What? I never said any such thing. I just said that it's a scientific term and wasn't created as a racial slur. I never said that it was never used in a racist context.

Of course I would never just call some random black person a negroid. I'd only use it in a discussion where it was clear that we were talking about science. I'm not an idiot.

You're being biased by reacting to a scientific term based solely on its history of being used as a slur. We're being objective by acknowledging its being created as a scientific term.

Also, I am not interpreting the word as "racist"

I have seen it used a racial slur.
Sure, the scientific community has its biases -- though science itself is neutral by definition. Yes, faulty scientific reasoning was once used to justify eugenics by biased white supremacists to justify their racism, but ultimately it was science itself that proved that the "scientific" claims made by the Nazis about their genetic superiority were nonsense. If my memory serves me correctly, the Nazi's own scientific research proved themselves wrong, even if they weren't willing to accept it.

Science might not give us answers right away, but ultimately the scientific method will eventually weed out the bull**** from the facts. Whether the scientific method was developed by any single race, its core nature is colorblind.

I understand that fields are different but fields such as psychology, sociology, social work, family studies etc have to learn similar social science theories unlike "Communications."

The receipts were given and Communications is a social science however that doesn't mean you learn the same social scientific theories as psychology or even a family students degree. Its very different in that respect.


Also, I never said I was an expert in anything. I said what I was currently studying and learning in a field. However, I am not an expert or claiming to know everything about any particular field but yes diversity,immigration, social issues, etc those are areas that I am passionate about and have real interest in as well as psychology.

Further more, I never said I was an expert in anthropology either. Since anthropology is a type of social science, I posed the question, "Why can't we question scientific ideals or concepts?" Never have I claimed to be an expert in that area.

I like questioning things and I think everybody should do that. I don't think we should accept things as is.

my communications class actually did regurgitate a lot of the same concepts that my psychology class introduced. but i only took the intro to each course cause of elective requirements so i'm not taking some sort of stance just throwing that out there.
