In 1995, former Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) leader Don Black established Stormfront, the first white supremacist site on the World Wide Web. Since then, accessing the Internet and creating Web pages has become less expensive and technologically demanding. As a result, the number of sites on the Web and the number of people visiting them have grown.
