It’s great that The White House is reconizing Black bloggers including my friends Baratunde Thurston and Cheryl Contee at Jack and Jill Politics.

From The Washington Post

Last week, President Obama drew notice for lunching with a group of A-list pundits at the White House. But below the radar, his staff also has been reaching out to an array of less visible opinion-makers, including, for the first time, the long tail of the black blogosphere.

More than 60 small-site bloggers met Friday with Jesse Lee, director of the White House’s Online Programs, and Corey Ealons, White House director of African American Media, while in the District for Blogging While Brown. The annual gathering of bloggers of color has become the largest get-together for black political bloggers in the nation.

The meeting, brokered by Cheryl Contee of the blog Jack & Jill Politics and several months in the making, gave the White House a new audience for its health-care message — an audience that Democrats believe will be critical in the fall elections. It also offered the bloggers a chance to connect with the administration and find ways to gain more White House access.
