#Racism and #WhiteFragility

Important question to raise.

Please read this entire thread, and watch the youtube clips. (Yes, I have watched all, and three times now). This is important if we are going to overcome our internal racism.
Animus is NOT a required component in racism.
#Racism is by-product of #institutionalpower.

#WhiteFragility preserves 'order' whether or not intended.
Important to remember.
#WhitePrivilege, #InstitutionalRacism manifests sometimes in the form of blaming the blacks. It becomes 'code word bonding' and wittingly or unwittingly goes to preserve the status quo. Knowingly or otherwise, it is #WhiteFragility.

She had a book out by then:

Watch from the viewpoint of another expert and who is deeply impacted.
Book: "White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism" | Dr. Robin DiAngelo
Book club reading encouraged.

🚨MUST WATCH Dr. DiAngelo on "White Fragility"

#Racism does not require animus.

"It is not a matter of good or bad.. It is a matter of inevitability and taking responsibility for it"

Watch Dr. Robin DiAngelo at Brown Univ.

#Racism does not require animus. #WhiteFragility is real. It is esp. bad coming from white progressives.
This is a July 2019 post.

This video also has discussion of some more topics, including #SystemicRacism, and discrimination against #women that goes well beyond Misogyny, in the context of discussion of #InstitutionalPower, and #Oppression.

#WhiteFragility #Racism #WhitePrivilege #InstitutionalRacism

(I meant to add this in the thread... Will be adding next time and rebroadcast the thread.)
A reminder here that #racism happens with or without animus. With animus, it becomes #bigotry.

There is a lot of silent racism around us. We on the #progressive left can work on it once we are willing to work hard to recognize it within and around us.

Thanks reading & Retweet.
