White Fragility

by Diangelo, Robin

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. In this “vital, necessary, and beautiful book” (Michael Eric Dyson), antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and “allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to ‘bad people’ (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 (from publishers website).

If I could give this book less than one star I would. This book is about as bad as a book can get. It is one lie after another. It is nothing but propaganda for Black Lives Matter--a leftist, communist, marxist organization which has no place in American Society. If this book has become required reading in schools, God help us. If this garbage can be foisted on young impressionable minds without impunity, which how the left wants things—they will accept on other opinion except their own—won't even let a person speak out--our country will become like Venezuela or China or Russia. We will no longer exist as a nation of law and order and equal opportunity. There is no such thing as systemic racism in this country. Yes, there are racists--both white AND black, and of other ethnic backgrounds as well--in our nation, but those numbers are really the exception. Most people are good and clean and decent, and will help their neighbor when there is trouble. This author is purely an intellectual idiot!!!! That's what too much of the wrong kind of learning will do for you. And what is really wrong in our country—liberal colleges who teach such trash. And trying to shame us into accepting this rot will not work. Don't buy this book. Read the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence to find out what our country is REALLY all about. Read the Bible. Read Common Sense by Thomas Paine. Read Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglas instead, Martin Luther King, any of conservative thinker who understands what life and this country is all about—freedom, free speech, free market, free to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
