I am not black, but I am from Paris, Texas, so I am prejudiced in favor of Shawn Williams although I have never met him. At 78, I have had a lot of questions about why anyone would blog at all, or how. He did a good job of addressing both motivation and implementation. He also gave us a great piece of history. I had no idea that black bloggers helped put Obama in the White House. It was exciting to read about how they met each other and put together quite a network. It brought back all the excitement of the Civil Rights movement in the late 1950s. I was delighted at Obama's election, and I'm a Republican. Mr. Williams also maintains objectivity in his reporting. He tells you his point of view up front, then reports the facts objectively. He also includes his personal story which gives warmth and reality. And he includes blogs of the time as a way of unfolding the story.
