White Supremacists Target School Youth With White Power CD

Racist skinhead Bryant Cecchini, better known as Byron Calvert, is sponsoring "Project Schoolyard II," a campaign to place 30,000 CDs with anti-Semitic and racist lyrics in the hands of school children. Calvert, like many other white supremacists, hopes to use racist and anti-Semitic rock music as a recruitment tool and source of funding.

Calvert once worked for Panzerfaust Records, a now-defunct white-power music company. Through Panzerfaust, Calvert produced the first volume of Project Schoolyard in 2004 with the goal of printing and distributing 100,000 CDs.

The new CD is priced at 30 cents, and potential buyers are encouraged to distribute it free to children. Though the CD cover is purposely devoid of obvious white power symbols, "Project Schoolyard II" features songs by racist bands, including RAHOWA (which stands for "Racial Holy War"), Brutal Attack, and Skrewdriver, a British white power band popular in the 1980s and early 1990s. Featured songs include "Race Riot," "White Power," "Some Ni—ers Never Die," and "Aggravated Assault." In a song called "White Revolution," RAHOWA sings "So listen, slimy jew…You're gonna wish you were never even born when I get my hands on you…"
