Christ divided : antiblackness as corporate vice

Katie Walker Grimes (Author)
Bringing the wisdom of generations of black Catholics into conversation with contemporary scholarly accounts of racism, Christ Divided diagnoses antiblackness supremacy as a corporate vice that inhabits the body of Christ. To truly understand racial inequality, theologians must acknowledge the existence of antiblackness supremacy and recognize its uniquely foundational role in prevailing processes of racialization and racial hierarchy. In addition to introducing a new framework of racial analysis, this book proposes a new approach to virtue ethics. The theory of corporate virtue outlined here provides a freamework throughwhich to evaluate the habits of antiblackness supremacy and propse new ones--the be made to 'do the right thing.'"-- Provided by publisher
