Real skinheads are not racist!! It originated with the reggae (of the Jamaican immigrants) fusion with mod (working class kids) in 60s uk. Many early skins were Jamaican, and many skins world wide are of every race and culture under the sun.
Palm trees and high waters–blend into so-cool LA mid-1960s style, featuring dashes of skinhead, mod and ivy league looks. Red socks and tight rolled jeans, nothing but smooth. These handsome young dudes are chillin' outside their neighborhood community center, and later get a lesson in bottle rockets from an elder. Photographs by Billy Ray. via The Weejun
