I dunno, all the people who were active for Hatebreed when I saw them were white dudes with shaved heads, tattoos, and cargo pants. Obviously they were white-pride.

This is one of the most ignorant statements I've seen, though unfortunately, since the media knows next to nothing about distorted guitar music, this doesn't surprise me.

From the link: "A previous version of this commentary incorrectly included the band Hatebreed in a list of white power bands. Hatebreed is a self-described "hardcore metal" band. CNN regrets the error." At least CNN put an apology on the article. They should add one more: masking an ADL press release (however well intended the message might be) as a special news article. With this quality of journalism, no wonder CNN ratings are so bad.

I like this user comment the best: "As a music reviewer (and most definitely NOT a neo-nazi, skinhead, or racist) calling Hatebreed a racism-fueled group is absolutely ridiculous. A mere, tiny, apology at the end of the story isn't enough to undo the damage that CNN has dealt to a band that has painstakingly tried to thwart race hatred throughout its career. On top of that, I don't even LIKE Hatebreed. "

The apology is REALLY half-assed. By saying "incorrectly included" they are barely admitting the fact that they put them in there with no research. Say that CNN; say we included this band without doing research beforehand.

Hardly surprising. We're talking about a news agency that didn't even bother confirming a supreme court ruling before reporting on it.

After a bit of googling...apparently they've been getting lumped in with that category for years.
They've seemingly always been unfairly lumped into that category w/ those scumbag bands. Truly unfortunate. If these ignorant morons would take 5 minutes, seriously, that's all it would take, they would see that Hatebreed is about as UN-white supremecist as you can get.

Also in these 5 minutes, said morons could learn that the name itself has nothing to do w/ hatred for a race, it is something that Jamey Jasta considers himself, being a product of rape. Good to see the idiots finally took the 5 minutes.

I remember back in the day when Limewire was the cool thing Smash Your Enemies was labeled as Kill the N******. I was shocked to say the least because I never thought they had any kinda of racial hatred in their lyrics. I looked it up and found it was some 10 year old retard from the bible belt or something who thought he was being funny. Or it was CNN

From what I've read, Lonnie Nasatir oversees a six state region of the ADL in the Midwest. Abraham Foxman is the national director of the ADL.

A quick search of the Wikipedia page of the Anti-Defamation League turns up some interesting information, including this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-de...efamation_suit

Dude, that's just the lyrics to Conceived Through An Act of Violence; Jamey was never singing about himself (he's said it before in interviews, idk if I can find the source right now).

Honestly, this whole article is just like, who cares? The mistake was corrected so quickly, whatever.
