While much of the world is still high from the recent election, many Americans are raging with disgust of our nation’s first Black president. Some of those less than happy campers include Don Black, a 55-year-old former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard who despises Mr. Obama, according to CNN.com. His Web site, which was started in 1995, is one of the oldest and largest hate group sites and received so many hits that it crashed after election results were announced. According to Southern Poverty Law Center, which released its annual hate group report on Thursday, the number of hate groups has grown by 54 percent since 2000. The study also identified 926 hate groups were active in 2008. That’s a 4 percent jump, adding 38 more than the year before.—BB
