Why, oh why, is it so hard for many white people to talk about racism? This book explores the concept of White Fragility as a barrier that restricts knowledge, shuts down conversations before they start, and invites us to lie to ourselves.
Do the expressions white privilege, inclusion, and unconscious bias all kind of sound somewhat neutral, bland, pleasant even? They definitely fall short when used to address a institutional system of racist oppression. It's like, how in Winter in Minnesota, folks will say it's a bit chilly while your nostrils are literally freezing together when you breathe. But how can we, as a whole society, be better?
This New York Times best-selling book exploring the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged, and how these reactions maintain racial inequality. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.
