Race, Ethnicity, & Culture

Beliefs about race and ethnicity influence our cultures, politics, and relationships.  What is race?  What is ethnicity?  This group explores those concepts.

Welcome!

Racism and the effects of ethnocentrism are alive and well in the 21st century.  Racism and humanism are incompatible by definition. 

 File:BlueMarble-2001-2002.jpg

The most human, and humane, thing that we can do is acknowledge and support the humanity of people who are different from ourselves.  Curiosity about what makes us human, by necessity, includes curiosity about our human ethnic heritage.

 

We are incredibly enriched by immersing ourselves in a diverse world.  We are intellectually and emotionally impoverished when we exclude others who are not our mirror image.

 

This discussion group includes many topics about race and ethnicity.  Feel free to comment to new threads, or resurrect old threads, if any spark your interest.

 

My 2 cents. Sentient Biped.

Maybe that's the result of early baptism, and will improve with decatholicization of Ireland.

I've heard that redheads are the most "gamey."

Arrggh.  Fortunately, the catholics are losing their hold on Ireland, a potential source for tasty ginger babies.  Of course, I'm not the first to think of that - it's just a modest proposal.

I thought holy water was just a kind of marinade.
Comment by A Former Member on September 24, 2011 at 3:53pm
Uhmm, that's why I called it "holey" water.

It's my early onset dementia.  I suppose the holy water prepares them for other priestly purposes...  not that I would venture what.

What self-respecting atheist are you? Didn't you get that memo? They're only good if they haven't been spoiled by holey water.
Comment by Sentient Biped on September 24, 2011 at 3:14pm
Dallas, does that mean no Catholics?  I hear they baptize them early.   Ohhhh....  that's how they protect them from the atheists!
Comment by A Former Member on September 24, 2011 at 2:42pm
Yes, SB, but you gotta get 'em before they're baptized, or else the meat gets very tough.
