So much easier to read without the wringing drama of the full-length book. I used it for participation in a church group discussion. The impression I get from this author is if you are white, you are always at fault if you are offended or you offend. You are always at fault for misunderstanding or being misunderstood. I have lived 15 years in a majority African-American community at peace and taught in an elementary school with about 5 percent white enrollment. I do agree that white fragility exists among those who are segregated, but not to the extreme degree the author purports, especially for those of us that choose to live and work in integrated populations. 28 pages.

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 show 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.
