Bloggers Against Racism
It's been a few days, and the Blog Against Racism Day discussion is still in full swing, and the entries keep coming in.
Which is what we all wanted, right?
A hugely diverse group of people made Blog Against Racism Day a startlingly successful project. Not successful in the sense of ending racism, of course, but in terms of how many people took part.
There are more than 250 bloggers in the list of participants below. I'm certain I've neglected some. Please let me know in comments if you know of an entry not on the list, and I'll add it.
Because of the sheer number of participants, this list was compiled without a huge amount of research. I consolidated lists from the comments and trackbacks here, from Tony G. at milkriverblog and Kevin Andre Elliott at Slant Truth (thanks guys!), from Google and Technorati.
Where it was possible to make sure of it, the links below will take you to the BAR Day post, and include the blog (and/or blogger) name and post title. At the very least, the link will take you to the front page of the participating blog, and you can look for posts from December 1 or thereabouts. I tried not to list aggregator sites that merely republish rss files, but I did include folks who linked without writing posts: every bit of attention helps. Again, if you have suggested edits to any of the links - or if I've overlooked a link or two that's inappropriate - drop a note in comments.
[Update] Also, as I update this list, MovableType insists on re-trackbacking everyone. I'm sorry about that. After this update, I'll put new additions in a subsequent post so as to minimize the incredible annoyance this is probably causing some of you. My apologies.

Thanks for the long list!

Thanks for the great idea, and all the work you put into organizing and tracking it. It was a smashing success, and I read a lot of great stuff from blogs I hadn't really noticed before (including your own, which it turns out is local to me). Great job!Posted by: Tom Hilton at December 5, 2005 12:48 PM
One more for the list: I linked to the main post when I blogged against racism the other day, but this trackback stuff is alien to me and apparently I got it wrong. For what it's worth, here's the link to what I wrote:

Thanks again for the idea--and thanks for the list, too.

Great idea, Chris, and I am going to treat the reading of these as a kind of reward to myself over the coming weeks... looking forward.
