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

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Robin DiAngelo

Narrated By: Amy Landon

Publisher: Beacon Press

Date: June 2018

Duration: 6 hours 21 minutes

Summary:

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.

    I’m not sure which was worse, listening to my gps reading a crappy book or subjecting myself to such moronic ideas given directions that would drive a sane man into the river. If you wish to affirm your white guilt read on. As for me I have nothing to be guilty of

    DiAngelo gives language to help articulate things that have been on my mind. The time is ripe for these thoughts. Society has progressed to a point where discussion of whiteness can be held with civility and with an open mind.

    Great book that really challenges you if you are open to it. I really enjoy being being uncomfortable and exploring my own positions and thoughts on the subject.

    Everyone needs to read this book, especially everyone wary of entering into conversations about race. This book makes sense of a universal, complex, highly charged reality in such a way that liberated people to deconstruct the structure without drawing enemy lines.

    Brought me to a new level of awareness. Is helping me with my own examination of dealing with people of color, understanding some of the terms in the book and explaining and dealing with whites after having such dialogue.
