Skinheads

The skinheads symbolize hate and a rhetoric of white supremacy. This is a term used to describe the white supremacist group to which Turk Bauer belongs. The term refers to the fact that they once shaved their heads as a means of standing apart as a group, but they ended that practice as a means of blending in with their communities. Hate and violence are commonplace for members of this group. They hate anyone who is not white and anyone who chooses an alternative lifestyle, such as homosexuals. They do not approve of government rules. They are in favor of having the freedom to own and carry guns.
