Welcome to Black kos, the Black interest open thread on dkos. This will be a regular discussion area for topics of interest to Blacks in the US and for current events in Africa and the Caribbean. This is similar to Latino:Kos, and will be run in the same way.
Here's how to play:
Anyone can start the daily diary.
It doesn't have to be that much if you don't feel like it. MexiKos (the predecessor to Latino:Kos) diaries could be anything from rec list quality 4 page essays to a couple quick google news story summaries. The important thing is that we create a regular open forum for this topic.
If you want this forum to make it, participate. Start the diary if it hasn't been done. Add comments. Dispense mojo. I'll do what I can to launch this, but I can't sustain this forum at the level it should be at by myself.
The idea isn't to Balkanize Kos
This is my Personal opinion but I don't think anyone should only write for Black Kos! I write diaries on History, Energy Independence, and Political Strategy. So I would advice anyone to not feel like you NEED to pigeon hole yourself into one topic. But if that what you feel pasionate about that's ok! Or if you just want to write a story from time to time that's ok too. This is just a forum to focus on an issue of interest to progressives, similar to "Energize America, Frameshop, ect".
If anyone else is trying to do a similar initiative I will defer and support it. Well...
Welcome to Black Kos
It will be interesting to see how this thread grows.
