"BlackPlanet has sort of become a base camp for African-Americans to explore the whole Web. Rather, the user's age, income, education and optimism about technology more often shape their choices. Older people, regardless of race, might use the Internet just to send email, while younger people of all races are more likely to be more active, surfing and creating Web sites and using the Internet for other purposes.
