No mention of (in the UK) Oi subculture, the first wave of skinheads (yes, there were anti-racist/anti-fascist ones in the beginning) and how they were influenced by black musicians, or the musical impact of Jamaican rude boys in the 60s/70s.

PFFF THAT'S A STRETCH, punk isn't black or white, there's just as much whites as there are black, I'd argue more if you count the UK scene and most west coast punk and hardcore bands like 45 Grave, Dead Kennedys, Circle Jerks, Descendents, Black Flag (except for Chavo). Of course you also have Death, Bad Brains, Void too.
