Author Kerry Connelly will take you on a journey through the white supremacist history of America (and the White Empire in general), how lies, self-deception, language, and miseducation enforce white supremacy, how our justice system oppresses people of color, and how we white people lay claim to the bodies and spirits of Black, indigenous, and other people of color. The chapters in this book are full of inspirational and lesson-rich stories about the expanding awareness of White social justice advocates and activists who grappled with their White privilege and their early socialization and decided to work against structural injustice and personal prejudice. Kerry Connelly Westminster John Knox Press, pages Reviewed by Katina Sharp I recently purchased a new sofa. It is buttery soft and squishy plush and reclines, and it should have been the most comfortable sitting I have ever done. What a waste.

Confronting Your Role in Racial Injustice by Kerry Connelly is a book “by a white person for white people.” A good white racist is defined as “a well-intentioned person of European descent who is nonetheless complicit in a culture of systemic racism.”.

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP This workshop is for white people who want to challenge the racism around them — and in their own heads and hearts — and who are searching for a way to strengthen their work for racial justice. It’s for white folks who already do anti-racism work but want to develop their skills and deepen their approach. In this vital, necessary, and beautiful book' (Michael Eric Dyson), antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and “allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to ‘bad people’ (Claudia Rankine). Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, . The United States is in the midst of a domestic terrorism crisis. I've picked out 19 must-read books about white supremacy and white nationalism, which should help you understand why racist. The "Orange is the New Black" star's post has gained him plenty of praise for actively trying to educate himself on issues regarding race, but it also serves as a powerful example to other white people and allies on how, sometimes, one of the best ways to better understand racism is to just pick up a book.

“White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People To Talk About Racism” by Robin DiAngelo Amazon Feel a sudden rush of indignation upon reading the phrase “white fragility”? Much of Robin DiAngelo’s book is dedicated to pulling back the veil on so-called pillars of whiteness: assumptions that prop up racist beliefs without white people realizing it. Photograph by. In the wake of protests against racism and police brutality across America, The 21st talked with Northern Illinois University professor Joseph Flynn, Jr. He wrote a book called “ White Fatigue: Rethinking Resistance for Social Justice. ”. Flynn speaks about his mental health in regards to the racism he experienced growing up, the meaning of 'white fatigue' and systemic racism. Layla F. Saad started an Instagram challenge to call out white supremacist behaviors and white privilege. This book highlights the day challenge, what she learned, and how white people can do better. This book is also currently backordered, but remember that the need for anti-racism won’t stop in just a few weeks.
