Title: Neil Levy
Am I racist?
There is good (though still controversial) evidence that ordinary agents
harbour implicit attitudes that are sometimes at odds with their explicit
beliefs. Many white Americans, for instance, exhibit an implicit bias
against black people. Assuming that they are sincere in professing
non-racist beliefs, are they racist? There are three influential models of
racism in the literature: doxastic, behavioural, and affective. I will
consider whether such agents are racist, measured against the standard each
provides. I will argue that given the best evidence of the nature of
implicit attitudes, they should be assessed as largely though not
exclusively non-racist against the doxastic and behavioural standard, while
the affective standard delivers a more mixed verdict.
