lulions, the brown vs the board of education began in 1951 in farmville, va.  a student named barbara johns organized a protest over the separate but unequal schools in prince edward county, va.


Brown Case #1 Briggs vs. Elliott (1952) Summerton, SC
Brown Case #2 Davis vs. County Bd. of Education of Prince Edward County, VA
Brown Case #3 Gebhart vs. Belton, Claymont, DE

Was the Davis case the same case for Barbara Johns you referenced?  One of the students in the Briggs vs. Elliott (Nathanial Briggs lives in the adjacent town (Teaneck, NJ) to me.

i think so.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
