Recruitment by Extremist Groups on the Internet  

by Beverly Ray  

Recruitment efforts of white extremist groups on the Internet were 
examined using qualitative methods. There is no evidence of a 
concerted effort to target children at popular locations where 
children are active on the Internet. Most propaganda writings are not 
well written and persuasive. White extremists attempt to attract 
children with text, MP3 music, and games, but their efforts are not 
well organized and are more reactive than aggressive. Findings are 
reported for the uses of the Internet, methods employed, and how 
technology of the Internet contributes to these activities.
