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.… (mere)

I dithered about how to rate and review this book. The content is important and there's really nothing in here I actually disagreed with. I was familiar in general with the concept of white fragility and many of the ideas in the book, so I read it with two goals in mind--one was, did it offer me anything new about the idea, and two, would I recommend it to others?

On point one, not much. That's not necessarily a flaw. The book intends to be an introduction, for the most part, and it does it well, again for the most part. It reads like an extended essay, and it could have been sharpened with some more specific examples.

On point two... that's a little harder. DiAngelo has aimed her book at a specific niche: people who are already progressive but unfamiliar with this specific concept. She tends to write in a more abstract way and doesn't entirely avoid jargon. Clearly, judging by the reviews, this was a niche worth targeting, but I think she could have made her work more approachable. (This is not synonymous with "dumbing it down": I don't think Ijeoma Oluo dumbed her book down at all, but she wrote it in a very conversational, engaging way.) ( )

Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility: Why it’s so hard for white people to talk about racism, is a timely and informative book that teaches important lessons about racism. The author paints a picture of the American society that has been shaped and embedded with a White culture. This predominance is experienced by Americans in all facets of their daily lives. It’s in education, politics, government, media, sports, science, and are the underpinnings of everyone’s experiences.
This ubiquitous culture has impacted conservatives, liberals, and progressives. It didn’t matter if an individual was Black, White, Latino, Native American, or LBGTQ. The main issue DiAngelo pointed out is how to deal with these White supremacy ideas? How can someone become an antiracist? This isn’t easy, since many White people have difficulty talking about race, and won’t admit that they are living in a racist culture.
Because of this whiteness shaping of minds, how can someone attempt to correct this problem? The writer was pushing to have racial sensitivity training as a first step. It will be good for Whites to acknowledge that racism is a serious societal problem. It does no good to sweep this fact under the rug by saying, “I’m color blind. I don’t see race. I’ve Black friends. I march in the 1960s for racial equality, or I’ve been there, and done that, because I happen to live in a racially diverse neighborhood.”
DiAngelo’s message is that White Americans need to grow multi-culturally. They should acknowledge the evils of racism, and learn from equity, and diversity programs about race. They must practice positive perspectives, and empathize with people of color about their experiences of racism. Such a growth the author sees as a lifelong exercise. It never stops. It should be everyone’s goal to banish discrimination, racial profiling, racism, and be racially literate. White people should undertake such an exercise to rid themselves of this social cancer that’s eating away at the fabric of the American society. This perspective will have great benefits, for each American will be able to pursue their dreams, and live to their full potential. ( )

I read most of this book but I had to return it to the library before I could finish. It is heavily waitlisted so I couldn't renew and really should buy it. While I have gone to quite a few anti-racist trainings over the years, I can never seem to find the right words to call out white people on their shit, especially without losing mine. This book, I feel, provides the language of explaining to white people why their ridiculous sensitivity to discussions of race is so over the top. Even though it rehashes a lot of things, they are things that need to be revisited again and again. ( )

nonfiction/race relations
on audio; narrator voice: not my favorite, but you get used to it.
written by a white diversity trainer, this attempts to broach the subject of systemic racism to white people who might otherwise be automatically offended (threatened, angry, etc.) that they may have benefited from the system, and that there is anything amiss with the overall culture of the society they grew up in. As such it is a very tricky thing to pull off, but if people are able to set their first reactions aside and see/hear what this author (who is herself white) has to say, this measured and logical treatment might help open a dialogue..
I agreed with a lot of what she said right off the bat (as a person of color I have both experienced racism and benefited from it) and so thought, maybe I don't even need to finish this book, but I stuck with it and I'm glad I did (she also talks about the trickiness of broaching the subject with folks who may react with white fragility and also being more aware of her own faults--even as a relatively "woke" white person--I also thought this was really good since obviously I'm not perfect either). Thoughtful and interesting and hopefully will help us all make steps in the right direction. ( )

This is a fine book; I think I expected to learn a lot more than I did but that's not to say it isn't really important to learn, reinforce, and have articulated for the first or second or third etc. time. I found the writing pretty bleh, however.

CHOTINER: So you consider yourself a racist right now?

DiANGELO: Yes. I will always have a racist worldview and biases. The way I look at it is I’m really clear that I do less harm than I used to. I perpetrate that racism less often. I’m not defensive at all when I realize—whether myself or it’s been brought to my attention—that I’ve just perpetrated a piece of it. I have really good repair skills. None of those are small things because they mean I do less harm.
