Family & Relationships. Self-Improvement. Sociology. Nonfiction. HTML: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.… (més)

There is a lot of good information in this book for white people when dealing with racial issues and people of other races. There were quite a few ideas & words that I was unfamiliar with (white frame, habitus, etc), which I felt could have been better explained. The author has a rambling style and at times seems to beat around the bush. She really shines when she uses concrete examples to illustrate the concepts she is trying to get across. ( )

This is a really good book. I think there are some folks who are critical of it, but I think it's an important one. It's a white woman talking to other white people, which is the most important aspect. Members of the majority of any social identity group (categories based on gender, race, national origin, etc.)--especially those ones who really actually need to understand and internalize what's being presented--are most likely to listen to those with whom they share that characteristic. (In this case, a white person is more likely to listen to a white person about race.)

It's a relatively short book but it is dense in content. It's not a book that you have to read straight though from chapter one to the end, so it's nice to be able to skip around. I have lots of underlines and highlights because some of the stuff she talks about feel like she took it directly from my own life, so I think it's relatable to non-white people too.

Are there other books out there that talk about this subject matter better? Perhaps. But this book was never intended to be the only one read on the subject. I think it's a great primer for people of any race who want to understand racism in the current era, how racism didn't disappear when LBJ signed a piece of paper, and how the social constructs in which we live (laws, policies, traditions) serve to further racism in our current society. (And replace "racism" in that prior sentence, and you can see how social constructs impact other identity groups as well.) I really hope some folks will read this in the spirit in which it is written--to educate, provide prospective, and to be a gentle, non-accusatory introduction to race and racism in the present day--and have some strong takeaways. Few people are trying to blame someone living in 2024 on the acts of their g-g-g-g-grandparent from 1850, but we need to recognize how the society that was built then impacts our current structures, and rebuild them.

It's very enlightening. It has opened my eyes to a new view of white privilege and my unknowing racism. ( )

I won my copy of this book free through a Goodreads giveaway.
My cats always seem entertained when I read a book like this because I tend to debate the book outloud as I read. If only I got in the habit of taking notes on paper about my criticisms! But, thankfully, this was not a book I was critiquing for a class. That said, I found this book less than convincing, and its brash, arrogant tone seems calculated for shock value rather than for actual convincing, persuasive argument.
DiAngelo does a decent job of explaining that 'white fragility' exists, and that it is a problem. She seems to have reasonable experience to back up her claims, too, with all her anecdotes about racism workshops and presentations she has led. So, as unconvincing as her book was, I did not come away from this book thinking DiAngelo was wrong. I had some issues with her obsession with Black/White racism, but that is a problem I have with a lot of literature on racism by people outside my region; here our 'big' racism issue is to do with Hispanic/White tensions and legal/illegal immigrants versus citizens born in the US. So, I felt like I was reading a book about a foreign culture, not a book geared towards all of the US, yet this book asserts that it is equally salient everywhere in the US.
I also had issues with this book as a person with Aspergers, which I thought was interesting not as criticism of DiAngelo so much as an observation on how neurotypical-dominant our culture is. I found it interesting to see how DiAngelo says most people think about race and racism, because that too felt foreign, I suspect because she was describing how neurotypical people think about other people.
So, for readers in areas where the dominant race issues are on Black/White lines and especially for readers who are neurotypical, not Aspies/high-functioning autistics, this might be a far more convincing book. It may still be frustrating, since it focuses so much on bludgeoning its readers with the existence of white fragility, while offering very few concrete, useful solutions for dealing with racism. But for the right audience this book might be helpful to at least start some beneficial discussions. ( )

I still have so much to learn, but this book was so informative. ( )

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.
