Contemporary "Structures" of Racism

A Sartrean Contribution to Resisting Racial Injustice

Justin I. Fugo

This paper develops an account of racism as rooted in social structural processes. Using Sartre, I attempt to give a general analysis of what I refer to as the “structures” of our social world, namely the practico-inert, serial collectives, and social groups. I then apply this analysis to expose and elucidate “racist structures,” specifically those that are oftentimes assumed to be ‘race neutral’. By highlighting structures of racial oppression and domination, I aim to justify: 1) the imperative of creating conditions free from oppression and domination, over the adherence to ‘ideal’ principles which perpetuate racial injustice; 2) the shared responsibility we have collectively to resist and transform social structural processes that continue to produce racial injustice.

Friedrich-Wilhelm Marquardt

A Theological-Biographical Sketch

Andreas Pangritz

On 25 May 2002, Friedrich-Wilhelm Marquardt, Professor Emeritus for Systematic Theology at the Free University (FU) of Berlin, was called out of life, as the death announcement of his family put it, 'in the midst of a happy spring walk'. The readers would have known him above all as a tireless worker for the renewal of the relationship between Christians and Jews. The reflections concerning the encounter between Christians and Jews, the recognition of the shared responsibility of Christians for the National-Socialist murder of the Jews, but also the meaning of the return of Israel to her Land and the founding of the State of Israel were pulled by Marquardt into the center of his Dogmatics perhaps more than by any other Christian theologian. It was a long journey to that point.
