I got this picture also in svg-file format (good for printing on posters or tshirts in a copy-shop), if anyone is intereseted in having the original file for printing or further works, just write!


S.H.A.R.P. - [S]kin[h]eads [a]gainst [r]acial [p]rejudice.
I am not(!) a racist, same as my skinhead-fellows. For anyone who knows the history of skinheads will know, that true skinheads can never be racist...

Well, i always have problems when people ask me that, because i can't really explain it in one or two sentences. Back then, a Skinhead was a (poor) worker from the working class who wasn't ashamed of where he came from or what he was. He was just proud of what he had and who he was. They loved Ska and Reggae music (played often by blacks - so racism was never and still isn't a thing). For example: i drank with german, polish, irish, english, scottish, spanish and chinese skinheads yet and we've been friends from the first minute we've met. Theres something magical, it's like a whole big family... You can't "become" a skinhead, either you got the spirit or you haven't...
Sorry if this didn't bring you any further, i just can't get myself short about the skinhead-topic :D

Nice work!
It's a tragedy how the whole skinhead image became associated with neo-nazis. This would be a tough sell for a lot of people who think they are one and the same.

why? you mean skinheads in generel or just the story behind that picture? im not a racist, same as my fellows.

the culture behind us skinheads is never meant to be racist, if anything, we're against racism. thats why the way of life as a skinhead should be S.H.A.R.P. (Skinheads against racias prejudice).

there are some right-winged "skins", i know. but they are no part of our culture and if you know the history, then you know, that true skinheads can never be racist.
