Former neo-Nazi removes swastika tattoos after unlikely friendship

Оценок: 92110 | Просмотров: 5173022
Colorado resident Michael Kent recently sat down at a tattoo parlor in Colorado Springs to have his swastikas covered up. Follow reporter Michael Koenigs @MikeOnABikeABC for more profile pieces. Kent, a former neo-Nazi, credits an African-American parole officer named Tiffany Whittier with helping him to see beyond skin color and changing his views about white supremacy. “If it wasn’t for her I would have seeped back into it,” said Kent. “I look at her as family.” Whittier, 45, even inspired Kent, 38, to take down the Nazi flags he had hanging in his living room and replace them with smiley faces. “I’m not here to judge him. That’s not my job to judge. My job is to be that positive person in someone’s life,” Whittier said. Added Kent, “When you wake up and see a smiley face, you’re going to go to work and you’re going to smile.” PHOTO: Former skinhead Michael Kent gives his former parole officer Tiffany Whittier a hug after she surprises him at his home.ABC News Former skinhead Michael Kent gives his former parole officer Tiffany Whittier a hug after she surprises him at his home.more + Kent now works full-time on a chicken farm in Colorado, where all his co-workers are Hispanic. “Before all this, I wouldn’t work for anybody or with anybody that wasn’t white,” said Kent. “[Now] we have company parties, or they have quinceañeras, I’m the only white guy there!” Redemption Ink, a national non-profit that offers free removals of hate-related tattoos, helped connect Kent with Fallen Heroes Tattoo in Colorado to begin the 15-hour process of covering his swastikas. The sterile environment is new to Kent who had his previous ink work done in prison. “I’ve never, never, never been inside of a tattoo shop getting a professional tattoo,” he said. Kent believes the painful process will help him move forward after spending years as a member of a violent skinhead group based in Arizona. As a father of two young children, Kent also hopes his children will see the world differently. “I don’t want my kids to live the life I lived and live with hate,” said Kent. “I want my kids to know me for who I am now—a good father, a hard worker, and a good provider.” SUBSCRIBE to ABC NEWS: https://www.youtube.com/ABCNews/ Watch More on http://abcnews.go.com/ LIKE ABC News on FACEBOOK https://www.facebook.com/abcnews FOLLOW ABC News on TWITTER: https://twitter.com/abc GOOD MORNING AMERICA'S HOMEPAGE: https://gma.yahoo.com/

The swastika is generally Indian, but everyone has it, but why do white Nazis use it? would take the runes their white, and in general who are the Aryans, and what they gave to the world? it is unlikely that among these bald ones there will be Newtons, Tesla and other white geniuses. Everyone can destroy, and you go and create something. If Newton is a genius, this does not mean that all Englishmen are like that. If you do not love others for God's sake fuck your white woman, but why should others impose your world view? and if you are a fighter for purity, you can, as a white elite, fuck your sisters, blue blood, etc. Earlier, even white killed red and green-eyed. What for ?

+Tracy Drennan Remember without white supremacists and the US's history of slavery and institutionalized racism there would have no need for groups like the Black Panthers. As you can see from their original name, The Black Panther Party (BPP), originally the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. Self defense from who? White supremacists and racists of course. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Panther_Party

Pete is never wrong Just saying , it would be heart warming to see other hate groups give up hate . I only see x-skinnned heads and stuff , time and time again . It makes it look like only whites are capable of changing their race hatred . Unless you , think that’s racist ? Aren’t we all equal ? It almost suggest that only white hate groups are capable of redeemed altruism that seems to push a very almost racist narrative, of white superiority.

When somebody decides to do what GOD tells us to do: [ 1 John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. James 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: Romans 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Matthew 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. John 3:16 ¶ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ] www.purebiblesearch.com

I’m not saying this guy isn’t a racist, but How is white pride racist And black pride isnt?
Pete is never wrong (5 дней назад)
You have the whole internet in front of you and you need to ask that? White pride claims that whites are superior to all others and shouldn't mix with, as they see it, inferior, races. So, racist. Black power says, be comfortable and proud of your skin color. It makes no claims about other nationalities or races being inferior. It says blacks are the same as everybody else. So, not racist.

I know this isn’t true because the Nazis didn’t hate other races. They just taught you to be proud of your own race. As long as that guy doesn’t racemix it’s okay. You don’t even have to be white to be a Nazi. Here’s a black Nazi: https://youtube.com/watch?v=-dbfXp8_qjo

" HAHAHAHAHA fuck me, it is whipped up by the left wing media.... we will never see eye to eye if you think Trump is the racist and you don't understand how the media/ frontpage controls peoples brain like yourself... it is all a show... Black people need to be proud to be Black, White people need to be proud to be white... and respect is all that is needed.... stay away from news media, it is poisoning your brain...
Pete is never wrong (5 дней назад)
+haha Cheers, I did. If you pop down to "Criticisms and Responses", your quote is examined in detail. "They countered that Black Power advocates were not proposing a mirror-image of white supremacy and domination, instead they were working towards "an effective share in the total power of society." My point remains, however. Without the backdrop of America's racist past, there would have been no need for either The Black Panthers, or Black Power. And the nation has hardly moved forward at all. Race is never off the front page. In addition, racism is the lifeblood of Trump and his administration. Divide and conquer. And the reaction to that from African Americans has been a natural progression. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Lives_Matter Which I just know you'll be a huge fan of....
