The Don and Derek Black Show was a radio program broadcast five times a week from the Lake Worth, Florida-based radio station WPBR-AM. Although WPBR has a large Haitian-American audience, the radio show promoted the ideology of white nationalism. Derek Black is the son of Don Black, founder of the large white nationalist discussion forum Stormfront.org. However, Derek Black's racial ideologies have since been questioned,[1] and he has renounced white nationalism along with an apology to those he believes may have been harmed by his past actions and beliefs.[2] This renunciation has upset his father and other white nationalists and supremacists.[3]

The first broadcast was in February 2010; the featured guest for the debut episode of the program was Gordon Lee Baum, cofounder of the Council of Conservative Citizens.[4]

Don Black had asked Stormfront.org website visitors for $7,500 each month for "basic expenses," and used $600 a week to pay for broadcasting content on WPBR-AM.[5]

Format[edit]

The show ran from 9 to 10 A. M. Monday through Friday.[6] Its opening theme music consisted of Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner and the song "I'm a White Boy" by country musician Merle Haggard. The show covered national and local news.

Black's featured guests have included white nationalists David Duke, Paul Fromm, Kevin MacDonald, Sam Dickson, Jared Taylor,[7][8] as well as former Ohio Congressman Jim Traficant.[9]
