Tallahassee, Florida - March 17, 2011 --

Some members of the legislative black caucus are still upset over remarks Gov. Rick Scott made several weeks ago to the caucus about growing up poor “in the same situation as you guys.” The black sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha received an invite from First Lady Ann Scott to a mansion reception on Tuesday evening, said Rep. Geraldine Thompson, D-Orlando, a member of the sorority. “The organization opted instead to have the reception at City Hall because of the insensitivity shown to members of the black caucus when we met there for lunch,” Thompson said. She will be holding a press conference with Rep. Mia Jones, D-Jacksonville, on Wednesday to highlight issues that impact black Floridians, such as funding cuts to historically black colleges and universities.

I have mixed feelings. I think if they can get to his wife they stand a chance to influence his views. I think I would try to first the wife out to see if she is real.

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>
