                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
               unmoderated group

This is a formal Request for Discussion for the creation of the
unmoder- ated Usenet newsgroup  This is not a
Call for Votes - do not vote now. To participate in the discussion,
follow the topic on news.groups.  Please do not discuss the group
creation in other groups - it will most probably be off topic there.


There is no appropriate newsgroup for discussion of White Power music,
a phenomenon which is international in scope.

Persons who have an interest in this genre of music have no
appropriate venue on USENET in which to discuss this controversial
topic.  Other groups' topics are too dissimilar, and many of
their participants are in no way receptive of posts about this heated

Some discussion of White Power music occurs on alt.skinheads and
alt.politics.white-power, but is inappropriate there due to the
former's mostly lifestyle-oriented matters, and the latter's largely
political nature.

Interest in a group is indicated by expressions
on mailing lists, and in personal e-conversations with this poster. will prevent the "intrusion" of fans into other,
more vaguely-defined, newsgroups, where they will not be welcomed.
Discussions would necessarily be free and open, due to the topic's
controversial nature.  This group should be unmoderated because a
moderator could exercise undue control over one viewpoint's postings.


All issues relating to the genre known as White Power music, since its
inception until the present, covering all languages and nationalities
of performers, and all themes of pieces. is an unmoderated newsgroup for the entertaining
and enlightening discussion of revolutionary new forms of rock,
country, and other sub-genres having racist/nationalist themes.  Both
supporters and opponents will find the group educational and

Potential topics will relate to the origin, development, and
dissemination of White Power music; to the artistic composition and
performance of the music; and to the personal opinions and perceptions
of those who enjoy particular bands and performers, and pieces.



This RFD initiates a discussion period of at least 21 days.  If a con-
sensus on the charter and the name of the group is reached, a Call for
Votes (CFV) for the group will be issued.  Exact voting conditions
will be outlined in the CFV and the vote will be conducted by a
neutral third party.  The voting period will last from 21 to 31 days
and the group will pass if the YES votes outnumber the NO votes by at
least 100 votes and if at least 2/3rds of the votes are in favor of
the new group.

For more detailed information about the procedure, see "How to Create
a New Usenet Newsgroup" in news.announce.newusers.  You can also find
information about the group creation at the UVV web site at

"The fate of every last White man, woman, and child on this planet lies
squarely on the shoulders of us here today.  Out of all the White
racialist organizations in the Nation, the [National] Alliance, and only
the Alliance has the potential to bring us to victory!"  -- Bob Mathews
