Update on What’s Happening at BlackCommentator.com

Dear BC Readers,

If you’ve read recent issues, you know we lost the use of our group email and subscription programs when we were forced to move to a new server. In spite of losing key pieces of the website, we kept publishing, stayed in touch with you as best we could through Twitter and Facebook. Now, we’re partway back to normal.

Thanks to a good friend of BC, our group email program is mostly back up and running. Did you receive an email from BC letting you know that this issue was ready? Be sure to add [email protected] to your email “safe list” or Contacts to ensure we don’t end up in your SPAM folder. And if you didn’t receive an email, click here to send us a message and we will get you on the list. You will receive a notice with each new issue of BC.

We will never sell or share your email address with anyone.

We’re still working on the subscription program, and hope to have that ready for you in a few weeks. Meanwhile, we are getting by with contributions from readers like you. There is a significant cost associated with getting this project done and with a large portion of subscription revenue gone, we’re scrambling. So many people are out of work or otherwise struggling that we’ve hesitated to ask for help, and yet, now we must.

If you can help, now is the time. And if you can contribute $40 or more, your contribution will convert to a subscription just as soon as subscriptions are available again. Please keep in mind that under IRS rules, your contributions, while needed very much, are not tax deductible. So please click here to contribute; we appreciate any help you can give.

In Solidarity and Peace,

Peter Gamble, Publisher
