White Fragility

Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism

Robin Diangelo

This book delves into the counterproductive reactions white people have in the face of challenges to their assumptions about race. The author, anti-racist educator Robin DiAngelo, looks at the emotions and behaviors that make up "white fragility," which include anger, fear, guilt, argumentation, and silence. These reactions sustain racial inequality and hinder constructive cross-racial dialogue. DiAngelo offers an in-depth exploration of how white fragility develops and what can be done to overcome it.

I've recommended the book White Fragility on here many times, and this interview is a great place to start. If you're a white person who believes you're not racist, please read this article. And then go read the book.      source

A reminder for white people new to this work. You may not be ready for her book White Fragility so if you're looking for identity work, start with this one: What Does It Mean to Be White? Y'all gotta understand yourselves.      source
