Hello Eric how are you?
What is a good emotional measure of the experience of White supremacy racism on Black peoples?
Expend a little more of your effort trying to determine that, and find out if you reach the same, or even a similar conclusion, as your current one.
Best regards, Ken.

I’m sure all those things compel people into ideologies, but I’d say it’s a peer induced coercion and intimidation as appose to some external influence. The poorer classes usually assign themselves to a deity of some kind. Maybe not Russia during the late 19th century, though.

I have no idea. Again, I’d say that you should look at the problem from a socio-economic question as appose to just ‘black males’. Prejudices against lower classes in general usually are used as false positives for racism.

Sorry, Lorraine, I did try to move the discussion in a direction that’s more pertinent to atheism, with some success, maybe.

Eric, you ask why are blacks so religous? My answer is, violence, coercion, and intimadation, are persistently applied, to compel blacks in that direction.
Eric do you doubt that black males have a harder time that most others becoming, professional physicist, chemist, engineers, and mathematicians?
