A Story About Change

A remarkable story about race and change. I was struck by who helped Bryan Widner, a former skinhead, remove his hateful tattoos, and I wanted to see/hear/read more in the story about why he changed his beliefs.  The story is in two parts. Read it here and here. Check it out.

    What I find interesting is that the path a young man takes into a violent gang is almost always the same, no matter who the man is or what the gang. At its root the gang offers the young man the chance at belonging that he didn’t have anywhere else, and the violence is almost always fueled more by self-hatred than anything else.
