Supremacist site advertised in SF school paper

Officials at a San Francisco high school have pulled all remaining copies of the student newspaper after inadvertently printing an ad inside for a white supremacist Web site.

The ad published Friday in Lowell High School's newspaper appeared to be for free music downloads. But the Web address it included, www.victoryforever.com, linked to a site that calls for a restoration of “white heritage.”

San Francisco school district spokeswoman Gentle Blythe said the newspaper's faculty advisers never checked the Web site in the ad, which cost $30.

The site itself had been changed recently from a seemingly harmless page offering music.

An anonymous e-mail to news outlets claiming credit for the ad said similar ads have been placed in student newspapers nationwide.

On Sunday, California bore the brunt of what meteorologists referred to as a bomb cyclone and an atmospheric river, a convergence of storms that brought more than half a foot of rain to parts of the Bay Area, along with high winds, concerns about flash floods and the potential for heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada. Much of the Bay Area was under a flash flood watch on Sunday, with the National Weather Service warning of the potential for mudslides across the region. (NOAA via The New York Times)
