At least that's what the Brazilian press is saying and showing. However, "Black Kos" has not reported on either of these incidents.
On April 19th, two days ago, we have a "Commentary by Black Kos Editor Deoliver 47," about the youth vote.
On April 15, four days earlier, there was a bit of poetry by "Black Kos Poetry Editor Justice Putnam."
On April 12, 3 days earlier than the last post, appeared "Commentary by Black Kos Editor
On April 8, four days earlier than the last post, there was a reflection by "Black Kos Editor, Sephius1."
On April 5, three days earlier than the last post, there was a "Commentary by Deoliver47."
On April 1, four days earlier than the last post, there was a commentary by dopper0189, Black Kos Managing Editor.
What can we gather from the above? All of the articles written for Black Kos in so far in this April were written by four (4) editors of "Black Kos". What are they "editing" besides their own writings?
All of the articles they wrote in the first twenty-one days of April were written by:
- "Deoliver 47"
- "Black Kos Poetry Editor Justice Putnam,"
- "Sephius1" or
Black Kos is a silent backwater in the DailyKos whitosphere blog as the following observation proves numerically:
Editor Deoliver 47 has not written a high-impact diary according to the archives of DailyKos, from January 2010 until the present..
Editor Justice Putman has never written a high impact diary during that period either, according to an archives search.
Editor Sephius 1 has not written a high impact diary at least since January 2010.
And Dopper0189 has not written a high-impact diary in that period either.
An "editor" should teach writers to publish stories that are influential. Yet, these four editors themselves have demonstrated that their own writings have no influence at DailyKos. This leads me to believe that, however meritorious the writing of the four editors above may be, they are being ignored at DailyKos, and they apparently don't even care.
The transparent sham appearance of an attempt to create a Black community around these editors is simply a reflection of a much deeper problem: the redlining of DailyKos and the whitosphere. DailyKos whites treat "Black Kos" as if it were a dangerous Black ghetto that DK whites avoid like a car-jacking. The neutered speech of four (?) 'Black Kos" editors is the price for them speaking at all at DailyKos. These are Black Americans who have learned not to upset the pseudo-progressive CIA-influenced DailyKos branch of the American whitosphere.
This is why Quantcast.com site metrix shows that DailyKos has only 3% Black visits to their site, while Black delegates to the Democratic National Convention typically are 20% of delegates and some states have more Black Democratic voters than white ones.
Moreover the site visits at DailyKos are 1% Hispanic, perhaps precisely because its owner, Markos C. Alberto Moulitsas Zúñiga's runs like his hair is on fire from his Latino, Salvadoran roots, as he did in the following letter to the editor at Northern Illinois State University's "Northern Star" student newspaper. He insists that he is simply a white man.
"Sure, I could always talk against racism, fight ignorance and prejudice wherever I ran into it, yet I would always be looking in from another room and I could always close the door. My life, in my world, in my own detached selfishness. And as I left the ugly reality of racism behind, it struck me that what was such an easy and trivial exercise for me would be impossible for anyone whose skin color or religious persuassion (sic) made them the target of bigotry and discrimination. THEY would never be able to escape who THEY were." (Emphasis added.)MAMZ looks white in terms of his skin color. The quote above explains why Latinos in the United States utterly ignore DailyKos even though it's owner is half-Latino. MAMZ thinks like an anti-Black and anti-Latino color-aroused antagonist, and these demographic groups feel it.
You'll have to search for the link and the rest of the above article at MAMZ's alma mater, the Northern Illinois University, within their Northern Star newspaper archives, using the search term "Moulitsas." For some reason, the URL addresses of MAMZ's articles from his college career have changed four or five times since 2007, when I began researching and publishing these extremely embarrassing and rabidly homophobic 100% Republican articles.
Back to the point: "Black Kos" is a transparent shame that exists precisely because there are virtually no Blacks participating at DailyKos, and so the few there are must be aggregated and highlighted to avoid the appearance that DailyKos is a white supremacist organization.
The concept of a ghetto created especially for the Black demographic at DailyKos arose because there was an embarrassing lack of Blacks' content, and Blacks with high-impact there are feared and banished. I know because my diaries at DailyKos were consistently high-impact diaries and yet I was banned from the site. I was banned because I expressed the opinions of a Black man (e.g. that a non-white male president of the United States should and would be elected in 2008).
This anti-Black antagonism expressed in response to this view explains why there are only 3% Blacks at DailyKos, and proves that "Black Kos" exists only as part of a public relations sham attempt to imply that there are substantially more Black at DailyKos than there actually are. This is why the Washington Post said for YearlyKos said, "Bloggers' Convention a Sea of Middle-Aged White Males".
