The Best Black Blogs and Websites to Read in 2013


As SBM continues to grow, we recognize the importance of networking, collaborating, and highlighting talented bloggers, blogs, and websites from around the web. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the extension of hand-outs and hand-ups. That’s why we strive to counter the ‘crab in a bucket’ mentality; whereby in order for one black website to prosper we have to tear down another. Instead, we’d like to believe there is plenty of cake to go around and we love nothing more than to see everyone in our blogosphere community feasting, happy, and full!

Below is a compilation of blogs and websites from various sources we think you should be reading in 2013. Descriptions provided are from the respective site’s About Us page.

VSB – http://verysmartbrothas.com/: the present-day manifestation of those lonely shanty nights, where Springer and Riley wrote and argued and theorized for days at a time, burning the midnight oil while ignoring the mad shrieks of the wild warthogs. The Champ and Panama Jackson are here to continue the relationship-related word, to enlight and excite, to enrage and enthrall, but most importantly, to educate and entertain.

What Would a Man Do?http://www.wwmdonline.com/: an edutaining web series that explores how today’s male minds truly feel about the politics of love and lust. Steered by real-life gal pals, Chazeen, Guerdley and Tracy, the sassy trio deliver distinct perspectives while asking the questions fellow females have, in exchange for the bs-free answers guys don’t often share.

  7. Did anyone else pick up on this story that was largely ignired by the mainstream media?

    "Atlanta Jewish Times publisher resigns over Obama 'assassination' column
    Andrew Adler suggested Israel should assassinate U.S. President Barack Obama to counter Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

    Reuters – 19.5.11 U.S.
    By Haaretz
    Published 21:50 23.01.12

    The owner and publisher of the Atlanta Jewish Times, Andrew Adler, who suggested Israel should assassinate U.S. President Barack Obama, has resigned from his post, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported on Monday.

    Adler, who has since apologized for his article, listed three options for Israel to counter Iran’s nuclear weapons in an article published in his newspaper last Friday. The first is to launch a pre-emptive strike against Hamas and Hezbollah, the second is to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities and the third is to “give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place and forcefully dictate that the United States’ policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies.”

    Adler goes on to write: “Yes, you read “three correctly.” Order a hit on a president in order to preserve Israel’s existence. Think about it. If have thought of this Tom-Clancy-type scenario, don’t you think that this almost unfathomable idea has been discussed in Israel’s most inner circles?"

    According to JTA's report, Adler announced Monday that he is “relinquishing all day-to-day activities effective immediately,” and that he named John McCurdy as interim managing editor."
