Dean Smith replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion White Cultural Pathologies in the group Race, Ethnicity, & Culture
"The pathology isn't rejection of bad actors as not representative--that's normal--, but the power to effectively enforce their self-perception on minorities while excepting minorities from the same privilege. "

"When it's 'people not like us' we're lumpers; when they're too much like us, we're splitters. Suddenly nuance means everything. If they're 'not like us', we don't look for ways to distinguish them…"

Dean Smith replied to Daniel W's discussion Another battle on Affirmative Action. in the group Conversations on Race, Ethnicity, & Culture
"With a legitimate K-12 education, affirmative action wouldn't be necessary at university. Too much focus is placed on college when our school system is failing to produce enough students who are ready for it."

Dean Smith replied to LarryLager's discussion Black Atheists of Atlanta in the group Black Freethought

Hi
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 9000 good friends and discussion groups.
Among the groups, may I suggest trying the busy group “ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion.....” with its 130 commonsense discussions to repel religious nonsense. You will be welcome.
One discussion is "Proud to be Atheist" (74 posts) seeing that atheists and humanists hold the intellectual high ground compared with the pathetic superstitions of the god followers. Similarly, “Religion is aberrant, atheism is truth” (43 posts).
Terry Meaden (archaeologist; 60+; founder of “Origins”)
