Family drama as son of former Klan leader from West Palm Beach renounces white nationalism

by George Bennett | July 22nd, 2013

West Palm Beach native Derek Black, the son of a former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard and family friend of David Duke, has renounced white nationalism as a “principally flawed” belief that he regrets.

Black, who made headlines in 2008 and 2010 when he tried and failed to join the Palm Beach County Republican Party, outlined his “gradual awakening process” in a lengthy e-mail to the SPLC’s Mark Potok that was published last week on the SPLC’s “Hatewatch” blog.

“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, and others affected…I am sorry for the damage done by my actions and my past endorsement of white nationalism,” Black’s e-mail says.

“He had to go to the Southern Poverty Law Center, of all people, who hate us, who hate me,” lamented Derek Black’s father, Don Black, who runs a white nationalist website.
