White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo"White fragility refers to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors 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."
