Publisher Description

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.

    " Easily the most racist book ever written. To think Black Americans cannot make it in America without their "White Woke Librals" to do it for them is without question the definition of racism. "

    " Anyone who needs to call themselves an 'antiracist educator' is a psychopath, especially in a book alleging a negative quality is owned by an entire race. "

    " I’m a conservative black woman and I try to understand different points of view. This book is just silly. We do not live in a racist society. Quit with all the white guilt. I know more racist blacks by far than white people. White people are racist you say, you are teaching hate. You should be ashamed of yourself. Give your money you are making off of preaching hate to the communities of underprivileged black Americans. You should be ashamed of yourself. This book is a joke. "

    " A good start for "white" people who don't want to talk about racism. It is a beginner's book and I hope that if you are someone who finds this book "eye-opening" it would be an excellent idea to use this book as a jumping-off point for reading some truly amazing black literature: The Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison, Native Son by Richard Write, anything by James Baldwin, most anything by Toni Morrison, The History of White People by Nell Painter, The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander this is just a start.
