You lot all talking about skate Nazi's and think they are a gang of white supremacists are idiots.  The whole point of skate Nazi is 100% skateboarder,  skateboarding or nothing else.  So best try think before brandishing a whole skate scene as racist.  Also the swastika being a symbol of skate Nazi was not being used in a racist manner it was to reflect the skate Nazi 100% mind.  Also the swastika is punk it shocks people it doesn't mean you believe in it.  Sid vicious wore swastikas as did the rest of the sex pistols,  Tony Hawk listens to the sex pistols does that mean he is a Nazi by association?  Or just a Nazi supporter.  I don't agree with JJ's comments in that interview but he was obviously going through a period in his life where he thought he was the shit. No excuse but he is an idiot,  not a racist
That "trying to be edgy and shock people" is the dumbest excuse and been said on almost every page in this thread. But yeah I'm sure that's why he's cool with  that white power band too he's trying to shock everyone 100% Nazi so fucking edgy dude

Still havent mentioned about tony hawk being a racist cos he listens to these bands. Boycott him. In fact why dont you lot boycott skateboarding altogether?? Anti-hero use the abreviation 18 which was nazi code for adolf hitler and code for many neo nazi groups including C18 boycott them? All you lot are is a bunch of internet trolls constantly trying to find something to have a winge up about. Go out and skate for fuck sake fucking loser kooks!

https://www.theodysseyonline.com/why-80s-uk-punks-wore-swastikas

The first line of that article refers to the Sex Pistols as an 80s punk band...so perhaps not the most credible source

The time difference keeps me from skating right now. 

1-8 is dumb for AntiHero to use but is not an overt or widely used nazi symbol.   Everyone in skateboarding knows itís used just as an abbreviation of their brand particularly because of the Jewish owner. 

Equating tony hawk listening to Sex Pistols who wore nazi stuff at one point (which was tasteless but did not reflect their personal beliefs) to supporting a band of white supremacists is a dumb argument and I think you know that.   I hope you know that.

Ok, but if your a skateboarder and you wear a swazi then that does reflect your personal beliefs?

I guess the difference is that Jason Jessee has worn swastikas over decades overtly and subtly amongst other white power symbols and the Sex Pistols were a bunch of stupid teens dressed by Malcolm macLaren to evoke and court controversy and grew out of such adolescent displays once they retained some agency and matured.   But sure, keep on not getting the difference after 35 pages of this...

Why the fuck would i read 35 pages of dumb net nerd bullshit. Suns out, im going skating. chow
Youíre going skating? Doubt it, sick sign off though! Really feel like you drove your point home, huh? You donít deserve skating, snap a femur


im probably lying

this whole clusterfuck really reminds me of why I was disappointed in California when I finally stayed there a few months in the 90's, after years of fantasizing about it over in Europe, like it's some skaters' paradise.... it's a nice place but culture is pretty non-existent (for a dude coming from Paris) and race relations are fucked.

what bums me out even more is I actually liked Jessee's part in that Cons vid Purple.

also I'd like to hear Dressen's take on this. He's from the same generation as Jessee and still rides for SC, is he bothered by the whole thing?

Im just surprised he linked me to an article that specifically states swastikas worn today, for whatever purpose aren't debatable.
only in skateboarding is putting an adult in a position where they might have to actually work for their income "ruining their life"  ::)

Wagons have circled.   Seemed like whole Cons team was chilling at Jesseeís house today via Delas IG - even KA and Al D

For real, a shitty boy band, the Sex Pistols and Tony Hawk in one post? Hope he landed his nightmare flips without primoing.

how is everyone saying this is fake? how is it you are saying he's changed in 48hrs. This guy is a product of his environment. It fucking sucks that he went down this whack rode but he survived and changed years ago. Anyone that has met him and talked with him would see that. Too many of you have your tiki torches lit and ready to burn it down. What did JJ do to you??? At the end of the day people fuck up all the times. say stupid fucking shit and might be real pieces of shit. But at what point are they allowed back? Is it right to hide behind a keyboard and bash someone you really don't know? i think that's just as bad as saying the shit he said. At least he took time to apologize wether you believe it or not doesn't matter. We are all faceless keyboard trolls. If you have a real issue with JJ hit him up about it but hopping on instagram and saying useless shit doesn't help any of this. Stop being apart of the problem and start being apart of the solution. JJ is trying...what are you doing???

