Book cover for White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism
We consider a challenge to our racial worldviews as a challenge to our very identities as good, moral people. Thus, we perceive any attempt to connect us to the system of racism as an unsettling and unfair moral offense.
