Such a theory suggests that we need to answer the following question in judging the moral permissibility of discriminatory shopping: Is this act of discriminatory shopping likely to undermine the public equality of our society? To answer this question in turn requires that we check two ways in which public equality could be undermined: first, by people interpreting our actions as sending a message of social inferiority and internalized shame; and second, by exacerbating and amplifying preexisting relationships of injustice.
