First Black-owned Search Engine---PASS IT ON!
As some of you might know, a dynamic young African-American Internet duo,
Rob and Roz Rucker have created a brand new search engine and portal site
called The BlackWebPortal.com.
The site is designed with African-Americans i! n mind. Right now their
viewer-ship is the low thousands. They need to cross the hundreds of
thousands barrier to have any real chance of keeping this site online at
all. Some of you are thinking...why does it matter?
It matters because BlackVoices is wholly owned by the Tribune Company;
Black Families by Cox Communications; BlackPlanet.com by an Asian
company; and Soul City HBO by AOL-Times/Warner.
BlackWebPortal is the only site that is 100% African-American owned. The
BlackWebPortal needs all of us to start emailing our friends, relatives,
etc., all over the world to start using the resources at the
BlackWebPortal. The important thing is that they need help getting the
word out about this site. Let's help this site out by visiting and
seeing what they have to offer. So please tell EVERY! ONE abo ut the Black
Web Portal. Don't just bookmark it for yourself. Spread the news!
This is a new millennium! We must begin truly supporting black technology
efforts in the same way we cheer on our movie and athletic stars. If we
don't, they'll end up having to do the same as other black web sites by
getting assistance from elsewhere, thereby losing the original flavor
PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD!
