Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I review everything I read - which is a lot of YA and thrillers. I'd love to hear what you're reading, so please leave me a note!

WHITE FRAGILITY

WHITE FRAGILITY

This book is so important. It’s written concisely and smartly and is an absolute must-read. It opened my eyes to how much ingrained racism we actually have, and how to start recognizing it and changing our behaviours. 5 ⭐️, it took me 2.5 hours to read. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“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.”
