The search brought up an intresting yahoo page that was titled "I have seen many black and white atheist, but few Hispanic atheist,why?" The person who had the top posting on the webpage was a person who said, "Because Hispanic people have common sense." Well, after the slight aggravation subsided it really hit me how hard it was for me to meet people of my own ethnic background that had the same feelings toward a secular life. In my personal life I have been searching for similar like minded people in general and I have found a number of atheists and agnostics yet they all where either white, or black. I was raised roman catholic and I always imagine that most people in church are agnostic and just went to the mass for the idea of an obligation. Yet after talking to some I realized that they all have this idea that there is a presence that exist Inherently in the community of the church that may not be god but they find it as enough to worship their deity. I do not feel that most of the people I talk to know that there is a strong sensation of alienation when you are the only person in three towns that is from your heritage that is secular. I always loved being part of a greater whole. It is what fuels me to be a researcher in virology. Yet I feel a certain sensation of depression when I realize that my culture, has embraced these ideals so deeply that even those who do not believe are hard press to leave. I don't regret leaving. but it does strike up a storm of resentment towards what is in my opinion a beautiful culture.
