(p.103) Chapter 4 Between Confrontation and Acquiescence: An Ethics of Aversion

Michael Hanchard

Oxford University Press

The theory of aversion offered in this chapter can be read as an elaboration upon some of the idea-elements, norms, and fully fledged ideological forms identified in the preceding chapter. The disparate examples of individuals who respond to conditions of racial discrimination with avoidance and aversion provide the most isolated examples of political community and collective consciousness imaginable. This chapter provides a theoretical and intuitive statement about the consequences of long-standing patterns of social interaction between dominant and subordinate group members and the possibilities of individual political responses to those patterns by individuals.

Keywords:   aversion, norms, racial discrimination, political community
