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.

"If I have to stick up for my white rights, I have to stick up for my white rights. It goes both ways"  WTF?   Every time I think people can't shock me with their stupidity, someone does.

Former KKK leader and LA congressman David Duke arrested in Germany.  wwltv.com

Duke was reportedly scheduled to speak to a right-wing nationalist group, before German authorities arrested him... Duke, 61, is 'obliged to leave German territory without delay,'"... Duke "'was dubbed an 'undesirable foreigner' and detained in Cologne...

The general point I wanted to make was that native Americans(regardless of tribe) would have different stereotypes and the professor was incorrect to use the words "we all." 

Plus, these stereotypes are changing dramatically in modern times.  A lot of the millenial generation kids have very limited racial stereotypes if any.
