White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism

Groundbreaking book exploring the counterproductive reactions white people have when discussing racism that serve to protect their positions and maintain racial inequality

Antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo first coined the term "white fragility" in 2011, and since then it's been invoked by critics from Samantha Bee to Charles Blow. "White fragility" refers to the defensive

The book raises striking and specific points about how as whites we have biases toward race while pretending we are colorblind. She states specific examples, and outlays practical way forward.

Most of the lower star ratings of this book seem to be exhibiting the exact fragility she outlines, and really only prove to drive her point home further.

Robin DiAngelo comes hard in this one and takes no prisoners. There are going to be many hurt feelings for those willing and courageous enough to delve into this examination of White Fragility.

“This book is unapologetically rooted in identity politics. I am white and am addressing a common white dynamic. I am mainly writing to a white audience; when I use the terms us and we, I am referring to the white collective.”

White Fragility is conceptualized as responses to conversations around race. Si

This is a powerful, essential book that encapsulates much of what DiAngelo has been cogently laying out in other articles and speeches. I appreciated having the thinking I have heard her articulate at events I have attended in one place. I am honored to host DiAngelo at my library for the release of this book.

Some incomplete notes from the end of the book (I should have been marking passages all along, but know I will read this again).

Summary: Explains white fragility, its sources, expressions, the challenge it poses to conversations about race, and a different way to engage.

You've been there. A conversation about race begins and quickly, tension settles in the room. You don't need a person of color to be present. The defensiveness is palpable and takes a variety of forms. For some the best defense is a good offense. In a conversation about the significance of the Black Lives Matter movement, someone pushes back and shifts th

This is a tough one to review. I'm going to revert to a pros and cons list:

Very insightful
Author has a lot of experience and knows what she's talking about
Lots of good advice
Made me see things in a different light
Made me question my own white fragility

Way too long
Very dry
Could have been more approachable
Still not comfortable being told about race by a white person. I realize she's super qualified and that, honestly, it's the job of white people to check our own behavior and privilege,
"I have a black friend!" "I don't see race." "Oh, these racists will die out eventually and things will get better." Sound familiar? These common refrains are often brought up in regards to discussing racism, particularly as defenses brought up by white people (although people of color may certainly use these excuses too!). Author DiAngelo takes the reader through an exploration of the concept of "white fragility", which is apparently a phrase she coined in 2011.

Short Review: I have been reading widely about racial issues and history over the past several years. There are so many essential books about racial history or memoirs of minorities. The path to learning about the impact of racism is long, but fairly clear. It is hard not to find a good book about different aspects of slavery, jim crow, immigration bias, discrimination in the economy or education or the justice system, etc.

What I have found less of and I think is important are the books directly

This book is a must-read for everyone. The one-star reviewers didn't even leave their thoughts, which is precisely why DiAngelo asked for open-mindedness; these people obviously shut down and rejected what they read (if they read it at all!).

DiAngelo approaches the topic from an academic perspective and backs up all of her facts, lending credibility to her research and book. Not to mention it has made me evaluate myself and my own actions, as well as those of my friends and families, and has ma

I won my copy of this book free through a Goodreads giveaway.
My cats always seem entertained when I read a book like this because I tend to debate the book outloud as I read. If only I got in the habit of taking notes on paper about my criticisms! But, thankfully, this was not a book I was critiquing for a class. That said, I found this book less than convincing, and its brash, arrogant tone seems calculated for shock value rather than for actual convincing, persuasive argument.

Having recently finished When They Call You a Terrorist about the black lives matter movement, White Fragility is a great follow-up. But even if you haven’t read the other, this is a necessary read for white people in the U.S.

Race relations are in a tough spot, especially with the current political climate. Many of us white people may have thought racism and discrimination were a thing of the past, but it is vital that we understand these things persist.

I read this book hungrily but haltingly because it was both nourishing and painful to read. According to Diangelo, discomfort is key to our growth and awareness, so I proceeded and tried to stay with the discomfort. I had to read and reread passages to absorb the magnitude of what she claimed. It is not a matter of if but when we perpetrate racism on people of color, and how will we respond? Her stories of white people reacting in anger and disbelief when they were told something they said was r ...more

I think I could have easily read this book in record time, but I intentionally slowed my process several times so that I could fully take in everything presented. It's a rather slim book yet tightly edited to waste no time getting its point across:

this country is racist.

And it's not just the hateful people, not just the ones who openly despise other races and nationalities, not just the white supremacy groups. Sadly, it's the culture itself and, therefore, all of us. Even the good folks who woul

DiAngelo is a white women who is addressing the difficulties that white people typically have when dealing with the issue of race. She discusses fear, resentment, denial and many more emotions and behaviors that white people have when confronted with their part in maintaining racism, which she is clear to point out is a systemic issue, not an issue of people being prejudiced or discriminatory. Given the amount of overt and dog whistle racism we see, largely stimulated by the current Trump admini ...more

I received this book free from a Goodreads giveaway. This book is an important read. I had considered myself racially aware. I read to try to educate myself on race relations and can often identify racial issues in the media, for example. But after reading this book, I realize I still have work to do. Thank you for this enlightenment.
Jul 09, 2018 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
I am in absolute awe as to how succinct the analysis of white fragility is. Diangelo defines her terms, convincingly lays her groundwork in how many white people are socialized and systematically exposes the social and psychological defenses that are used in white fragility. I wish I could make every white person read this!

Even though I know quite a bit about this topic (hence the rating), and the author, from her work on the amazing ‘Seeing White’ podcast, I still found this book to be quite informative! It is a great read for those looking for resources and guidance on dismantling white supremacy.

While I have some disagreements, I found it quite helpful to understanding this perspective and took away some personal actions. I like the distinction between racial biased actions and racism.

An essential read for white folks seeking to gain tools for examining our own white identity. A key tool in being a white anti-racist ally.

“Unfortunately, aversive racism only protects racism, because we can’t challenge our racial filters if we can’t consider the possibility that we have them. Of course, some whites explicitly avow racism. We might consider these whites actually more aware of, and honest about, their biases than those of us who consider ourselves open-minded yet who have rarely thought critically about the biases we inevitably hold or how we may be expressing them.” 0 likes
