Recently the question of whether someone can be both Spiritual and Atheist at the same time was posted, and as expected, some of us agree that both can coexist but others also disagree. However, the conversation took a different tern. Comments posted started addressing the idea of Afro-centrism, and some very negative. In one such comment, Mr. Ralph pointed out, “there is no worse retard than an Afrocentric.” Mr. Ralph, I believe, is misguided in his statement. I totally disagree with him. It was Afro-centrism that brought me, and others I know, to Atheism. Maybe Ralph and I view Afro-centrism differently, and I would like to know his view including the views of everyone here.
However, as an Afro-centered person, being Afro-centric does not have anything to do with religion. Nevertheless, I agree, like Euro-centrism (religious aspect) there are aspect of Afro-centrism (religious aspects) that is stupid and promotes irrationality, but are these irrationalizes what define Afro-centrism. I think not. Afro-centrism is much more than just African religions.
