PHIL 3730: Business Ethics 3/8/16: White and Male Privilege Reading: “White Privilege and Male Privilege: A Personal Account of Coming to See  Correspondences Through Work in Women’s Studies” by Peggy McIntosh What are oppression and privilege? Furthermore, what moral significance do they have? Distinctions  Equality vs. Equity (Seem pretty similar, right? Wrong. Equality is treating everyone the  same while equity is taking everyone’s (dis)advantages into account so no one is over­ or  underprivileged.)  Formal vs. Substantive equality (Pretty clear difference here. Equality in the rules vs. The equality actually practice.) Dimensions of Privilege and Oppression  Male (sex)  White (race)  Straight (orientation)  Cis (gender)  Able­bodied (disability)  Middle­class (class)  Christian (religion)  Handedness (most items are made for the right­handed)  Citizenship  Mental Health  Weight  Age Definitions oppression – systematic, harmful restrictions on individuals as members of a social group  (Frye); double­blinds privilege – unearned benefits systematically distributed to members of a social group  (Bailey) Analysis  Knapsack metaphor (Having privilege is like being in the woods with a knapsack that has a map, compass, food, water, GPS, mosquito spay, sunblock, etc. Not having privilege is  like being in the same situation, but the knapsack only has rocks and other things to  weigh you down.)  Structural privilege  Privilege as the correlate of oppression  Intersectionality (How the multiple identities everyone has affect how they move through the world. For example, a Black woman may have gender privilege, but not race or  orientation privilege.)  Unconscious bias What’s this got to do with business? Legal Compliance ­ Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 ­ Americans with Disabilities Act ­ Title IX ­ Variety in state’s laws Organizational Policy and Culture ­ Affirmative action ­ Acknowledging unconscious bias ­ Demanding attention to diversity through institutionalization o Employee (sensitivity) training o Creating new position specifically for this o Addressing job review procedures o Inclusive recruiting bases 3/10/16: Marxism Reading: “Alienated Labour” by Karl Marx Common Misconceptions about Marxism  Marxism is why the USSR failed.  You can’t like religion and agree with Marx (on anything).  Marxism = Socialism = Communism o Think of these three as a straight line: Capitalism       Socialism        Communism     (utopia)  Private property is the main thing Marx takes issue with. Alienated Labour  This concept is all about relationships. o Alienated labour is actually the sub­thesis. o It (1) alienates man from nature, (2) alienates man from himself…so (3) it  alienates him from the species (169). Instead of making intrinsically valuable stuff and things we can see reflections of ourselves  inside in factories, we’re making them just so others can buy it and the factory owner can make a profit. Private Property This is not the cause of alienated labour, but the consequence of it.
