Atheism in 2010

Posted on May 9, 2010 at 12:48pm 5 Comments

One would assume by now that people would be more open to the idea of Atheism in 2010. However, it is not the common thread. Instead, the U.S. welcomed the idea of having a president of color. I say of color because many individuals would argue to label Obama as African-American is denouncing his European Ancestry. Second, it would be the same defense that Thomas Jefferson used when referring to Benjamin Banneker. He felt that it was Banneker’s mixed heritage that made it possible for him to…

Objectivity Manifests Misrepresentation

Gay men continually traverse through society as the triple other. Being labeled sterile, androgynous and quite often ambiguous the status of “eunuch” is quite comforting. This is because of the fear of fragmentation. Minority men, especially Black men, live in a constant state of fear and anxiety. This is because society, ethnicity, family, disease, ideal masculinity regulate their identity. For those who dare to accept their sexuality… Continue

Locks is it a black thing or a human thing?

Posted on December 16, 2009 at 11:48am 2 Comments

So, I am a locks wearing man. They are shoulder length. I love them and I can't get enough of them. However, with that said, they come with a cliche' or a stigma. With in my own African American culture they were feared because it was a revelation of the natural hair texture of African Americans. Furthermore, the hair is not combed and produces a "matted" appearance. However, the stigma associated with "locking" one's hair has changed because of the cosmetological innovations that have taken… Continue

If New York!!!

If New York state passes a same-sex marriage law... That will bring more than 1400 rights to married couples 400 state and 1,000 federal rights are given to married couples.

However, if your in a relationship, you and your loved one better hurry up and get married because it could get over-turned...

We shall see....

Greetings, Anwar! You're cute. :) I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

Hey Anwar:

Thanks for the words of appreciation and congrats on getting into the EdD program! I didn't know you were going into the education field (I do teacher professional development in addition to youth leadership development in high schools, so this is near and dear to my heart), which school are you going to?

Hey Anwar, Any news about grad school? And how's your semester going? We just started our spring break, so I am busy catching up on all the work that has been accumulating for the last few weeks.

Otherwise, I'm hoping to finish my book this week--what a relief it will be to have this burden off my shoulders. If you get a spare minute, let me know how life's treating you.

Talk to you later,

Hey Anwar,
You'd said you were interested in contributing to the global atheist experiences project I'm working on, but I'm not sure which of your blogs you wanted to share. I quite appreciated the one titled "Objectivity Manifests Misrepresentation." One of the comments below it stated that you were working on something similar regarding atheism; I look forward to it. Is that (future?) blog the one you mean to contribute for the book project?
As a totally random aside, my brother-in-law's name is Anwar.

Dear Anwar,
Yes, I would definitely appreciate your contribution to the essay project. I want to include as many different voices as possible, including voices from within various American communities. Are you interested in submitting the blog you mentioned, or adapting it for the project, or...?
Thanks very much for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you again,

Heyyyy! I'm doing well - classes have started up in full swing again, so I'm glad to actually have work to do! How's everything up North?

Thanks for the comments - very flattering! We'll have to talk about urban education sometime - I'd love to hear what you have to say. My philosophical background is a little different (strictly Anglo-American analytical, with some Pragmatism thrown in), but I occasionally explore the continentals... =D

Hey Anwar, So good to hear from you. On my end, things are starting to get manageable--only a few more weeks of teaching, and then I will have five weeks to finish my book, which I hope to send to publishers by the end of January. It will feel strange to be finished with this book, as I have been living with it for four years now. I suspect it will feel like sending one of my children off to college.

How are your grad school applications coming along? Teaching and applying to grad school probably feels overwhelming.

Hope all is well.

Talk to you later,

Thanks for your note. Yes, teaching at Elon is great and getting to do the resseach I do is stimulating and, IMHO, useful.
