Holroyd, Jules and Puddifoot, Katherine (2021) 'Implicit Bias and Epistemic Oppression in Confronting Racism.', Journal of the American Philosophical Association. .
Motivating reforms to address discrimination and exclusion is important. But what epistemic practices characterise better or worse ways of doing this?

We argue that this strategy risks perpetuating two kinds of epistemic oppression: the vindication dynamic and contributory injustice. We offer positive proposals for avoiding these forms of epistemic oppression when confronting racism.
