Background/History

The Aryan fist is a symbol of white power used by hate groups who promote their racist agenda as white pride activism. Note: the laurel wreath appearing in the above graphic illustrating the "Aryan fist" is actually not a racist symbol itself, but rather a separate common skinhead symbol stemming from the logo of a line of British clothing that became popular among skinheads. It is the white fist itself that is the symbol of intolerance.
