Many of you are aware that the original Beyond Black & White Facebook fan was disbanded by a group of haters who organized to unrightfully flag and report all of our posts so that we would be booted over sheer quantity of complaints. We now have a new page, but we are STILL under attack. People are coming to our page SPECIFICALLY to intigate fights so that they can run to report hate speech to Facebook. Make no mistake, these people don't want to silence the fan page solely, they want to silence our entire message. They DO NOT want us to talk about how black women should maximize their options dating interracially. They DON'T want us to talk about the victimization and exploitation of black women by perpetrators in our OWN communities. They DO NOT want us to talk about the rampant out-of-wedlock rate and how it leaves black women vulnerable and mired in poverty. They DO NOT want us to talk about how some segments of the community are hell-bend on black women being the mules of the race and to never desire and deign to rise above their station.
The only hope we have of protection against these attacks is to insulate ourselves in communities that we OWN. Facebook is a "rental," and we can be evicted at any time, for unjust cause and false accusations. With our forum, no one can come in a take away the community, support, personal stories and essential coversations we have in our community. We can not let them win. First, Beyond Black & White, and then watch all of your favorite black female empowerment pages be attacked and disappear. Make no mistake--we're all in danger.
We did an estimate of costs for the forum...approximately $1,000.
Domain name and hosting: $41.88
Puchase of forum software: $250.00
Graphic Design and layout: $300.00
Labor cost of web person: $60.00 per hour
So I'm asking for your help to keep our space sacred. Any little bit helps. Let's go!
