Dear Jonah:
Thanks so much for your work in creating and maintaining this resource.
In the document "BLACKS.in.US.html", the following paragraph contains a sentence which appears to have some words or possibly a line missing:

"Concerning the comparison you have drawn in your letter between the situation of the Baha'i community in Iran and the African-American people generally, it is noteworthy that, while the plight of the Iranian friends is grievous, it is also the community is organized around the divine Teachings and empowered by the Word of God, the effects of victimization on the Iranian believers is likely to prove, in the long view, less devastating than the effects of that which has been inflicted upon the African-Americans."

The phrase, "... it is also the community is organized around divine Teachings ..." is the problematic one for me. Of course, the gist of meaning is still pretty clear, but there is clearly something wrong with the sentence as it appears here. Probably a typographical error.

Warm regards,
Gavin Reed
