Inhaltsangabe

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.

Kritikerstimmen

“[T]houghtful, instructive, and comprehensive... This slim book is impressive in its scope and complexity; DiAngelo provides a powerful lens for examining, and practical tools for grappling with, racism today.” (Publishers Weekly)

“As a woman of color, I find hope in this book because of its potential to disrupt the patterns and relationships that have emerged out of long-standing colonial principles and beliefs. White Fragility is an essential tool toward authentic dialogue and action. May it be so!” (Shakti Butler, president of World Trust and director of Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible)

“A rare and incisive examination of the system of white body supremacy that binds us all as Americans... With authenticity and clarity, she provides the antidote to white fragility and a road map for developing white racial stamina and humility. White Fragility loosens the bonds of white supremacy and binds us back together as human beings.” (Resmaa Menakem, author of My Grandmother’s Hands and Rock the Boat)

My future training tool book

This book has finally given me the toolbox that I need to run workshops and seminars that will help white people understand their actions. This book has also made me look at the table from the other side - the white people's perspective so that I am able to help guide them to understand where are their landmines and how they too can navigate in being more conscious on when they are being racial and also to understand that their actions leave scares on those people that they are directing it to. Thanks so much for this "toolbox"

this book can help to begin the healing

This book can begin the healing and truthful conversations we need to have about race. I am an African American man and speaking from my experience. If all of my white, loving, kind, intelligent, progressive friends all read this book then My ability to be open and and honest about my experience would be immensely strengthened allowing us to connect as friends and fellow humans even deeper and easier. If you believe that black lives matter or all lives matter or any variation of that I implore you to take the step of reading this book. it is a matter of life and death for people of color.

Entertainingly paranoid

Unbelievable, how she projects racism into everything and draws arbitrary conclusions. Feeling, not thinking.

Auf den Punkt gebracht, ohne etwas schön zu reden

Ich habe viele Bücher über Antirassismus gelesen bzw gehört. Ich fand es großartig, dass die Autorin berichten konnte, ohne etwas zu minimieren oder sich selbst zu zensieren. Das liegt möglicherweise daran, dass sie selbst weiß ist. Schwarzen Autoren gelingt dieser Seilakt nicht immer, da sie Angst haben, ihr "weißes Publikum" zu verlieren. Ich würde es allen weiterempfehlen, die bereits einen Überblick in Rassismus haben und sich ihrer Position in der Gesellschaft klar sind.

Highly recommend this book to everyone

I really liked this book, how the author patiently describes the issue of systemic racism and why every white person should reflect on their behavior rather than assuming one is not racist and that it doesn't concern him/her. I hope that many will listen to it, internalize and use the learnings of this important book! Almost unthinkable if people would suddenly start interrupting racist behavior instead of protecting it, how things could really change for the better.

A necessary book, though nlcould be better

Meh... i wish they had focused on triggering empathy rather than lecturing. An excellent topic though.
