You may know of Loewen from his popular "Lies" books including "Lies My Teacher Told Me," "Lies Across America" and "Lies My…

Thanks to readers/commentators

I want to thank everyone who has taken or will take the time to read and comment on my latest post on the concept of race.

I knew this was a touchy subject, and if I was going to ruffle some feathers, so be it. Hell, the same thing got me in trouble in Corporate-Carpet-Land.  But I was also going to articulate what some people were already thinking, politically incorrect as it might be.

The important thing is the dialog.  Racism, real or perceived, is still a raw nerve for many…

Will America ever be able to shut up about race?

“C’mon people now, smile on your brother

Everybody get together try to love one another – right now.”

Lyrics, “Get Together,” The Youngbloods

“[Thomas Sowell’s book Migrations and Cultures] is a strong indictment of both affirmative action and multiculturalism. The former because it tends to be self-defeating, the latter because it discourages minorities from shedding old habits and adopting new and more functional…

Making Atheism Stand for something more than just a lack of belief?

Yes, the classical definition simply means that you don't believe in a god.

 

Here's what I would like to see for the future, though:

-activism. A striving for equality and understanding.

I grew up surrounded by racism, class-ism, ableism, sexism, sizism, homophobia and a whole lot of other -ism's that are negative, and detrimental to society, by splitting it up into "us" and "them", and a lot of these are in religion, some are outside of it, but much of it, is…

Race is an obsolete concept

I grew up in Spartanburg, South Carolina. It's no teeming metropolis, mostly suburban but it's far from a rural community.My schools were always at least 50% African-American (in junior high it was 90%). I must say that I think I was lucky. I was an intelligent white boy in the poverty-stricken inner city...well as much as you can call Spartanburg a city, that is. I never in 12 years saw 2 people fight or not get along because of their race. Asian, whites, blacks, latinos-all had their friends… Continue

Deborah Cooper podcast

I did an internet radio/podcast with Deborah Cooper of Sucka Free Dating this week. It was unusual and fun to say the least. You can listen at this link:
