The History Channel has a very successful series titled Gangland, in episode 08 – “Hate Nation”, they discuss several violent crimes committed by skinheads some dating back into the 1980’s. Here is a portion of a write up regarding American Skinheads. “In the late 70s, embraced by the emerging punk rock scene, skinhead culture began to spread to other countries – including the United States. By the mid-80s, American skinheads numbered in the thousands. As in England, their views encompass the entire political spectrum. However, they become notoriously known – and feared – for their most racist and violent subculture, the neo-Nazi skinheads.”
Most of the episode was dedicated to the most violent and stereotypical “news-worthy” people. Using almost exclusively outdated footage. However, at the end of the episode they show several photos of the KSS and supporters at the Anti-Immigration rally held at the Pennsylvania State Capital building’s steps September 1, 2007.

The program stated that today’s skinheads are trying to gain success by merging with society, making us “more of a threat.” We feel that our club is not the same as skinhead organizations of the past. That we are taking major strides to break this negative stigma.
