About the Original Book: In White Fragility: Why It’s so Hard for White People to Talk About Racism, Robin DiAngelo explains how white people misunderstand the concept of racism and therefore, refuse to talk about it openly. She uses her experience as a diversity trainer to explain how America is inherently racist and that all white people must be courageous enough to see their complicity in the racist system. White Fragility digs deep into white culture and history to reveal some hidden facets of white society that many wouldn’t openly expose. DiAngelo’s goal is to teach white people how racism works at an individual level so that they can understand just how damaging it is to society as a whole - and hopefully, so they can fix it.
