Stormfront Poster Boy Derek Black Renounces White Nationalism

Derek-Black-WPBR-14-Capt-a-thumb-250x188.jpg
Derek Black, the white supremacist poster boy, former radio host, and son of Don Black (who founded the West Palm Beach-based white nationalist organization Stormfront), has had a change of heart. In a four-page letter published Wednesday by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the 24-year-old junior at New College of Florida, who was often dubbed the "next David Duke," describes his previous belief system as "principally flawed" and his renunciation of white nationalism as a "gradual awakening process."

"I acknowledge that things I have said as well as my actions have been harmful to people of color, people of Jewish descent, activists striving for opportunity and fairness for all," he writes. "There is no way to advocate for white nationalism but by arguing that minorities pose a threat to our supremacy... It is an advocacy that I cannot support, having grown past my bubble.

"I do not believe advocacy against 'oppression of whites' exists in any form but an entrenched desire to preserve white power at the expense of others," he continues. "I am sorry for the damage done by my actions and my past endorsement of white nationalism."

The letter follows a message posted by Black last November on a New College student forum, an incident also recapped at the time on SPLC's blog. Intended for student eyes only, the post implied an evolving political position and disclosed minor harassments he was facing on campus, like "the occasional middle finger in the library." He disavowed Nazism and denied membership in the Ku Klux Klan, but failed to distance himself from white nationalism.

"I was not ready to go public," he writes of the post. "A large section of the community I grew up in believes strongly in white nationalism, and members of my family whom I respect greatly, particularly my father, have long been resolute advocates for that cause... I was not prepared to risk driving any wedge in those relationships and I did not believe that was necessary. The number of changes in my beliefs during the past few years, however, has amounted to a shift that I think needs to be addressed."

I must first condemn the Junk Journalism on the part of Erica Landau.  This article is based mostly upon opinions & personal feelings.  Now, with that aside:  The only "inherent flaws"  are with society's acceptance for African American Pride, Hispanic Heritage, Women Power, and every other Special Interest.  But, it's strictly forbidden for any White Guy to express his own best interests.   Also, Derek's comment is flawed because he doesn't account for organized attempts to flood ALL western nations, and ONLY western nations with massive immigration.  So, his comments would only be relevant to USA policy without accounting for the Worldwide epidemic.   MOST IMPORTANTLY, let's examine the SPLC.  Their only goal is to further Jewish power.   Initially, Zionists planned on controlling the world through violent revolution.  But instead, the Frankfurt School secretly attacked from within.   Their revises plan was to deteriorate society spanning generations.  And, that's exactly what they've done.   But, there's one "Racist" group who's NEVER targeted by SPLC.  They should attack racist Jewish communities who staunchly keep minorities OUT.   or, Jewish Owned Businesses who solely choose fellow Jews for upper management Jobs.  Or, Jewish private schools who celebrate their Jewish identity.   Should I continue on?    Also, thanx to annavallone8 for raising a great point. We're the only Race who tries to help others.  GOOD CALL.

The White Race has one inherent flaw: many of them help those who hate them. Apparently Black has this flaw in his genes as well. Hopefully he does not reproduce.

Cool story. Having never listened to his radio show, I assume that he said some terrible things, but to change one's world view, especially when all your family and friends disapprove, is impressive.

@smdrpepper  actually, your comment proves that mainstream media has been steadily brainwashing us.   You're quick using the term "racism".  and, you hoarded your own comment with a Thumbs-Up.     But ultimately, your showing that "racism" is a term only meant to attack a specific group of people.    While African Americans and every other group staunchly express their own best interest, I'm called a "Neo-Nazi" for showing personal concerns.   Now, PLEASE google search "The History of Political Correctness".   This will show its origins.   So, you see; the media really is attacking one specific racial group.   it's not my imagination.  The proof lies within The Frankfurt School.
