In this technology age, someone on the World Wide Web can obtain illegal prescriptions, buy tobacco underage, buy and sell illegal guns, and perform many more hazardous actions. Hate group websites on the Internet are one setback that seems to cause severe problems. According to www.Hatewatch.org, of the almost thirteen million websites on the Internet, there are currently 450 to 500 “hard core” hate sites and numerous problematic sites on the Internet; other sources state there are about 800 “hate speech” sites. At the time of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, only one hate site was reported. The explosive growth of the World Wide Web caused an enormous development in hate sites, and this number of hate group websites continues to increase at a rapid rate. From just 1996 to 1997, a twenty percent increase occurred, and between 1997 and 1998, sites grew sixty percent. Of the almost four hundred seventy four hate sites, 100 were neo-Nazi, 42 Skinhead, 81 Christian Identity (a racist religion), 12 black separatist, and 112 a mixture of hate-based doctrines and principles.
