You gave the same definition of testimonial epistemic injustice that I did in an earlier post, and made the same connection to To Kill a Mockingbird I'd already made, using the same exam0le of Atticus Finch as an opposing view, why?
Also, how can they be to blame for their prejudice but not their cruelty? It does not seem logical to say this, as their cruelty was the result of their prejudice, and if you absolve them of one, you must absolve them of the other.
