White Fragility: Why it's so Hard for White People to Talk about Racism

By reading this koob, you will learn why it is so hard for white people to talk about racism and their role in it.

You will also learn about:

  • The ways we are conditioned to believe in white supremacy.

  • The subtle ways racism can be expressed.

  • Why it is so hard for white people to admit they have racial prejudice.

  • How this denial and inability to talk or think about race helps perpetuate a racist system.

  • How you can work on yourself to become less racist.

When white people in America and elsewhere think about racism, they tend to think about how it manifests in violent and hateful ways, but fail to see the more subtle, yet systemic, ways racial prejudices affect us all. As such, it is very hard for white people, particularly "good, progressive" white people, to engage in conversations about racism and, particularly, to recognize and overcome their own racism.

I think that telling grown white people what to do and how to think is not an answer. This information should be taught to white people as children. Which kind of tells me that your book is like a bandaid. Just something to cover up the bleeding. No one knows what kind of cut you suffered underneath that bandaid tho, do they? You can DRAG a horse to water but you can't make her drink it. Don't you know that most black people already know the information on that book? Common sense tells us.
