Inspired by the recent SCOTUS hearings for Ketanji Brown Jackson, Carter explores the concept of racism from a philosophical standpoint. What do we mean by “racial discrimination,” and is it always wrong? If so, why? At the risk of offending just about everyone, he derides the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and defends Kimberlé Crenshaw’s core observation about the legal system in her seminal work, “Demarginalizing the Intersection of Race and Sex: A Black Feminist Critique of Antidiscrimination Doctrine, Feminist Theory, and Antiracist Politics.” He ends by thanking Ketanji Brown Jackson for her inadvertent admission when asked to define the word “woman.”
