- Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism
- By: Robin DiAngelo
- Narrated by: Amy Landon
- Length: 6 hrs and 20 mins
These are the ways in which ordinary white people react when it is pointed out to them that they have done or said something that has - unintentionally - caused racial offence or hurt. After, all, a racist is the worst thing a person can be, right? But these reactions only serve to silence people of colour, who cannot give honest feedback to 'liberal' white people lest they provoke a dangerous emotional reaction. Robin DiAngelo coined the term 'White Fragility' in 2011 to describe this process and is here to show us how it serves to uphold the system of white supremacy.
Dangerously devoid of reality

narrator very poor
a very important piece of writing an opportunity to exam my own part of white race.
unfortunately it sounded like a Google text to speech was reading it. very it too hard to listen to the tone and rythem of narrator for very long.

Brisbane, 1983: A lost father, a mute brother, a mum in jail, a heroin dealer for a stepfather and a notorious crim for a babysitter. It's not as if Eli's life isn't complicated enough already. He's just trying to follow his heart, learning what it takes to be a good man, but life just keeps throwing obstacles in the way - not least of which is Tytus Broz, legendary Brisbane drug dealer. But Eli's life is about to get a whole lot more serious. He's about to fall in love. And, oh yeah, he has to break into Boggo Road Gaol on Christmas Day, to save his mum.
Hard to press stop!

really enjoyed listening
struggled at first to concentrate but quickly got swept up in the world of Eli bell. great story telling and the reader did well with the characters.
