    • This book is for guilty feeling white folks and blacks who need to gravitate to oppression. There is no white fragility. What leads people out of the left is commercial trash like this. There is no fear in white or anyone else about anything. There is no open forum and there is no out let for an open discussion anyway. The generalization is what allows whites to leave the left. There should be a book about racial healing and not foster disorder by identity politics.
    • Enjoyed this book thoroughly. I recommend this book to all it’s a must read.
    • This is a liberating book. This book's biggest contribution is its redefinition of racism . It allows the white reader to breathe a sigh of relief and just get to work to uncover our blind spots. The book is specific with examples of the embedded thinking that drives our racist behaviors, and it invites us to take full responsibility for our racism . We can stop expecting to be rescued by anyone! The author makes a distinction that allows us to shed psychological guilt ( It gives a brilliant assertion of the function of white guilt which keeps racism snugly in place) and allows for the giving and receiving of feedback that make authentic relationships among the races possible. White Fragility is a profoundly hopeful book which can help us become a better people and a stronger country (USA), because it can help us to finally acknowledge the truth of how we built America and why we collude to keep t h e status quo.
    • My sister wrote this amazing book, easy to read. It opens your eyes to how we all are responsible for how we see our whiteness and our privilege compared to people of color! A must read!!
    • This was a truly transformative read. As a liberal white woman, I cannot recommend this book enough. It’s both an understanding of why we white people have such discomfort discussing race, and a call to action.
