Sorry, I missed the last blog-fest as we were in Chicago.
Among the "running mates" there are a few black men engaged in the campaign. But, they don't post to the blog here with any frequency.
So, first question: How many are in the network now? Any? And, does it make sense to do a bit of outreach and get five new bloggers signed up and at the next Blogfest in January?
Black males rare on nation's campuses: "To some degree, said Dr. Larry Davis, dean of the School of Social Work and director of the Center of Race and Social Problems at the University of Pittsburgh, black women fall under the umbrella of the women's movement, but black males have no allies.
'For many of them, there is no such thing as brotherhood. White men aren't saying 'Come on in, brother.' '
Once higher education is no longer an option, their job choices narrow significantly, which can lead to crime, unemployment and imprisonment, said Dr. Davis."
