There is no racism intended

The performance theorist Fred Moten focuses on an interview with the late philosopher Emmanuel Levinas (d. 1995), from whom he has taken the title of his lecture, and asks: What is the meaning of not intending the racism you practice? What inferences about the phenomenology of intentionality can be drawn from unintentional racism? Fred Moten teaches at Duke University.
