    About The Book

    The 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.

    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, anti-racist educator Robin DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what can be done to engage more constructively.

    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.
