On the night of this day in 1988, three skinheads, Ken “Death” Mieske, Kyle Brewster, and Steve Strasser drove around Portland, Oregon, with their girlfriends. They come across an Ethiopian student Mulugeta Seraw who was in front of his apartment. Conflict broke out, the outcome of which was the murder of the student. Skinheads battered him with a baseball bat and left him lying in a pool of his own blood. The three were members of the group East Side White Pride and White Aryan Resistance (WAR). They later declared that they killed Seraw “because of his race”. They were arrested and imprisoned. Mieske died in prison serving a life sentence. The student’s father and son filed a civil lawsuit against the head of the White Aryan Resistance (WAR) and won. The head of that organization today still makes payments to the victim’s family.
