From CNN to Fox News and beyond, black political thinkers are appearing more in the news. This shows that an affirmative action approach can work, but will it cross over to the community?
Everyone expected a positive change with the nomination of Sen. Barack Obama, as we do now with him as President. Positive change has come to politics as a result, at least in political media.
A recent report noted the uptick in black political pundits and bloggers, which seems to be a result of the presence of President Obama in the last political cycle. This is a good thing, not just for people like me, but for plenty of other Americans who are finding their points of view being voiced in a manner not seen before the 2008 election.
