  1. Great idea and great information on the sites included here. I’ve just started blogging and am thrilled to see our community representing itself on the web,rather than leaving it to others to interpret. I would love to become a member of this collective, particularly as i better get the hang of blogging in general. Please let me know what your process is. I’ve already linked a couple of the sites that I frequent to my own, and i hope to add many more as we go along.

    Peace,

    DP

  2. Hey DP,

    Thanks for the love and encouragement.

    We will certainly be an interactive collective. You are welcome to comment directly on any of our posts and join in the discussions and debates once we get started. Also, we will have a process by which you can email us, via the above email address, any submissions and essays for consideration to be posted on the main page.

    You will also be added to the AfroSpear Nation blogroll.

    Much respect!
    The AfroSpear Circle.

  3. Congratulations, Asabagna! This is great! I’m adding this to my “Welcome to the Afrosphere” blog list!

    Thank you kindly

    Conversations

    P.S. We would be honored if we could also be added to the AfroSpear Nation if at all possible.

If you need anymore information or if there is a formal process for requesting this, please let me know.

    Thanks again for this wonderful site.

  21. Much Love Afrospear, I learned of the commuted death sentence of Kenneth Foster, from “therealready.blogspot.com”
    Thank You for caring

    That Girl Boo

  22. Just curious – a thought came to me and I’d like to hear what U think. I support Afrospear in that I come here from time to time to read & periodically, I even comment. I have a post linked to Afrospear (http://capcity4privateyes.blogspot.com/2007/08/black-men-blogging.html) and engage frequently with Afrospearians, like PlezWorld. My question: is there a level of support from the AfroSpear to others who support you, but choose not to be active Afrospearians?

    Thanx!

  23. ” My question: is there a level of support from the AfroSpear to others who support you, but choose not to be active Afrospearians?

    Thanx!

    mark bey: Of course we are trying to build a stronger and better black world.

  24. i’m not understanding what that reply means mark bey….

  25. “i’m not understanding what that reply means mark bey….”

    mark bey: Sorry about bieng vague cap, it means their will be as much support for you and your causes as their is for anyone else who calls themselves an afrosphere blogger. Alls you gotta do is let folks know what causes or issues you are working on and I bet you may even find out that their is a blogger listed as an afrosphere blogger who is working on or interested in the same cause you are.

    Yes we will support you, we consider you a part of the Afrosphere, we consider all black bloggers a part of the Afrosprhere.

  26. Hmmm, Mark Bey, I guess my greatest “cause” is maintaining my sanity as a Black woman as I attempt to relate with others in this world. Is that AfroSpear-support worthy? thanx!

  27. Indeed it is CAP I am trying to maintain my sanity as well. Black folk treating each other right and supporting each other is always worthy in my opinion.

  28. thanx, Mark Bey! I’ll add the AfroSpear logo to my page…feel free to add my blog to the AfroSpear list;-)….thanks!

  29. I’ve been following the collective for a while as the editor over at racewire.org.. but now that i’ve got my own spot in the Black blogosphere (Write What I Like), i hope to become a member. You’re already on my blogroll…

    Thanks for your work.

  31. Checking to see if you woud promote a post on my College Preparation Blog: “Planning and Preparing for College (Scholarships, Internships, Etc) located at http://www.ctherd.blogspot.com .

    Welcome and you have been added!

  37. Love the site. Beautiful graphics.

    But as an aside. Is it just me? Or does any one else think that the jail time that Marion Jones received was excessive?

    Especially, since the state’s attorney didn’t ask for her to go to prison.

    I’m not making excuses for her, but being stripped of her records and the public disgrace she has to endue IMHO is enough.

    For one, I don’t think elite athletes are role models for kids. The average sports fans will never be able to come close to what these athletes achieve.

    These athletes are able to push their bodies beyond what may be humanely possible. They ignore pain, fatigue and hunger all in their quest for strength, endurance and speed.

    Then we act shocked when they look for ways to shave 1/10 of a second off their qualifying times.

    Good early morning on the East Coast. I am very much interested in participating in the discussions and utilizing the blog format to cover stories and issues in the Black community.

    I have recently started my own blog and would love to engage in the many topics that are overlooked in the mainstream media.

