Dr. Robin DiAngelo Talks Whiteness, Fragility, and Engaging in Better Discourse in Progressive Spaces

I finally got a chance to sit down with Dr. Robin DiAngelo. We had a great conversation about white fragility, white supremacy, and addressing these issues within Progressive spaces. Dr. DiAngelo has been a diversity trainer and works on deconstructing white privilege and addressing white fragility. She has a solid piece called “My Class Didn’t Trump My Race: Using Oppression to Face Privilege” that’s worth checking out!

I have included a few of her articles are included below but you should definitely look her up as she has a lot of work worth reading!

    I just stumbled upon your site and am excited about the treasures I have found here. I just listened to Robin DiAngelo and would like to thank you for making the podcast available. I am a 68 year old white woman and over the last six months I have been doing the work to actually become the open and tolerant person I always thought I was. When I swallowed the bitter pill of acknowledging my own racism I learned how not to use my white weapons to harm people of color and indigenous people. I believe it is the work of whites to enlighten other whites about the misconception of the meaning of racism. In that way we whites will be able to let down our defenses and work with people of color/indigenous to dismantle this insidious system. Again, thank you for the wonderful programs. I will be listening to every one of them.

      I am so bad about checking the comments. I’m in the process of revamping my site. Thank you so much for your feedback and for listening!
