FIRST BLACK OWNED SEARCH ENGINE

The BlackWebPortal is the only site that is 100% African-American owned. 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. 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. The site is designed with African-Americans in mind.

African Americans, Latinos Dependent on Libraries' Internet Access Ten percent of Internet users get access through a library, with African Americans and Latinos being more likely to be in this group, according to the U.S. Commerce Department. Sixteen percent of Latinos and 19 percent of African Americans have no other access at home, work or school, while 13 percent of whites have a similar dependence on libraries. diversityinc.com


Did you know that the United States has more computers than the rest of the world combined; however, there continues to be large gaps in Internet-use rates among households of different races and ethnic origins with blacks and Hispanics experiencing the lowest household Internet use? Many who do not have Internet access at home turn to schools and libraries for this service.
Additionally the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) estimates that approximately 40 percent of students across the nation cannot read at a basic level. Almost 70 percent of low-income fourth-grade students cannot read at a basic level, and almost half the students living in urban areas cannot read at a basic level. NAEP
