Day of Blogging For Voter Justice: Senator Clinton Needs to Concede
There is a racial divide in the blogosphere just like everywhere else in America. I am taking Sen. Obama up on his challenge to bridge the gaps that still exist between Americans.
I’m calling on fellow left leaning bloggers (especially in Texas), to join the Afrosphere Action Coalition in the Day of Blogging for Voter Justice. We all know that the math says Hillary Clinton cannot win the pledged delegate count. Let’s call on Senator Clinton and her campaign to do the right think and start the healing process in the Democratic Party today.
Fellow bloggers, Black, White, Latino, Asian, et. al., I am calling on you to sign up and show that we can all come together. Not just as liberal or progressive ideology, but in action, word and deed. I am asking you to join this effort on Tuesday, so that WE can show the Democratic Party and this nation, that we are ready to come together and ready to rally around Sen. Obama and his plan of building a more perfect union.
I’m asking…will you join us? Please read the press release below.

Holland, Wayne Hicks, Daz Wilson and Yobachi Boswell) are undertaking a Day of Blogging For Voter Justice, on Tuesday March 25th, to impress upon the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Senator Hillary Clinton, that the Junior Senator from New York must concede the election, and that their will be direr consequences if the DNC and it’s party officials, the superdelegates; overturn the express will of the voters in the democratic primary.