Ensuring this thread stay at the top of SLAP boards to send the message to his sponsors that the mass majority our diverse community of skaters don't back what this dude is was about. Hoping that a larger conversation about equality can be had. Hoping to educate folks that the only way we work through this is to keep it on the forefront of everyone's minds to discuss and face our hard truths. Hoping to educate folks that by letting his apology stand as the end all be all, "nothing more to see here" is not fair to the minorities (or everyone) who've backed these brands for the same number of decades JJ was sporting his racist/anti-semite gear.

I dont hate JJ at all. I want JJ & his sponsors to really face the truths behind these images & positions they've kept for far too long. It's time to educate and empathize in skateboarding.

Uber disrupted the Taxi industry
AirBnB disrupted the Hotel Industry


Most disruptions in history are later viewed as progress...

JJ is hopefully disrupting the Skate Industry.

Both of the brought forth an alternative to the traditional businesses. what alternative to skateboards or their associated products do you wish to substitute?

stop trying to act like swastikas are punk rock. its a white power symbol. period.

every punk scene i know in the 1980s and 1990s was constantly kicking nazis out of the scene.

the skate nazis are a bunch of white boys patting each other on the back and saying white power shit. miss me with that.

i am not down with skate nazis, neo-nazis, or any other type of nazi. period. them dudes are all trash.

fuck the skate nazis and everyone who loves them. jason jessee and jay adams are proof that shit is racist.

swastika stuff really is chalked up to shock value. Punk rock, 70s skate culture, Old chopper style. They were everywhere.

these people were idiots and you are using very primitive forms of subculture to legitimize the casual use of a symbol that stands for genocide for your batshit insane neighborhood friend. in other words, just because the first "real" skaters happened to be fucking kooks that drew swastikas, doesn't mean it's ok now. also who even knows about that? the heritage of skateboarding is not common knowledge among society, i doubt regular people emphasize or even care about it or why some idiots that skate emulate the worst parts of redneck-biker lifestyle.

as for destroying his career, the guy is basically, like andy roy, a dude who could never work a normal job and who gets by by being famous in skateboarding and car culture because of his eccentricities alone, not quality work. imho his art fucking sucks, his bikes are mostly unable to be ridden, he skates the same but worse than 20 years before and the famous only white member in purely mexican carclub was always the standard rebuttal to the nazi stuff, not convincing. the dude is basically on skate welfare at this point, as most legacy pros, there's no career, his career is standing besides younger skaters in photos so they can insta it and say what a "legend" he is. that is all he has to do now, no fucking career there. maybe the dude should have learned how to actually put together a bike that rides, i don't know.

also, defending the whole redneck white power biker thing basically as in "it is what it is" is fucking weak.

you shouldn't have made the effort to create an account, but since you're here, as another poster said, try running a swastika in israel or germany and see how far you make it with the "swazis are just edgy, duuuuude, it's 70s skate culture" excuse.

People trying to even defend and supporting this kook are idiots! This is a great example of entitlement. Heís surely thought through how donning swastikas on his gloves, bikes, jackets etc must make POC and Jewish folks feel. Now heís been called out is giving some bullshit apology and people are eating it up? Nah, no way. Playing dress up to be edgy or not this idiot needs to do better than that half assed apology.

Longtime lurker, first time poster. Never felt compelled to create an account until I saw this thread, but I'm glad I got a username out of it. Good work, everyone. It's good to see people do their best to stomp out racism in an industry that never gets held accountable for anything.

Damn this thread really took off. So much good stuff. I still find it interesting that the industry is constantly saying fuck slap itís nothing but old bald losers that donít skate anymore yet this thread and this thread alone was the sole reason for a Jason Jesseís public apology for an interview that came out ages ago. Good shit guys! 

...... Also Chow? Really?
