theCHIVE will be going dark tomorrow to protest SOPA/PIPA

chive sopa logo theCHIVE will be going dark tomorrow to protest SOPA/PIPA

Tomorrow from 8am – 8pm EST theCHIVE will be joining the internet to protest SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act). The proposed bill, which will be voted on next month, is censorship at its very worst and the passing of this bill has far reaching negative implications for yours truly here at theCHIVE as well as many other sites, big and small.

Just because theCHIVE is going dark tomorrow doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit theCHIVE. It’s never been more important, in fact.

Tomorrow, theCHIVE will transform itself into an online petition; you can easily email your local representatives to articulately express your outrage at this Draconian bill. There will be recap and open discussion of SOPA in the DAR when the blackout lifts.

    Race is only an issue anymore because black people make it one. Get over it allready nobody cares anymore. None of us had anything to do with the slave days and now yall have the naacp, and a whole lot of other organizations that give yall different opportunities and you still complain! I thought “gangstas” were supposed to be tough not a bunch of crybaby pansies. How about this one…what about the white boy college fund?! This is why we shluldve left them in africa.

      You forgot to mention that the naacp and have those other organizations are the epitome of racisim today.

    Just come on out and say it, if the black girls look good I dont mind looking at them I love all women. But I dont think we should just put any girl on here to be equal. Thats bullshit!!! Im sick of blacks and mexicans acting like there not treated however. Life is hard and unfair to all. So quit the pitty party.

    Pretty shitty if you ask me

    “the chive is going dark”? Its amazing what a few allegations of racism will do. Maybe just include a few minorities once in a while. No need to go extreme.
