Hey there,

So I recently watched an interview where you called yourself "Half Muslim..." It's really been eating at me, and I was hoping you'd elaborate more on just what you meant by that? How are you a "Half Muslim who is also an Atheist," ? I'm not trying to offend or anything, but it seems like people perpetuate this idea that Muslim = race, when it doesn't, or at least shouldn't.

Hi, Jamila.

To help with evangelizing atheism, there is a site that has a hundred common topics that is written for a teenage audience:


I am curious to read any comments you may have on how to improve the content or usefulness as an Internet resource.

Feel free to post the link on FB.

You were wonderful on Up With Chris Hayes this morning...it was a good show.  Because of you I checked out this website.  It sure would be nice to get the FaceBook page up and running...I guess it's pretty new.  I'm hooked up with a couple of FB atheist pages, but they tend to be kind of bitter.

I caught your interview on Skepticality podcast.  I love your voice and especially the story of your childhood as a skeptical kid growing up in a religious social milieu.  Keep up the good work!  It is very encouraging that more people of all colors and former conditions of delusion are coming to a more rational view of reality.  Breaking the bonds of the mental slavery that is religious delusion is the next big step forward for humanity's social evolution.

Your belief in capital punishment must be caused by a god virus.  Your position is based on the biblical an eye for an eye and is not based on reason.  I therefore was wasting my time to try to reason you out of your belief.

I just saw you speak at the American Atheists Conference and you were fantastic!  Thank you so much for a wonderful talk!

Hi Jamila....I'm Gilda and I have just "discovered you". For all it's worth I'm a "sista" who does not believe in god, and in reference to your recent talk about beating children as a form of discipline and a mother, I'm very much against that form of cruelty... I don't quite have the words to express my feelings right now. Anyway, I'm glad you're there and I hope one day to meet you and others like you. Right now I'm on a bit of a desperate quest to meet black freethinking women in my area for friendship...sure would be "different".

Hi Jamila,

Great article on the conference and the NPR interview was good too. AHH/CFI put together a wonderful meeting to bring Black humanist out from behind veil silence that prevails in the black community nationwide. I'm sorry to see that Norm Allen was sacked by CFI but the work to free us from superstition,theistic nonsense, and the need to embrace rational thinking is more important than any one person. The work must go forward.

Hi Jamila,
Heard you on the TJMS this morning. THANK YOU!!!! I had to pull over when I heard Ms. Reid say the words "Black" and Atheist" in the same sentence. My parents are Catholic, too and we've been estranged since I 'came out' last year. My biggest fear are people prosthelytizing to my children. Thank you, and take care.-Traci

I just listened to the NPR pod cast with you and Norm Allen and it was great, I just wish you and Norm would have been given more time to elaborate. My father was also a member of the N.O.I. and my mother was a Baptist which made for an interesting upbringing in the projects of Brooklyn, N.Y. during the sixties and seventies. My sister (42yrs.) is a born again Christian, my brother (49yrs.) is an "uncircumcised Philistine", and I (51) never stopped questioning everything, which has landed me in the agnostic/atheist camp. Thank you for being an articulate and intelligent voice for critical thinking and critical questioning, especially in the Black community. Peace, Robert H.

Thank you for writing "Black Women Who Use the "A" Word". I often worry about my 10 year old black daughter because she in a nonbeliever. I hope that in another 10 years she will not be otracised in the black community and will fit in easier.

Hiya from a former evangelical atheist. I stopped being evangelical (mostly) when I realized it isn't about education, and no one "chooses" their beliefs.

Thanks so much! I feel all welcome now! I'm glad to be here- it gets so lonely not having anyone to laugh at the less-intelligent with!
