Censoring Beyond Black and White

Updated on October 18, 2014

The Internet: A Sea of Ideologies

The Internet is a vastness of ideologies and movements that can either enlighten or anger. It has provided many with a steady platform, which may not be available otherwise. It’s a fact that some information may offend; but that is the price we pay for wanting more information at our finger tips. Hate speech in any form is dangerous and tasteless, especially when it incites violence. However, for the social media giant, Facebook to censor Beyond Black and White for its stance of Black women deserving quality lives via the choices in with whom they chose to marry and procreate with is astounding and heartbreaking.

Passive bullying and terrorism at its worst!

Christelyn Russell-Karazin, found of Beyond Black and White had amassed over 37k page likes. Her message was very clear: Black women deserve quality lives by expanding their dating and mating options. Some found her message offensive and began passively bullying Christelyn. They accused her of spreading anti-Black men messages. This is far from the truth. They mistook BBW’s message of holding all men accountable and responsible for their actions, particularly toward men who procreate outside marriage. Too often, the faces of out-of-wedlock births are Black women who have procreated with Black men. What’s so horrible about raising the bar for these men and women? How is it hateful to require a Black man to be responsible for his children? Shutting down the original BBW Facebook page is akin to passive bullying and passive terrorism!

Raising the relationship stock for Black women

Very few ethnic groups of men allow their women to be ‘baby mamas’ outside of marriage. Although the message is spreading everywhere, the Black community is still lagging far behind. Nonetheless, there is hope. With messages and support pages like Beyond Black and White, hopefully, many Black women will recognize their value and only procreate with men who have the women and children’s best interests at heart.
