WEST PALM BEACH, Florida - He is the suspected shooter, a 40-year-old army veteran, the man investigators believe opened fire just before worship service at a Sikh Temple in the Oak Creek community of Wisconsin.

Wade Michael Page was known for playing "white power" rock before he was shot and killed by police Sunday. We're now learning Page may have also been a poster on StormFront.org, a website preaching White pride worldwide.

"That is unfortunate and it does hurt our cause," said StormFront.org founder Don Black. "Almost everyone on Stormfront has condemned what he did. And unfortunately there is nothing we can do about it."

Black, a known white supremacist, acknowledges his distaste for non-white immigrants in America. "We think Sikhs belong back in India, Mexicans back in Mexico. We believe this nation was founded on white European principles, by white European settlers, and it should remain a nation that reflects that heritage and those values."

But Black also says in no way does he condone violence.

"If I had any idea he might be contemplating something like this, I would strongly discourage him," Black told 10 News Monday afternoon. "We don't think these people deserve to be killed, particularly the Sikhs."

Instead, he concentrates on his own mission, preserving the white race in America. "We love our own people," insists Black. "We're promoting our heritage, our values, just as every other race has the right to do."
