We need more of them on Newgrounds. What shall we do to recruit moar black guys and gals(OK just guys) to Newgrounds? I mean, "Everything by Everyone" to me really means "Everything by a bunch of white guys and Luis". So....How can we try to recruit more black guys to Newgrounds? Do you guys think we need more black people on here?

Discuss.

I'm black. I really don't think it should matter if the majority of users on this site are white.

why does ethnicity on an internet forum/website matter?

Makes us think to ourselves "This website I visit isn't racist -- there are black people on it! Thus, I am not racist!"

Basically, the equivalent of saying an insulting black joke, but then covering it up by saying "I have friends who are black -- I'm not racist!"

I just proved I'm racist by including only black people, and not people of other race. I apologize if that offended you.

We can always show them this flash as healthy campaign video. Or maybe this one...

I think Newgrounds is well diversified anyway.

Even if you do bring more diversity to Newgrounds, it would still be mostly white people. Newgrounds is a website created and popular in America and 79.8% of Americans are white so even if you got more black people to join you wont make much of a difference.

I'd much rather have users come that genuniely enjoy the site and respect all other users background whatever it may be.

And the times of disrespect/insults are over normal matters of opinion or preference things that don't really matter like always.

Full bloods in one specific tribe are rare indeed, but they are still around. Most in my region are a mix of tribes like myself being quarter Comanche and quarter Navajo.

And to the OP, just because nobody talks about their race on the BBS, doesn't mean there is a lack of a certain ethnicity on NG. Who do you think provides all the wonderful hip hop music in the Audio Portal, for example?

No, that wasn't racist of you. And I'm not offended.
Oh yeah, I'm also not hispanic, or asian either. Guess my ethnicity. :P
