African American Political Pundit Credentialed and will Blog LIVE at the Democratic National Convention


OK, my email box has been on full blast over he past few days. Thank you everyone for the congratulatory emails.


I'm a man of faith, and my mother taught me to always thank God for the blessings you receive. So today I want to thank God for the blessing I received. I am appreciative and proud of the fact that the Democratic National Convention staff have chosen me and other members of the AfroSpear (black blogger think tank) and the larger Afrosphere (black bloggers around the United States & World) to cover one of the most significant events in over 400 years of African American history.


A special congratulations and shout out to
Jack and Jill Politics, Pam's House Blend, What About Our Daughters?, culturekitchen, Dallas South blog, Oliver Willis, RaceWire who are also credentialed and will also blog at the convention. Like you I commit myself to providing the best coverage possible.

Factoid: In 2004, the DNCC credentialed about 30 blogs to cover the Convention in Boston - the first Convention to credential bloggers. Recently, the DNCC announced that 55 blogs focused on state and local politics were selected to be members of the DemConvention State Blogger Corps.

AAPP: I'm still concerned about the lack of
diversity in the State Blogger Corps, and will discuss it (giving my own opinion and not the opinion of the afrospear black bloggers think tank) in an upcoming post.

Again, I'm proud to have been selected, with afrospear bloggers and the over
120 bloggers for this historic event. I believe the DNC still has some work to do in order to truly make things right with the larger black bloggers community, and larger black democratic constituency. I will talk about possible constructive corrective action in my upcoming post. I'm sure black bloggers attending the convention and those activist interested in a constructive conversation about diversity, we will keep the lines of communication open. We can meet and resolve this issue, as America works to take back the White House.

NOTE: Altogether, the DNCC will credential more than 120 blogs for the Convention and many more individuals will blog the Convention via credentials issued through the U.S. Congressional Press Galleries.

The complete list of blogs credentialed blogs are listed at:
DemConvention.com/credentialed-blogs or check it out below:

To all the bloggers selected congratulations.
