Abstract:

This study examines the friendship networks of overt, militant racists in America, on the social networking website “Myspace.com”, and places it in context of two sets of theories. One of these theoretical bodies suggest that militant racists are formed in isolation from a larger society, and the other theoretical body suggests that militant racists are formed in highly integrated, heterogeneous social networks. The findings show that militant racists tend to exist in a highly heterogeneous social network, with a higher prevalence of black people in their extended network than the average white person in the United states.
