Blogosphere: November 2007 Archives
You'll see a lot of the folks listed on my blogroll in this Boston Globe article (h/t Latino Pundit).
These intellectual challenges to mainstream and other viewpoints are some of the opinions Latino, Asian/Pacific Islander-American, and black bloggers are exposing on a growing number of sites focused on social, political, and cultural issues. The sometimes facetiously named blogs range from Angry Asian Man to The Angry Black Woman. Readers can find Latino viewpoints at Guanabee, The Unapologetic Mexican, or Latino Pundit. Those interested in information from an Asian angle head to Ultrabrown, Zuky, or Sepia Mutiny. Sites created by blacks include The Field Negro, Too Sense, and Resist Racism. But often these bloggers discard the handcuffs of their ethnic origins to tackle subjects affecting a range of racial or ethnic groups.Always brings to mind the blogs that are missing. Specifically, Culture Kitchen, Latina Lista, Latino Politico, and Para Justicia Y Libertad. I come across new inspiration everyday, though, and I know I'm forgetting a few, so feel free to give me your own in the comments and I'll put them up.

Bob Dylan - The Times They Are A-Changin'I never thought I'd see the day when I could safely say that the pollsters, the pundits, and the establishment democrat bloggers would turn toward the light of migrant justice. That day has come and it only affirms one of the Doctor Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.'s most hopeful themes.
Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.
The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice
- Doctor Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.
