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.
