    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.

    Commentaires

    “[T]houghtful, instructive, and comprehensive... This slim book is impressive in its scope and complexity; DiAngelo provides a powerful lens for examining, and practical tools for grappling with, racism today.” (Publishers Weekly)

    “As a woman of color, I find hope in this book because of its potential to disrupt the patterns and relationships that have emerged out of long-standing colonial principles and beliefs. White Fragility is an essential tool toward authentic dialogue and action. May it be so!” (Shakti Butler, president of World Trust and director of Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible)

    “A rare and incisive examination of the system of white body supremacy that binds us all as Americans... With authenticity and clarity, she provides the antidote to white fragility and a road map for developing white racial stamina and humility. White Fragility loosens the bonds of white supremacy and binds us back together as human beings.” (Resmaa Menakem, author of My Grandmother’s Hands and Rock the Boat)

    Noble but flawed attempt to deal with racism

    The author offers helpful tips for discussing race, but grounds her arguments in a postmodernist philosophy that is myopic and ignorant of global history. Any definition of racism needs to look at more than just American history. Racism is more than just an American social construct, but is rooted in every society. Her misunderstandings on race fail to hold up when looking at the racism of Nazism, the Indian caste system, the Rwandan Genocide, or the Rape of Nanking, just to name a few counterexamples. Failure to note the biological roots, as well as the cultural roots of racism, prevents a coherent solution to a pernicious problem.

    Word salad

    The only value this has is as a window into the mind of a certain kind of person. The author uses redefinitions of commonly understood language, personal anecdotes, and ideological jargon to lay out a pretty bizarre perspective on race. The work is absolutely pseudointellectual and fails to cite authoritative studies or data in favor of Beyonce quotes. I’m not sure what type of person would find this author to be compelling. Dogmatically this is a complete trainwreck.

    Repeditive and Derivative

    Since the author gives presentations of race, hearing her talk about her insight and experience on this important topic seamed like it would add to her book but having heard her book, I see why they choose a very calm, professional reader. The sample covers the the tone and depth of the book. She is a sociologist and knows all she need to about her audience whom she considers ignorant, uneducated, racist white supremacists members of the white collective or Klan. She's heard it all before so the only feedback she wants is thank you, She make an example of one participant who gives the wrong feedback. In another example she gives, another person is driven out of the room and coworkers think she may be having a heart attack. The writer is upset that this and the possible death will draw attention from what she is saying, Near the end she explains that she is un-white and sees nothing positive in white people. Her actual material on racism is mostly other peoples work and opinion. The material seems to be used to show she went to colege, reads the right books and to expand this to book length rather that open people to talk about race. Some people in her line of work, particularly those with her apparent attitude, may like and relate to this book and her experiences and frustrations in talking about race. Others,however, like her participant from Canada, may find this makes talking about race less likely. She did have a piece of good advise that bares repeating. We should seek more to understand than to be understood and to console than be consoled. I had already gotten that advise from St Francis but its still good advise.

    Encourages Readers to Focus on Racial Identity

    DiAngelo aims to increase the reader's sense of white identity in this book. It is unabashedly white identitarian (p. 149) and she admits that according to the dictionary definition of racism, she is promoting racist views in White Fragility (p. 13). DiAngelo then flips the narrative, however. She uses the same foundations as overtly racist groups to help the reader focus on awareness of racial identity with the ultimate aim at undoing racial harm through recognizing ones own conscious and unconscious racially problematic behavior. Basically she promotes white readers owning their white identity as a means to help them recognize the associated responsibility and the collective group harm that has been committed against marginalized races by the identity. Many will not agree with DiAngelo's repudiation of Dr. King's famous "I Have a Dream" statement, (p. 41) "I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character". What needs to be very clear to the reader though, is that DiAngelo is approaching racism from an entirely different angle from King. She is redefining racism. She promotes wholeheartedly that color-blindness is itself racist. She calls it "Color Blind Racism". So in summary, DiAngelo is approaching racism from a very different angle than what most are used to. With some, this will resonate, with others, this will not. Promoting identitarianism is a very controversial thing to do, and so the reader should think deeply before jumping in whole-heartedly. From my own personal experience, the adoption of these views in my close social group have been destructive and have caused probably lifelong damage to previously very deep and loving relationships. The fruit of this philosophy in a social group manifests in a very similar way to other forms of racial identitarianism. One is singled out specifically because of the color of their skin and is charged with responsibility simply because of who their parents were. So think long and hard before deciding whether you want to go down the road of racial identitarianism with DiAngelo.

