“Discrimination laundering also aligns with powerful ideological movements in American law, organizations, and society. Individuals and individual agency dominate an American discourse of liberal individualism. In so many ways we tend in American culture to emphasize individuals over all else, as causal actors and as victims, from the rhetoric of choice to that of civil rights. Neo-liberalism takes this emphasis on individuals even further to position the individuals as rational and empowered participants in an unfettered capitalist and increasingly globalized market.”

Aren’t corporations considered people though?
