White American youth : my descent into America's most violent hate movement -- and how I got out by Christian Picciolini( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As he stumbled through high school, struggling to find a community among other fans of punk rock music, Christian Picciolini was recruited by a now notorious white power skinhead leader and encouraged to fight with the movement to "protect the white race from extinction." Soon, he had become an expert in racist philosophies, a terror who roamed the neighborhood, quick to throw fists. When his mentor was arrested and sentenced to eleven years in prison, sixteen-year-old Picciolini took over the man's role as the leader of an infamous neo-Nazi skinhead group. Seduced by the power he accrued through intimidation, and swept up in the rhetoric he had adopted, Picciolini worked to grow an army of extremists. He used music as a recruitment tool, launching his own propaganda band that performed at white power rallies around the world. But slowly, as he started a family of his own and a job that for the first time brought him face to face with people from all walks of life, he began to recognize the cracks in his hateful ideology. Then a shocking loss at the hands of racial violence changed his life forever, and Picciolini realized too late the full extent of the harm he'd caused. Awe-inspiring, and heartbreakingly candid, White American Youth tells the fascinating story of how so many young people lose themselves in a culture of hatred and violence and how the criminal networks they forge terrorize and divide our nation."--Back cover

I'm the one that I want by Margaret Cho( Visual )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film captures comedian Margaret Cho at home in San Francisco, in her first appearance at the Warfield Theater. The spine of the show is the appalling true story of her experiences starring in the short-lived ABC sitcom "All-American Girl," the first mainstream television comedy built around an Asian-American family. Although her character was based on herself, the network decided to revamp her appearance and her personality. Her kidneys collapse, her show is canceled, and she begins a descent into booze, pills, and self-loathing. Ms. Cho spins lack of self-esteem into comic gold, and the eventual resurrection of her own voice, her own shape, and satisfaction with being the one she wants

Romantic violence : memoirs of an American skinhead by Christian Picciolini( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At 14 years old, Christian Picciolini, a bright and well-loved child from a good family, had been targeted and trained to spread a violent racist agenda, quickly ascending to a highly visible leadership position in America's first neo-Nazi skinhead gang. Just how did this young boy from the suburbs of Chicago, who had so much going for him, become so lost in extremist ideologies that would horrify any decent person? 'Romantic Violence: Memoirs of an American Skinhead' is a poignant and gripping cautionary tale that details Christian's indoctrination when he was barely a teen, a lonely outsider who, more than anything, just wanted to belong. A fateful meeting with a charismatic man who recognized and took advantage of Christian's deep need for connection sent the next decade of his life into a dangerous spiral. When his mentor went to prison for a vicious hate crime, Christian stepped forward, and at 18, he was overseeing the most brutal extremist skinhead cells across the country. From fierce street brawls to drunken white power rallies, recruitment by foreign terrorist dictators to riotous white power rock music, Picciolini immersed himself in racist skinhead culture, hateful propaganda, and violence. Ultimately Christian began to see that his hate-filled life was built on lies. After years of battling the monster he created, he was able to reinvent himself. Picciolini went on to become an advocate for peace, inclusion, and racial diversity, co-founding the nonprofit Life After Hate, which helps people disengage from hate groups and to love themselves and accept others, regardless of skin color, religious belief, or sexual preference."--Page 4 of cover
