Blogwarriors: Favorite Baha'i Bloggin' Feb. 19th

As a new offering to the readers of Baha'i Thought, I've decided to spice up my periodic, essay length posts with sharing some of my favorite bloggin' from fellow Baha'i blogwarriors around the world. Here goes:

My brothaman, Malik at The Struggle Within has video of writer Diane Dickerson (of Obama isn't black fame) talking about race.

My friend Phyllis the awesome columnist on Religion and, has a nice piece about her efforts to collect the narratives of African Americans.

Author Druzelle Cederquist at Lumious Realities has a series of posts from a writer's workshop she is involved with.

Representin' the U.K. Barney Leith, whom I've come to love has been following the international responses to the 'makes my blood boil' treatment of the heroic Baha'is of Egypt.

Bilo at Baha'i Faith in Egypt, has the most comprehensive news about what is happening to the Baha'is in that country. This latest is about legal minds weighing in on the ID crisis.

Baha'i Journal has a link to a column by Linda Chavez making one of the most interesting suggestions I've heard regarding the rising tensions between the U.S. and Iran. The president of Iran should become a Baha'i!

David at Correlating, a new blog I've recently discovered has a fascinating post about the decline of inter-racial marriage and the ongoing challenge of de facto segregation.

Victor at Anxiously Concerned, another blogger who attempts to relate the Baha'i teachings to contemporary social issues, has a cool post about the science of fasting, in preparation for the Baha'i Fast which begins on March 2 and is one of the most spiritually powerful times of year for Baha'is.

The Baha'i Blog New Legal World Order has all kinds of neat information, including this recent post about the Baha'i principle of obedience to government and how it relates to the Baha'i commitment to fighting injustice.
