Growing up I was friends with a lot of skinheads.Â And one thing I learned about them was that no matter how not racist they claim to be, they are still not the most PC group you will ever be.Â All the funniest racist jokes I know come from my time spent hanging out with a DC skin crew.Â Â This Is Enlgand is about a bunch of skins that are conflicted about race.Â The group gets split up between two factions who are both trying to convince a very cute 12 year old boy to join their cause.Â The anti-Pakistan skins and the guys who are just trying to get drunk and fuck shit up.
This review is not really going so well right now.Â I don’t know why.Â I had some ideas here, and now I am just writing poorly.Â Â The last sentence in that paragraph is not even a sentence.Â So I think I’ll just make some quick points and go back to sleep.
1. This movie was good and you should see it.
2. The day I saw it I was listening to Jimmy Cliff before I left, then the movie was filled with reggae and ska, and then at a bar later they were playing two-tone ska.Â It is just sort of amazing that I listened to that much ska/reggae in one day.
3. My biggest problem with skinheads is that they exist to fight.Â The whole thing is about drinking and fighting.
4. Q: What do you call a black guy on a bike? A: Thief.
5. Q: Why are racist jokes so short?Â A: So theÂ dumbÂ rednecksÂ who tell them can remember the punchline.
Lastly, my favorite racist joke of all time is:Â Q: What do you call a ______ (insert type of people) with a PHD? Â A: ______ (insert racial slur for said people).Â It is so universal because it works for anyone.Â Yay!Â And here is some footage of original skins who listen to reggae.Â I’m out.
