    Would like to know if this forum is black owned or not. If so, this is one of the first forums that charge you to gain access to basic features. I think blacks have enough to deal with debt, racism (yes racism), stress, etc to be charged for this forum. It just makes me mad to see blacks treating blacks like this.

    Yes, this site is Black owned, and it didn't cost you anything to access it, or post this thread.

    Well Luke
    This is Black owned as Destee has said
    This site charges you only if you decide to use voice and video chat
    We only ask for support
    We do not force you to support
    If anything this is the only true black site
    Supported by only blacks and no other
    We ask for Donantions and Support because of this issue
    If we were like a Black Voices or a Black Planet
    We would have many advertisements and campaigns which we do not
    So with that said we charge for soem services because the support is needed
    We charge nothing to read and post and reply

    Premium Membership just shows us that we are being supported in more ways than one as we do love to read the information that is put out and supplied for the knowledge and development of Blacks...The paying member helps you and I be able to continue to learn from others....

    destee, if you want you can delete my first post or delete this thread. I am still upset at BET. For the longest I thought BET was black owned and come to find out they were bought out by whites. What member is the owner of the site I just want to make sure this site is really black owned before I put my money on the table. Excuse my introduction
