White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism
I put myself on the wait list for this at the library nearly a year ago. Due to all the attention anti-racist books have received, it only arrived a few days ago. I'm two chapters in and I can see why this book makes people uncomfortable. One - it was designed to do that. Two - it's asking white people to take a good hard look at themselves and it forces people to admit things they don't want.
As a white, cis-gendered woman working at an HBCU, I know I have to be even more cognizant of my own biases and internalized racism. It's not a comfortable act, but it's important to learn so that we grow and improve.
