This Is England: our skinhead obsession continues

We are not racist. We do not condone racism. We (hopefully just like you) do not like racist things. Unfortunately for us, one of the most bomb styles from the past, oh, 50 years or so, has been hijacked by a movement. So unfair. I'm sure more people would adopt this style if they didn't think it would be like saying "I'm a skinhead and I hate ____". 
But anyways, before the disclaimer, This Is England is a pretty good movie. It's an emotionally charged film about what happened to a lot of directionless and probably fatherless boys in working class towns in England during the 1980s. It shows how the National Front could indoctrinate and brainwash so many. Blah blah blah. Let's be honest. I mostly like it for Woody. I like Milky's style too. 

Dem boots.

Yeah it's hard not to just love the style in that movie. And the music!! I was shocked to hear Return of Django by the Upsetters, along with some great Toots and Maytals songs and Warhead by UK Subs. Why can't culture be like that these days? I mean the unified ska-loving skins, SHARPS, not racist boneheads.
