Unpacking™ White Fragility: Book Discussion
Thursday November 8 // 6:30-8:30 PM /
Robin DiAngelo, lecturer at the University of Washington, created the term “white fragility”. She has noted that “white privilege can be thought of as unstable racial equilibrium”.When this equilibrium is challenged, the resulting racial stress can become intolerable and trigger a range of defensive responses. DiAngelo defines these behaviors as white fragility.
