Beer Monday: Where’s The Diversity, Kosbats?

Yes, it is another great Monday. Time to head back to work, put out the fires that crop up, jump on some conference calls, get busy. How ’bout a woman empowering beer?

Seems as if the Washington Post has some issues with the Yearly Kosbat convention. How bad is it when a so-called ally in the progressive/liberal/surrender monkey media is taking shot at you?

"It’s mostly white. More male than female," says the former high school math and science teacher turned activist. "It’s not very diverse."

There goes the open secret of the netroots, or those who make up the community of the Internet grass-roots movement.

For all the talk about the increasing influence of this growing group — "We are a community . . . a movement . . . an institution," Cooper said in a speech Saturday night — what gets scant attention is its demography. While the Huffington Post and Fire Dog Lake, both founded by women, are two of the most widely read blogs, the rock stars are mostly men, and many women bloggers complain of sexism and harassment in the blogosphere.

Walking around McCormick Place during the weekend, it became clear that only a handful of the 1,500 conventioneers — bloggers, policy experts, party activists — are African American, Latino or Asian. Of about 100 scheduled panels and workshops, less than a half-dozen dealt directly with women or minority issues.

Woops! That isn’t very good, is it? Mostly white. Mostly male. Quick: name female bloggers on the right. Quite a few, eh? Hell, they even have the Cotillion. Now, name liberal female bloggers. There are some, but, other then the HuffPost, which is closer to a site like Yahoo News, there are very few that people will know or mention, even on liberal blogrolls.

Of course, considering that it is liberals who push things like man-bags and getting in touch with your inner female, perhaps the convention was "diverse."
