Racist Things: How Biases Get Materialized in the World
4:00pm, Trimble Forum
A Philosophy Faculty Talk by Prof. Shen-yi Liao (Puget Sound). We find implicit and explicit racial biases in individuals’ minds. We find conventionalized and codified racial biases in social structures. And, this talk will argue, we find covert and overt racial biases in mundane physical things. The recognition of “racist things” and its relation to other manifestations of racial biases allows us to better understand challenges in changing minds and changing social structures.
