To promote white supremacy and anti-Semitism, Black operates Stormfront, the most popular on-line meeting place among white supremacists, which he founded in 1995. In this capacity, Black enables thousands to share their views, exchange ideas, and plan events. In addition to serving as a vast discussion forum, Stormfront also hosts other extremist Web sites and Internet radio shows. Black hosts one such shows, on which he disseminates his personal views about Jews and minorities.
In addition to operating Stormfront, Black spreads his views by attending and speaking at extremist gatherings. In November 2008, Black attended and participated in a meeting convened by anti-Semitic and white supremacist figure David Duke. In July 2008, Black was a guest speaker at a meeting in Orlando, Florida, organized by the Confederate Hammerskins, a hardcore racist skinhead group. Black also attended a February 2008 conference convened by the white supremacist publication American Renaissance. Black is a frequent attendee at American Renaissance conferences, which take place every two years and include a large grouping of anti-Semites and white supremacists from around the world.
To ensure the future dissemination of his hateful views, Black has been grooming his son Derek to become a prominent figure in the movement. As a young teenager, Derek Black operated a Stormfront page dedicated to kids. Don Black regularly brings Derek to extremist events, where he has performed music and given speeches. Derek now co-hosts a radio show on Stormfront, and in August 2008, he was elected to serve as a Republican committeeman in Florida (though the Republican Party unseated him).
