A Former Skinhead Speaks Out Against Hate

Frank Meeink, author of Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead, will share his personal story at Eckerd College on Thursday, September 7, 2017.

Frank Meeink was a skinhead at age 13. By age 17, he had his own cable-access TV show, “The Reich” and he was roaming the country as a skinhead leader and Neo-Nazi recruiter, with gangs that would beat people indiscriminately. At age 18, he was finally arrested and convicted of kidnapping and beating a member of a rival skinhead gang.

While in prison he befriended men he used to think he hated, men of different races. After being released from prison, Meeink tried to rejoin his old skinhead pals but couldn’t bring himself to hate those whom he now knew to be his friends.

Now a noted speaker, author, and founder of Harmony Through Hockey, Frank’s life stands for tolerance, diversity, and mutual understanding in racial, political, and all aspects of society.

A Former Skinhead Speaks Out Against Hate is free and open to the public and will take place on Thursday, September 7th at 7:00 p.m. at Eckerd College, Fox Hall. Please RSVP by calling The Florida Holocaust Museum at 727.820.0100, extension 301.

 

Presented by Eckerd College. Sponsored by The Florida Holocaust Museum.

New York (AP) –  Three out of every 10 gay or bisexual men in several cities in the U.S. South have been diagnosed with the AIDS virus, three times the national rate, according to a study about how common HIV infections are in metro areas.

The study echoes other research that reported higher rates of HIV diagnoses in the South, in urban areas, and in gay and bisexual men, but it is the first to look at how common HIV diagnoses are in these men by city.

Ladyfingers: You’re a creep

Flattery: We’ve all experienced it in some form or another, either with the receipt or delivery of it. Initially, I wanted to say that a wise person once said flattery is the biggest compliment, but a quick Google search showed that I might have mixed that up with some other saying by a person who was cool enough to have someone put their thoughts between quotation marks. I digress. You see, the thing about flattery is that it can be used as a disguise. This is when an individual may say they are trying to flatter you, but really the words they use do nothing of the sort. And they know it.

Now, first let me start by saying I am not referring to the occasional compliment by a stranger; those are lovely, and I think everyone deserves to hear nice things about themselves once in awhile. I’m talking about lines that could be found on page 27 of The Creepy Man’s Guide to Scaring the Shit Out of Women (working title). There is no charm, there is no grace; there is only the reassurance of my sexuality by the shutting of the steel trap that is my vagina. I wish there was room for commendation on creativity, but there is none of that either. These moments I’ve experienced have left me baffled. I am almost always left with my jaw dropped, followed by a borderline-hysterical laugh that distracts Sir Creeps-A-Lot, while my eyes feverishly look for my closest savior. This response is not working; this cannot be my only solution. Let me take you on this small journey, and maybe we can all figure one out together. If not that, then at least we can laugh and cringe in unison, like synchronized swimmers in a pool of unsolicited sexual brickbats. Heads underwater, legs in the air.
