Title: Race & Racism: How to move forward? A Call for Self-Racial Redefinitions: A Dissertation Critiquing Lawrence Blum’s "I'm Not a Racist, but . . ." The Moral Quandary of Race

Abstract: Through critical analysis of Lawrence Blum’s theory of racism, I supplement Tommie Shelby’s “social criticism” model for the philosophical study of racism, and construct my own argument for self-racialization redefinition of races. This self-racialization redefinition of race calls to promote racial pride and power by rejecting the white supremacist inferiorizing definitions that have been bestowed upon minority racial groups throughout western society. I work to further the philosophical discussions of race and racism in hopes of fighting for racial understanding and racial egalitarianism.
