Good Liberal Intentions are Not Enough! Racism, intentions and moral responsibility

Journal of Moral Education 26 (4):409-421 (1997)
Abstract
Abstract The relationship of intention to moral responsibility in contemporary notions of racism is explored. It is argued that, although the moral import of efforts to reveal and recognise dominance in western society is to be lauded, the peripheral role attributed to intentions in ascriptions of racism can be counterproductive to the aim of helping dominant group members acknowledge their embeddedness in a culture which oppresses others
