Anonymous asked: Are all Atheists Whites? I've never, ever met a Black Atheist, or for that matter a Black Agnostic. Come to think of it, I don't think Hispanics are anywhere near the genre.
Not all Atheists are white but unfortunately it does seem to be disproportionately white. There are a few Atheist/agnostic POC on tumblr. Doubting Marcus comes to mind as one of my favorites. Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a well known African American agnostic, he refuses to refer to himself as an Atheist. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is another well known non-white Atheists but sadly there really aren’t enough. There do seem to be few Hispanic Atheists (at least that I am currently aware of) and adding more diversity to the group would be a huge plus.
