Race, Ethnicity, & Culture


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.

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.


My 2 cents. Daniel W.

In other news, a Facebook friend just responded to one of my posts, "If Homosexuality is a disease, I'm calling in gay to work tomorrow."

I like it. "Gee Boss, I was catching up on my episodes of 'V' and, well, Elizabeth Mitchell in tight jeans and a leather jacket. I'm going to have to call off gay for a couple of days until it wears off."

If he doesn't come from the right 'class', he wouldn't have had the experiences to prime himself for the miracle.

Gotta say, for what we generally think of as the population makeup of small town America, I love the town I live in.

Woman here at the deli counter and I are talking and she refers to one of her coworkers as "The White dude."

Because 'round here, White is perhaps 10-20% of the population. So instead of the 'token' Black or Hispanic employee, we get the token White employee.

She and I both had a good laugh over the irony of that!

Sad, but not surprising.

That is an interesting read but don't you think it's a little bit racist and sexist? I mean I see that the women who wrote it is coming from a pretty nasty background of interactions with whites and males, but I fail to see what good it does to make such broad scathing generalizations. No matter how true they are to her, they are not universal truths by any means.
