From Scribd: About the Book

Robin DiAngelo is an anti-racist educator responsible for writing the New York Times bestselling book White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism. The book addresses white people’s reactions when challenged about race and the haunting realization that these reactions maintain racial inequality in our society.

White fragility refers explicitly to the emotions experienced when white people are challenged racially. Some of these emotions might include anger, fear, and guilt and surface in the form of either argumentation or silence.

Sadly, it’s these behaviors that maintain the white racial equilibrium and puts a screeching halt to any discussions worthwhile in terms of cross-racial dialogue. By redefining commonly used words such as prejudice, discrimination, racism, and aversive racism, DiAngelo sheds vital light on our society’s rather dark corner.

This in-depth exploration shows where white fragility originates from and develops over time, how it guards racial inequality, and what we can do as a society to engage in a more constructive manner moving forward.

    Premise unproven, unfalsifiable, strips people of individuality, casts racial groups as antagonistic stereotypes, and of course the solution is to buy her seminar. ?

    You don't need to be conservative to find BS in this book. The author doesn't need to white wash any of the American History to say all these. For example, she was basically saying that America had become more racist than the Jim Crow era, based on the quote "In some ways, racist's adaptations over time are more sinister than concrete rules such as Jim Crow". How the hell did this become NYT Best Seller?

    Poorly written, full of baseless ideas and opinions, not sure why its listed under science fiction but it's certainly fiction.

    Very genalized and lacks evidence or citation. is more of an opinion and if you do not read it or like it you are therefore, racist. I would like to learn more about this topic but this is not the book!

    Actually just The Courage to Heal with "childhood sexual molestation" changed to "racism," and the perpetrator and the victim switched. This book is one long circular argument: if you are white, you are racist because you are white in a "white supremacist" society. Society is racist and white supremacist because white people are racist and perpetuate racism no matter what they do because they are racist. Even if you think you're not racist and feel upset at being caricatured in this manner, your "white tears" (exactly the same tears cried by white women in the past while accusing innocent black men for rape!) is proof of your racism, because you cannot be white in a white supremacist society without being racist. Etc., etc., etc.
    I found a quote mine in the introduction attributed to Charles Baudelaire (I am a historian of radical French poets), and a number of historical inaccuracies in DiAngelo's book. The rest she apparently just makes up without any cited evidence. This book lacks any falsifiability, making it no better than any creationist text. It lack rigor, and actually is condescending and racist toward people of color! It manages to insult everyone, and especially one's intelligence. (Don't seek out affirmation from other white people, and don't seek to ask the experiences of people of color - it's not their job to educate you! Stay in your white bubble and shell out more money to take DiAngelo's seminars so you can contemplate your white navel. Don't look for solutions - that's white fragility, too!)
    This book is toxic, defeatist and narcissistic, apparently popular among well-off white women who have NEVER lived in a diverse neighborhood, taken public transit, worked with people in color in low-paying jobs, or visited a developing country! It's so myopic, it suggests Black History Month should focus more on white people and their hand-wringing about their "whiteness." (Hoo boy, doesn't that sound like FUN?) DiAngelo has apparently made millions off this book. What a pity that more people cannot see this is just "Satanic panic" applied to racial relations.
