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