White Fragility - Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism

Author(s): Robin DiAngelo; Michael Eric Dyson (Foreword by)

Politics

Explores the counterproductive reactions white people have when discussing racism that serve to protect their positions and maintain racial inequality In this groundbreaking and timely book, antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility. Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo explores how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.
