Former Neo-Nazi Removes Swastika Tattoos After Meeting Black Woman

Colorado resident Michael Kent recently sat down at a tattoo parlor in Colorado Springs to have his swastikas covered up. Follow reporter Michael Koenigs @MikeOnABikeABC for more profile pieces. Kent, a former neo-Nazi, credits an African-American parole officer named Tiffany Whittier with helping him to see beyond skin color and changing his views about white supremacy. "If it wasn't for her I would have seeped back into it," said Kent. "I look at her as family." Whittier, 45, even inspired Kent, 38, to take down the Nazi flags he had hanging in his living room and replace them with smiley faces. "I'm not here to judge him. That's not my job to judge. My job is to be that positive person in someone’s life," Whittier said. Added Kent, "When you wake up and see a smiley face, you’re going to go to work and you’re going to smile."
