Some good news out of Google HQ, they’re coming out against California’s Proposition 8.
This is utterly amazing to me that a company as large as Google is would come down on our side. As many times as I’ve faulted Google for their blog policies, etc. sometimes they do something that pretty much washes away their sins.
This is one of those occasions. I feel a bit badly about leaving Blogger but I do enjoy some of the features of WordPress so I won’t be going back soon. But to my friends on Blogger, now you have a reason to forgive some of Google’s transgressions.
It’s common sense here. One thing about the Google blog posting by Mr. Brin that occurred to me is interesting. Google is a company comprised of highly educated and motivated people. I’ve noted that the more educated one is, the more socially liberal they are later in life. This also seems to be very prevalent in the sciences and engineering fields, and not so obvious in the business and soft sciences fields with the exception of psychology.
So those that are for Proposition 8 are the uneducated and ignorant masses. Consider that only 27% of U.S. adults hold B.A. or B.Sc. degrees and you have your answer. The rest of them depend on their church or pastor to educate them, and we all know that those pastors have an agenda.
I see this regularly with my father. I’ve caught him in some outright ridiculous shit that I can trace back to his pastor and his pastors affiliation with white supremacists groups.
That’s the other thing, white supremacists. If you’ve studied anthropology in any way, shape or form you have to know that we white people aren’t in any way superior to any other race. In fact race is a human creation.
And if you really want to make a white supremacists head pop, just mention that our distant ancestors more than likely started out on the African continent and had skin that was quite a number of shades darker than ours. It’s actually been genetically proven at this point.
