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. Daniel W.

I believe that we are so inbred these days that it is getting rather difficult to determine what a "race" is anymore. I, for example, am another Aussie Mongrel. My father was Welsh, my mother was Australian born of British stock with bits of northern Irish and some (more) Welsh via South Africa. So that makes me a healthy hybrid with the associated "vigor".

Had to change the image - the 'blue marble" earth is used for another group, as well as for an avatar. This was non-copyrighted so will see how it looks.
