Hello Afrospear family, I am Jessica Ann Mitchell, the facilitator of The Black Love Speak Column (BlackLoveSpeak.com). A few months ago I started another website, BlackBloggerNetwork.com. The purpose of the site is to support the initiatives of Black Bloggers. In an effort to encourage healthy dialogue about issues important to black communities, I am launching a blogging contest on BlackBloggerNetwork.com. Each month BBN will post a new topic. Bloggers will take the topic and write a 500 words or less response. Every month, the best blogger will win a $100 cash prize along with a feature as Blogger of the Month. If you are interested in this contest, please share it with your readers. My hope is that more bloggers will share their thoughts and ideas about issues very pertinent to the lives of African descendants everywhere. The question for the month of October is: Barack Obama is now in the 2nd year of his presidency, has he succeeded or failed in supporting initiatives for Black America? Why or why not? Or has not enough time passed for us to tell? Submissions are due by October 18th, however early submissions are encouraged. The winner will be announced on the 27th. Submissions can be email to BlackBloggernet@gmail.com I also welcome submissions from Afrospear members as well. Furthermore, if there is any news that Afrospear would like me to share with my readers, feel free to let me know. Thank you for your time and consideration. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

“Barack Obama is now in the 2nd year of his presidency, has he
succeeded or failed in supporting initiatives for Black America? Why
or why not? Or has not enough time passed for us to tell?”
Interesting idea and opens a door for bloggers to make some cash. However, the question seems a bit unrealistic? Candidate Obama and now President Obama has not addressed any initiatives for Black America. The amount of time passed then seems to be a non issue.
Thanks for your input Ensayn,
If you feel that Obama has not addressed any initiatives for Black America or if you feel that the question is unrealistic, we still value your opinion. You can submit a 500 word or less article expressing your opinion and enter the contest. We want to make sure that all perspectives are heard.
