main immigration by "Afro-Caribbean's" took place. Most of the new immigrants mixed well and found a place in British society, but a hand full of immigrants became involved in "racketeering and prostitution". These new troubles brought in by a few bad Afro-Caribbean's were taken very seriously by the Teddy Boys, who took a rather aggressive approach to the situation. The Teddy Boys became involved in attacks against Afro-Caribbean's in "the ghettos of West London". The Teddy Boys racial...
