Consumerism as Racial and Economic Injustice: The Macroaggressions that Make Me, and Maybe You, a Hypocrite
AbstractWhen Gorski started to take stock of his own behaviors and how they might contribute, even if indirectly, to racial injustice, the only conclusion he could come to was this: he is a hypocrite,
especially when it comes to consumerist behaviors. In this essay he discusses consumerism as a series of MACRO-aggressions that feed racial and economic injustice in which nearly all of us, in one way or another, are complicit.
