In the jailhouse interview with KXLY, though, Tankovich insisted that he’s
not a racist. But what about your Aryan Pride tattoos, asked reporter Sally
Showman. His response? “I know its ties and what other people assume it means

lifestyle with my wife Connie.” Right, and “Kill Whitey” just refers to a
disdain for former Kansas City Royals manager Whitey Herzog. Tankovich says he
intends to get the tattoo removed. “I started regretting this tattoo,” he said.
“I thought ‘Wow, I better get this removed’”/Joel Smith,