    My site where I can be reached is: http://www.blackpoliticsonline.com

    That said, I use to work for BET.com and I spent 10 months reporting and producing news for the web site as their associate news producer. It’s amazing but I don’t even watch the programming on the station anymore. I’ve been upset for years about the television content that’s beamed into homes around the world each day.

    Anyway, please come by and let’s have a discussion!

    For the Trib et al( U know all the news in USA fit to print in a hard copy newspaper) you gona be covering the porno $$$ from L. A. benefiting the Clintons, and the in-kind stuff from hustler Porno pusher Flynt…?
    The best Political blog in AMERICA has been keyed in, too, & is on to the $$$$ put in Bills’ Foundation kitty, when Bill flies around on the Corporate jets of the Canadian mining dealer to foreign lands…Uranium deals, and big strategic stuff
    As you may recall, Clinton gave a pardon to Marc Rich. and the money flew into his off-book kitty(Foundations etc)
    See;

    Amazon.com: Metal Men: How Marc Rich Defrauded the Country, Evaded the Law, and Became the World’s Most Sought-After Corporat..

    When Marc Rich calls at 3 a. m. from Switzerland, will Bill take the call or Hillary ? 2 for 1, standing by her man, while he picks out more INTERNS, near the White House, the experience so much in historical archives from 2 for 1. You reporting from Laramie, you going to quote Simpson, on Marc Rich’s attorney, Scooter Libby, whose law firm got about a Mil ( ,or more $$$$- big bucks) to traffic in beltway influence for Marc—METAL MAN–Rich.

    The Clintons and the L. A culture of corruption………..

    Hillary Clinton with Peter and Andrea Paul (Courtesy Hillcap.org)
    Paul claims Rendell directed various illegal contributions to the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign and failed to report to the Federal Election Commission more than $100,000 given for a Hollywood event for Gore’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee in 2000. McAuliffe, Paul says, counseled him in two separate meetings to become a major donor to Hillary Clinton to pave the way to hire her husband. Paul asserts top Clinton adviser Harold Ickes also directed him to give money to the Senate campaign but hid that fact in “perjured testimony” during the trial of campaign finance director David Rosen.
    Rosen was acquitted in 2005 for filing false campaign reports that later were charged by the FEC to treasurer Andrew Grossman, who accepted responsibility in a conciliation agreement that fined the campaign 35,000. Paul points out the Rosen trial established his contention that he personally gave more than $1.2 million to Clinton’s campaign and that his contributions intentionally were hidden from the public and the Federal Election Commission.
    Rosen, accused of concealing Paul’s in-kind contribution of more than $1 million, was acquitted, but Paul contends the Clinton staffer was a scapegoat. Paul points out chief Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson told the Washington Post he was aware of the donation, yet he never was called as a witness in the Rosen trial.
    Paul contends his case will expose “the institutional culture of corruption embraced by the Clinton leadership of the Democratic Party,” which seeks to attain “unaccountable power for the Clintons at the expense of the rule of law and respect for the constitutional processes of government.”
    The complaint asserts Clinton has filed four false reports to the FEC of Paul’s donations in an attempt to distance herself from him after a Washington Post story days after the August 2000 fundraiser reported his past felony convictions. Clinton then returned a check for $2,000, insisting it was the only money she had taken from Paul. But one month later, she demanded another $100,000, to be hidden in a state committee using untraceable securities.
    “Why wouldn’t that cause someone to inquire?” Paul asked. “Especially since it was days after she said she wouldn’t take any more money from me.”

    SEE:
    While Hillary Clinton battles Barack Obama on the campaign trail, a judge in Los Angeles is quietly preparing to set a trial date in a $17 million fraud suit that aims to expose an alleged culture of widespread corruption by the Clintons and the Democratic Party.

    At the conclusion of a hearing tomorrow morning before California Superior Court Judge Aurelio N. Munoz, lawyers for Hollywood mogul Peter F. Paul will begin seeking sworn testimony from all three Clintons – Bill, Hillary and Chelsea – along with top Democratic Party leaders and A-list celebrities, including Barbra Streisand, John Travolta, Brad Pitt and Cher.

