Robert Stacy McCain’s Neo-Nazi friend, Bill White, loses $545,000 in Civil case
Hateful words can carry a high price — $545,000 in the case of racist rabble-rouser William A. White.
That was the amount a jury awarded in damages against White on Friday after hearing testimony about how he directed racial slurs and veiled threats against five black women who filed a discrimination lawsuit against their white landlord in Virginia Beach.
As the commander of a now-defunct neo-Nazi organization in Roanoke, White became so angry when he learned of the lawsuit in May 2007 that he fired off letters to the women that began: “Dear Whiney Section 8 N——-.”
It was a tactic that White — described by one hate watch group as perhaps America’s loudest and most obnoxious neo-Nazi — employed for years against countless targets before he was jailed in 2008 on charges of making racially motivated threats.
