Boys and Girls Aid SocietyAs the founder of the whites-only European Kindred prison gang, David Patrick Kennedy has a reputation as a violent racist who commands respect from fellow criminals.But Monday afternoon, Kennedy told more than 100 Madison High School students that he is not proud of his life and that no one should look up to him.
"I've had to step back and ask myself, 'Why am I getting nowhere with my beliefs, even though I've got the EK behind me?' " Kennedy, a convicted felon who has served more than nine years in the Oregon prison system, told five classes that gathered in the school's library.
Kennedy is questioning his life as part of a residential drug addiction treatment program he entered three months ago.The program is run by Volunteers of America Oregon, the state chapter of one of the largest nonprofit social service organizations in the country.The school trip was arranged by Greg Stone, the director of the Men's Residential Center where Kennedy now is living.

"David is doing very well, even though his background is more hard-core than many of our other clients'," Stone said.

Before answering questions from the students, Kennedy talked about learning racist beliefs from his father, a motorcycle gang member who taught him that "might makes right" and who murdered his mother before his eyes in a jealous rage.
Kennedy said his father's friends introduced him to alcohol and drugs at an early age, leading to a longtime methamphetamine addiction he now is trying to shake.After dropping out of school, Kennedy repeatedly was arrested and convicted of crimes ranging from robbery to assaulting an elderly woman during a home invasion burglary.
While serving time at the Snake River Correctional Institution in Eastern Oregon, Kennedy founded the European Kindred.The gang spread outside the prison system when members released into the community recruited new members and continued committing crimes.
"When we formed the EK, one goal was to get together and help people on the outside.Instead, we got together and planned more crimes.When you get a bunch of criminals together, that's what usually happens," Kennedy said.
But now Kennedy says he wants to associate only with people who are clean and sober and looking to be law-abiding citizens.A major motivator is Kennedy's 3-year-old son, whom he might not see again if he goes back to prison.He and his girlfriend also are expecting another child later this year.
"My father taught me racism, and I want to break that cycle with my son.I want to teach him violence is a no-no and don't judge people," he told the students.

After being arrested last November for violating parole, Kennedy and his parole officer agreed he should enter the Men's Residential Center.

After living at the Men's Residential Center for around three months, Kennedy said he wishes that he had received such treatment earlier in his life.As he told the students, the program has helped him realize the futility of viewing the world as a racial battleground where only the strong survive.
Although Kennedy told the students he is still proud of his Scottish-Irish heritage, he said he is getting along better with some of the black clients at the center than some of the white ones.
Kennedy also said the center is teaching him constructive alternatives to drugs, including just talking honestly to other people with the same issues.
"This is the first time I've really had help with my addiction.This kind of program should be available to everyone with a serious drug problem," he said.

Kennedy told the Madison students Monday that he is working hard to complete the program, reunite with his family, get a job and put his former life behind him.
"If you always do what you've always done, you always get what you've always got.I don't want that to happen to me anymore," he told the students.

"I would say the European Kindred, in my opinion, is a white man movement," said founder Dave Kennedy.
In 1998, Kennedy was serving time at the Snake River Prison in eastern Oregon.He was 31 and could hold his own, but he said they younger, white teens were instant targets.
"A lot of people saw these guys coming to prison, tried as adults, and were sexually abused," said Kennedy."And the majority of them were white.So, we decided to form something to stand against it."
To offer protection, Kennedy established the European Kindred.The EK shield often included Swastikas, but Kennedy claimed it is not a neo-Nazi or hate group.He said the EK is about pride.
"If you can call someone a racist for studying their heritage, I guess they're all racist," said Kennedy."We must secure the existence of our people and the future for white children.That's what it is based on."
Once the EK spilled out of prisons and onto the streets, Kennedy said it has gotten out of control.
When asked if he feels guilty at all for being a founder of the group, Kennedy said, "I do, for what's happened to it out on the street.But in prison, I think those guys are doing what they're supposed to do.It's a dog-eat-dog world in there."
Police said the EK may serve a purpose in prison for its members, but that it has only created a culture of violence in the outside world.
Kennedy cut his ties with the EK for good a year and a half ago.He is on parole, in drug treatment and building a new life.
He warned other EK members to get out before they go down.
"It's kind of a shame because a lot of these guys are good guys and I'd like to see something better for them," said Kennedy.
