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.… (mer)

Change Starts with You

Since its publication in 2018 and constant reprinting right up to now, much has been written about Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility, both good and bad. It’s interesting that much of the negative commentary focuses on things like DiAngelo’s methods, her diversity training classes, her attitude, that she condescends to Black people (by infantilizing them), that she ignores changing the institutions fostering racism, and the like, everything around the central issue.

That, of course, is that we Americans live in a white racist society, actually a white supremacy society, which reacts badly when Black people push against that supremacy. Further, to DiAngelo’s point, apart from the out and out proud to be white racists, we probably don’t recognize that we harbor racist beliefs, even though the vast majority of us whites where weaned on white superiority. Logically, how could that be otherwise, given, again, DiAngelo’s point about institutionalized racism?

Perhaps you take umbrage at these ideas, but your, to use her term, fragility, doesn’t make them untrue. Just think back on an incident, maybe the protests around the George Floyd murder, or maybe some smaller incident you observed at work, a restaurant, etc. Haven’t you ever felt that little sensation that coalesces into something like, “Of course,” quickly corrected, and then felt guilty about? Nothing to feel guilty about, so long as you are aware and striving to overcome these deep-seated emotions, not to assuage your own feelings but to ultimately make ours a juster society. And that, too, is part of her message.

Some have made the point of criticizing her for not attacking the institutions and practices that perpetuate racism. True, this book isn’t about institutions, it’s about you, the individual. If we can overcome our own internalized racist attitudes then we as part of those institutions can change them. Sure, we’d all like this to go away overnight. But racism in America predates the birth of the United States; it’s over four hundred years in the making here and permeates every part of our society. That’s not something that will change over night nor en masse. It will change person by person. So, why not start now by reading this book with an open mind?

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.
