Robin DiAngelo: Matt and Chris struggle with their fragility

Decoding the Gurus

Racism is all around. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds white people together. And if you try to deny it, it only makes it stronger. That's Robin DiAngelo's thesis, anyway, and she calls this dark force (and the book that made her famous) White Fragility. You know you've got white fragility if you refuse to accept the truth of white fragility. Also, all white people have it. So that's pretty straightforward at least. How do you fight the curse of whiteness? Well, it's a lifelong journey of 'Doing the Work', but one thing's for sure: it starts with reading books like White Fragility and attending seminars well... like hers.DiAngelo's been out of the discourse recently, as far as we can tell, busy beavering away on new books like Nice Racism: How Progressive White People Perpetuate Racial Harm and dismantling white supremacy via corporate group therapy sessions. However, in our original show blurb, we promised to cover 'gurus from Jordan Peterson to Robin DiAngelo', so here we are. Now she's no longer this week's hot culture war topic that's getting people (...racists probably) all riled up, it's the perfect time to cross this particular Pokemon off our list. We listened to a lecture she gave in 2018, where she helpfully lays out the key aspects of her theory. There's so much in store for listeners this week. You'll be able to thrill to the anecdote of how DiAngelo herself was disgustingly racist to a colleague, be shocked as Chris once again references Northern Ireland's colourful history and tries to deflect his people's obvious guilt onto the English, be amazed as Matthew courageously confronts his settler-colonial privilege, and learn the real story of the first African American baseball player to cross the colour line (as told by DiAngelo).So join the intrepid duo as they embark on this neverending journey to interrogate their whiteness. And maybe - verrrry carefully - try to be just a little bit critical of DiAngelo's arguments without axiomatically proving themselves hopelessly racist.

EP 83: White Fragility with Dr. Robin DiAngelo

In The Margins

In this episode, Ralph Newell is joined by Dr. Robin DiAngelo, affiliate associate professor of education at the University of Washington and author of White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism, which was released in June 2018 and debuted on The New York Times Bestsellers List, where it remained for over three years. Tune in as Dr. Robin DiAngelo discusses what “white fragility” is and why, while society’s racial inequality is not the fault of white people individually, it is the individual’s responsibility to help address it. KEY POINTS: - Dr. Robin DiAngelo’s path to racial and social justice education - Being white and poor versus being black and poor - Is white the default? - Why racial illiteracy is not benign, neutral, or innocent - What is white fragility? - Does everyone have racist tendencies or bias? QUOTABLES: “When people say that learning about enslavement causes white children to feel guilt, why do you assume the white child can only identify with the slaveholder?” “A hallmark of white homes is that we certainly are not educated on our racial history. We know that and the efforts that are at play today will make it literally illegal for us to be educated on our racial history.” “The ultimate goal is that we come together across these divides. But white people are not in great shape to do that. We are racially illiterate. Most of us can't even answer the question, what does it mean to be white. Then you throw us in a room together and say, ‘let's talk about race and racism,’ and a lot of damage gets done.” GUEST RESOURCES: Learn more about Dr. Robin DiAngelo: robindiangelo.com PRODUCTS / RESOURCES: Watch this video and others on our YouTube channel: youtube.com/user/Diversediversedivers Visit the Diverse: Issues In Higher Education website: diverseeducation.com Or follow us on social media: Twitter: twitter.com/diverseissues Instagram: instagram.com/diverseissuesinhighereducation Facebook: facebook.com/DiverseIssuesInHigherEducation/ Linkedin: linkedin.com/company/diverse-issues-in-higher-education Transcription services are available upon request.

“Nice Racism” and the Truth about Critical Race Theory with Dr. Robin DiAngelo

Uncommon Ground with Van Jones

“This is a terrifying moment in our country – it's literally illegal to teach that racism exists. But most white people live segregated lives. And I think the most powerful message of white supremacy is that I could live, love, work, play, die in racial segregation with no sense whatsoever that anything of value has been lost.” There’s been a lot of discussion recently about white fragility, critical race theory (CRT), systemic racism, and more – but what does any of this actually mean? And how can we talk about these things in ways that don't further backlash against progress, or leave white folks feeling an unhelpful amount of guilt? How did we go from the racial awakening of 2020 to the anti-CRT backlash of 2022?Van Jones sits down with Dr. Robin DiAngelo, bestselling author of White Fragility and Nice Racism, to discuss the history of racism in America, how we got to where we are today, and how we can approach these difficult but necessary conversations – so we can forge a better future. New episodes of Uncommon Ground with Van Jones release weekly, every Wednesday.Have a story about bringing up issues of race with others, or something you’ve done to reach out to someone who sees things differently than you do?

AWW22 Nice Racism - Robin DiAngelo

Adelaide Writers' Week

Chaired by Paul Barclay. The title of Robin DiAngelo’s last international bestseller entered the lexicon: White Fragility, describing the defensive response from White people when called out for things they have said or done that have caused unintended racial hurt or offence. In Nice Racism, Robin draws on her background as a sociologist and an educator to explain how well-intentioned White progressives can cause racial harm, whether by romanticising People of Colour or expecting them to educate. An important if uncomfortable discussion on how to be a true ally.
