The mother of a reputed white supremacist accused of manufacturing pipe bombs to assault black and Latino drug dealers said Friday that the charges against her son are "completely untrue." Eric Lord Jeffrey's mother, Yvonne, said that her 21-year-old son does not hate minorities and is himself part Latino and American Indian. The swastika and the letters WP--supposedly an acronym for "white power"--tattooed on Jeffrey's chest are simply body art, she said.