    Paul’s team hopes for a trial in October. The Clintons’ longtime lawyer David Kendall, who will attend the hearing, has declined comment on the suit.

    The Clintons have tried to dismiss the case, but the California Supreme Court, in 2004, upheld a lower-court decision to deny the motion.

  42. I really think this is an interesting story. A black lawyer from New York, quit his 6 figure job to become a rapper. I wonder what people think about this. Is he crazy? Is he smart? Will he succeed? Is he talented? Anyways, he has a reality show on youtube called “Legal Hustler”. I viewed it today, it is quite interesting.

    I’d like to suggest my site for the blogroll. The site is THE SAUDA VOICE: Politics, News & Opinion from the Black Woman’s Perspective and can be found here: http//www.thesaudavoice.com

    Please stop by and take a look. It’s definitely a voice that I think adds to the dialogue in a very important way. Please let me know if/when this site is added to your blogroll.

  54. Foremost, thanks for your efforts to better our people and planet through knowledge . . .

    As we find other ways to help our youth read and succeed, please allow me to share with you my calling:

    UniTee Design is better educating today’s youth by connecting our people and maximizing our resources. Caring citizens, parents, students, schools, groups, businesses, churches, and many others are working with us to create more academic successes for more children.

    “UniTees” (custom-designed tee shirts proudly featuring the red, black and green colors of African American culture) teach our younger generation a rich history and heritage to lift self-esteem and self-identity. Applying a “by any means necessary” mentality, we spread our colors to promote, fund and develop a variety of youth enrichment initiatives. By creating awareness, dialogue and solutions, we are redesigning “UniTee” to empower our youth.

    As founder of The Better Detroit Youth Movement, a non-profit, volunteer-based coalition, I’m intent on establishing higher levels of communication, cooperation and collaboration among youth and community service providers, and our city’s resources, to mobilize action and maximize better outcomes for Detroit children and teens. Applying a strong, strategic and profitable mentality, while engaging and empowering students as much from their perspectives as ours so they are moreso part of the process and progress as they are perceived as the problem, I am also planning to create non-profit orgs in New York City and Atlanta in 2009, based on the BDYM model.

    Strength in unity is one of our most powerful assets. Now let’s use it to lift our children. It’s critical we revive the power of our people to achieve higher levels of academic successes for our youth. Thus, we welcome collaborations for a common cause and greater good.

    Let’s continue to encourage others to do their part in improving the quality of life and learning for our youth.

    Together, we will show the world how beautiful, smart and special our children really are.

  55. Hi,

    I’ve recently started a blog and would like to be added. I’ll be in Denver next week as well for the convention. Thanks for your time and keep up the good work.

  56. Is there any way I can include an automatic updateable list of the blogs in AfroSphere, on our news site? :-)

    Continued success on the AfroSphere… :-)

  57. Dear Sir/Madam,

    My name is Bismark Grant and I work for One World International an African based NGO, we are aimed at promoting global/humanitarian development issues through Entertainment. Our priorities: * To enhance the welfare of women & Children, * To help educate and encourage UNITY in Africa * To support both governmental and non governmental initiatives for the development of Africa and the World at large.

    One World International believes in building a world free of unnecessary barriers, stereotypes, and discrimination …. policies must be developed, attitudes must be shaped, and buildings and organizations must be designed to ensure that everyone has a chance to get the BEST of living conditions (Education, Health, Food, Shelter) etc. and to live independently as full citizens in their various communities. Please consider the following:

    The African Unity Campaign Initiative, is meant to help create Global awareness through the platforms of Internationally recognized organizations to help promote & encourage the need for Africans and the diaspora to support the unified attitudes and press on to the Unification of the African continent for sustainable development.

    Ours, is to support the Goal of the African Union which is to propel a united continent towards peace and prosperity, not forgetting the vision of the Libyan President (Muammar Al-Gaddaffi), who’s vision for Africa is to wake up African Leaders to Unify the African Continent.

    The Root cause of some of Africa’s major problems is the lack of Continental Unity which remains Africa’s most greatest challenge ever and no amount of aid given would resolve Africa’s catastrophes until Africans rise up towards the unifying of our Continent for Sustainable Development.

