Good for him.


I do really hate to be a hater, but I don't see anything in his apology about white privilege? Again, really don't like to be the negative person, because it is awesome he apologised, but has that been addressed?

I think he demonstrated his attitudes about 'male privilege' much more clearly than 'white privilege.' He demonstrated the former by actively talking about women; he demonstrated the latter passively, by omission. It ought to be addressed, but he has at least apologized for the greater trespass. Let's give him credit for that, for the kind of reflective analysis and the ability of an atheist to say he/she was wrong without losing face. Then we can talk about implied racism by omission.

Good for him. It takes character to fully admit error and sincerely apologise for it.
