Three men belonging to a "skinhead" gang were arrested and charged in the beating death of an Ethiopian immigrant a week ago, police in Portland, Ore., said. Kenneth Mieske, 23, Kyle Brewster, 19, and Steven Strasser, 20, were charged in what police said was a racially motivated attack on Mulugeta Seraw, 27, who had just been dropped off by friends in front of his home. The friends, who tried to intervene, suffered minor injuries.

Two years ago, this easygoing, proud-of-being-tolerant city suffered a blight on its reputation when a gang of white youths killed a black man with a baseball bat. Now, Portland is experimenting with ways of teaching its children not to hate. The effort--which the City Council will be asked next week to expand--involves pupils from four economically and ethnically mixed middle schools. The youngsters are given a taste of how it feels to be discriminated against.

Tom Metzger's war has come. But unlike the street skirmishes he has preached for years as part of his Southern California-based White Aryan Resistance (WAR), the battlefield is on the fifth floor of the Multnomah County Courthouse here. Trial opened Monday in a lawsuit by a group of Deep South civil rights attorneys who contend that Metzger and his son John should be held accountable for the beating death two years ago of a black man by a gang of young, white radical "skinheads."
