"Philosopher Naomi Zack believes that. If we really want to fight racism, a good first step would be to stop talking about privilege. Paulsen asked her to explain you've said that we need to rethink the way we talk about privilege. What's wrong with the idea of this phrase, checking your privilege? A privileges. Something extra it's special convenience or perk. That you get which is not vital. And I think what is it issue is rights? It's not a question of whites having privileges that non whites don't have. It's a question of the rights of non whites not being taken seriously is the rights of whites. Can you give me an example of a privilege versus a right there have been a number of cases of unarmed. Young black men who been shot by police who were not otherwise involved in any criminal activity or confrontation. This is given rise to a national conversation here and there about white privilege, and it's considered to be a privilege. If people don't have to worry that the police might accidentally or deliberately in the heat of moment shoe. Shoot their children. Well, that's not a privilege, you know, that shifts. What's really going on to the ease that white people have in the culture, what those incidents our rights violations? They're not a question, whether or not a different group has certain privileges so to dwell on privileges while the rights of other people are being violated is something like in the case of wealth. We address poverty by asking rich people to tell us how nice their lives are. It sounds like you're saying that by reframing this issue as a matter of rights. It becomes becomes a moral issue. And probably also a legal issue in terms of actually how we define this this whole thing. Well, you know, it's illegal issue. A very interesting way because we already have formal equality. I think this is a question of more work in legal infrastructure row. Rather than requiring any change in laws. There already exists because you have to realize that for most white people the system functions fairly, well, can you play this out for me, then so what specific actions might be taken. Let's say by police departments. If this particular issue is seen as a matter of a violation of rights. Police could have a number of changes. There could be better rules of engagement. There could be a relaxed sation of the policy racial, profiling backup for a moment, and sort of in unpack this whole notion of privilege of of white privilege in particular because there has been so much focus on that recently. And you're not actually saying that white privilege isn't real are you no, I'm not no white privilege is real why I'm criticizing is the discourse of white privilege is undertaken by white people as a response to some of the tragedies that the country has witnessed over the past couple of years. Okay. So what what don't you like about the way white privilege is talked about these days of by academics and other people. Well, I think it's relevant. I think it's somewhat decadent. It doesn't address the problem and becomes an avenue for. Flattery and reflection. I mean, one of the things that might motivate people to do is it might motivate greater politeness. That's a good thing. But it doesn't address the hard issues. In other words, it allows white people to talk about themselves and things are okay for them. So that's not really a problem. I don't think it's a way of addressing an ongoing problem. Basically, you're saying that the white people do talk about being privileged, you know, they might feel guilty about it. But they're not gonna change anything for the most part. No, they're not gonna change anything. And it's not clear that guilt serves any purpose here. I mean, I think there's a question of passivity. Let's pick up again this question of racial, profiling by the police, why do you think so many police departments actually do engage in this kind of racial profiling and all of these cases of young black men in particular getting stopped. Well, I think that they're using the criminal Justice system statistics instead of the statistics for the overall population. The other reason is there's been a policy and policing called the broken window policy and the idea behind broken windows is that if you stop small crimes and misdemeanors. Your prevent larger crimes from occurring. So pick up people who are drinking in public or loitering or jumping subway term styles and that will discourage more severe violent crime. Then there's some dispute in the literature about how accurate that is. There has of course, been enormous public attention to this whole question of police violence over the last two or three years or so, but I'm wondering if you think we need a different kind of national conversation about these issues is there is there a better way to talk about this. Yeah. We need more specific proposals. You know, and we should hear from the police. You see this happening? I mean, what you've been talking about you know, sort of the emphasis more on rights or more specifically hearing more directly from from the police themselves. I mean, are we starting to see any kind of a shift? Well, yeah, I think there is a shift the Oregon the state in which I live recently passed the law against the use of racial profiling now the numbers of non white minorities in the state of Oregon relatively low. But nevertheless, that's a big change. I don't know the details of that law yet or how will play out or what kinds of difference it will make. But this is a national process, and we're probably not even yet in the middle of it. We're probably still in the beginning of it with this is sort of a fascinating perspective. Thank you so much for coming in to talk about this. Oh, thank you. It's been a pleasure. They always act teaches.
