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

White Fragility: Why It’s so Hard for White People to Talk about Racism by Robin DiAngelo has been on my shelf for a while. I read What Does it Mean to be White (reviewed here) in a book group at school and heard her speak at a conference. White Fragility was a quick read, and one that reiterated a number of the same ideas in What Does it Mean to be White. However, there were a number of good take-aways, especially in the last chapter, “Where Do We Go from Here.” This is a good primer on the concept of white fragility and includes useful information and things to think about in one’s own experience.
