Here we go again!!!! The elephant in the room is RACE and it showed up in a courtroom with Paula Deen and in a Swiss boutique with Oprah. Two different reasons. In two separate countries thousands of miles away. Paula Deen admitted to frequent use of the “N” word with staff, friends, family and colleagues. Oprah strolled into a fashionable Swiss boutique and was refused service when the clerk thought the purse she wanted to see was too expensive for her tastebuds. Let’s clear the record, Electing a popular and prolific Black President does NOT make this country post racial! And now it doesn’t make the world post racial! Race is embedded in the DNA of our society, even though it is merely a social construct crafted by the slave owners of the 1600s. We’ll explore the reasons why race still matters with Mary-Frances Winters, a veteran diversity professional who has personally felt the sting of racial injustice and understands why it persists to this day.

The people of Salem, Massachusetts in the 1600s lived in a culture that accepted the existence of the devil, assorted demons and other evil spirits, including witches, and which encouraged them to blame all misfortune and conflict in the community on these supernatural causes.The people of the modern day West live in a culture that largely accepts the existence the Patriarchy, Rape Culture, and Cultural Misogyny, and which encourages them to blame all misfortune and conflict in the community--from rape to domestic violence to the pay gap to male-only conscription--on these ethereal and unfalsifiable "social constructs".The Salem witch trials began with accusations against an opposing camp--a rival family in the community engaged in a long-standing feud with the family of the accused.The flurry of recent sexual misconduct accusations in the Atheist/sceptic community essentially began with an invitation to continue a conversation over coffee, proffered by an unnamed man in an elevator. That invitation was ground zero for the splintering of that community into two rival camps--one which embraced scepticism and the rejection of any notion of an invisible, unmeasurable superior power that rules all our lives, and one which embraced dogmatism.A witch hunt has begun in the sceptic community--one side asking for evidence, and the other demanding blind faith. Who will prevail? God knows...
