Atheists of color

I see Greta Christina has put together a list of prominent atheists of color. It's meant as a resource for atheist conferences, to help organizers put together a diverse mix of speakers.

And the same general idea is behind this list of awesome female atheists, too. Yeah, in a perfect world, we wouldn't need these. But we live in the real world.

No one is advocating quotas or tokens. It's just that it's all too easy to overlook the diversity in the atheist community. I'm glad my fellow atheists are thinking about this issue.
