Since last fall, I have been blogging as "Jack Turner" on the political blog, "Jack & Jill Politics." It's a black perspective on U.S. politics, and I've realized there's no huge need for anonymity, so the veil hath been lifted.

On the site, you can find some unique, insightful and occasionally ground-breaking commentary and analysis on the U.S. political scene that might not be represented in more mainstream political blogs.

I'm proud of all the work up on that site from me and the other contributors who put in even more time: Jill Tubman, rikyrah and dNA.

Here's a recent article I cross-posted to Jack and Jill from my own goodCRIMETHINK

or check out Jill Tubman's great analysis

Impressions of Tavis Smiley's All-American Presidential Forum

I will start cross-posting my Jack Turner posts on my own blog, but please visit Jack & Jill Politics regularly. As this presidential campaign seasons heats up and the country continues to forget about Katrina and other issues important to black folks, J&J is a good place to be.


That's all for now. Hopefully, I've given up something for everyone. My New York people, I'll see you Saturday. My Boston people, next Tuesday it's going down. My new friends from Campus Progress (big up Salt Lake City), you've got some new writing of mine to dig at Jack & Jill Politics.

Special Treat for those who got this far. Photo of me and M1, half of the political hip hop duo, dead prez.

peace. i'm out.
