Default The Dehumanizing Condescension of White Fragility

This is likely one of the best analysis I've seen about this recent book (written in 2018). The idea that one is 'guilty' of being a certain skin color, and the claim that a 'White' person is innately racist and owe others our humiliation (humility is not humiliation) in public displays of begging forgiveness. That thinking Blacks don't even want this circus....

To DiAngelo, any failure to do this “work,” as adherents of this paradigm often put it, renders one racist.

Let's have a conversation about race. Fine, if you are white get on your knees and confess white privilege. That's the only thing you are allowed to say. Otherwise you are a racist.

DiAngelo is an education professor and—most prominently today—a diversity consultant who argues that whites in America must face the racist bias implanted in them by a racist society.
So the assumption is that all white people are inherently racist. Wow.

It sounds like the people that feel guilty for being white, just want to spread the guilt out, so that they don't feel as guilty.

It's the typical lefties that want to force others to accept their views on every subject. They can't allow any other thought or ideas.
