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