a Negro infidel quest for freedom, justice and equality

About


It takes a great deal of courage to go against psychological deep-rooted beliefs and superstitions within the #1 most religious group of Americans: the Negro.

You must exit the road of psychological conformity to being the journey toward your final destination: self actualization.

“The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.”

That which I do believe is called Secular Humanism: a belief in reason, science, democracy, openness to new ideas, the cultivation of moral excellence, a commitment to justice and fairness and a belief in the inherent worth of humanity.

That which I do not believe is call Atheism: unequivocally, I accept the position that no deities exist.

I understand this might be a bit confusing for some religionist; therefore allow to clarify: I am an atheist but atheism only states that which I do not believe. So what do I believe? That which I believe is called Secular Humanism. I hope that helps clarify.

PS: I wasn’t proselytized! It’s not as simple as converting from one religion or denomination to another. Such is a journey one makes individually based upon enormous efforts of research, critically thinking, reflections, self-awareness, experience and observation. It’s much easier to maintain the ingrained religiosity from birth than to make the choice to question that which your grandma, mama and whole family are conditioned to believe.
