“White Power” and “Good Night White Pride” stickers

This was the first photo I took in Berlin when I was there in August 2012.  Although simplified, the cross and circle reminded me of the “white pride” symbol I’ve seen online from white supremacist groups like Stormfront and others.

The sun cross symbol is often associated with neo-Nazi groups, and the Anti-Defamation League refers to it as a hate symbol called the Celtic Cross or Odin’s Cross.  The ADL has a Web site called Hate on Display, which I’ve been using as a reference to figure out what’s going on in certain stickers I pick up.  The ADL makes a good point, however, when it states:

It is important to note that the Celtic Cross is used widely today in many mainstream and cultural contexts.  No one should assume that a Celtic Cross, divorced from other trappings of extremism, automatically denotes use as a hate symbol.

By weird coincidence, one of the last pictures I took on that trip to Europe was of this “White Power” sticker in Brighton, England.  I have not yet been able to figure out what the red letters stand for on the bottom right.

And in response, here is a “Good Night, White Pride” sticker that I picked up in Berlin in 2009 with the same sun cross symbol.

    The stickers at the bottom are “ŁKS” which stands for Łodzki Klub Sportowy- ŁKS Łodz, a Polish premier league football team.

    stickers like the last one “good night white pride” are counter-productive.

    we don’t want the whites to think that they can’t be proud, they just need to be tame. in a few generations, we will make sure there is not country in the world with a white majoraty. then it’s kill the whitie time just like my cousins do in south africa, so we will do here in europe!! 🙂