    One World International is therefore calling on the Global Community (Media, African/World Leaders, International/Local organizations, Governmental/Non-Governmental Agencies, Local/International Celebrities, Africans and the Diaspora) to commit to the struggle towards the Unification of the African Continent for sustainable development.

    Our first Unity Campaign project is the African Unity Campaign Tour to South Africa 2010, a 300 day Road Tour to all 54 countries of Africa, using the power and popularity of Football to encourage the unifying of the African Continent. This is our first upcoming project towards the African Unity Campaign Initiative.

    One World International upon careful review, is calling on AFRO SPEAR to kindly support, contribute and connect us to encourage and make alarming the African Unity Campaign Initiative, for the Unification of the African Continent for Sustainable Development.

    Please kindly consider to joining us in making this history.

    AFRICA MUST UNITE!!!!!!!!

    Thank you very much.

    Yours in Unity For Development,
    Bismark Grant.

  58. I’m a member of the AfroSpear Facebook group and would like to be added to your blogroll. My blog is a resource on technology, entrepreneurship, and personal development for Black online business professionals.

  59. Afrospear is a great concept and execution. Please don’t hesitate to link “Les Lester’s Chronicle” on Afrosphere. I will certainly list you on my blog and message board.

  60. Thanks for including my former sit, blackpoliticalanalysis.com on your blogroll. I’ve now migrated the site to kingpolitics.com. I also have a companion podcast that goes with it. Please check it out, King Politics, on ITunes.

  61. Brotha Asabagna, you have me listed as Lee Lester’s Chronicle–that should read Les Lester’s Chronicle.

    Thanks for the add on. I’ve also linked the AfroSpear to my site.

  62. Hey all,

    I blog over at T’ings ‘n Times (www.mightyminnow.wordpress.com) and was wondering if it’s possible to post some of my posts over here on Afrospear?

  63. I’ve been looking at both Afrospear/Afrosphere and can’t figure out how to get involved with either one b/c links don’t work related to joining. Any help on that?

    Thank you.

    They are an entirely separate entity than us.

  65. America has moved beyond black-white relations in racism to the extent that both now have a common enemy in the attempt to make America subservient to the global interests of islamic cultures and their pervasive view of self sacrifice.

    No different than WWII when blacks as well as whites fought to save the world from the evil outcome of allowing Hitler to conquer the world, Americans now face the same challenges from Islamic dictatorship mentality, and the facility of self sacrifice, now Constitutional individualism rooted in civil rights that she has struggled so long to recognize.

    That Obama is black shows that America is beyond racism, and recognizes the much larger enemy out to steal our independence and autonomy.

    In soliciting the black population in this ever present “present danger,” America was not prepared for the impact of outsourcing jobs to a demographic of people who value country over life rather than life over country.

    Obviously to extricate ourselves from these prior bad choices, Obama must help to lead the charge back toward an America that dignifies life through individualism and respect for each other. If he doesn’t, America will be lost forever to the Big Business and Global government that would make slaves of every American, not just its blacks, or Asians.

    Call it poetic justice, or mere coincidence, but who knew that America could be placed in this situation where fighting for survival meant wholesale civil rights by not sacrificing its finances through outsourcing to a world who cares much about American money, but not much about American people.

    If blacks are not a part of the solution, they will be a part of the problem. And the same goes for whites.

  66. Your site is a breath of fresh air. I really enjoy reading your posts, and I will be entering your blog as a new favorite of mine.

    I would like to share my blog with you as well. I am open to being referenced on your site as well. I am currently writing 60 blogs in 30 days and I must say that I am enjoying the experience. I thank you fro adding to my joy – I really like your articles.

    Take care.

  67. Hello there. It’s Ron (again)… I’m not sure if you know my blog…. it is located at http://www.anythingurban.com. Thanks again. And I have encoded your blog as one of my favorites. Keep up the great work.

  68. Hi, I have contacted you for your support of my internet television network, True Black Television. I started the channel out of growing tired of BET’s “gangsta” images portrayed on TV and TV One’s poor slate of original programming. So, on June 29, 2008, I launched the channel and we aired nothing but reruns, but now, we are beginning to move into original programming. True Black Television airs many black sitcoms from the late 1980s to more recent sitcoms, such as “The Game” and “Everybody Hates Chris.” However, we also air original programs, such as the animated sitcom, “Living Lavish,” and the first black soap opera, “Agape.” Also, in the near future, we want to begin a news program that covers things from a black perspective. Viewership in the channel is fairly high, and I think that your site would benefit if you were to embed True Black Television into your site, so that some of your readers could watch the channel to see what its about.

