“Is it possible that because I am white, there are some racial dynamics that I can’t see?” That's one of the eye-opening questions Robin J. DiAngelo poses in her book, White Fragility: Why It's so Hard for White People to Talk about Racism. This is not an easy book to read, but it does help unpack why many whites are racially unaware of the dynamics of racism that underscore our culture and why they can be so defensive when it comes up. It also shows how differently people are using the same terminology which adds to the complication of discussing race. 'White fragility' is actually a form of bullying because it makes it difficult for people to engage us in a conversation we al need to share. This is the first of a two-parter that will conclude on July 10.
