You’re a skinhead. I’m black. Why am I your friend?

Steve Drown
Uncuffed producer Brian Thames with Gary Pedersen, a self-described skinhead.

From the series Uncuffed:

Gary “Midnight” Pedersen is a skinhead. He’ll tell you that himself. But he’s also a man who values family and friendships. I sat down to chat with Midnight about some of his lingering supremacist views, and what it means to have one black friend in the world: me.

If you take two seconds to, like, talk to someone, you might see something different.
