Social justice educator Robin DiAngelo’s book, “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism”, is one of a number of books on race topping bestseller lists as many people seek to educate themselves amid protests against racism and racist policing. In the book, she invites white people to examine their role in upholding systemic racism and to confront the defensiveness or “fragility” she says they can exhibit when challenged on their ideas about race. We’ll talk to DiAngelo about her book, the ongoing protests and her thoughts on what white people can do to address racism.
