1. Racism and racists: some conundrums judenrein , or ‘clean of Jews’. The Nazis were in no doubt that Jews were a distinct race and posed a threat to the Aryan race to which authentic Germans supposedly belonged. With hindsight, it is possible to see that many of the dilemmas that have accompanied the proliferation of the notion of racism were present from the beginning. The idea that Jews were a distinct race was given currency by Nazi racial science. But before that, there was little consensus that Jews were a distinct race. Does that make it inappropriate to describe

4. Take the money and run Playing the trust game You’re at an unfamiliar bar, chatting to a new acquaintance, Daniel, when an economist approaches with a glint in her eye and a wallet full of cash. She offers you ten dollars – the money is yours to keep, and you can pocket it right away if you like. But you have another option. If you give some or all of the ten dollars to Daniel, the economist will triple the gift – if you hand over four dollars, the economist will add another eight, so that Daniel gets a

6. New racisms? racist . However, even self-confessed racists appear to have as little agreement about how many races exist and how exactly they are to be differentiated from each other as the supporters of the concept of race in the past. This is simply because humanity cannot be divided into races. Racism without races? But if races do not really exist and have never existed, and few people now admit to being racist, what makes it possible for responsible researchers in the social sciences, journalists, politicians, and large numbers of ordinary citizens to claim that racism is still widespread

7. Racist identities: ambivalence, contradiction, and commitment Let us begin with Kilroy-Silk, again. I expressed the judgement above that his remarks on ‘Arabs’ constituted a relatively strong form of racialization, and thereby had already entered the terrain of racism by using some of its key elements. Furthermore, his cavalier description of Arabs as inferior meant that the charge of racism has further plausibility, although I must stress that this is not the same as labelling him a racist in some absolute, definitive sense. In support of Kilroy-Silk, he and others cited the frequent appearance of British ethnic minority individuals on
