Previous: The ‘Art of Thinking’ about how we describe Racism, Leicester Secular Hall, 16th April 7.30pm
Philosopher DR GREG Scorzo will lead a talk and discussion about:
How should we describe Racism?
In this session, we will discuss two contrasting conceptions of racism: systemic racism, and psychological racism. Psychological racism is when an assumption about a person’s character is motivated not by the person, but by the racial demographic they belong to. Systemic racism is when the structural inequalities in society function as though there is psychological racism, even when there might not be. It is normally thought that the two conceptions of racism can co-exist alongside each other, but it might be the case that they cancel each other out.
