Why are so few African Americans, Latinos and other minorities present at spiritual conferences where people like Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dyer and others are speaking? I’m a Latina woman by birth and I must say it was a little disheartening to observe the small numbers of minorities in attendance at most spiritual gatherings. Why do you think this happens?
Are minorities more inclined to follow mainstream religions?
And why is it that it’s mostly “white” people (I don’t like categorizing, but I find no other way to explain this) the ones who are seeking to awaken at this point in time? I know there are some, very few, minorities who are also leaving old dogmas and beliefs behind. But it saddens me to see that a large portion of our population in America is still trapped by old traditional religious beliefs. Nothing wrong with that, of course, since it’s the path most natural to them at this particular point in their evolution as souls. However, I wonder why the disparity in numbers.
Every time I go to a spiritual gathering or watch a video of one online, the audience always seems to be 99.9% white…
I hope my question doesn’t offend anyone. I just want to understand what’s happening and why it is the way it is. What do you think?
I would especially love to hear from our African American brothers and sisters.
