9780807047415
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.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Robin DiangeloPublisher: Beacon PressPublished: 06/26/2018ISBN: 9780807047415Pages: 192Weight: 0.65lbsSize: 8.80h x 5.90w x 0.60dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 04/23/2018Library Journal 06/15/2018 pg. 84Shelf Awareness 07/13/2018
