This chapter explicates and analyzes typical strategies agents use to avoid responsibility in relation to structural injustice. It discusses four such strategies: reification; the denial of connection; the demands of immediacy; and the claim that none of one's roles calls for correcting injustice. It explains how in each case the structure of action in society makes each avoidance strategy intelligible and makes its recurrence likely.
