Produktbeschreibung
An incisive follow-up to the New York Times bestseller White Fragility asserting that it is white progressives who are responsible for inflicting the most daily harm on people of color. Racism will not be interrupted by a hug or a smile. Dismantling white supremacy requires white people to commit to a lifetime of education and accountability. Often touting their own liberal credentials as evidence, white progressives do not see themselves as racist and therefore, have not developed the skills necessary for examining their role in perpetuating racism. This is because white progressives are often steeped in a culture of niceness which is animated by a belief that racism is limited to bad individuals who commit intentionally violent acts. The flipside to this logic is the idea that a nice person with good intentions could never be a racist. But that's simply not the case. Racism is a system in which all white people are implicated. Continuing the work she began in White Fragility, DiAngelo challenges white readers to rethink their ideas about racism and to confront their role in maintaining it. She identifies common moves white progressives make to telegraph their niceness such as avoiding social discomfort, focusing on connections and commonalities, privileging concern for the feelings of perpetrators of racism over the victims, elevating intentions over impact, and credentialing. Writing candidly about her own missteps and struggles, DiAngelo urges other white progressives to align their practice with their values. Drawing on over 20 years working as an anti-racist educator, DiAngelo models a path forward, helping white readers to face their complicity and embrace humility.

Rezensionen
Once again Robin DiAngelo brilliantly breaks it down, giving us the language and concepts to cut straight to the heart and expose the 'nicer' forms of racism. In this unflinching follow-up to her revelatory work White Fragility, she uses her insider status, over two decades studying and challenging progressive white people, and unwavering courage to take the conversation to the next level. With eloquence, clarity, and startling insight, she explains why white progressives cause the most daily harm to Black and other folks of color, and demands better. Personal transformation is an act of anti-racism, and DiAngelo has just given progressive white America the field guide Michael Eric Dyson, New York Times best-selling author
