PHOTOS: Keystone State Skinheads and other racists at April 19 Mumia Demo in Philly
Fight White Supremacy | 04.22.2008
As detailed in a flyer released before the April 19 Mumia demonstration in Philadelphia, and an article at the anti-racist One People's Project website, there was a counter-protest across the street from the Liberty Bell during the April 19 Mumia demonstration, that was organized by the racist “Keystone State Skinheads” group (KSS) and other fascists.
The KSS are staunch advocates of Mumia's execution. Photos on the KSS website feature KSS member Keith Carney at the Maureen Faulkner book signing last December at Geno’s Steaks, an establishment now famous for their “This is America, Speak English” sign on the front window. Carney was recently released from prison after his conviction for assaulting a black man. He now attempts to present a public image that is less overtly racist by replacing racial slurs with phrases like “welfare mom” and “drug-dealer,” as illustrated by the shirt he is wearing in the photo at Geno’s, which reads “Kill Your Local Drug Dealer.”
Check out the 2002 photos of Jason Tankersly in York PA with the Nazi flags. He is standing next to Keith Carney in the April 19 photo of Carney. Also, Tankersly is featured in this National Geographic special about racist skinheads.
It's tough for these guys to now pretend to not be racists. How are swastikas not racist?
