Summary & Analysis of White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism | A Guide to the Book by Robin DiAngelo | So You Want to Talk About Race | Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?: And Other Conversations About Race | White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide | Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race | Stamped from the Beginning | The New Jim Crow
In this âvital, necessary, and beautiful bookâ (Michael Eric Dyson), antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and âallows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to âbad peopleâ (Claudia Rankine). 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 examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.
