‘White Fragility’, Late Night Live, ABC Radio National, 15.08.18
‘Robin DiAngelo is a social justice and anti-racism educator, and she says she specialises in making white people feel uncomfortable.
She argues that the overt racism of people like Queensland Senator Fraser Anning is a smaller part of the problem than we realise. A more pernicious form of racism, she argues, is the lack of consciousness that progressives have about their own white privilege.
Her book is called White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism.’
