DiAngelo is an anti-racist educator and she is sharing in this book the phenomenon of white fragility. This book allows the readers to understand that racism is a practice that is not restricted to ‘bad people.’ Instead, she discusses the defensive moves that white people make when they are racially challenged. White fragility appears in a range of emotions like fear, anger, and guilt. It also appears to include silence and argumentation.
