I’ve seen this idea of white fragility all over Reddit for the past year and I frankly find it deplorable.
The crux of most of the posts/discussions concerning white fragility follow the basic format of: someone says something racially questionable toward white people, white person says “hey, don’t say that” or “I don’t appreciate that”, then someone calls the white person racist/fragile for not tolerating racism toward them, then the white person defends themselves as not a racist and is subsequently confirmed as a racist.
This person is then called fragile for not tolerating racism toward them and then is deemed racist through the infallible logic of “the only people who have say that their not racist are racists”
This isn’t a helpful way of thinking because no one should be called fragile or mocked for calling out racist behavior or for defending themselves against slander/libel.
Edit1: IDK if I can put this here but I think it’s a Δ, I have no issue with people being called fragile, but there’s no need to create a broad idea of white fragility, if someone is being a dick, call them out. But dont bring their race into it.
Edit2: again don’t know if this counts as a Δ but I have now read the definition from the book “White Fragility” that doesn’t change my general opinion but the original definition of there term exist to antagonize
