Does doing something “racialist” make you a racist?
In this session social psychologist David Kaposi discusses an incident where a well-known actor was mistaken for someone else. Reacting with the claim “we all look the same to you!” this session considerers where the boundaries of racism lie. Is doing something that can be perceived as racialist an indication that one is a racist, and what are the defining factors of racism. Similarly, what can social psychology tell us about the way in which racism is socially constructed? This discussion will involve a lot of participation from the audience as we consider some of these themes.
