@TheKunk - never been a real fan of metal, whether it's WN related or otherwise. I'm just proud of my heritage and like to show it with my choice of decor in my bedroom. Furthermore, with regards to my avatar, American History X is a hollywood produced anti-racism film. After all, Derek ends up feeling bad for his actions and beliefs.
Now that we're on the topic of that film, I've always been curious about something. I am from Canada, and am not too familiar with the laws in the States, but isn't there a law surrounding ones right to defend their property from burglars? Was it legal (ignoring the morality of the action) for Derek to kill those two Crips trying to steal the truck his dad gave him? One of them was armed with a pistol. Would the court take into account that in defending himself he chose to curbstomp one of them instead of shooting them?
Proud of your heritage?
That blatant excuse always comes up and its not like your uneducated or trying to fit into that "I live in the suburbs yet its cool to put a confederate flag on my car because that's what country folks deem cool attitude." There are plenty of less volatile ways of displaying your sympathy for your "supposed heritage" like displaying the state flag from which your family established from. I see so many white kids these days patrol my diverse city with this kind of mentality when they have no clue what it personifies. Im betting you're part of the whole "south click" because it seems cool nowadays doesn't it? To go to country music shows with your Ford Bronco truck drinking beers and wearing cut-off jeans? Just give it up.
You dont defend yourself by curbstomping someone's face on the side of the road? There's a difference between protection of property by lethal means and by doing so in an inhumane manner.
