Thunder uses the lightning bolt image on trucks still, they must be paying homage to the SS/Nazi/white power scene⚡️⚡️

I dunno maybe casue it is racist they have a lot of white tranny skaters. Plus iron cross logo. Indy is biker raciss.

And who cares? you not gonna buy thier shit or something now?

Indy is kinda bro now, I see people wiith indy shirts an Im like, dis mufucka dont skate.

Can we start on own Jim Jones skateboard island? I be leader. No cool aid this time though.

This right here but I fucks with Indy regardless. Although lots of monster and metal mulisha in Simi Valley broism too. I like to see the white girlswith pink ruff Ryder bandanas in the back pocket.



They usually have these haircuts

So people who wear Indy shirts would like to speak to a manager?

That's the "married at 18, single mom at 22" look.

Serious question, what did you type in to google to find those images?

Also, I would argue the use of "1-8" could be more correlated with naziism than the iron cross.
and... we're off!

This got me thinking, as the other day Ed Templeton posted photos from a pro-trump rally and one of the marchers was wearing an Independent jacket.?  To non-skaters, does the Indy cross come across as a racist symbol??  Would you wear an Indy shirt in Trump's America??  The Manolo/Ben K thread made some points, like don't look like a nazi if you don't want to be lumped in with nazi's.?  Does the same hold true for Indy gear??  Yes, it's a different cross, but still... Curious to hear the Pal's thoughts.

It's official, I'm now 100% embarrassed to be associated with skateboarding if this is what we've come to.

I don't worry about it but the reasoning I've heard is kind off goofy.


"It's not racist, it's because bikers used to wear Iron Crosses and bikers are gnarly!"

Ok, then why did bikers wear it?




It reminds me of this sandwich place that used to be around here called Chink's Steaks.

"It's not racist, it's just the owner's nickname because he had really slants eyes,"

Bikers wore stuff for shock factor back in the "day" (60s and so on) and that included iron crosses,swastikas etc... nowadays most bikers want to look like Jason Jessee or what they see on Sons Of Anarchy

That's just simple code though. Pretty much all gangs use it.

I think you just inspired a new truck design. Tie-dye, leopard print...white hoods

Also speaking of racism, Grosso's First Look/Sal's comment is making me wonder if Skatopia has a racist vibe. Has anyone been there and witnessed/experienced racism?

Don't clown yourself, this is the maintstream opinion in skating right now, so obviously it bothers me if i think its stupid.  Actual racists are a fucking fringe group, retards that go out of their way to see racism in everything are not at all a fringe group right now.   you perfectly proved my point when you referred to me as "you guys" as if pointing out the stupidity of racism witchhunts automatically makes me an "alt-right" person or a trump voter or a racist.   imbecile.

Why did you mention Trump and Alt-right then? if it has nothing to do with it? seems like a strange thing to include.

Early 90's black kids at my school were not having Indy gear. I watched my friend try to explain it and got punched about 3 words in. That was the only time I pondered why they used the Iron Cross, and never wore any.

And I'm not saying Indy is a racist company, I'm asking, and it seems like others are confirming, that the logo can be misinterpreted for something it's not. It's almost the perfect alt-right logo. "Independent," anti government, self reliant, with a tinge of mild racism in the cross.

OMG INDY NEEDS TO TOTALLY REBRAND AND CHANGE THEIR LOGO NOW BECAUSE SOMEONE SOMEWHERE MIGHT ACCIDENTALLY LET THEIR POLITICAL BIAS CONFUSE THEM INTO THINKING THAT THEIR CROSS LOGO IS ALL 14/88 HITLER GAS EVERYONE AND KILL THE JEWS NAZI THEMED AND THIS IS REALLY SERIOUS STUFF AND WARRANTS IMMEDIATE CHANGE BECAUSE GOD FORBID SOMEONE GET THE WRONG IMPRESSION WE CAN'T LET THIS STUFF SLIDE GUYS IT'S TOTALLY IMPORTANT!!!!

Some of you have obviously been raised on so much political correctness, it's made your entire worldview based on finding new ways to be offended at every turn (or, to be a champion for those who aren't offended yet, but you're SURE they will be if they ever see that darned Indy logo!)

This shit's getting cornier by the minute.
