Sneakers: Web battle continues

Censorship in cyberspace was
the topic of choice last night at
\Vorsham Theater, as two free-
speech advocates discussed the
negatives oflnternet regulation.

Time magazine writer Declan
McCullagh andjudith Krug of the
American Library Association
spoke to a crowd of about 80 peo-
ple at the theater about the now-
defunct Communications Decen-
cy Act of 1996.

“There is constant chatter
about the information superhigh-
way coming to our doorstep,”
communications professor Don-
ald Case said as he introduced the
speakers to the event.

The event was part of the
semester-long First Amendment
celebration sponsored by the
Scripps Howard Foundation and
the School of Journalism and


McCullagh and Krug played a
large role in challenging the act,
which the Supreme Court voted
unanimously as unconstitution-

The act is dead, but McCul-
lagh said other obscenity and

public and educational use ofthe

Kentucky, for instance, is con»
sidering a bill that would restrict
unsolicited e-mail messages,
restrictions that would limit
libraries. Krug said.

Forty—seven percent of libraries
provide public Internet access,
and another 37 percent are plan—
ning to do the same within the
next year, she said.

Both Krug and McCullagh
talked about the dangers posed
by these filters, which McCul-
lagh calls “censorware,” which
block sites that contain objec—

tionable words in their Internet

Although these filters block
sites like www.playhoy.coin,
some block political organiza-
tions such as the Ileritage Foun—
dation and the National Organi-
zation for \Voinen because their
addresses contain objectionable
words such as breast, sex and

Some activists have demanded
that public access terminals at
libraries have these filters
installed, and Krug and McCul-
lagh take exception to that idea.

“My role has never been to
keep information and people
apart," Krug said.

Krug and McCullagh said they
also see other flaws in attempts to
regulate the content of the Inter—

"People outside the US. really
don't care about what the White
House wants," Krug said.

Restrictions cannot be
enforced but would have a chilling

effect on Internet culture, McCul-
lagh said.

Another proposed avenue for
Internet censorship was a rating
system, similar to the Clinton
administration's idea of the V-
chip for television sets, to regu-
late how tnuch content a child

Two problems arise from this
proposal. First, while there are
only a few television networks to
monitor, there are potentially mil-
lions of Internet sites.

Second. the rating system
excludes news gathering informa-
tion to allow anyone interested to
view what is going on in the

In a medium where, as McCul—
lagh said, “anyone can be a pub-
lisher," making a difference
between genuine news and not-
so-genuine news is impossible.

“There's no way the Internet
cannot be munled if the politi—
cians of the world have their way,"
McCullagh said.

Scott said that Cawelti wants his 'I‘As and stu—
dents “to find alternative ways to new a story."

liven though he has a tremendous amount
of experience, Cawelti encourages feedback
from the students anti 'I‘As, and expects others
to disagree with him.

culture, Cawelti is able to make his experiences
helpful to today’s students.

Love, respect locus oi Bsu play

‘C olorblind ’
teaches family

By Jennifer Metcalt

Respect and love within the
modern black famil summarize
the focus of “Colorb ind,” a musi-
cal sponsored by the Black Stu—
dent Union that played Saturday
at the Singletary Center for the

The production paid tribute to
two important sources of inspira—
tion to the author, Lisa Persley:
her husband Henry and close
friend Maryann Manley-Lewis,
both of whom died within the last
six months.

The performance started with a
memorial service for these indi-
viduals. Manle -Lewis’ daughter,
Pamella D’Pel a, who plays Julia
on “The Young and the Restless,"
spoke about her mother’s influ-
ence in her life.

Several friends of the Persleys
talked about Henry.

Persley, a Fayette Coun '
Postal Service worker and sel -
described “family‘oriented”
mother of two daughters, said she
ho es the play will change atti-
tud)es about race and the family

“I would like somewhere in life
to see everyone come on one
chord everyone to love each
other. We should look at each
other so that we can love each
other no matter what color our
skin is," she said.

The play focuses on a youn
black woman’s relationship wit
her mother.

LoJo, the daughter, resents
her mother because of her darker
skin. Knowing that she could ass
for white, Lojo shuts out her am—

start a dancing career. Meanwhile,
her mother becomes an emotional
wreck, unaware of where her
dau hter has gone.

en her mother learns of her
whereabouts and comes after her,
Lojo tries to run off again.
