The natural instinct of writers on tech websites seems to be to slam Blackbird for playing the race card. They scoff that it's just Firefox and act mad, or at least uptight, that black people think they need a black people browser to do their black people things.
Who cares? The browser is free. It's not anything amazing, but I would say it deserves to exist more than a lot of shitty open source browsers. At least it has a stated purpose and isn't just the result of some dork's computer science class.
Once you install it you can use it to do all of the same boring shit you do with Firefox or Internet Explorer. Heck, I even used Blackbird to visit white supremacist website Stormfront.
And I found a thread about Blackbird.
And I read the white power thread about Blackbird in Blackbird. Take out the names and white power avatars and it was indistinguishable from the regular tech blogs reacting to Blackbird.
And holy shit did I feel smug and superior to those guys.
I was hovering at two or two-and-a-half stars, but after that I give Blackbird a solid 3/5 rating.
BLACK LIVES MATTER!!! NOOOOOOO!!! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? YOU HAVE CREATED A MONSTER, AN ABSOLUTE MONSTER!