  73. I love reading AfroSpear!! You’ve achieved your goal. This is a fundamental undertaking, and forming the AfroSpear network is something that has allowed people of color to have a network of voices to get lost in. That is an imperative these days, in this “post racial” nation. I have a blog called The Cool Objectivist, http://coolobjectivist.wordpress.com, and I have added AfroSpear to my blogroll.

    Thank you Afro Spear for all the great work that you have posted on your site. I am wondering if my new blog the Angry Black Woman Watch could be included on your blog roll? My blog is composed of slamming the recently accelerated trend of pathologizing black women and providing exposure for unsung black women of history. Check it out at http://abww.wordpress.com/, e-mail me at eshowoman@yahoo.com and tell me what you think.

  75. i’m circulating this petition to ban a racist drag queen who performs in blackface. if you could sign it, post it, and forward the petition on to those you know, it would really help. here’s the text from the facebook event, and the link to the event, for easier sharing:

    http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=141258899218611&index=1#!/event.php?eid=141258899218611&index=1

    Shirley Q Liquor is one of the drag personas of Chuck Knipp, a white male who performs in blackface and capitalizes on racist stereotypes of black women.

    The following is an excerpt from the Shirley Q. Liquor myspace page, and a bio on this character:

    “How you derrin’! I’m Shirley Q. Liquor. I is from Texarkana and is mother of 19 chillrens. I love some brown bakeded beans, sermons on ignunce, K-Mark, and Shlitz malt liquor…”

    Her numbers include such titles as “Church Slave,” “Who is My Baby Daddy?” and “Jailed.”

    The signers of this petition are not only expressing outrage at the fact that Shirley Q. Liquor continues to be invited to perform in our communities, but they are also committing to boycott any business, organization, or event that hosts her.

    sign the petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/ban-shirley-q-liquor-from-performing-in-your-town

    Please forward this petition widely! Our goal is to acquire 1000 signatures by October 11, 2010, National Coming Out Day. When we reach our goal, volunteers will hand deliver this petition to LGBTQIQ businesses and organizations to encourage them never to book this racist act.

    thanks.

  76. Taking the opportunity to introduce myself to the community. We host the AfroBlog at AfroDaddy.com – The Black Man Survival Guide (http://afrodaddy.com). The purpose of the site is to be a resource for black men to find answers to questions on how to survive and prosper in America.

    We are all about listing any and all resources for black men and their families and I see that the AfroSpear is an excellent centralization of some powerful brothers and sisters. We’re new to the game but when you see fit I would love to join the AfroSpear and/or be included in your blogroll. Until then keep doing what you do.

  77. hello, afrospear -

    not sure what happened but i’m not on your blogroll anymore — and i was for quite some time. i would love to be included again. please let me know if my blog “kudzu, mon amour” still makes the cut.

    i had to remove the blogrolling based afrospear blogroll widget from my blog because of a technical snag. if you have another one, please forward the code and i’ll post it.

    thanks much

  79. I’m taking a second to introduce myself. I’m alison crockett, singer, musician, educator, mom…I really like what you have done and I would like to be considered to be on your blog roll and if my blogs could be considered to be used on your site. My blog, MsDivablue.blogspot.com is about my musings on society, politics, and culture, and most especially music with a sometimes humorous tinge, sometimes not so humorous; Please check out one of my latest offerings at http://msdivablue.blogspot.com/2011/12/when-recession-has-actually-become.html about America’s cinderella story going into decline.

    Non-collapsible items like,
    Book-shelves and fathers
    Can make a space to survive.’

  81. Hello Afrospear. I come here everyday, along with Aljazeera and Black Agenda Report. Unfortunately the Coolobjectivist blog had to be closed, but it is being reconstructed, infact it is up now as…http://coolobjectivistjazz.wordpress.com/. I would like to have it join/link with Afrospear. Is that possible?