    Racist Propaganda

    What a horrible book. And yes I get it. I just disagree with the premise. Furthermore, the term white fragility is a condescending term that is meant to shut down differing opinions and is equivalent to calling someone racist. If you are white, this book alleges, you are automatically racist. So, you can’t defend yourself, because you don’t have any control over the color of your skin. You are just supposed to accept this as fact and rely on others to provide a prescriptive remedy. Really? I have no issue with those that think this is the gospel. Maybe those that do are racist. However, I have lived a life with no hate in my heart and have treated all people equally and respectfully. Additionally, I’ve never had any problems discussing racism or other challenging issues. I’ve had a few conversations where others have tried to shut down the dialogue by claiming racism, white fragility, or using terms like anti-racist. These terms are an attempt to shut down debate. They are inappropriate to use if you are really trying to discuss issues and trying to change things for the better. They are only appropriate if your are trying to weaken and vilify others—in this case a whole group of people. The people pushing this narrative are just trying to further their agenda instead of trying to further our togetherness as humans. It has not reached its peak yet. Unfortunately, the anti-white movement continues unabated and it doesn’t matter anymore if you’re are a woman, gay, trans, etc. if you’re white, you are racist. And, even more disconcerting, if you’ve benefited from the “white” world, then you are just as racist. I heard this viewpoint recently from a tv production that was commenting on how some Asians and Latinos did not deserve protections because their high educational scores and wealth meant they have benefitted from the racist structures in the United States. Wow. Update 10/1/20 Please stop flagging my review. It has been taken down and reviewed by audible several times. This is another way to shut down differing opinions. There is nothing racist about my review.

    Smug, Manipulative and Void of Humanity

    There are so many problems with this book that it would take me a few hours to document them. Maybe I will do that at some point. In summary, the author redefines racism to include unconscious bias and concludes that any and all white people have these and are racists. If you object to the new definition or object to being called a racist under this new construct, then you suffer from a new invented condition called "White Fragility" and should be shamed repeatedly. Over and over and over. Her approach is manipulative, smug and void of humanity. It ignores the complexity of human existence and human interaction and, in my opinion creates less healthy and authentic interactions and relationships. Love and vulnerability beget change. Shame does not..

    Assumptive trash.

    Paints racism with a very broad and biased brush. Racism is real. It is not, however, limited to just “white” people. This book would suggest otherwise. Don’t waste your time.

    Lacking

    Lacking historical perspective and overwhelming biased by personal experiences which are not representative of the vast majority of non African Americans.

    Auf den Punkt gebracht, ohne etwas schön zu reden

    Ich habe viele Bücher über Antirassismus gelesen bzw gehört. Ich fand es großartig, dass die Autorin berichten konnte, ohne etwas zu minimieren oder sich selbst zu zensieren. Das liegt möglicherweise daran, dass sie selbst weiß ist. Schwarzen Autoren gelingt dieser Seilakt nicht immer, da sie Angst haben, ihr "weißes Publikum" zu verlieren. Ich würde es allen weiterempfehlen, die bereits einen Überblick in Rassismus haben und sich ihrer Position in der Gesellschaft klar sind.

    this book can help to begin the healing

    This book can begin the healing and truthful conversations we need to have about race. I am an African American man and speaking from my experience. If all of my white, loving, kind, intelligent, progressive friends all read this book then My ability to be open and and honest about my experience would be immensely strengthened allowing us to connect as friends and fellow humans even deeper and easier. If you believe that black lives matter or all lives matter or any variation of that I implore you to take the step of reading this book. it is a matter of life and death for people of color.

    My future training tool book

    This book has finally given me the toolbox that I need to run workshops and seminars that will help white people understand their actions. This book has also made me look at the table from the other side - the white people's perspective so that I am able to help guide them to understand where are their landmines and how they too can navigate in being more conscious on when they are being racial and also to understand that their actions leave scares on those people that they are directing it to. Thanks so much for this "toolbox"

    Highly recommend this book to everyone

    I really liked this book, how the author patiently describes the issue of systemic racism and why every white person should reflect on their behavior rather than assuming one is not racist and that it doesn't concern him/her. I hope that many will listen to it, internalize and use the learnings of this important book! Almost unthinkable if people would suddenly start interrupting racist behavior instead of protecting it, how things could really change for the better.

    Important message, horrible narrator

    Couldn't really enjoy or learn very much from this book, since I wasn't able to warm up to the narrator. Sounded like a computer voice, and was therefore hard to follow. I will buy the book and read it myself.

    Ganz okay..

    Aber auch teilweise sehr repetitiv im Inhalt und die ständigen, langen Aufzählungen haben mich doch sehr genervt. Ich fand auch due Sprecherin nicht besonders gut. Man gewöhnt sich dran, aber am Anfang fand ich die Stimme sehr monoton. Ich habe allerdings auch keine Erfahrung mit Hörbüchern.

    A necessary book, though nlcould be better

    Meh... i wish they had focused on triggering empathy rather than lecturing. An excellent topic though.
