Yesterday I published a piece called “The Four Scariest Things White Supremacists Post About Donald Trump Now.” Find it here.

On researching it, I couldn’t help noticing that the owner of Stormfront, the largest white supremacist site out there, is Don Black. I remember interviewing him extensively for an investigative piece I did for Nightline with Ted Koppel back in 1998. Some of the things he said back then about the potential for the online medium, then new, were prescient. He went on to do exactly what he promised (or threatened) in our piece way back then.

None of our videos from Nightline are online, yet. But I see that it’s in plenty of university libraries. Find it here.

The image below is from yesterday’s piece, still readable here. Yikes.
