Hi Guys!

So I was reading a NYT article on Black Atheism and found an interesting quote from Neil deGrasse Tyson. On being asked whether he was an atheist or not by a twitter follower he replied, "Labels are mentally lazy ways by which people assert they know you without knowing you." While labels can become a touchy subject, I do feel this response was somewhat of a cop out.

What is the more likely reason he didn't give a definitive answer? Was it because there was no perfect word to accurately describe him or because of the controversial nature of the subject? This is why it is important for there to be events like the Day of Solidarity, Darwin Day and the Reason Rally so that people can not only be honest about who they are, but not be ashamed.

Regards,

Sam
 
 

Day of Solidarity

The Day of Solidarity was started by Donald Wright, the Vice President of Humanists of Houston as an annual gathering for people, with special handemphasis in the black community, who choose not to participate or adhere to a religious lifestyle. The date is set for every 4th Sunday of February purposely as part of Black History Month.
 
Check out our newly added activity packet for the day. "Like" the Day of Solidarity event page on Facebook. Also check out African American Humanists' new media campaign here.
