“White Fragility: Why it’s so hard for white people to talk about racism” This book is radical. I thought I knew my shit, but I didn’t. One of the most important books I’ve ever read. Can’t recommend enough.      source
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
