The Black Hundred (sometimes The Black Hundred), was a Russian nationalist movement in Imperial Russia in the early 20th century. The group strongly supported the Tsar and the Russian Orthodox Church. It has also been accused of persecutions of minorities and involvement in pogroms. Associated were paramilitary groups, sometimes known as "Yellow Shirts".

One former member of the Black Hundreds, Boris Brasol (1885-1963), later emigrated to the US. Brasol later befriended Henry Ford, who gave Brasol a job on the Dearborn Independent. Brasol also helped in the production of The International Jew. [1]
