A “reluctant racist” is an institution that purports to have no negative biases or prejudices against Blacks but has definite discriminatory behaviors. For example, an institution could hold no negative beliefs about Blacks but prescribe pain medications differently to Blacks as an indirect result of some other policies. This is the most pervasive form of racism and also the hardest to challenge. Reluctant racism occurs due to mistaken stereotypes, biases or prejudices that are acted out in an unthinking manner or through policies, practices, or procedures of institutions that have a disproportionately negative impact on Blacks. Often, the behavior is motivated by non-race based reasons (e.g. economics). Because of this non-racial motivation, individuals leading and managing institutions often do not believe that their institutions are being racist. Furthermore, it is even more difficult for the institutions to change the behavior. For example, some teaching hospitals do pelvic exams on unconscious female black patients in surgery without the patient’s consent in order to train interns, and the hospitals do so without a conscious desire to discriminate. These hospitals would fit into this category of reluctant racist. As Kwame Ture (a.k.a. Stokely Carmichael) and Charles Hamilton explained in their landmark book, “Black Power: The Politics of Liberation”:

Colonization Societies are not to be confused with the Anti-Slavery Societies that shared the political stage during the same period. They had an entirely different and conflicting agenda. For example, anti-slavery proponents wanted gradual or immediate emancipation of slaves while advocates of colonization sought to remove blacks from America and have them emigrate to Africa. Both saw themselves as coming to the aid of an abused and inferior race.

Toward an Understanding of Prejudice and Racism

Back in May, Congress authorized the creation of the “Bureau of Colored Troops” enable the recruitment of African-American soldiers for the Union cause. They became known as the United States Colored Troops who fought as segregated units led by white officers. Faced with Northern racism in its most pejorative and condescending form, while considered mere livestock in the South, 178,000 free blacks and ex-slaves would serve in the armed forces over the last two years of the war. They laid their lives on the line by serving in combat units to earn their freedom. By the end of the war, every tenth man was a USCT soldier.

Indeed, as discussed in "Race and Mortality Revisited" (at 340), one of the more remarkable longstanding misinterpretations of data on group differences involves the significance observers have attributed to the fact that relative socioeconomic differences in adverse health outcomes are greater among British civil servants than in the UK population at large. They have invariably done so while failing to recognize implications of the fact that British civil servants are healthier than the UK population at large. See also my 2006 Chance (at 50) and my 2014 Minneapolis Star Tribune regarding the failure of Norway and Sweden to recognize the connection between their comparatively large relative socioeconomic differences in mortality and the fact that that they are comparatively healthy countries. See generally "Race and Mortality Revisited" (at 339-341), “,” Society (Jan./Feb. 2000), and the of my November 2015 University of Massachusetts Medical School Seminar titled “” regarding the universal failure to recognize that relative demographic differences in adverse outcomes tend to be comparatively large, while relative differences in the corresponding favorable outcomes tend to be comparatively small, in circumstances where the adverse outcomes are comparatively uncommon.

One cannot appraise the significance of the larger ratio in the UK, however, without understanding that such ratio will tend to be greater in the UK simply because overall rates of incarceration are much lower in the UK than in the US. But the UK civil servants and researchers that produced the Lammy report are no more likely to figure that out than legislators in , or education officials in or are to recognize the association between their comparatively large relative racial differences in incarceration or suspension rates and the fact that they have comparatively low overall rates for those outcomes.
