International Year for People of African Descent

Year 2011 is the "International Year for People of African Descent". I think that is a good (small) step by UN to recognise the role of people of African decent.

“The International Year must become a milestone in the on-going campaign to advance the rights of people of African descent. It deserves to be accompanied by activities that fire the imagination, enhance our understanding of the situation of people of African descent and are a catalyst for real and positive change in the daily lives of the millions of Afro-descendants around the world.”
-Navi Pillay, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights

Psychology Today: Stop Publishing Racist & Sexist Articles - Sign the Petition!

Please sign the petition against the article entitled "Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?", it takes less than 60 seconds!

Quoting from
In an attempt to defend previous publications, Kanazawa wrote, “If what I say is wrong (because it is illogical or lacks credible scientific evidence), then it is my problem. If what I say offends you, it is your problem.”
Well, as Khadijah Britton of Scientific American put it, “Satoshi Kanazawa has a problem.” So does Psychology Today.
