I don't get it.
Are we fund raising to get the black one fixed
, the black one removed, or more black ones added?

I think they should start sales of derivative items, like educational "Match the Penis to the Vagina" cards ... like 'Snap', or 'Pin the Tail on the Donkey' for the Web 2.0 generation.

It does not surprise me that there isn't a lot of black Dickapedia --
its editors are most-likely 98% white. Dudes in general, no matter how
academic the setting, are still a little put off by other dudes' junk.
And your average white wiki editor probably reacts with not a little bit
of insecurity at the idea of how they measure up to the African phallus,
all grand and glorious in its brown-ness. So of course, if they need to
show a penis, its going to be white. Hell, of those 1000 images, more
than 400 are probably the same dick. Frank's dick.
Did that sound ridiculous? It should have -- because any time we're
arguing about the absence of "dicks of color," the conversation has
clearly taken a turn for the absurd. To me, if we're talking about an
encyclopedia for everyone, that anyone can edit, then yeah, its going to
degrade a little toward the guttural. And that means cocks. Pu**ies.
Probably some anal beads and not a few gimp masks.
