  • Misha
    This is a powerful, essential book that encapsulates much of what DiAngelo has been cogently laying out in other articles and speeches. I appreciated having the thinking I have heard her articulate at events I have attended in one place. I am honored to host DiAngelo at my library for the release of...

    The book raises striking and specific points about how as whites we have biases toward race while pretending we are colorblind. She states specific examples, and outlays practical way forward. Most of the lower star ratings of this book seem to be exhibiting the exact fragility she outlines, and rea...

    Robin DiAngelo comes hard in this one and takes no prisoners.

    This book is written by a white person for other whites.Most of what she writes is common sense but no doubt useful for white folks struggling to not feel attacked when racism is discussed.I was annoyed at remark about 25% in where she points out that she isn't a fan of black history month or black ...

    This short, focused book was a really fantastic learning experience for me! I appreciated how Diangelo integrated academic concepts while still keeping the book very accessible for non-academics. I recognized a lot of my own reactions and those of other whites in discussions of race and racism in wh...
