Recapping the Stormfront Soap Opera

On this week's podcast, Heidi Beirich and I discuss her eyebrow-raising story about Chloe Black, the former wife of Klan leader David Duke who is currently married to Don Black, founder of the white supremacist website Stormfront. Chloe Black, who has a long movement history of her own, has been fronting for a school meant to lift black and Latino kids out of poverty. What's more, when she insisted to reporters that she was no racist, there was a remarkable unintended consequence — a major, angry backlash from her husband's racist supporters.
