White supremacists from across the country gather for a trip to the Met.Breaking News
But first, there was the barbecue, which a Voice reporter was now traveling to after contacting local white supremacists through one of the most active neo-Nazi websites on the Internet, Stormfront.org, which has more than 110,000 members. (About 10,000 are in the Northeast.) The field trip to the Met was being organized by Jamie Kelso, a former Mensa member and New York City native. It was also being promoted by NewSaxon.com, a Friendster-like "online community by whites for whites" that appeals to young and tech-savvy racists. Before mysteriously shutting down recently, NewSaxon claimed more than 50 New York members, some of whom posted images of themselves wearing Nazi uniforms and skinhead regalia.

Thank goodness for freedom of speech in the United States. Reading this article reminds me of the danger of white supremacy. I don't run into white supremacists in my daily life. If we didn't allow bigots to assemble in public and spew their dogma we might all grow complacent to the threat they pose to decent society.
