Anatomy Of A Skinhead

Guest host Phoebe Judge leads us through the story of Frank Meeink, who joined a hardcore skinhead group when he was 14 years old. He talks about his neo-Nazi beliefs and the constant violence he was involved in, giving a sense of how members of these groups see the world in the aftermath of the shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. Meeink, author of Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead, left the skinheads and now works with anti-hate groups.
