The racial divisions of moral labor

At this year’s Society for Philosophy and Psychology meeting in Durham, North Carolina, Garrett Marks-Wilt and I gave a poster presentation of our paper “Race-asymmetric moral assessments, ideological orientation, and symbolic racism.” In the paper we report the results of a study suggesting that symbolic racism predicts a tendency to assign different moral roles to Whites and Blacks, with individuals high in racism — and individuals who politically self-identify as conservative — tending to regard Whites as more deserving of moral consideration than Blacks.
