        Correct. This link and button will be removed. We will try to provide rss feeds and we are currently investigating this.

                    "Segregation" is an interesting word. Segregation enforced through the legal authority of local, state or federal regulations or common law was truly a horrible chapter in the history of the United States and greatly hurt African Americans (and others) in many ways. What the original post implies is that if African Americans or other groups form spaces where they can get together then would they also like it if there was forced or legalized segregation again. Obviously, the answer is "no." All people want the freedom to congregate and otherwise share common interest. I doubt any group would like to be forced to use second class segregated facilities. Blackbird was started as a way to aggregate African American content on the internet through an easy tool, because in general African American content was somewhat difficult to find. Creating a community online is not something new and really the hallmark of the social web. The challenge as we look to reinvigorate Blackbird is to continue to evolve tools and services that help people form communities and get information. We are looking to do the same for other communities once we refine the tools and services for Blackbird. What we think may be the most disarming and jarring thing about Blackbird to some is that innovation was targeted at the African American community first. To have come out with a custom browser for sports fans or for the nation of Brazil would have not turned heads, but to do so for Black people... Everyone knows whitebird is satirical. To play along is the highest complement. Right back at ya... We welcome dialog. This thread has been retained, others have turned ugly or inappropriate and have been removed. I am sure this debate will play on. There are people still questioning whether BET or Black magazine or book series are "racist" or not. I think it will take continued education and an understanding of the fact that African Americans have a cultural identity that extends beyond our skin color.
