Black Run Politics Blog In Houston—Where Are Other Such Blogs In Texas?

A fine Houston blog I’ve recently discovered is There…Already.

Here is the link.

This is a blog with a lot of political content that is run by Black folks.

I’ve long thought that Houston and Texas have a lack of Black-run blogs with some focus on politics.   

Dallas South is, you might guess, out of Dallas. Dallas South is a good blog.

Dallas South is mentioned in this National Public Radio report about Black bloggers focusing on the Jena Six issue. 

Liberal and progressive blogging in Texas does not seem fully demographically representative of the people who hold liberal and progressive views in Texas. 

The AfroSpear is a loose association of a number of Black bloggers across the country.

If there are other politically orientated Black bloggers in Houston and in Texas, I’d like to know. I’m sure I’ve missed some people.

If my new friends at There…Already would like me to buy them a beer, I’d be happy to do so.

Here is a history of African-American newspapers in the United States

  3. Neil, thanks for the link-love and sending so many of your good readers our way. I’m in Greenway Plaza most days (you know, work and all), but I’ll definitely take you up on that beer anytime we can coordinate it.

    Shawn mentioned the same Texas bloggers I would’ve in his comments above, and you can find their sites on our blogroll.

    Thanks again, and looking forward to doing more, together.
