White Fragility

Review “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism”:

It offers very interesting food for thought, some of the arguments were a bit disruptive to my white fragility and that means the book accomplishes its purpose.
On the other hand, I found it a bit repetitive and while the author explained how to recognize “systemic” racism and how to accept the fact that we grew up with a racist mindset, I think she glossed over how to recognize racism within everyday social relationships. It would have been helpful to learn how to recognize racist patterns in everyday life.

Also, I think some situations are only relative to experience in the American context. It would be interesting to read something like this written by a European.
